Nice ‘N’ Naasty - Salsoul Orchestra (The)

Nice ‘N’ Naasty
THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA was the brainchild of once MFSB member and legendary vibraphonist, Vince Montana Jr.
Formed in 1974 THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA, house band for the remarkable Salsoul Records, sometimes featured up to 50 members amongst its ranks including a number of former musicians from MFSB of the Gamble & Huff fronted Philadelphia International Records and fused elements of Funk, Latin, Disco and Philly Soul into their compositions.
Conducted by Montana, THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA began an eight-year recording period in 1975 releasing eleven sensational albums during that time featuring production input from Tom Moulton, Stan Lucas, Patrick Adams and Bunny Sigler through the years.
BBR is proud to bring you the second instalment of our Salsoul Orchestra reissues – The Salsoul Orchestra - Nice & Naasty. Recorded at the famous Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia with production and much of writing being tended to by Vince Montana Jr., Nice & Naasty also features some great musicianship from greats like Bobby Eli, Ron Kersey, Norman Harris and Ron Baker.
Standout tracks include the title single, which achieved a highly impressive #61 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and Ritzy Mambo, which also achieved a spot on the highly coveted singles chart. The album itself accomplished a solid #30 position on the US Pop Album chart.
This newly remastered, fully expanded edition comes packaged complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have for all Funk, Soul, Disco, R&B and Philly Soul fans out there!

Liner notes include a detailed interview about the sessions with Bobby Eli. Features four bonus tracks including a live version of If You Don't Know Me By Now.

Press:-

"The group's first, breakthrough set for Philly International, released in 1972, featuring and making a star of Teddy Pendergrass. It's the set that gave the world If You Don't Know Me By Now, of course: one of the most instantly recognisable intros of all time backed up by one of Teddy's signature vocals. It was pure deep soul as a pop hit - now that hasn't happened too often". 5*

The Magic Garden

· Wow! Here at Rev-Ola we’re proud to present this true undisputed classic of orchestrated, psych-tinged soft pop.

· The 5th Dimension are one of the most successful American bands of the late ‘60s. Hey, everybody knows their hit versions of ‘Up, Up And Away’ and ‘Aquarius’!

· However, in 1968 they were teamed up with producer Bones Howe and wunderkind composer/arranger/all-round bona fide musical genius beyond redoubt, Jimmy Webb, who presented them with a complex song cycle based on his own tumultuous relationship with his partner. Nestling between such dyed-in-the-wool classics as ‘Carpet Man’, ‘The Girls’ Song’, ‘The Worst That Could Happen’ (which all became hit singles for other artists) and the life-affirming title track (as covered by Dusty Springfield no less) are such lesser-spotted Webb gems as ‘Summer’s Daughter’ and ‘Paper Cup’. The whole cycle is linked with beautifully ornate pieces of orchestration, sitar flourishes and ethereal vocals.

· The contractual obligation inclusion of an earlier recording of The Beatles’ ‘Ticket To Ride’ was originally shoehorned into the middle of the running order but we’ve taken the liberty of shuffling it to the end so it no longer interrupts the flow of the cycle.

· One hears accolades like "great albums of the ‘60s” bandied around willy-nilly these days but on this occasion we can state it with confidence.

· Digitally re-mastered by the lovely Norman Blake and with liner notes by the gorgeous Duglas T Stewart!
