Ain't Nothing But A Party (The 12" Anthology) - Phil Fearon & Galaxy

Ain't Nothing But A Party (The 12" Anthology)

PLEASE NOTE THIS CD IS NOT RELEASED UNTIL THE 25TH NOVEMBER - THIS IS A PRE-ORDER & THE CD WILL NOT BE SENT OUT UNTIL THE OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE

"Ain’t Nothing But A Party" is the first-ever comprehensive compilation of 12" singles from 80s chart mainstays, post-disco synth soul pioneers and perennial floor fillers Phil Fearon and Galaxy.

Compiled with Phil’s blessing, this collection brings together the definitive extended versions of all his UK single releases issued on the Ensign label from 1982 to 1987. No less than five Top Twenty hits – ‘Dancing Tight’, ‘Wait Until Tonight (My Love)’, ‘What Do I Do?’, ‘Everybody’s Laughing’ and ‘I Can Prove It’ – feature alongside Phil’s cover of the Showstoppers’ ‘Ain’t Nothing But A House Party’ – an early UK House classic produced by Stock Aitken Waterman.

Digitally remastered direct from master tapes archived at Abbey Road, this collection features many mixes unavailable since their original release and available on CD for the first time. Showcasing the innovative post-disco synth-soul sound of Phil’s FJR Studios, it also boasts mix credits for the influential M & M team of John Morales and the late Sergio Munzibai, John Luongo and PWL’s Phil Harding and Pete Hammond.

The extensive booklet also features additional photos, a fully illustrated discography, lyrics and new sleeve notes written especially for this release.

Galaxy was the brainchild of former Kandidate member Phil Fearon and launched in 1982 with the club favourite ‘Head Over Heels’. Top Five chart success followed with the classics ‘Dancing Tight’ and ‘What Do I Do?’, all generated from Phil’s own home studio. A virtual one-man ‘hit factory’ in his own right, Phil went on to record at PWL with Stock Aitken Waterman before moving into song-writing and production work for other artists, notably Pepsi & Shirlie’s 1987 smash ‘Heartache’. In recent years, he has made a long-overdue return to performing and now makes regular live appearances.

"Ain’t Nothing But A Party" is a perfect party album, essential for all 80s aficionados and the latest in the long line of popular PWL-related reissues on Cherry Pop.

All Over The Place

Released on 20/09/10. All Over the Place was The Bangles' first full length album for Columbia Records. Released in 1984, the sound is lively and shows more Bangles collaboration. Although the album was not a commercial success, it gave them the chance to perform as an opening act for Cyndi Lauper and Huey Lewis And The News and brought the group to the attention of Prince, who would write Manic Monday , their first hit.

Two singles were released from this album, Hero Takes a Fall , which peaked outside the U.K. Top 40, and Going Down to Liverpool , written by Kimberley Rew of Katrina And The Waves, which won the Bangles the BPI Award, the British equivalent of the Grammy. The video for Going Down To Liverpool features Leonard Nimoy, who plays the part of the band's chauffeur.

Despite Straight Lines - Very Best Of
Released 27/11/08. At long last, 23 years after its original release, Marilyn's one and only album "Despite Straight Lines" is finally reissued. This is the first time on CD for this album. The album features Marilyn's four best selling singles including the number 4 smash "Calling Your Name". The album has 8 bonus tracks that include 2 mixes of "Calling Your Name" 12" promo mixes of "Cry And Be Free" (Gospel and Streisand styles) and the extended version of "Baby U Left Me In The Cold".

The CD booklet includes a UK Discography with all the accompanying sleeves and a biography of Marilyn's career. Marilyn emerged from the New Romantic movement in London at the end of the 1970's. As a face on the scene he forged a strong friendship with Boy George. An appearance in a Eurythmics video brought Marilyn extensive press attention and he soon signed a deal with Phonogram. Success was to follow with a string of self and co-written tunes but all too soon problems set in and Marilyn's career was over prematurely. His songwriting and artistic style means he'll always enjoy the status of being an 80's icon

Anagram’s previous releases by the band – "Grapes Of Wrath” (CDMGRAM 200), ”One Eyed Jacks” (CDMGRAM 201) and "World Service” (CDGRAM 202) – have all sold well and we expect strong demand for what is essentially a "Best Of Spear Of Destiny”.

Joy Ride: Expanded Edition
·       The follow up to the best-selling album "Drama V” (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2013, SMCR-5104), the 1976 LP JOY RIDE proved to be even more successful for the Detroit-based Dramatics (originally formed in 1962), spawning a US Top 20 chart hit with ‘Finger Fever’ and two US Top 10 R&B hit singles (‘Be My Girl,’ #3 and ‘I Can’t Get Over You,’ #9) both of which became staple tunes in the group’s live performances.   
·       The quintet (by 1976, consisting of L.J. Reynolds, Willie Ford, Ron Banks, Larry "Squirrell” Demps and Lenny Mayes) had established themselves as hitmakers with  classics such as ‘Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get’ and ‘In The Rain’ for Volt Records. 
·       The three primary producers on JOY RIDE had been key players in the group’s previous success - Don Davis, songwriter Tony Hester and key musician/artist in his own right Michael Henderson.  In addition, two members of the group – Ron Banks and L.J. Reynolds - stepped up with each producing one track while longtime arranger Jimmy Roach wrote and produced another standout cut, ‘I Get Carried Away.’  Henderson’s ‘Be My Girl’ quickly became one of the album’s highlights (with his own version competing with the group’s for US airplay) propelling JOY RIDE into the US Top 20 R&B Albums chart. 
·       This SoulMusic Records’ reissue includes two bonus tracks, single versions of ‘Be My Girl’ and ‘Sundown Is Coming’ along with liner notes by renowned US writer Janine Coveney with 2013 quotes from Michael Henderson.

Love Brought Me Back: Expanded Edition
·       Los Angeles-born D.J. Rogers began his musical journey like  so many of his contemporaries – in the world of gospel:  as a teenaged member of the Los Angeles Community Choir, he was featured on five albums for Savoy Records before recording with the ‘godfather of contemporary gospel,’ the Reverend James Cleveland.  
·       In 1969, D.J. (Dwayne Julius) moved into secular music, recording a now-rare self-titled LP for singer/songwriter Leon Russell’s Shelter label. Signed to RCA Records in 1975, the powerhouse vocalist, songwriter, musician and producer made three critically-acclaimed albums for the label, establishing himself as a US soul music favourite with the now-classic ‘Say You Love Me’ (later recorded by Jennifer Holliday and Natalie Cole) and ‘Bula Jean.’ 
·        When Maurice White (founder of Earth, Wind & Fire) saw D.J. perform at an L.A. event, he signed him to his CBS-distributed Kalimba Productions.  The result was an association that spanned three released albums, the first of which was 1978’s LOVE BROUGHT ME BACK. The uplifting title track became D.J.’s biggest US hit (Top 20 R&B Singles) and the subsequent LP, his best-selling set.  
·       This SoulMusic Records’ expanded edition reissue features five bonus tracks, including the 12” single mix of ‘Love Brought Me Back’ and single edits of ‘All My Love’ (a US Top 100 R&B hit) along with extensive liner notes by renowned US writer A. Scott Galloway with 2013 quotes from D.J. himself, Jerry Peters, James Gadson and Maxayn Lewis.
