Songs Of Love - Anita Ward

Songs Of Love
Anita Ward hails from that hotbed of Southern Soul music Memphis, TN, and unsurprisingly started her association with music from an early age. Having honed her strong soprano voice singing Gospel in Memphis, Anita recorded with the Rust College A Capella Choir before going on to record with her own Gospel quartet. Anita then concentrated on a career as a teacher but her vocal talents could not be denied so before long her manager had turned her on to song-writer/producer Frederick Knight (who himself had a substantial R&B crossover hit in 1972 with ‘I’ve Been Lonely For So Long’ on the Stax imprint) and Knight was so impressed with Anita’s talents that the initial session progressed into a full albums worth of material.
The result of those sessions produced Anita’s debut LP SONGS OF LOVE (R&B #2 /Pop #8) and a deal with the legendary label T.K. Records was struck. The majority of the tracks on the album are mid-tempo grooves and stunning ballads which Anita owns with her warm soprano voice. Anita’s performance on this record strongly compliments the very assured song-writing and production from Knight with the stand out tracks being ‘Spoiled By Your Love’ and ‘There’s No Doubt About It’.
Despite having a very strong set of songs it was decided that the album was missing a final track so Knight re-worked a song he had written for a previous project and presented it to Anita. She was initially sceptical about the track but the song was recorded with Knight being one of the first to use synth-drums at that time. That track was the now legendary ‘Ring My Bell’, which became the albums only US single. ‘Ring My Bell’ was an instant hit and up-tempo disco classic which eclipsed the success of Donna Summer’s ‘Hot Stuff’ and Sister Sledges ‘We Are Family’ in the summer of 1979 by reaching the pinnacle across all of the main Billboard singles charts, securing an R&B, Pop and Disco #1 and selling over a million copies in the process, propelling Songs Of Love into the Billboard top ten. The song also topped charts internationally reaching #1 in New Zealand, Norway and the UK.

Love In ‘C’ Minor
As a producer of Disco music, the influence of JEAN-MARC CERRONE is second perhaps only to that of GIORGIO MORODER. Beginning as a drummer in the late 1960s, CERRONE would go on to sell over 30 million albums in a decades-spanning, internationally-successful career.

LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR’s title track, composed in collaboration with Eurodisco legend ALEC R. CONSTANDINOS, was a nearly-17 minute long opus which expanded the boundaries of Disco music. LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR reached the Top 30 of the US Soul singles chart and was internationally successful as a Pop record, reaching both the US and UK Top 40. The album also charted on both the US Pop and R&B charts and LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR and MIDNITE LADY made #2 on the Billboard Disco chart. LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR broke new ground in dance music and its echoes would be heard in the production sounds of many European and American Disco records over the next five years.

BBR is very proud to present LOVE IN ‘C’ MINOR in full and expanded form, complete with extensive liner notes that feature interviews. Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR remaster is a must have for all Disco, Dance and Pop fans out there!
