Disco Kicks: The Complete Moby Dick Recordings - Boys Town Gang

Disco Kicks: The Complete Moby Dick Recordings
•    Arriving at the tail end of the disco era The Boys Town Gang, somewhat belatedly summed up everything daring and subversive that the golden age of dance had been known for.  The brainchild of San Franciscan DJ/producer Bill Motley, the Boys Town Gang were a hastily assembled fictitious group in the classic industry mould of Shalamar.

•    The group’s first release contained two tracks that instantly became underground club classics. A discofied medley of the two early solo Diana Ross hits ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ and ‘Remember Me’ immediately opened doors for the group when it appeared on DJ set lists all over the USA in 1981. But the powerhouse track turned out to be on the flipside. ‘Cruisin’ The Streets’ had a new sound that set it apart from any disco record before it. With lead vocals by Cynthia Manley the song was overtly sexual and homoerotic.

•    When ‘Cruisin’ The Streets’ became a massive international club hit a permanent group was formed featuring vocalist Jackson Moore replacing Manley. The newly formed trio’s biggest hit was their discofied cover of the Andy Williams hit ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’ which landed them a top ten UK hit in 1982. Further disco and Hi-NRG covers of soul classics such as ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours’ and ‘When Will I See You Again’ gave the group several club hits with guest vocals by the likes of Marlena Shaw, Debbie Jacobs, The Weather Girls and Sylvester.

•    HOT SHOT RECORDS is very proud to present the first ever complete anthology of THE BOYS TOWN GANG where the original Moby Dick master tapes have been used.

•    Released as a double CD collection in a super jewel case, this anthology is a must for all 80’s Pop, Disco and Hi-NRG fans.

N.B. This album is released August 4 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Don't Suppose: 2 Disc Collector's Edition
•    For a short time, Limahl was a massive global superstar and he remains one of the defining faces of the 1980s. Unbelievably this is the first fully expanded UK 2-CD edition of his first solo album ‘Don’t Suppose’ from 1984 and celebrates the 30th anniversary of its release. This edition contains all known official mixes of his celebrated worldwide smash hit ‘Never Ending Story’ written by the legendary Giorgio Moroder.

•    This definitive package also contains extended mixes of the other singles from the album ‘Only For Love’, ‘Too Much Trouble’ and ‘Tar Beach’ as well as all the B-sides, more archive rarities and three previously unreleased demos from Limahl himself! One unmissable highlight is the French language version of ‘Never Ending Story’ called ‘L’Histoire Sans Fin’.

•    Incredibly, ‘Don’t Suppose’ was the launch pad for the now celebrated record producer Tim Palmer who went on to work with such stellar talents as Pearl Jam, Robert Plant, David Bowie’s ‘Tin Machine’, Tears For Fears and The House Of Love. The other production collaborator on Limahl’s debut solo album was De Harris, then from the critically acclaimed new romantic band Fashion.

Cheryl Lynn: Expanded Edition
•    From singing in church in Los Angeles to appearing on the popular ‘70s U.S. TV talent programme, ‘The Gong Show,’ Cheryl Lynn’s vocal delivery, style and skills have been evident and when she hit the international music scene in 1978, it was no surprise that she found favour with audiences the world over.

•    The summer of that year, her co-penned ‘Got To Be Real,’ acknowledged now as a timeless classic that has been used in countless movies, television ad campaigns, sampled and covered, could be heard literally across the globe from London to New York, Paris to Tokyo, giving the soulful singer an anthem that has continued to bring dancers to their feet everywhere.  The single reached No. 1 on the U.S. R&B charts and No. 23 on the Hot 100.

•    Cheryl’s self-titled debut album also included another dance anthem, ‘Star Love’ as well as a cover of ‘Come In From The Rain’ (a 1977 hit for Captain & Tennille) and four more songs that Cheryl wrote or co-wrote.  The album was certified gold, reaching No. 5 on the U.S. R&B and No. 23 on Top 200 Albums’ charts.

•    Originally reissued in the US in 2010, the CD has been generally unavailable for the last few years;  this new remastered version on SoulMusic Records includes two tracks not originally included – the much-loved 12” single mix and 7” single edits of ‘Star Love’ along with the single version of ‘Got To Be Real’ and 12” single of ‘You Saved My Day.’  Edited from the original essay by renowned U.S. writer A. Scott Galloway, the notes include quotes from Cheryl, co-producer David Paich (of Toto fame) and famed drummer James Gadson.

