The Last Temptation: 20th Anniversary Edition - Alice Cooper

The Last Temptation: 20th Anniversary Edition
•    The main character in this "concept" album is a boy called Steven. Steven is afraid. Afraid of ghost stories, afraid of growing up... just afraid. That is, until he meets the mysterious Showman and his Theatre of the Real. Steven takes a ticket and watches the show on a dare, but getting out of the performance will be harder than he ever imagined. And then Steven learns what it is to be truly afraid...

•    After the more poppy, mainstream "Hey Stoopid" in 1991, which followed the worldwide smash "Trash" in 1989, the conceptual nature of "The Last Temptation" was a major departure from the two more commercially orientated predecessors, whilst resurrecting some of the darker, macabre themes from ealier in Alice's career. 

•    Alice Cooper's 20th studio album, "The Last Temptation" was originally
issued on the Epic label in July 1994.

•    Alice is joined on this record by Stef Burns on guitar, Greg Smith on bass, Derek Sherinian on keyboards and David Uosikkinen on drums, whilst Soundgarden's Chris Cornell guests on the songs 'Stolen Prayer' and 'Unholy War'.

•    The album's concept was also issued as a series of comics by famed
graphic novelist Neil Gaiman, and features cover artwork by Dave McKean, illustrated by Michael Zulli, which is also getting a 20th 
anniversary make-over.

•    For the fans that want more of the commercially orientated rock and metal that had given Alice huge hits, the album features the singles 'Lost In America' and 'It's Me'. The package will be issued in a  deluxe digipak, with 16 page booklet featuring an extensive essay and rare

Serious Slammin'
The Pointer Sisters were one of the most successful female groups the music industry has seen with 13 top 20 singles and eight top 40 albums shared between the US and UK pop charts. SERIOUS SLAMMIN’ was their ninth & final album with Richard Perry and saw him take the group into the harder electronic funk sound akin to Cameo/Gap Band hits of the period.
HE TURNED ME OUT was the first single and was also the opening theme to the cult movie Action Jackson. This single release saw the sisters return to the top 40 of the R&B and Dance charts.
The second single I’M IN LOVE was written by Jonathan Butler and Simon May and was originally a minor UK hit for Ruby Turner. The Pointer Sisters version became their final R&B hit on RCA Records as well as making the top 40 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart.
Featured as a bonus track on this edition of SERIOUS SLAMMIN’ is the 12” extended remix of BE THERE from Beverly Hills Cop 2. After the huge success of Neutron Dance, featured in Beverly Hills Cop, the Pointers were invited to contribute to the soundtrack of the follow up movie. BE THERE was produced by 80’s hit maker Narada Michael Walden fresh from his hits with Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin. The 12” remix featured here was mixed by Shep Pettibone and became the groups final hot 100 hit in 1987. This marks the first time the song has ever appeared on a Pointer Sisters album

Head On
Although best known today as the band where lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson served his Metal apprenticeship prior to joining those eater of worlds, Iron Maiden, Samson are still rightly regarded as one of the pivotal bands from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement of the 80s.
Taking their name from guitarist and leader, Paul Samson, the band first emerged in 1977 from the ashes of another eponymously named band, McCoy whose leader bassist John McCoy was headhunted for Ian Gillans’s eponymously named band, Gillan, following the vocalist’s departure from Deep Purple.
‘Head On’ was Samson’s second album released in June 1980 and along with Paul Samson and Bruce Dickinson (although then going by his stage name Bruce Bruce), bassist Chris Aylmer and drummer Thunderstick (noted for disguising his identity by wearing S&M masks and playing live in a steel cage), completed the line-up.
In deference to the crass cover artwork, the album boasts a breadth of writing and playing ability above much that the NOWBHM movement had to offer. Tracks such as ‘Vice Versa’, ‘Hunted’ and ‘Walking Out On You’ helped the album achieve the band’s highest ever chart placing of number 34. ‘Head On’ also displays perfectly the power and range of singer Dickinson whose vocal agility earned him the title, the Air Raid Siren, as well as showcasing Paul Samson’s considerable talent as a guitarist and writer and reinforces the loss to the metal community due to his death from cancer in 2002, aged just 49.
· Fully Re-mastered Collector’s Edition of Samson’s second album, one of the NWOBHMs premier outfits.
· Expanded to include 2 bonus tracks.
· 16 page booklet with story of the album sleeve-note and rare photos and images from the period.

Spirit: Expanded Edition
•    EARTH WIND & FIRE, due to Maurice White's untainted musical vision, are one of the most prominent "Pop” groups to emerge from the musical melting pot of the 1970's. Incorporating R&B, jazz, soul, funk, gospel, blues, rock and dance music into their repertoire, as well as very strong African and spiritual influences, EARTH, WIND & FIRE boast a succession of hit R&B and Pop singles and albums and are still producing high calibre music to this day. Classic tracks like "Shining Star,” "September,” "Boogie Wonderland,” "After The Love Has Gone” and "Let's Groove” have contributed to Maurice White and his cohorts stellar reputation among music fans.

•    SPIRIT, released in 1976, saw Maurice White embracing his spiritual side (hence the title) to a much greater degree. Regarded as one of the groups best albums (peaking at #2 R&B and Pop) SPIRIT gained multi-platinum sales and provided a wide range of song styles including the jazz-funk classic "Getaway” (R&B #1/Pop #12), and the funk/pop mid-tempo feel good grooves "Saturday Nite” (R&B #4/Pop #21/UK #17) and "On Your Face” (R&B #26). Throughout the album White's spiritual message and vision (part Afro-American Christianity, part Eastern philosophies) are present but never overbearing. The incredible ballad "Imagination” and the title track "Spirit,” both beautifully sung by EW&F vocalist of many years, Philip Bailey, exemplify the respectful, positive attitude and inclusiveness prevalent throughout the group’s career.

•    Having been a prominent session musician with Chess Records in the 60's White remained close with one of the labels most creative producers Charles Stepney, who became the main collaborator on many of the EW&F projects including SPIRIT. Sadly this was one of the last projects that the unique arranger/producer/session musician/multi-instrumentalist and songwriter worked on as he passed away in May of '76 aged only 45.

•    BBR is very proud to present SPIRIT, fully remastered and re-packaged complete with extensive liner notes, original artwork and extended bonus content including 2 tracks from the time that didn't appear on the original release as well as alternative versions of "Getaway,” Saturday Nite” and "Imagination.”

•    SPIRIT is essential listening for all R&B, Jazz, Soul, Funk, Gospel, Blues, Rock, Dance, Disco and Pop fans out there!
