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.

FLM
Released on 18/10/10. One of the best-remembered acts of the 80s, Cockney sisters Mel & Kim Appleby instantly conquered dance floors, charts and hearts around the world with their style, personality and a string of perfect pop anthems. Their classic album "F.L.M." is now given a much anticipated Deluxe Edition 2CD reissue on Cherry Pop.

Produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, the album reached #3 on its original release in April 1987, going platinum in the UK and topping the charts internationally with sales in excess of three million copies. "F.L.M." features three UK Top Ten hits Showing Out (Get Fresh At The Weekend), the classic #1 Respectable and the title track. Digitally re-mastered and compiled from original master tapes archived at Abbey Road and Pete Waterman's PWL Studios, this release features no less than nineteen exclusive bonus tracks across two discs, including the 1988 Top Ten hit, That's The Way It Is and its self-penned B-side, You Changed My Life. Both tracks are included alongside the "F.L.M." album for the first time ever.

Kim Appleby has generously contributed an exclusive commentary to this release. The extensive booklet also features a reversible cover, an illustrated discography, additional photos and brand new sleeve notes from PWL consultant Tom Parker. Mel & Kim s debut single, Showing Out, hit #3 in November 1986, and in February 1987 Respectable became the first Stock Aitken Waterman composition to top the charts. Combining a streetwise pop sensibility with transatlantic house grooves, Mel & Kim became a global sensation. But at the height of their fame, Mel was diagnosed with cancer. Facing relentless media attention with dignity and characteristic humour while she underwent treatment, the duo released a brand new single in February 1988 That's The Way It Is.

Tragically, Mel's health deteriorated and she passed away in January 1990, aged just 23. "F.L.M." is the latest Hit Factory classic to be reissued on Cherry Pop, following a host of popular releases from Big Fun, Boy Krazy, Hazell Dean, Lonnie Gordon, Haywoode, the London Boys, Princess, Sinitta, Mandy Smith and Sonia.

Always
Produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, Ian Levine, Trevor Vallis, Pete Hammond and Pete Ware, "Always" features a host of classic SAW singles – ‘Who’s Leaving Who?’ (#4), a cover of Anne Murray’s 1986 single, ‘Maybe (We Should Call It A Day)’ (#15), ‘Turn It Into Love’ (#21), originally an album track and subsequently a Japanese #1 for Kylie Minogue, plus the dancefloor favourites ‘They Say It’s Gonna Rain’ and ‘Always Doesn’t Mean Forever’.

Digitally re-mastered direct from master tapes held at the PWL, Abbey Road and Capitol Records archives, this Deluxe Edition brings together the original nine-track album with no less than 20 bonus tracks across two CDs. Added to the album and available on CD for the very first time are two sought-after 1986 singles: ‘Stand Up’, a Stock Aitken Waterman reworking of Umberto Tozzi’s ‘Hurrah’, and ‘E.S.P. (Extra Sensual Persuasion)’, a cover of Millie Jackson’s 1983 single. Bonus tracks also include rare B-sides, the 1987 U.S. 7" remix of the 1985 hit ‘No Fool (For Love)’, the original Dutch-only single version of ‘Walk In My Shoes’ and many mixes previously unreleased in the UK or only available on vinyl.

The extensive booklet also features additional photos, a fully illustrated discography and recording data, full lyrics and an exclusive track-by-track commentary written for this release by Hazell herself.

The definitive doyenne of the Hi-NRG scene, Essex-born Hazell Dean found mainstream success in 1984 with the #6 hit ‘Searchin’ (Gotta Find A Man)’ on the Proto label. The Stock Aitken Waterman-produced follow-up, ‘Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go)’, reached #4, giving the Hit Factory team their first Top Ten single and marking the beginning of a partnership with Hazell which continued until 1991. After the release of her 1985 album "Heart First", Hazell signed with EMI and a succession of releases over the next three years culminated with "Always", widely regarded as her best work. In the years since, Hazell has continued to write, produce and record, recently revisiting ‘They Say It’s Gonna Rain’ on Energise Records, as well as maintaining her profile as an evergreen club performer.

This Deluxe Edition of "Always" follows the popular reissue of Hazell’s "Heart First" and many other PWL-related titles on Cherry Pop, including Mel & Kim, Sinitta, Haywoode, Sonia, Big Fun, Brother Beyond, Pepsi & Shirlie and O’chi Brown.

Think it Over (Expanded Edition)
Cissy Houston (born Emily Drinkard) has had a long and varied career as a background vocalist, session singer and solo artist but is probably best known for being the mother of the massively successful R&B star Whitney Houston, and the aunt of both Dionne and Dee Dee Warwick. Houston began her career with the family gospel group The Drinkards before joining forces with The Group in the early 60’s. The Group, which included some time members Doris Troy and Dee Dee Warwick, sang background vocals on a number of soul, pop and rock releases, many of which were on Atlantic Records. Atlantics Jerry Wexler signed the group in their own right where they recorded some great gospel-soul in the late 60’s under the name The Sweet Inspirations.

During her time with The Sweet Inspirations Houston sang back-up vocals for Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Lou Rawls, The Drifters, Dusty Springfield, Van Morrison (Brown Eyed Girl), The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Elvis Presley (the ’69 Vegas comeback) and her niece Dionne Warwick. Having gone solo in 1969 Houston recorded the original version of "Midnight Train To Georgia” (later a #1 single for Gladys Knight and The Pips) on her only album for Janus Records.

In 1978 Houston released THINK IT OVER, her second LP on Private Stock Records under the guidance of arranger/producer Michael Zager. This album introduced Houston to the Disco world with the title track and lead single "Think It Over” 
reaching a respectable #32 on the Billboard R&B charts and #5 on the Disco charts. "Think It Over” is bona-fide dance floor dynamite with its solid beat and shuffling percussive elements that propel the track forward, the beautiful marriage of piano and strings augmented with arresting, uplifting horn refrains, married to Houston’s incredible, gospel infused, soulful and impassioned vocal. The second single "Warning – Danger” is in much the same vain, again the piano, string and horn interplay is oh so satisfying. Other strong tracks are the groover "Somebody Should Have Told Me,” and the bold ballad "After You” which showcases Houston’s vocal dexterity.

BBR is very proud to present CISSY HOUSTON, expertly re-mastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. CISSY HOUSTON is absolutely essential listening for all Soul, Disco and Pop fans out there!
