Magic Journey: Expanded Edition - Salsoul Orchestra (The)

Magic Journey: Expanded Edition
· The brainchild of once MFSB member and legendary vibraphonist, Vince Montana Jr. came THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA.

· Formed in 1974, THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA, house band for the remarkable Salsoul Records, sometimes featured up to 50 members amongst its ranks. This included a number of former musicians from MFSB, the house band for the Gamble & Huff fronted Philadelphia International Records, who fused elements of Funk, Latin, Disco and Philly Soul into their compositions.

· Conducted by Vincent Montana Jr., THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA began an eight-year recording period in 1975 releasing eleven sensational albums during which time they featured production input from Tom Moulton, Stan Lucas, Patrick Adam and Bunny Sigler as well as the orchestra’s conductor.

· BBR is proud to bring you the third instalment of our Salsoul Orchestra reissues, MAGIC JOURNEY, which climbed all the way to #61 and spent an incredible 20 weeks on the R&B album charts. Recorded at the famous Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia with much of the writing, arranging and production being tended to by Vince Montana Jr. himself, MAGIC JOURNEY also features some great musicianship from legends like Bobby Eli, Ron Kersey, Norman Harris and Ron Baker to name but a few.

· Standout tracks include the hit single Run Away, which featured Loleatta Holloway on vocals and spent 6 weeks on the R&B charts peaking at #84. The track would later be revived by Masters At Work with the help of Vince Montana Jr. himself on their 1996 rendition under their Nu-Yorican Soul alias. Other notable tracks include Magic Bird Of Fire with its ominously driven beginning that gives way to an upbeat bass riff coupled with some R&B inspired piano as well as the unmistakable Salsoul groove, and Getaway, with its fusion of disco and Latin flavours.

· This newly re-mastered, fully expanded edition comes packaged complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content making this BBR re-master of The Salsoul Orchestra – Magic Journey a must have for all R&B, Funk, Soul, Latin, Disco, and Philly Soul fans out there!

Back Stabbers
THE O'JAYS were formed by five high school friends in 1958 who after seeing Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers perform, were inspired to start a vocal group. They spent time on various labels and released some fairly successful singles on Imperial Records working with H.B. Barnum and also Gamble & Huff, who were working as a production team for Neptune Records. Neptune folded in 1971 leaving THE O'JAYS, now a trio, in somewhat of a limbo. Having already captured the attention of Gamble & Huff, THE O'JAYS became one of the first signings at the newly formed, now legendary, Philadelphia International Records. Back Stabbers, released in 1972, was the album that made THE O'JAYS a household name and begun a period of incredible success with Philadelphia International, giving them close to 30 singles in the charts including a string of #1 R&B hits helping them to become one the labels biggest group and also serving as a landmark of the classic Philly Soul sound.  The title track was chosen for the first single and reached #5 on the US Pop chart while giving THE O'JAYS a #1 R&B hit. LOVE TRAIN followed suit and duly hit the top spot on the R&B charts as well as clinching the #1 position on the US Pop Chart.  BBR is so very proud to present the first ever expanded edition of this iconic Philly Soul album. Back Stabbers has been lovingly-mastered and carefully repackaged in full-expanded form. Complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews along with added bonus content.Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Funk, R&B and Philly Soul fans out there!
