Born To Be Alive - Patrick Hernandez

Born To Be Alive
PATRICK HERNANDEZ will be remembered for one of the most iconic Eurodisco anthems of the seventies. 1978's hypnotic ‘Born to Be Alive’ reached the top ten all over Europe (including number 10 in the UK) and eventually made number 16 on the American pop chart after it had topped the charts in France, Austria, New Zealand, Norway and Sweden.
The song is the centrepiece of its parent album of the same name which makes its international CD debut on Cherry Pop. The title song is featured here in three mixes.
Hernandez is a Frenchman of Spanish, Austrian and Italian heritage. On a historical note, Madonna performed with Hernandez as a dancer early in her career before achieving superstardom.
BORN TO BE ALIVE also features the follow up hits ‘Back To Boogie’ which made the Dutch charts, and ‘Disco Queen’ which became a Belgian hit and US Disco charter.
BORN TO BE ALIVE is complete with liner notes and bonus tracks. It is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Disco and seventies Pop fans out there!

Jermaine Stewart hailed from the mid-west of the USA and became a successful solo singer after spells as a dancer on the renowned US TV show Soul Train, a brief stint with Shalamar and backing vocalist on Culture Club's 1983 album "Colour By Numbers". It is reported that the band introduced Jermaine to Arista supremo Clive Davis and a deal was done. Jermaine Stewart released 4 original US albums (3 in the UK) and enjoyed chart success, both single and album between 1983-1990. Tragically Jermaine Stewart died in 1997.

Morning stands on tiptoe
Released on 17/08/09. Though Toni Arthur is probably most widely remembered these days as the vivacious presenter of 1970s children's TV shows Playschool and Playaway, she and her husband Dave first came to prominence during the 1960s British folksong revival.

Released by the Transatlantic label in 1967, Dave and Toni Arthur's debut LP Morning Stands On Tiptoe remains a cornerstone album of the genre, a work of astonishing power and vitality that introduced a whole raft of traditional songs to the thriving British folk club scene. Taken from the original master tapes, this definitive reissue of a seminal album comes complete with a 16-page booklet that includes new liner notes, fresh quotes and a reproduction of Dave and Toni's original notes on each song together with some stunning, previously unpublished photos of the duo.

· Every A and B side issued by "guitarist’s guitarist” John Miles for Decca Records between 1975 and 1979 is what you’ll find on this 17 track release

 · Includes the world-wide smash "Music” as well as John’s other hit singles – "Highfly” (No.17), "Remember Yesterday” (No.32) and "Slow Down” (No.10)

· The wall of picture sleeves featured in the booklet will leave even the richest John Miles collector in the poor house!

Press:-

"This collection of music of the past (no music of the future; that would be impossible sci-fi) showcases Miles as a top talent who simply needed a firm musical direction.”  

-Geoff Barton / Classic Rock May 2012  

"With all four singer/songwriter/guitarist John Miles’ Decca albums already released by sister label Lemon, the 7T’s imprint releases one which is arguably stronger than the others, as it rounds up the 17 songs Miles released as singles A- and B-sides during his Decca tenure.”

Get Down: Expanded Edition
•    HUGELY POPULAR DISCO CLASSIC RETURNS TO CD!

•    Gene Chandler (born Eugene Dixon in 1937 in Chicago, Illinois.) is best remembered for the R&B and Pop #1 "Duke Of Earl” on which he sang lead vocal as part of the doo-wop group The Dukays. Chandler is hugely admired by soul fans as one of the leading names from the Chicago scene along with Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield, the latter of which often wrote for and produced the singer.

•    Having enjoyed a string of R&B hits through the 60’s and 70’s on various labels including a cover of James Brown’s "There Was A Time” (R&B #22) and "Groovy Situation” (R&B #8) Chandler moved on to become executive vice president at Chi Sound Records, where he released four disco funk albums between ’78 and ‘81.

•    GET DOWN (R&B #12/Pop #47) was the first of these albums and was released in 1978. This great set of funky disco tracks spawned two R&B hit singles with "Tomorrow I May Not Feel The Same” reaching #51, and the title track "Get Down”, his biggest hit in 13 years, peaking at #3, Pop #53, and going all the way to #11 in the UK.

•    BBR is very proud to present GET DOWN, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks.
