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!

Three D
Little can be said about The Sound Of Philadelphia or Philadelphia International Records without mentioning The Three Degrees. This trio may have had more than 12 different women represent the group so far, but they remain one of the most memorable female vocal acts of the last 40+ years.

In 1979, The Three Degrees released their second album for Ariola Records, 3D, produced by Grammy Award winner Giorgio Moroder fresh from winning an Academy Award for his full movie score on Midnight Express and fellow Grammy Award and Academy Award winner Harold Faltermeyer. The album featured such hits as the fantastic driving beat of the US Dance hits JUMP THE GUN and SET ME FREE and a UK Top Ten hit, the hugely popular sweet and soulful, MY SIMPLE HEART. Other notable singles include the gorgeous funky Earth, Wind & Fire inspired ballad STARLIGHT and WITHOUT YOU.

BBR is proud to present this newly re-mastered and beautifully re-packaged expanded edition of THREE D, complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews with group members and Ariola Records President Robin Blanchflower along with added bonus tracks. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, this BBR Re-Master is a must have for all Soul, Disco and Girl-Group Pop fans.

The Three Degrees-Expanded Edition
The Three Degrees' Philadelphia International Records debut made quite an impact upon it's release in 1974.

Having been R&B hit makers for years, the group were no strangers to the American Soul Chart but the pairing of the group with Philadelphia's Gamble & Huff took them to an iconic level of appreciation. The top 20 album spawned the now classic UK #1 When Will I See You Again and the top 20 hit Year Of Decision. Also featured was their Philly debut single Dirty Ol' Man which topped the charts in the Netherlands, staving off the threat of Demis Roussos in the process!

In 1985 the Pointer Sisters released CONTACT, the first of 3 albums on RCA after their incredibly successful period with Planet Records.

The number one dance hit, DARE ME, written by David Innis and Sam Lorber, achieved #6 R&B and #11 Pop positions and climbed to #17 on the UK Pop charts.
