Reel Life: Deluxe Edition - Boy Meets Girl

Reel Life: Deluxe Edition
Boy Meets Girl is an American pop-music duo consisting of keyboardist and vocalist George Merrill and singer Shannon Rubicam. They are perhaps best known for their hit song ‘Waiting for a Star to Fall’  and for writing two number one hits ‘How Will I Know’ and ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)’ performed by Whitney Houston.

The group released their second album, Reel Life, which featured the single ‘Waiting for a Star to Fall’in 1988.  With this selection, after years of writing and composing songs for other artists, the duo earned mainstream success in their own right. In the United States, ‘Waiting For a Star to Fall’ peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 . The song reached #9 in the UK and was also a top ten Australian hit in April 1989. It was featured in the movie Three Men and a Little Lady.

Reportedly, the song was inspired by an actual falling star that Merrill and Rubicam had seen at one of Whitney Houston's concerts at the Greek Theatre. The duo submitted the song to Houston for consideration on her next album, but her producer at the time, Clive Davis, rejected it. The song was also recorded by Belinda Carlisle for her 1987 release Heaven On Earth at the insistence of her label. But Carlisle disliked the song, and she ultimately refused to include it on the album,

Megaton
A thrilling, no-holds-barred, heavy rock treatment
of a clutch of riff-based but fairly commercial pop tunes,
Megaton'ssole album has plenty of admirers these days. Perhaps
this should be a rock label staple, but the LPs origins are more pop
than that with more akin to those ranks of over looked production
library classics recorded for one purpose and taking on a different
guise and importance to collectors years later. For Megaton is
the creative inspiration of vocal harmony leader Les Humphries (as in
The Les Humphries Singers, big hit makers in early 70'sGermany) and his
writing partner/right hand LHS man, Jimmy Bilsbury. Perhaps
having the likes of future Uriah Heep vocalist John Lawton in the midst
of the LHS was an inspiration, but whatever, Humphries nose for a
commercial opportunity sniffed out the Free, Led Zep hard rock/ blues
rock market and he duly delivered. A 1971 Deram release, first in
Germany, other territories later inc. South America, and the UK -where
today such a pressing can set you back over £700 ! RPM presents
it'sfirst legitimate reissue on CD.

A unqiue opportunity to buy a collector's item for all fans of Hazell Dean. This album was originally recorded 1974 as a promotional album for the catalogue of songwriting giants Bacharach & David.

The collection features the original 11 track album on CD for the very first time.

This album has been mastered by a vinyl restoration expert using all the latest techniques to ensure the best possible sound. The original master tapes are long since lost.

This is Cherry Pop's 3rd Hazell Dean release following the reissues of 'Heart First' (CRPOP44) and 'Always - Deluxe Edition' (CRPOPD96) with more projects in the pipeline.

The definitive doyenne of the Hi-NRG scene, Essex-born Hazell Dean found mainstream success in 1984 with the #6 hit ‘Searchin’ (Gotta Find A Man)’ on the Proto label. The Stock Aitken Waterman-produced follow-up, ‘Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go)’, reached #4, giving the Hit Factory team their first Top Ten single and marking the beginning of a partnership with Hazell which continued until 1991. After the release of her 1985 album "Heart First", Hazell signed with EMI and a succession of releases over the next three years culminated with "Always", widely regarded as her best work. Hazell released an album last year on Energise Records, as well as maintaining her profile as an evergreen club performer.

Lucid

Esoteric Antenna is pleased to announce the release of the new album by acclaimed guitarist MATT STEVENS. Noted for his work as both a solo artist and as a member of Fierce and The Dead, "Lucid” sees Matt joined by a host of guest musicians including drummer Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson), Bass guitarists Lorenzo Feliciati (Naked Truth), Charlie Cawood (Knifeworld) and Kev Feazey, keyboard players Jem Godfrey (Frost) and Emmett Elvin (Chrome Hoof / Guapo), violinist Chrissie Caulfield (Helicopter Quartet / Crippled Black Phoenix), vibe player Jon Hart and Nicholas Wyatt Duke (Trojan Horse) on Spoken Word.

