Skyscraping: Expanded Edition - ABC

Skyscraping: Expanded Edition

· ABC has its roots in the band Vice Versa, a Sheffield band formed in 1977 by Stephen Singleton and Mark White. They founded their own label, Neutron Records, releasing the EP Music 4. Martin Fry, who wrote the fanzine Modern Drugs, interviewed Vice Versa and shortly afterwards they asked him to join as synthesizer player. Fry accepted and by 1980 the band had evolved into ABC, with Fry becoming lead vocalist.

· The album was released in 1997, as a homage to lead singer Martin Fry's several musical heroes, including David Bowie, Roxy Music and The Sex Pistols.

· The line-up of ABC then consisting of Martin Fry, Glenn Gregory of Heaven 17 and Keith Lowndes, the album was met with positive reviews from critics rather than broad commercial success.

· This re-issue - done in conjunction with the band -contains liner notes by Daryl Easlea who talked extensively to the members of the band about the creation of the record.

· It contains a newly re-mastered album as well as a disc of B-Sides from the singles released at the time.

Walk Under Ladders
Released on 25/01/10. Eighth LP from legendary UK singer songwriter, originally issued in 1981. Second album in her late 70s / early 80s newfound pop direction, produced by the legendary Steve Lillywhite.

Now with three bonus tracks previously only issued on vinyl as part of the Weakness In Me EP.

The seventies produced a string of great albums, mostly tinged with an acoustic, jazzy, even folky flavour, until, in the late 70's and early 80's she found her way into a more pop orientated sound, which is the point at which this collection finds her. Produced by the ever reliable Steve Lillywhite, "Walk Under Ladders" was Joan's eighth LP and comfortably reached the UK's Top Ten, and peaking at number 6 on its release in 1981. A set of solid, catchy and artistically respectable songs, this album established the artist as a versatile figurehead at the beginning of the decade.

As One (Expanded Edition)

KOOL & THE GANG need no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 70’s and 80’s having sold over 70 million albums worldwide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as ‘Summer Madness,’ ‘Get Down On It,’ ‘Celebration’ and who could forget that slammin’ funk monster that features so heavily in Quentin Tarantino’s cult flick - Pulp Fiction; ‘Jungle Boogie.’


1982 would see Kool & The Gang release AS ONE, their 16th studio album. AS ONE went on to become a U.S. Certified Gold album in November of 1982 helped by its top 30 position on the U.S. charts, and top 50 in the U.K. (spending 10 weeks in the U.K. album chart), while also climbing all the way to #5 on the U.S. R&B album chart. The legendary Grammy Award winning pianist, Eumir Deodato would once again take hold of production duties, assisted by Kool & The Gang. 

The first single release was ‘Big Fun,’ laden with a killer funky bass line and an equally impressive brass section; the single returned the group to the R&B top ten and UK top twenty. ‘Let’s Go Dancing (Ooh La La La)’ made the most noise on the chart front, earning an impressive top 30 position on the U.S. Pop charts like its predecessor and top 10 spots in both the U.S. R&B and U.K. charts. ‘Hi De Hi, Hi De Ho’ was also received well in the U.K. climbing to #29 on the U.K. charts while the third U.S. single, up-tempo, funky jam ‘Street Kids,’ became a further R&B chart hit.

Other notable tracks include the smooth and soulful album closer ‘Think It Over’ and the similarly paced title track.

BBR is proud to present AS ONE in fully expanded and newly re-mastered glory, complete with extensive liner notes including new interviews, and added bonus material.
