Big Girls Don’t Cry (Expanded Edition) - Weather Girls

Big Girls Don’t Cry (Expanded Edition)


THE WEATHER GIRLS were Martha Wash and Izora Rhodes. The duo started out in the gospel group NOW (News of the World) before becoming backup singers with Sylvester in the late seventies. They were then named TWO TONS OF FUN and had a run of Disco hits on the Fantasy label.


The group then signed with Columbia Records and changed their name to The Weather Girls in 1982. The newly named duo’s first single IT'S RAINING MEN was quickly a massive club hit in the US, topping the Dance/Disco chart in 1982. Their debut album SUCCESS featured the hit single and was a US chart hit. Despite only being a minor pop hit at home, IT’S RAINING MEN became an international hit and eventually made number 2 in the UK in 1984. Since then it has become a massive anthem.

1985 saw the second album release by the duo under the name, The Weather Girls. BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY is another very well crafted pop/dance record for the duo, the recording of which was guided by producers Hank Medress and Jeff Kent.

BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY provided the dance floor hit ‘No One Could Ever Love You More Than Me,’ which peaked at #26 on the US dance charts and is featured here in extended form. ‘Well-A-Wiggy’ also charted making a respectable #76 on the US R&B charts and #107 Pop. Other notable tracks are the title track itself and an interesting cover of Canned Heat’s ‘Down On The Corner.’

Cherry Pop is very proud to present BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY, expertly re-mastered and complete with liner notes and bonus tracks. It is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Disco and ‘80s Pop fans out there!

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!

Watchin’ TV (With The Radio On)/You Can’t Get Off With Your Shoes On
· Barefoot Jerry was an American Southern rock and country rock band, based in Nashville, Tennessee, active from 1971 to 1977.

· It was composed of area studio musicians under the tutelage of Wayne Moss, and Mac Gayden (Barefoot Jerry was a store next to where Mac Gayden lived in the Smoky Mtns. and Barefoot Jerry the older fiddle playing man inside). Mac named the group from him. They were both lead guitarists of Area Code 615 and other 615 alumni.

· Barefoot Jerry's third and fourth albums, Watchin' TV and You Can't Get Off with Your Shoes On have enough moments to make them of interest to serious collectors and fans of early-'70s country-rock.

· These two albums from the bands mid-period, contain some of their finest work and are hard to get on CD. The albums have been re-mastered and contain new liner notes from Malcolm Dome and enhanced artwork

It's Been a Long Long Time
·       Not only were The Hep Stars Sweden’s biggest band in the Sixties, they were where Benny Andersson first tasted success before achieving world-wide fame with ABBA. Without The Hep Stars, there would have been no ABBA.
·       It's Been A Long Long Time was The Hep Stars’ fourth album, released in February 1968 and not issued outside Sweden. It was their only album for the Cupol label and RPM International adds the only non-album single the band issued on the label. RPM International’s reissue is the first time the album has been released in Europe outside Sweden.
·       The sought-after and rare It's Been A Long Long Time is a classic, harmony filled sunshine pop album. It was recorded in London in 1967 with producer Steve Clark, the associate of legendary American songwriter and singer Curt Boettcher. With Clark, The Hep Stars were the first to record Boettcher’s songs "Another Time” and "Would You Like To Go”, later released in America by Sagittarius. Other songs on It's Been A Long Long Time had been recorded in America by The Association and The Ballroom.
·       A missing link in the story of ABBA, The Hep Stars’ It's Been A Long Long Time would be a legendary album even if the band didn’t feature Benny Andersson.
