Take My Time - Sheena Easton

Take My Time
Released 19/10/09. Sheena Easton was born on April 27th 1959 in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire, Scotland and from the age of five wanted to be a pop singer. In 1979 her dream of becoming a pop singer would become a reality when one of Sheena s tutors asked her to audition for Esther Rantzen who, at the time, was the producer of The Big Time. EMI were contacted by the show and agreed to hold an audition for Sheena in London. She performed three songs in front of three EMI executives and Sheena gave the audition her all, belting out You Light Up My Life , I ve Got The Music In Me and Feelings . All three executiveswere suitably impressed and Sheena was signed for one year and moved from her bedsit in Glasgow to London. The next step was to find songs to launch Sheena into the pop arena. To do this EMI recruited the help of Chris Neil a well known record producer whose previous successes included Dollar among many others.

After an image revamp and advice from her idol Dusty Springfield, who thought Sheena was wonderful , Sheena then recorded her first single Modern Girl . EMI sent the recorded track to radio stations around the UK. It was welcomed by many stations, including Radio 1, where the track received very favourable responses from Simon Bates and David Kid Jensen, who both thought the song would be a hit. When The Big Time was first aired on TV Sheena s episode was watched by 20 million viewers where her distinctive vocal and striking good looks won the hearts of the British public. The mass exposure helped Modern Girl and the follow-up single 9 To 5 (Morning Train) become smash hits and both singles catapulted into the top ten simultaneously.

Huge chart success was topped off in February 1981 at the Rock & Pop Awards with an award for Best Female British Female Singer as voted by the British Public. By this time Sheena Easton was an international phenomenon scoring hits all over the world, most notably the US where Morning Train (9 To 5) became an instant smash, hitting the top of the charts for two weeks in early 81. Sheena s debut album Take My Time was released in the UK in January 1981 and remained in the charts for 20 weeks. It was also a big success in the US, where it was retitled Sheena Easton , quickly turning Gold shortly after release. The original album comprised of twelve predominantly pop songs with strong melodies, that cross over with ease to different genres of music, giving the album a diverse feel with mass appeal. Here are those 12 tracks with four bonus tracks which were originally b-sides to four 45s.

B-H-Y
At first glance the letters B-H-Y may not seem like much, but a little scratch at the surface would reveal three names of some of the most forward thinking, innovative and talented musicians of their time and beyond – Ronnie Baker, Norman Harris and Earl Young.
Baker-Harris-Young, these three names are synonymous with Philly Soul and Disco and with good reason for no three people have had more input into shaping and defining disco as Baker, Harris and Young.
Earl Young, a highly talented drummer, was founder and leader of The Trammps along with band mate Ronnie Baker. Young is widely considered the innovator of the Disco style of drumming favouring extensive use of the hi-hat, which led to his recordings being favoured by DJs across the globe and along with Baker and Harris, the trio have become widely recognized as the founders of the disco sound.
As individuals Baker, Harris and Young were involved in every part of the burgeoning Philly Soul scene with each musician performing at Philadelphia International Records playing on numerous Gamble & Huff arrangements. As the formation of The Salsoul Orchestra came to fruition Baker-Harris-Young played an instrumental part in providing the musical direction and helping to sculpt the unique and instantly recognizable Salsoul brand that we all know and love.
BBR brings you the only album to ever feature Baker-Harris-Young as this Disco super-group showcasing the amazing talent of each musician. Featuring such hits as Handle Me With Love And Care, Marathon Dancer and I Just Want To Funk (With You).
Lovingly remastered and fully expanded, complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content this BBR Remaster is a must have for any Soul, Funk, Disco, R&B, Philly Soul and Salsoul fans out there!

A Little Love
BBR delves deeper into the vaults of Salsoul Records to bring you AURRA – A LITTLE LOVE!
AURRA began as a spinoff from the R&B Funk group Slave in 1980 and featured members Curt Jones, Staleana Young, Charles Carter and Budd Hankerson. AURRA recorded three albums for Salsoul during the 80s and tasted chart success with their first offering, Send Your Love when "Are You Single” reached #16 on the R&B charts.
A LITTLE LOVE features Stephen "The Fearless Leader” Washington, a talented multi-instrumentalist and member of Slave, who would co-write and play on the entire album while tending to production duties with the assistance of Tom Lockett, helping AURRA reach their biggest success of the 80s when ‘Make Up Your Mind’ climbed all the way to #6 on the R&B Singles chart while simultaneously achieving an impressive #71 on the US Pop charts.
The rapport between Curt Jones and Starleena Young is brilliantly showcased on A LITTLE LOVE on tracks such as the love funk jam ‘Patience’ but it’s the heart-warming ‘It’s You’, a sweet duet about a couples first meeting and falling in love with one another which really gives us an insight into the Jones and Young dynamic.
BBR is very proud to present this fully expanded and lovingly remastered edition of AURRA – A LITTLE LOVE.
Complete with extensive liner notes with interviews and added bonus content, this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Soul, Funk, R&B and Disco fans out there!

Spark Of Love (Expanded Edition)
Following the success of CHOOSING YOU (reissue on SoulMusic Records in 2014, SMCR-5116), his debut album for ABC Records, Lenny Williams really hit his stride as one of the premier black male vocalists of the ‘70s with the 1978 release of SPARK OF LOVE which became his best-selling and a gold album for the Arkansas-born, California-raised singer/songwriter.  
 
Lenny first came to the attention of the U.S. record-buying public as the lead singer for funk/soul band Tower Of Power from 1972-1975 on now-classic hits such as ‘What Is Hip?’ and ‘So Very Hard To Go.’ Prior to that, he recorded singles for Fantasy Records and Atlantic. Other solo projects included a one-off solo LP with Warner and one album for Motown ("Rise Sleeping Beauty”).  

As he recounted in liner notes for this reissue of SPARK OF LOVE (an expanded edition with three single edits) by renowned US writer, Rashod Ollison, one of the songs on the Motown LP was ‘’Cause I Love You’ which Lenny had been performing live to great audience response.  When it came to recording his sophomore ABC project, Lenny and producer Frank Wilson (known for his work with  Eddie Kendricks, The Four Tops and others) decided to re-record the song as a ballad. Subsequently, the song has become Lenny’s timeless signature tune, featured in numerous soundtracks and sampled by major rap and hip-hop artists, although never issued as a single.

This 2014 SoulMusic Records reissue also includes US R&B hit singles, ‘You Got Me Running’ and ‘Midnight Girl.’
