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.

Get Up And Boogie: Expanded Edition
•    SILVER CONVENTION started life in Munich in 1974 as Silver Bird Convention when German song writing and producing partners Michael Kunzte and Sylvester Levay released the single ‘Save Me’ on Jupiter Records, enlisting three session singers to take care of the minimal vocal refrain on the track. With the "Bird” soon dropped from the acts name ‘Save Me’ became an international Disco hit heralding the start of continued success throughout the 70's.

•    GET UP AND BOOGIE was the group’s second album released in 1976 and capitalized on the success of their debut, which is also available on BBR. Simply titled "Silver Convention” for the US market, GET UP AND BOOGIE confirmed the group’s reputation for very catchy, accessible dance floor music that was at the forefront of the Euro-disco movement.

•    The first single and opening title track ‘Get Up And Boogie,’ well known as the groups most famous track, took them back to the top end of the charts, as well as being a big hit in the clubs, due to its easy disco style and simple lyrical refrain. Reaching #5 on both the US R&B and Disco charts, as well as #2 and #7 in the US and UK Pop charts respectively it was one of the biggest global disco tracks of the year and still endures to this day. Second single ‘No, No, Joe,’  a funky mid-tempo track with trademark strings also charted at #34 R&B and #14 Disco in the US.

•    Other standout tracks are the classy ‘San Francisco Hustle,’ the down tempo reggae influenced ‘The Boy With The Ooh-La-La,’ the funky, string drenched, slow jam ‘You Turned Me On (But You Can't Turn Me Off)’ and closing ballad ‘Thank You, Mr. D.J.’

•    BBR is very proud to present GET UP AND BOOGIE, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. Essential listening for all Funk, Disco, Dance and Pop fans.