Pressure Cookin'
    Originally the quartet Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles (Sarah Dash, Nona Hendryx and Cindy Birdsong – before Birdsong’s departure made it a trio), the transformation from bouffant wigs and the reworking on standards such as ‘Over The Rainbow’ and ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ to a futuristic, space-age-clad trio of high-powered vocalists finally took hold with the 1973 release of Labelle’s sole album for RCA Records, PRESSURE COOKIN.’

•    The transition from ‘60s girl group to ‘70s funk’n’soul sisters had been masterminded by former British TV producer Vicki Wickham who oversaw the production of the production of Labelle’s recordings for Track Records and two albums for Warner Brothers (a self-titled 1971 set and 1972’s "Moonshadow”).  PRESSURE COOKIN’ boasted seven compositions by Hendryx including the now-classic ‘(Can I Speak To You Before You Go To) Hollywood?’ which became a staple of the trio’s dynamic live performances.

•    Stevie Wonder penned the album’s lone single, ‘Open Up Your Heart’ as well as co-producing the track and ‘Going On A Holiday’ (although uncredited for contractual reasons on both cuts).  PRESSURE COOKIN’ also included an inspiring medley of Thunderclap Newman’s ‘Something In The Air’ and Gil Scott-Heron’s timeless ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.’

•    Originally reissued in the US in 2010, the CD has been generally unavailable for the last few years and includes notes by renowned US writer A. Scott Galloway, edited from the original 2010 essay with quotes from Vicki Wickham, Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash.

N.B. This album is released August 18 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Track List:


1.    PRESSURE COOKIN'
2.    MEDLEY: SOMETHING IN THE AIR / THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED
3.    SUNSHINE (WOKE ME UP THIS MORNING
4.    (CAN I SPEAK TO YOU BEFORE YOU GO TO) HOLLYWOOD
5.    MR. MUSIC MAN
6.    GOIN' ON A HOLIDAY
7.    LET ME SEE YOU IN THE LIGHT
8.    OPEN UP YOUR HEART
9.    LAST DANCE

Switch: Expanded Edition
•    SWITCH are a Soul outfit originally based in Ohio who went on to have several hit R&B singles and albums from the late 1970's to the mid 1980's after signing with Motown subsidiary label Gordy in late 1977. Their first incarnation was as White Heat and they performed as backing band for Barry White before renaming themselves Hot-Ice. In 1978 the newly named Switch (due to the ease in which they could change vocalist or instruments on stage) released their debut album under that moniker.

•    SWITCH is a superb and exciting collection of mid and up-tempo grooves. Founding members Bobby DeBarge, Gregory Williams and Jody Sims take on the majority of the song writing and production with Jermaine Jackson also contributing his talents.

•    The first single released from SWITCH was the DeBarge penned ‘There'll Never Be,’ a slow burning R&B ballad with intricate harmonies and horn arrangements behind DeBarge's engaging falsetto, which peaked at #6 R&B and #36 Pop in the summer of 1978. Follow up single ‘I Wanna Be Closer’ (R&B #22), written and produced by Jermaine Jackson, is even more laid back, drenched in trademark harmonies with lead vocalists DeBarge and Philip Ingram complimenting each other perfectly. Stand out album tracks on SWITCH are the opener ‘I Wanna Be With You,’ a funky work out which stays tight on the groove, ‘We Like To Party... Come On,’ a full on call to the floor with crisp drums and a propulsive groove, the up-tempo soul shuffle ‘Fever’ and paranoid closer ‘Somebody's Watching You,’ a super fuelled percussion and horn led funk bomb.

•    BBR is very proud to present SWITCH, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. Essential listening for all R&B, Soul, Funk and Disco fans.

N.B. This album is released August 25 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Track List:

1.    I WANNA BE WITH YOU
2.    THERE'LL NEVER BE
3.    I WANNA BE CLOSER
4.    WE LIKE TO PARTY... COME ON
5.    FEVER
6.    YOU PULLED A SWITCH
7.    IT'S SO REAL
8.    SOMEBODY'S WATCHING YOU

BONUS TRACKS
9.    THERE'LL NEVER BE (Single Version)
10.    I WANNA BE CLOSER (Single Version)
Our Price: £10.95
