The Very Best of Janie / Saddle The Wind - Janie Fricke

The Very Best of Janie / Saddle The Wind
•    Janie Fricke’s vocal tones enhanced the recordings of many country stars, as one of the most sought-after backing singers in Nashville.  It’s said that producer Billy Sherrill signed her up in her own right in 1977 after a group of country radio DJs pleaded with him to reveal the identity of the distinctive tones they’d heard on so many hits!

•    One of the most popular female country singers; from 1977-1989 Janie had charted 38 singles including 9 No.1s. Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year in 1982 and 1983.  Academy of Country Music Awards Top Female Vocalist in 1983.  

•    "The Very Best Of Janie” released in 1985 includes two Grammy-nominated songs ‘Your Heart’s Not In It’ and ‘She’s Single Again’.  The album contains nine Top 10 singles, five of which reached No. 1 in the country charts.  The bonus track on this album was the previously unreleased duet with Merle Haggard ‘Ridin’ High’.

•    "Saddle The Wind” released in 1988 may not be as hit-packed as its companion but is regarded by her fans as one of her finest albums.

•    Annoyed by mis-pronunciations of her name, she changed the spelling to ‘Frickie’ in 1986 but changed it back to the original spelling a few years later.

New Dimensions
Field gte not in Database

The Three Degrees were hugely successful internationally throughout the seventies, particularly in the UK where they enjoyed ten top forty hits including Year Of Decision, Take Good Care Of Yourself and the anthemic ballad When Will I See You Again, all on Philadelphia International Records. New Dimensions was the trio's first album for Ariola Records where they were teamed with hotter than hot producer Giorgio Moroder, who was riding high on his work with Donna Summer.

The top forty album spent thirteen weeks on the UK album chart in 1979 and spun off three hugely successful megahits in the shape of the discofied Giving Up, Giving In and The Runner as well as the top three ballad Woman In Love.


This newly re-mastered edition features extensive liner notes and seven bonus tracks. Also available: BBR's best-selling reissue of The Three Degrees' Philadelphia International debut.

Some People
Released 20/04/09. Born Neville Keighley, Some released his first LP 'Some People' in 1985 and the title track was a club hit. Although Some's contribution to the Pretty in Pink soundtrack, "Round, Round," did not penetrate the mainstream, it introduced Some to an audience outside of discotheques. Produced by Bernard Edwards, "Round, Round" had enough electric guitars to seduce rock fans while maintaining the interest of the dance crowd with its pounding groove.

‘Imagination', a song from 'Some People', was reissued in 1986, peaking at number 17 on the U.K. pop charts. Both ‘Some People' and ‘Imagination' were remixed several times. In 1987, Some recorded his self-titled second album, but it failed to duplicate the success of his debut. Some then disappeared from the music scene, lost in an '80s "Where Are They Now?" file until 1993 when he released Living Your Life. Contains the top 20 hit ‘Imagination'

In the 80s, working out of a basement studio in the Pete Waterman-owned PWL studio complex (with production partner Ian Curnow), Phil Harding club mixes and productions dominated the dancefloors and club charts on an international scale. On this long-awaited, double-CD package (with 24-bit digital re-mastering) are 25 sought-after classic 80s remixes and rarities...

Refreshingly and affectionately frank, ‘PWL - From The Factory Floor’ tells the inside story of one of the most successful and fast-paced music studios of all time. Phil’s pivotal role provides a uniquely broad perspective, extending from the top of the organisation, mixing many classic SAW hits, down to the bottom , training up-and-coming engineers, as well as involvement in the creative, business (and diplomatic!) aspects of being a critically-acclaimed producer in his own right and developing a profile and client base under the management of Pete Waterman. After a sold-out limited release in 2009, the book has undergone extensive development into this Expanded Edition, and contains a wealth of new material...

Get both for only £23.99 for a limited time only!

PRESS:-

"Orchestrated by one of the music industry’s most revered remixers and producers, Phil Harding, ‘Club Mixes of the ‘80s’ showcases his 30+ career spanning years at the musical wheel.”  

(Annecarlini.com)

"Sound engineer Phil Harding, a former member of the PWL team, takes us inside of the PWL studios, where no-name artists like Rick Astley and Klie Minogue were advocated to levels of recognition incomprehensible to the artist struggling to pay their dues in hopes of reaching similar fame and success.”

Bonnie Pointer : Expanded Edition
Released on 23rd of January. The founding member of THE POINTER SISTERS, BONNIE POINTER began her performing career in San Francisco nightclubs in 1969. Soon joined by youngest sister June then by elder sisters Ruth and Anita, The Pointer Sisters released a string of hits on Blue Thumb, trailblazing from genre to genre, including funk and jazz, and won their first Grammy award for the country song FAIRYTALE, written by Anita and Bonnie, which would be recorded by ELVIS PRESLEY two years before his death.

In 1976, Bonnie Pointer left the group and soon after signed with Motown. Produced by (her later husband) Jeffrey Bowen, her first Motown album was a critical and commercial success. First single FREE MY FROM MY FREEDOM reached the R&B top 10 in 1978 and was distinctive for being a disco-era funk record with a surprising banjo solo. The album also featured the classic Motown covers WHEN I’M GONE (Brenda Holloway) and HEAVEN MUST HAVE SENT YOU (The Elgins). The latter was soon rerecorded in a Disco style, becoming a top 20 Pop and top 10 Disco hit and a dance classic. Both versions are included in this reissue

Chaka: 35th Anniversary Edition
•    CHAKA KHAN (born Yvette Marie Stevens) is one of R&B and Soul music’s most enduring female vocalists having enjoyed a career spanning four decades boasting multiple Grammy awards and a succession of hit singles including the smash #1 R&B classics ‘I’m Every Woman,’ and the Prince penned ‘I Feel For You.’

•    After building her career performing with many groups in the late 60’s and early 70’s Khan found wider acclaim and notoriety from 1972 when she joined the pivotal Funk group Rufus as lead singer. After six successful years with Rufus, who achieved six gold or platinum albums, Khan went solo in 1978 releasing CHAKA, the first of many hit albums she recorded for Warner Bros Records.

•    On its release CHAKA had an immediate impact on the charts peaking at #2 R&B and #12 Pop. Khan proved that her dynamic vocal style could hold its own ground outside the successful Rufus set up. The opening track and first single from the album was the aforementioned solid gold R&B classic ‘I’m Every Woman’ which topped the R&B singles charts and peaked at #21 Pop and #30 Disco, having found a home in the discotheques just as comfortably as on the radio. This ground breaking song was written especially for Khan by the prolific partnership of Ashford & Simpson and proved to be the ideal showcase for the versatile singer.

•    The second single ‘Life Is A Dance’ reached a very respectable #40 R&B. Another stand out track is the beautiful ballad ‘Roll Me Through The Rushes’ which commanded heavy rotation on the radio air waves despite never being released as a single and shows yet another side to Khan’s vocal dexterity. ‘Some Love’ however could be argued as the best track on the album with its propulsive funky bass intro, strong dynamic vocal, chanting horns and soaring strings that have been calling clubbers to the dance floor for decades.

•    BBR is very proud to bring you, CHAKA, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and interviews.

•    CHAKA is an essential purchase for all R&B, Soul, Funk, Disco and Pop fans out there!

•    This CD is released 7th April and will not be shipped prior to release.

1.    I’M EVERY WOMAN
2.    LOVE HAS FALLEN ON ME
