God Bless Tiny Tim (Deluxe Expanded Mono Version) - Tiny Tim

God Bless Tiny Tim (Deluxe Expanded Mono Version)
• BILLBOARD POP #7 ALBUM IN 1968!
• RARE MONO MIX: FIRST TIME ON CD ANYWHERE!
• FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

Born of that brief, inspired moment in time when the freaks almost took over, April 1968’s God Bless Tiny Tim is an otherworldly mission statement from the misunderstood pop culture icon who almost singlehandedly invented "other.” Featuring the Top 20 hit "Tip-Toe Thru’ The Tulips With Me.”

Produced by RICHARD PERRY (Captain Beefheart, Holy Mackerel, Fats Domino, Nilsson), God Bless Tiny Tim features many early 20th-century classics from the great American songbook, and tracks penned by PAUL WILLIAMS ("Fill Your Heart” was his first major album appearance), GORDON ALEXANDER (his "Strawberry Tea” was cut around the time Gordon was recording with CURT BOETTCHER) and more!

The extensive, full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes by Kristian Hoffman.

This DELUXE EXPANDED MONO EDITION features the original mono mix of the album, which has been out of print since 1968. Even then, copies of the mono LP were promotional-only for press and radio, making this mix an entirely new listening experience for fans. Also included are non-LP singles, and previously unavailable instrumental mixes showcasing the artistry of arranger ARTIE BUTLER in a way never before heard. Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

Produced for reissue by Steve Stanley.

Prog Is Not A Four Letter Word
Whoever came up with the over-pretentious, collective term "Progressive Rock" couldn’t have been less forward thinking. Prog rock in its truest form was not a ‘restrictive’ genre - it was a movement that unified ALL genres.

Forget such flamboyant cover stars such as Genesis, Yes and ELP, what of the truly progressive international rock musicians who started their own hybrid-hurricanes outside the rectangular iris of Prog's media storm? What about the unintentionally progressive musicians from the far reaches of the globe who were forced to create their own brand of psychedelic rock in a country shielded from the influence of the western world? And why don’t we spare a thought (and some needle time), for the culturally progressive crusaders carrying the rock-music flag in the face of political adversity risking social ostrasization or even death?

Even though most of the 15 tracks on this compilation were recorded over 30 years ago they still, individually embody a wide range of challenging progressive musical ideas which are as relevant today as they were when the vinyl first came off the press in each of their scattered countries of origin.

"Prog Is Not A Four Letter Word" is the follow-up to ANDY VOTEL (TWISTED NERVE)’s critically acclaimed "Folk Is Not A Four Letter Word" (CDDELAY01), which caused quite a stir earlier this year.

The majority of these tracks have never before been on CD, many appear here for the first time away from their highly sought after, and stupendously rare, original releases.

Friends 2CD
Shalamar’s Friends was one of the biggest and most celebrated classic soul albums of the 1980s. BBR is proud to present the first ever deluxe edition of the album.
Shalamar was formed in 1977 by Dick Griffey, the booking agent for the legendary R&B TV show Soul Train, and British music producer, Simon Soussan. Initially they used faceless session musicians but when their first single, ‘Uptown Medley’ (R&B #10 / Pop #25) found chart success Griffey created a permanent group. After ‘Take That To The Bank’ (US R&B #11 / Pop #79) Shalamar’s classic line-up of Jody Watley, Jeffrey Daniel and Howard Hewitt continued to have chart success on both sides of the Atlantic with infectious pop-soul cuts like ‘The Second Time Around’ (US R&B #1 / Pop #8) and ‘Make That Move’ (US R&B #6 / Pop #60) all released on Griffey’s Solar imprint.
In 1982 the group released their seventh studio album FRIENDS, which enhanced on the soul groove sound that had brought the group previous success. The opening track and lead US single from the album ‘A Night To Remember’ (US R&B #8 / Pop #44) became an instant R&B classic. The second single in the US was the album closer ‘I Can Make You Feel Good’ (US R&B #33 / Pop #102), another classic mid-tempo R&B dancer that does exactly as it suggests.
FRIENDS enjoyed massive popularity and unprecedented chart success in the UK, becoming one of the biggest selling alums of the year. FRIENDS peaked at #6 on the UK album chart during an incredible 72-week run. The four singles for the UK market, ‘I Can Make You Feel Good’, ‘A Night To Remember’, ‘There It Is’ and ‘Friends’ reached #7, #5, #5 and #12 respectively on the UK singles chart helping Shalamar retain huge popularity to this day. Jeffrey Daniel introduced body popping and the back slide (later renamed the moon walk by Daniel’s student, Michael Jackson) to UK TV audiences on Top Of The Pops in July of 1982 when promoting ‘A Night to Remember’.
BBR is very proud to bring you FRIENDS, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content including a new interview with Jody Watley and a second disc of alternative versions from the US and UK single releases. FRIENDS is a must have for all R&B, SOUL, 80s POP and DISCO fans out there!
