Something Special (Expanded Edition)
KOOL & THE GANG need no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 70’s and 80’s having sold over 70 million albums worldwide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as ‘Summer Madness,’ ‘Get Down On It,’ ‘Celebration’ and who could forget that slammin’ funk monster that features so heavily in Quentin Tarantino’s cult flick - Pulp Fiction; ‘Jungle Boogie.’

1981 brought with it the release of SOMETHING SPECIAL, Kool & The Gang’s 15th studio album, in the same year they would win Favourite Band, Duo or Group in the Soul/Rhythm & Blues category at the American Music Awards and would once again feature Grammy Award winner, Eumir Deodato’s special touch on production duties.

SOMETHING SPECIAL rose to #1 on Billboard’s Top Soul Albums and a top 20 position in the Billboard album chart along with reaching #10 in the U.K. becoming the bands most successful U.K. album to date spending 20 weeks in the charts as well as going Platinum in the U.S. and Gold in the U.K. in December of 1981 and April 1982, respectively.

Singles featured on SOMETHING SPECIAL include ‘Take My Heart (You Can Have It If You Want It)’ which shot to the top of the U.S. R&B chart while gaining top 20 spots on both the U.S. Pop and Dance charts while later achieving a top 30 position in the U.K. ‘Get Down On It’ followed and did even better landing at #10 U.S. Pop, #4 in the R&B charts and better still in the U.K. attaining a #3 position. Beyond that ‘Get Down On It’ has gone on to become one of the band’s most instantly recognizable hits. Kool & The Gang’s chart success didn’t stop there; ‘Steppin’ Out’ also went on to chart, landing an impressive #12 spot on both the U.S. R&B chart and U.K. singles chart.

BBR is proud to present SOMETHING SPECIAL This fully expanded and newly re-mastered edition comes complete with extended liner notes, including new interviews, and added bonus material.

As One (Expanded Edition)

KOOL & THE GANG need no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 70’s and 80’s having sold over 70 million albums worldwide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as ‘Summer Madness,’ ‘Get Down On It,’ ‘Celebration’ and who could forget that slammin’ funk monster that features so heavily in Quentin Tarantino’s cult flick - Pulp Fiction; ‘Jungle Boogie.’


1982 would see Kool & The Gang release AS ONE, their 16th studio album. AS ONE went on to become a U.S. Certified Gold album in November of 1982 helped by its top 30 position on the U.S. charts, and top 50 in the U.K. (spending 10 weeks in the U.K. album chart), while also climbing all the way to #5 on the U.S. R&B album chart. The legendary Grammy Award winning pianist, Eumir Deodato would once again take hold of production duties, assisted by Kool & The Gang. 

The first single release was ‘Big Fun,’ laden with a killer funky bass line and an equally impressive brass section; the single returned the group to the R&B top ten and UK top twenty. ‘Let’s Go Dancing (Ooh La La La)’ made the most noise on the chart front, earning an impressive top 30 position on the U.S. Pop charts like its predecessor and top 10 spots in both the U.S. R&B and U.K. charts. ‘Hi De Hi, Hi De Ho’ was also received well in the U.K. climbing to #29 on the U.K. charts while the third U.S. single, up-tempo, funky jam ‘Street Kids,’ became a further R&B chart hit.

Other notable tracks include the smooth and soulful album closer ‘Think It Over’ and the similarly paced title track.

BBR is proud to present AS ONE in fully expanded and newly re-mastered glory, complete with extensive liner notes including new interviews, and added bonus material.

Christopher H. "Chris" Jasper (born December 30, 1951, Cincinnati, Ohio) was an integral member of both The Isley Brothers and Isley-Jasper-Isley. He also went on to become a  successful solo artist and record producer, recording a number of his own solo albums, and producing artists for his New York based record label, Gold City Records. His keyboard and Moog synthesizer work was a primary ingredient of The Isley Brothers sound of the 1970s and 1980s.

Jasper is a classically trained musician and composer having studied at the Julliard School of Music in New York City where he received a degree in music composition. After jamming with Ernie and Marvin Isley, Jasper was asked to join their older brothers group, The Isley Brothers in 1969, with Jasper first appearing on the groups "It’s Your Thing” album from the same year.

After unprecedented success with the Isley Brothers throughout the 1970’s Jasper, along with Ernie and Marvin Isley, formed Isley-Jasper-Isley in 1984 and had success with the huge hit ‘Caravan Of Love,’ written and produced by Jasper.

Jasper released his first solo album SUPERBAD in 1987 on which he was able to fully realize his own sound. The title track was released as a single and with its message of positive education gave Jasper a #3 R&B hit. There are many other strong tracks on the album including the #12 R&B hit ‘One Time Love,’ ‘Earthquake,’ ‘Dance For The Dollar’ and ‘Soul Train.’

BBR is proud to present SUPERBAD in fully expanded and newly re-mastered glory, complete with extensive liner notes that feature a new interview with Chris and added bonus material.
