A Fifth Of Beethoven: Expanded Edition - Walter Murphy Band

A Fifth Of Beethoven: Expanded Edition
•    WALTER MURPHY was born in 1952 in New York City and by the age of 4 attended music lessons held by renowned theatre and motion picture organist, Rosa Rio. In 1970 he enrolled in the Manhattan School Of Music where he wrote for the institutes Jazz ensemble.

•    In 1972 after a friend introduced Walter to Doc Severinsen, the musical director of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, he presented him with some of his arrangements and Severinsen liked them so much he had The Tonight Show Band play them live. Unfortunately with the relocation of The Tonight Show production to California, that connection was lost and so Murphy spent the next two years writing jingles for advertisements and the popular TV show Big Blue Marble.

•    While writing a disco song for a commercial in 1974 the producer gave him an idea to update classical music and WALTER MURPHY made a demo tape which caught the ear of Private Stock Records owner Larry Uttal who was particularly interested in his rendition of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 In C Minor.

•    Originally released under the name of WALTER MURPHY & THE BIG APPLE BAND the song became a smash hit reaching #1 on the Hot 100 chart after climbing for 19 weeks. Following the singles success A FIFTH OF BEETHOVEN was released on an album of the same name and also included a notable rendition of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight Of The Bumblebee entitled FLIGHT 76 peaking at #44 on the Billboard Hot 100.

•    HOT SHOT RECORDS is proud to present this lovingly re-mastered, fully expanded edition of WALTER MURPHY & THE BIG APPLE BAND – A FIFTH OF BEETHOVEN. Complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content this remaster is a must have for all Disco, Soul and Funk fans out there!

Chaka: 35th Anniversary Edition
•    CHAKA KHAN (born Yvette Marie Stevens) is one of R&B and Soul music’s most enduring female vocalists having enjoyed a career spanning four decades boasting multiple Grammy awards and a succession of hit singles including the smash #1 R&B classics ‘I’m Every Woman,’ and the Prince penned ‘I Feel For You.’

•    After building her career performing with many groups in the late 60’s and early 70’s Khan found wider acclaim and notoriety from 1972 when she joined the pivotal Funk group Rufus as lead singer. After six successful years with Rufus, who achieved six gold or platinum albums, Khan went solo in 1978 releasing CHAKA, the first of many hit albums she recorded for Warner Bros Records.

•    On its release CHAKA had an immediate impact on the charts peaking at #2 R&B and #12 Pop. Khan proved that her dynamic vocal style could hold its own ground outside the successful Rufus set up. The opening track and first single from the album was the aforementioned solid gold R&B classic ‘I’m Every Woman’ which topped the R&B singles charts and peaked at #21 Pop and #30 Disco, having found a home in the discotheques just as comfortably as on the radio. This ground breaking song was written especially for Khan by the prolific partnership of Ashford & Simpson and proved to be the ideal showcase for the versatile singer.

•    The second single ‘Life Is A Dance’ reached a very respectable #40 R&B. Another stand out track is the beautiful ballad ‘Roll Me Through The Rushes’ which commanded heavy rotation on the radio air waves despite never being released as a single and shows yet another side to Khan’s vocal dexterity. ‘Some Love’ however could be argued as the best track on the album with its propulsive funky bass intro, strong dynamic vocal, chanting horns and soaring strings that have been calling clubbers to the dance floor for decades.

•    BBR is very proud to bring you, CHAKA, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and interviews.

•    CHAKA is an essential purchase for all R&B, Soul, Funk, Disco and Pop fans out there!

•    This CD is released 7th April and will not be shipped prior to release.

Track Listing:

1.    I’M EVERY WOMAN
2.    LOVE HAS FALLEN ON ME
3.    ROLL ME THROUGH THE RUSHES

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,
