Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the legendary "Neil’s Heavy Concept Album” by NEIL, alias Nigel Planer.

Neil, the long suffering Hippy character from the hit TV series "The Young Ones” enjoyed a huge hit with a comic cover version of Traffic’s ‘Hole in My Shoe’ and with this "heavy” album. "Neil’s Heavy Concept Album” was a splendid parody that saw him cover songs such as ‘My White Bicycle’, ‘The Gnome’ and ‘Golf Girl’ and featured contributions from such respected musicians as Dave Stewart (from Progressive band Egg, who also produced the album), Barbara Gaskin, Gavin Harrison, Pip Pyle, Jakko Jakszyk and Jimmy Hastings. Comedians Stephen Fry, Roland Rivron and Dawn French also made appearances.

Levitation (3CD expanded limited edition)
Released on the 28/09/09. ATOMHENGE, the home of HAWKWIND's catalogue from 1976 1997, continue their series of definitive reissued editions of these classic albums with the LIMITED 3CD DELUXE EDITION release of LEVITATION.

Recorded in 1980 and featuring GINGER BAKER, the album was a classic work and spawned an equally legendary tour. Although Baker's tenure with Hawkwind was brief, a concert at Lewisham Odeon in December 1980 was recorded by a mobile unit. Now remixed from the original multitrack masters this deluxe edition includes the entire concert (during which Sci-Fi author Michael Moorcock guested). This edition of LEVITATION is limited to 3000 units and will then be reduced to just a single CD release. This is the ultimate release of this classic album.

Get Down: Expanded Edition
•    HUGELY POPULAR DISCO CLASSIC RETURNS TO CD!

•    Gene Chandler (born Eugene Dixon in 1937 in Chicago, Illinois.) is best remembered for the R&B and Pop #1 "Duke Of Earl” on which he sang lead vocal as part of the doo-wop group The Dukays. Chandler is hugely admired by soul fans as one of the leading names from the Chicago scene along with Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield, the latter of which often wrote for and produced the singer.

•    Having enjoyed a string of R&B hits through the 60’s and 70’s on various labels including a cover of James Brown’s "There Was A Time” (R&B #22) and "Groovy Situation” (R&B #8) Chandler moved on to become executive vice president at Chi Sound Records, where he released four disco funk albums between ’78 and ‘81.

•    GET DOWN (R&B #12/Pop #47) was the first of these albums and was released in 1978. This great set of funky disco tracks spawned two R&B hit singles with "Tomorrow I May Not Feel The Same” reaching #51, and the title track "Get Down”, his biggest hit in 13 years, peaking at #3, Pop #53, and going all the way to #11 in the UK.

•    BBR is very proud to present GET DOWN, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks.

Gloria Gaynor: Expanded Edition
•    RARE GLORIA GAYNOR ATLANTIC ALBUM DEBUTS ON CD IN ORIGINAL FORM!

•    Grammy Award winner and Hall of Famer, GLORIA GAYNOR was born on the 7th of September 1949 in Newark, N.J. and sang as a young girl in her school choir, mixed chorus and  her school’s girl glee club. While she knew she one day wanted to have a career in music, GLORIA GAYNOR still went to school with the aim of having something to fall back on and studied beauty and business courses.

•    Gaynor began to taste real success with the release of her cover version of Never Can Say Goodbye and later became iconic with the release of I Will Survive in 1978.

•    In 1982 GLORIA GAYNOR released her 10th studio album, GLORIA GAYNOR on Atlantic Records, now fully remastered and repackaged for the first time on CD by BBR! The album featured three singles which placed Gloria in a more R&B/Street Soul groove than she had previously recorded. ‘Tease Me’ was followed by an update of the Supremes classic ‘Stop In The Name Of Love’ which saw Gaynor backed by Kool & The Gang. The patriotic ‘America’ continued the new sound that would span across the album

•    BBR is so very proud to announce the release of GLORIA GAYNOR. Lovingly remastered, this CD comes complete with extensive liner notes including interviews and added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have item for all Disco, Soul, Funk and R&B fans out there!
