Celebrate: Expanded Edition - Kool & The Gang

Celebrate: 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.’”

 

· CELEBRATE!, released in 1980, once again featured the production of legendary Grammy Award Winner, Eumir Deodato. The album garnered huge success, reaching the top spot on the U.S. R&B charts, and top ten positions in both the U.S. and U.K. pop charts, gaining platinum certification in February 1981.

 

· The albums singles performed just as impressively with CELEBRATION, arguably the group’s most successful song, hitting the top spot on the US Billboard Pop and R&B charts and #7 in the U.K. winning platinum status in the U.S. along the way. CELEBRATION also hit the top of the charts all around the world and was later redubbed with Spanish vocals and released to the Latin American market as CELEBREMOS, and featured as a B-side to TAKE IT TO THE TOP which hit a top 20 spot in the U.K. The soulful lament JONES VS. JONES closed out the single releases gaining a top 40 spot in the U.S. and a top 20 in the U.K., making #17.

 

· BBR is proud to present CELEBRATE! This fully expanded and newly remastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and bonus material.

 

· Released in a deluxe Super Jewel case, this BBR re-master is a must have for all Soul, Funk, R&B, Disco and Pop fans out there!

Drama V: Expanded Edition
· The Detroit-based Dramatics (originally formed in 1962) had hit their stride by the time they recorded DRAMA V, their sixth overall album (and second for ABC Records) in 1975, a follow-up to LP, "The Dramatic Jackpot.”
· The quintet (which had experienced a number of personnel changes over the preceding years) had established themselves in the premier league of black male vocal groups thanks to early ‘70s hits such as the classics, ‘Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get’ and ‘In The Rain’ for Volt Records.
· Working with producer Don Davis, songwriter Tony Hester and key musician/songwriter Michael Henderson – the team who had been responsible for their breakthrough Volt hits – among others, The Dramatics (L.J. Reynolds, Willie Ford, Ron Banks, Larry "Squirrell” Demps and Lenny Mayes) scored a US Top 10 R&B charted album with DRAMA V, thanks to standout tracks such as ‘Just Shopping (Not Buying Anything),’ ‘Dramatic Theme/Treat Me Like A Man’ (both penned by Henderson) and ‘I Was The Life Of The Party.’
· Making its worldwide CD debut, this SoulMusic Records’ reissue includes one bonus track, the Top 10 US R&B single version of ‘You’re Fooling You’ along with liner notes by renowned US writer Quentin Harrison with 2013 quotes from Michael Henderson.

Why Can't We Live Together: Expanded Version
· Timmy Thomas is a keyboardist, R&B singer, songwriter and producer who hails from Evansville, Indiana where he was born on the 13th of November 1944. As a keyboardist Thomas came to prominence as an accompanist with Jazz legends Donald Byrd and Cannonball Adderley in the early 60’s before joining the group Phillip & The Faithfuls, releasing several singles on the Goldwax record label in 1964, before settling in Memphis as a session musician while still releasing solo sides for Goldwax with modest success. After a brief stint on the Climax label in 1970 Thomas found a new home on Glades Records, a subsidiary of T.K. Records, in Miami in 1972.

 

· WHY CAN’T WE LIVE TOGETHER was the first of four albums Thomas recorded on Glades Records and with the title track released as the first single in late 1972 Thomas had his first and biggest hit with ‘Why Can’t We Live Together’ which peaked at #1 R&B and #3 Pop in the U.S., and #12 in the U.K. The success of the title track propelled the album to #10 R&B and #53 Pop in 1973.

 

· "Why Can’t We Live Together” has a very stripped down production, a sound echoed throughout the album, with Thomas’s soulful organ played in an improvisational style over the rhythm sections, giving room for his impassioned vocals. Other notable cuts on the album are the standard ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ and a cover of The Chi-lites ‘The Coldest Days Of My Life.’

 

· BBR is very proud to bring you WHY CAN’T WE LIVE TOGETHER, completely remastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content and a brand new interview with Timmy Thomas.

 

· WHY CAN’T WE LIVE TOGETHER is a must have for all R&B, Soul, Jazz and Funk fans out there!
