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!

Ladies Night: 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.”

 

· 1979 would see Kool & The Gang release LADIES NIGHT, their 13th studio album. LADIES NIGHT was a departure from the group’s edgier Funk sound that had brought them plenty of success throughout the 1970’s. The decision was made to bring in the Grammy Award winning Brazilian musician Eumir Deodato as producer, which heralded a smoother and more pop focused era for Kool & The Gang and strengthened their grip on both the R&B and Pop charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

 

· LADIES NIGHT, with its combination of pure, straight ahead dance cuts and down tempo soul pop helped Kool & The Gang strike a new chord with the music buying public and quickly hit the top of the U.S. R&B album chart as a result. The album also easily crossed over and peaked at #13 on the Pop chart.

 

· Singles featured on LADIES NIGHT include the title track, which rocketed to #1 on the U.S. R&B chart while gaining top ten spots on both the U.S. and U.K. Pop charts. "Too Hot” followed suit, landing at #3 R&B, #5 U.S. Pop and #23 in the U.K. singles chart. While not as successful as the previous two singles "Hangin’ Out” still gained a very respectable chart position slowing at #36 on the U.S. R&B and #52 on the U.K. chart.

 

· BBR is proud to present LADIES NIGHT. This fully expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes, with new interviews, and added bonus material.

 

· This BBR re-master is a must have for all R&B, Soul, Funk, Disco and Pop fans out there!

Soul Dancing: Deluxe Edition
•    "Soul Dancing", the third album from powerhouse vocalist and perennial pop icon Taylor Dayne, is given a Deluxe Edition double CD reissue on Cherry Pop.

•    Originally released in 1993, the gold-certified "Soul Dancing" found Taylor developing her sound with an all-star cast including Shep Pettibone, Clivillés & Cole, Humberto Gatica, Narada Michael Walden, Diane Warren, Keith Washington and Ric Wake. An irresistible cover of Barry White’s "Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love" became a Top 20 smash on both sides of the Atlantic while "Send Me A Lover" became another of Taylor's signature ballad hits. In remixed form, the subsequent singles "I’ll Wait" (UK #29) and "Say A Prayer" ignited dance floors internationally and helped to consolidate Taylor's status as one of dance music's defining divas.

•    Digitally remastered direct from the master tapes, this Deluxe Edition also includes extensive bonus material. "Original Sin", a classic collaboration with Jim Steinman from the soundtrack of the 1994 film "The Shadow", features alongside the hit 1995 remixes of Taylor’s debut smash "Tell It To My Heart".

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,