Speaking about his new album Matt states; "Lucid took three years as I really wanted to make this one a significant step up from the previous albums. It’s inspired by a bit of a dark time, but hopefully it’s an uplifting record. I’m so proud of the people who played on it, working with people like Pat Mastelotto on drums from King Crimson and Jem Godfrey from Frost* was amazing but all the players really were outstanding. Stuart Marshall (Fierce And The Dead) and Charlie Cawood (Knifeworld) were the rhythm section for a lot of the tracks. And it was great to have Chrissie back who played violin on the previous records. It’s a record that reflects my love of Jesu and Celtic Frost as much as the Mahavishnu Orchestra and King Crimson or even Peter Gabriel and I’m really proud of it. If you’re not going to take risks and try and do something interesting what’s the point?”

As befits this most unique musician, "Lucid” is a carefully crafted work, and one that is surely to be one of the Progressive Rock highlights of 2014.

Hollywood Party Tonight (Expanded Edition)
ODYSSEY started life as The Lopez Singers, a female vocal group from Connecticut, in 1968. The original line up was the three Lopez sisters Carmen, Lillian and Louise, however Carmen left soon after and was replaced by Filipino singer and bassist Tony Reynolds. It was this line-up which went on to have worldwide success with the hit single ‘Native New Yorker’ in 1977, taken from their debut self-titled LP "Odyssey," which was the first of their albums to be re-issued by BBR.

HOLLYWOOD PARTY TONIGHT was the follow up to their successful debut and was originally released in 1978. By this point Tony Reynolds had left the fold to be replaced by Billy McEachern, who helped the group take their sophomore LP to #72 on the US R&B album chart and #123 on the Billboard 200. Despite this line-up change the group maintained their soft, laid back style of soul-pop with inflections of jazz and Caribbean sounds to greater depths than on their debut LP.

Stand out tracks on HOLLYWOOD PARTY TONIGHT are the singles ‘Single Again/What Time Does The Balloon Go Up,’ and ‘Lucky Star,’ of which both are represented here in their single mixes as bonus tracks. Other great tracks that show the depth of styles on the LP are ‘Hey Bill,’ ‘You Wouldn't Know A Real Love If It Walked Right Up, Kissed You On The Cheek And Said Hello Baby’ and ‘Pride.’  

BBR is very proud to bring you the first ever CD release anywhere in the world of HOLLYWOOD PARTY TONIGHT, completely remastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes, interviews and bonus content. HOLLYWOOD PARTY TONIGHT is an essential purchase for all R&B, Soul, Pop and Disco fans out there!

Freedom For The Stallion (Expanded Edition)
THE HUES CORPORATION was a soul trio formed in 1969 in Santa Monica, California by band mates St. Clair Lee, Fleming Williams and Hubert Ann Kelley. Their first break came in 1972 with the Blaxploitation film, Blacula, in which they made a small appearance, in addition to recording three songs for the soundtrack.  It was shortly following this that they were signed to RCA where they released their debut album, FREEDOM FOR THE STALLION, now making its international CD debut on BBR!

The Allen Toussaint penned, FREEDOM FOR THE STALLION - beautifully arranged by Gene Page at the height of his success with Barry White - was The Hues Corporation's first RCA single. The timely, socially conscious message in the song, with its anthemic quality, was a worthy introduction of The Hues Corporation to the American public, as it peaked at #63 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

Keen to illustrate the versatility of their new signing, RCA decided to issue the more light-hearted and pop orientated, MIRACLE MAKER (SWEET SOUL SHAKER) as the bands second single. The song was penned by legendary Brill Building songwriters Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil and seemed destined to take on the top 40, however, unbeknownst to RCA it was another album cut that was creating a stir in a new bubbling underground scene that was poised to spread across the world from New York City. 

Penned by Waldo T. Holmes, ROCK THE BOAT was one of the key tracks selected by underground DJs in New York’s burgeoning early disco scene and when RCA execs learned of this, promotions of the previous single were abandoned, and ROCK THE BOAT was rush released as the albums third single in February of 1974. ROCK THE BOAT rose to an impressive #3 on the R&B charts while doing even better on the Hot 100, becoming the first record of the Disco era to top the charts. Despite the popular success of the singles, the album takes inspiration from some of the best vocal groups of the time including The 5th Dimension and The Undisputed Truth, showcasing the true variation of musical styles contained within

BBR is proud to present this fully expanded edition of THE HUES CORPORATION – FREEDOM FOR THE STALION complete with extensive liner notes, interviews and added bonus content, making this a must have for all R&B, Disco, Funk and Soul fans out there!
