Eau De Vie - Delegation

Eau De Vie
Len Coley and Roddy Harris formed DELEGATION in Birmingham, during the mid 70’s later adding Jamaican born Ricky Bailey whose voice was to give them added flair on lead helping them to compete in the competitive UK Soul Market.
The Group worked with one of the UK’s most prolific hit makers of the 70’s and 80’s, Ken Gold, responsible for masterminding The Real Thing as well as writing and producing for artists such as The Nolans, Liquid Gold and Billy Ocean who secured a deal with State Records after which the group released a few UK singles with moderate success.
However, when Oh Honey hit the US charts in 1979 it scored an incredibly impressive top 50 US Pop chart position and smoothly grooved all the way to #6 in the US R&B charts helping the album enter the Billboard Hot 200 and make #8 on the US R&B album chart.
DELEGATION later moved to Ariola Records while changing their lineup with Len Coley being replaced with Bruce Dunbar, a Broadway Musical singer who starred in the musical "Hair" before joining the band, bringing with him his captivating falsetto, so well suited to DELEGATION’s smooth funky sound. Once they had drafted in the arranging talents of keyboard virtuoso, Lynton Naismith, DELEGATION went to work on 'Eau De Vie' which would go on to become their highest selling album achieving a Gold Record status in 1980.
Notable songs on this album include the groovy first single, PUT A LITTLE LOVE ON ME full of raw Funk bass lines and smooth Lynton Naismith organ paired with dazzling and driving yet subtle guitar licks giving it a slight Calypso groove. This winning formula was continued into the second single YOU AND I, with the guitar coming forward and the group really showcasing their vocal chemistry from the opening. DELEGATION turned up the disco for HEARTACHE No 9 adding a powerful string and horn section to a track that is currently receiving an overdue renaissance on the UK club scene.
BBR is very proud to bring you EAU DU VIE, completely remastered and repackaged complete with liner notes and extended bonus content.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, EAU DU VIE is a must have for all Soul and Funk and Jazz fans out there!

Nona Hendryx

Released on 27/09/10. Nona Hendryx was one third of the pop/soul act LaBelle, and by far and away made the hippest solo records of any of the other members of the group, Patti LaBelle and Sarah Dash.


After LaBelle called it quits in 1976. Hendryx released her self-titled debut record, which was an amazingly strong amalgam of soul and hard rock.

Wearing skin tight pants, black leather and brandishing a Bowie knife on the LP cover she announced her intentions loud and clear but neither record company or radio at that time knew what to do with this African American woman with a huge voice comfortable and capable of singing hard rock as well as soul music.


Nona worked with Talking Heads as back-up singer and fell in with a hip crowd of musicians and her association with David Byrne led to her working with Bill Laswell who helped her put together her second solo album. Entitled NONA it sparked greater interest in Nona s considerable talents and her solo career flourished.
