Caught In The Act Of Being Ourselves / London Moon And Barnyard Remedies - Mark Germino

Caught In The Act Of Being Ourselves / London Moon And Barnyard Remedies
•    North Carolina-born Mark Germino started out as a poet before moving into the Singer-Songwriter genre in the 70s.  After moving to Nashville he received a song-writing contract that resulted in over 50 of his songs being recorded by other artists before he was finally handed a record deal by RCA.

•    Although being signed to RCA Nashville, both of these albums were recorded in England in 1987 and 1986.

•    "Caught In The Act Of Being Ourselves” from 1987 was the album on which Mark’s most famous song ‘Rex Bob Lowenstein’ appeared.  This was a massive air-play hit in the UK and told the story of a DJ who refused to change his playlist on the orders of his radio station bosses.  

•    "London Moon and Barnyard Remedies” preceded "Caught In The Act . . .” in 1986.  

•    On both albums he was backed by British musicians from legendary folk-rock band Fairport Convention.  

•    Production was by Paul Samwell-Smith, the ex-Yardbird who’d worked with Carly Simon and Cat Stevens and was something of a singer-songwriter specialist.

A Fifth Of Beethoven: Expanded Edition
•    WALTER MURPHY was born in 1952 in New York City and by the age of 4 attended music lessons held by renowned theatre and motion picture organist, Rosa Rio. In 1970 he enrolled in the Manhattan School Of Music where he wrote for the institutes Jazz ensemble.

•    In 1972 after a friend introduced Walter to Doc Severinsen, the musical director of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, he presented him with some of his arrangements and Severinsen liked them so much he had The Tonight Show Band play them live. Unfortunately with the relocation of The Tonight Show production to California, that connection was lost and so Murphy spent the next two years writing jingles for advertisements and the popular TV show Big Blue Marble.

•    While writing a disco song for a commercial in 1974 the producer gave him an idea to update classical music and WALTER MURPHY made a demo tape which caught the ear of Private Stock Records owner Larry Uttal who was particularly interested in his rendition of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 In C Minor.

•    Originally released under the name of WALTER MURPHY & THE BIG APPLE BAND the song became a smash hit reaching #1 on the Hot 100 chart after climbing for 19 weeks. Following the singles success A FIFTH OF BEETHOVEN was released on an album of the same name and also included a notable rendition of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight Of The Bumblebee entitled FLIGHT 76 peaking at #44 on the Billboard Hot 100.

•    HOT SHOT RECORDS is proud to present this lovingly re-mastered, fully expanded edition of WALTER MURPHY & THE BIG APPLE BAND – A FIFTH OF BEETHOVEN. Complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content this remaster is a must have for all Disco, Soul and Funk fans out there!

Jungle Fever: Expanded Edition
•    Belgian based Latin-soul group THE CHAKACHAS were formed in the 1950s by a group of Latin Soul studio musicians and included the famous Tito Puente’s wife, Kari Kenton on vocals and maracas.

•    CHAKACHAS were no strangers to hits with Eso es el amor, sung in Spanish, hitting #1 on the Belgian charts in 1958 and they got their first taste of UK pop chart action with Twist Twist reaching #48 in 1962.

•    In 1972 CHAKACHAS released their 6th studio album JUNGLE FEVER on Polydor records with the single of the same name becoming a huge success. JUNGLE FEVER climbed all the way to #8 on the US Hot 100 chart and by March of 1972 became certified Gold in the US after selling over one million copies and went on to peak at #29 in the UK where it caused such a stir within the BBC with the heavy breathing and moaning featured in the song that the BBC pulled it from airplay shortly after release.

•    To this day JUNGLE FEVER continues to bring CHAKACHAS notoriety having featured in the movie Boogie Nights and being sampled by numerous artists such as 2 Live Crew, Beatnuts, Public Enemy and Louie Vega as well as being featured on the smash hit Grand Theft Auto computer game franchise.

•    BBR is incredibly excited to present this fully expanded and lovingly re-mastered edition of CHAKACHAS – JUNGLE FEVER. Complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Latin, Soul, Disco Funk and R&B fans out there!

It Feels So Good: Expanded Edition
•    Originally formed in 1962 in Jersey City, New Jersey, The Manhattans enjoyed some success in the R&B world from 1965-1972 recording for the Carnival and DeLuxe labels.  A move to Columbia Records in 1973 brought greater prominence for the then-quintet when the single "There’s No Me Without You” became a Top 3 R&B and Top 50 pop hit.

•    The ten-track LP became The Manhattans’ second gold album, buoyed by the success of ‘I Kinda Miss You’ (US R&B #7, Pop #46), the title track (US R&B #6, Pop #66) and ‘We Never Danced To A Love Song,’ another Top 10 R&B hit.
