The Complete Constant Companion Sessions - Ruthann Friedman

The Complete Constant Companion Sessions
•    THE COMPLETE 1970 SESSIONS!
•    FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
•    11 PREVIOUSLY-UNRELEASED TRACKS!

When The Association’s ‘Windy,’ reached the #1 position in July 1967, writer Ruthann Friedman didn’t just score a hit single, she also achieved a milestone: Ruthann was only the third female songwriter to compose an American #1 record without the help of a co-writer. In 1999, BMI designated the infectious smash the 61st most played song of the 20th century. But the story doesn’t end there.

Produced in 1969 by JOE WISSERT (The Turtles, Lovin’ Spoonful, Jackie DeShannon) Constant Companion is Ruthann’s only LP during the first chapter of her career. An intimate folk album replete with lysergic lyrical imagery, Constant Companion will intrigue fans of Joni Mitchell and Judee Sill.  

Also included is a full album’s worth of previously-unreleased material cut during the Constant Companion era, which will undoubtedly leave the listener wondering why these tracks were hidden away all these years.

Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

The full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of Ruthann herself!

Produced for reissue by Steve Stanley.

This product is released June 30 2014 and will not be dispatched before this date.

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.
 
•    In 1975, the group topped the US pop and R&B charts (also reaching the UK Top 10) with their now-classic "Kiss And Say Goodbye,” from their first gold album, The Manhattans.

•    With the departure of original member Ricky Taylor, the quartet of Gerald Alston, Blue Lovett, Sonny Bivins and Wally Kelley returned to the recording studios in 1976 with renowned Philadelphia producer/arranger/musician and songwriter Bobby Martin to cut their fourth Columbia album, IT FEELS SO GOOD.

•    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.

•    This 2014 expanded edition marks the first CD reissue of the LP worldwide and includes three single edits alongside the non-album ‘B’ side, ‘Gypsy Man’ and liner notes by US  writer Matt Bauer with quotes from album co-producer/Columbia executive Mickey Eichner and group members Gerald Alston, Sonny Bivins and Blue Lovett.

Tasty: Expanded Edition
•    With a career spanning five decades and numerous appearances in the charts and the music award circuit, Grammy Hall Of Fame inductee, Patti LaBelle sealed her fate as one of the great American Divas. Patti LaBelle started singing at church and later formed a singing group called Patti Labelle and the Bluebelles, later know as LaBelle. Patti and her group enjoyed many chart hits during their 15 years together including their number one, Allen Toussaint-produced gold selling single, Lady Marmalade. In 1977 Patti went solo and released her first solo album, Patti LaBelle, on Epic Records. Tasty, It’s Alright With Me and Released followed.

•    TASTY was produced by veteran hit maker David Rubinson and enjoyed an 8-week run of chart success in 1978, reaching #39 on the US R&B charts. The album’s singles, ‘Teach Me Tonight (Me Gusta Tu Baile),’ which features a young Sheila E. on percussion, and ‘Little Girls’ were both hit singles on the Billboard Soul chart whilst ‘Eyes In The Back Of My Head’ and ‘Save The Last Dance For Me’ were issued in Disco remix form and gathered a club audience. Both ‘Quiet Time’ and ‘Little Girls’ are constantly in Patti’s live tours even today.

•    After too many years out of print, BBR is proud to present this wonderfully repackaged and newly remastered expanded edition of Patti LaBelle’s TASTY complete with extensive liner notes with interviews and added bonus content. It’s a must for all soul, funk and disco fans.

If You Want Me: Expanded Edition
•    CD DEBUT OF CLASSIC SOUL ALBUM FROM ARETHA’S SISTER!

•    CAROLYN ANN FRANKLIN spent her singing and song writing career somewhat in the shadow of her hugely successful sister, The First Lady Of Soul, Aretha, having followed both her older siblings Aretha and Erma from the church into a secular recording career in the mid to late sixties. Although, Like Erma, Carolyn had modest success compared to Aretha she recorded with her sister many times and proved herself as an excellent songwriter penning hits for Aretha such as ‘Ain't No Way,’ ‘Save Me’ and the stunning ‘Angel.’ From 1969-1973 Franklin released three albums in produced by Jimmy Radcliffe which provided the R&B hits ‘All I Want To Be Is Your Woman’ and ‘It's True I'm Gonna Miss You,’ proving Carolyn was an exceptional vocalist in her own right.

•    IF YOU WANT ME was Franklin's fourth and last studio album released in 1976 on RCA. Carolyn displays incredibly subtlety and control on this excellent album on which also she provides many of the song writing credits. ‘From The Bottom Of My Heart (To The Bottom Of Yours)’ sets the smooth, honeyed tone for the rest of this under-appreciated album. The beautifully sung and arranged ballad ‘I Can't Help My Feeling So Blue’ should have dented the R&B chart but went under the radar. Title track ‘If You Want Me’ and ‘You Can Have My Soul’ are superb examples of 'loose but tight' 70's soul with progressive rhythms and plenty of feeling. Closer ‘Deal With It,’ a classic slice of funky soul, adds a little kick at the end and tips it's hat to sister Aretha's ‘Rock Steady’ with its chopping rhythms and ‘There It Is’ refrain.

•    BBR is proud to present Carolyn Franklin's IF YOU WANT ME. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus material and is a must have for all R&B, Soul and Funk fans out there!
