• Marc Brierley
was a talented folk artist who made his name as a singer-songwriter during the second half of the Sixties.
• After making an EP in 1966 for Transatlantic, Marc signed with CBS for two albums, Welcome To The Citadel (1968) and Hello (1969), helped by some of the best musicians on the circuit. Both are now prized collector’s items by fans of the Acid Folk era.
• This welcome reissue of Marc’s debut album Welcome To The Citadel is swelled by a dozen bonus tracks: all five tracks from Marc’s self-titled Transatlantic EP, the stand-alone CBS single from 1969, ‘Stay A Little Longer Merry Ann’/’Flaxen Hair’, and five hitherto unheard home demos.
• Marc Brierley has written new sleeve-notes for this overdue reissue of a cult classic.
• Boasts the original cover art by painter Ron Henderson, who was also responsible for the psychedelic liquid light shows for Pink Floyd and others at the UFO club.
N.B. This album is released August 25 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.
NB: This title is released July 28 and will not be dispatched before this date.
