Getting the Holy Ghost Across (Expanded and Remastered) - Bill Nelson

Getting the Holy Ghost Across (Expanded and Remastered)

· NEWLY REMASTERED EDITION OF BILL NELSON’s 1986 ALBUM

· EXPANDED OVER TWO CDs TO MAKE A COLLECTION OF THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS MADE BY BILL NELSON FOR THE PORTRAIT RECORD LABEL

· INCLUDES ELEVEN BONUS TRACKS INCLUDING THREE NEVER BEFORE ISSUED ON CD

· BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY

ESOTERIC RECORDINGS imprint Cocteau Discs, the home of BILL NELSON’s catalogue between 1971 and 2001, continues their series of on-going releases with the newly remastered and expanded release of his 1986 album "GETTING THE HOLY GHOST ACROSS”. Released in 1986, the record was Bill’s sole album for the Portrait label, and was a superbly realised work. Previously released on CD as strictly limited edition of 500 copies on Bill’s Sonolux label, the album is hugely sought after on CD by collectors.

This Cocteau Discs edition is expanded over two CDs to include all the material from the "LIVING FOR THE SPANGLED MOMENT” and the "WILDEST DREAMS” 12-INCH EPs, (featuring three tracks previously unreleased on CD). The reissue fully restores the original album artwork and features a new note by Bill Nelson.

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.

Trouble
We have a small number of signed albums by Ken Hensley! Order now while stocks last!





·       A legendary figure in rock, Ken Hensley has a long and illustrious career, having recorded with and performed with acts as diverse as British 60s psyche rockers The Gods to southern American rockers Blackfoot… but Ken is probably best known for the albums he made in the 1970s as a musician and songwriter with British heavy rock institution, Uriah Heep; from 1970’s "Very ’Eavy Very ’Umble” until 1980’s "Conquest”.
·       He has also guested with bands as diverse as Cinderella, WASP, and Therion! And a special mention to Toe Fat that Ken formed with Cliff Bennett. 
·       In 2006 he formed Live Fire, providing his trademark keyboards, guitar and vocals, alongside Norwegian Ken Ingwersen on guitar, initially just to perform Ken’s songs live.  
·       In 2009, Tom Arne Fossheim joined as drummer, then in 2011 Ken Hensley & Live Fire released their first studio album "Faster”, followed by the self-explanatory "Live!!” earlier this year.  
·       Produced by Ken, "Trouble” is not only his third record fronting the band Live Fire, but now one of over 50 albums Ken Hensley has recorded or featured on!  
·       Kicking off with ‘Ready To Die’, and with a line-up now completed by Roberto Tiranti on bass, "Trouble” will be promoted across Europe with concerts as far apart as Germany, Finland, Spain and the Ukraine.

Thelma & Jerry/Two To One: Expanded Edition
·       Continuing to reissue classic original albums from the Motown catalogue, SoulMusic Records is very proud to present the worldwide reissue debut* of two albums by THELMA HOUSTON and JERRY BUTLER on one CD, an expanded edition with one bonus track. (* "Thelma & Jerry” was issued on CD on US Motown in 1992). 
·        By 1977 when they began recording together, Thelma Houston was enjoying her first wave of across-the-board international success with her now-classic cover of Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes’ ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’; a year earlier, established hitmaker Jerry Butler had signed with Motown and released his label debut "Love’s On The Menu” (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2013 along with his second Motown LP, "Suite For A Single Girl,” SMCR-25086).  ·       With production by Butler himself and Homer Talbert and Motown hitmaker Hal Davis and Michael B. Sutton, THELMA & JERRY (a US Top 20 R&B album) included covers of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Joy Inside My Tears’;  a medley of Chicago’s ‘If You Leave Me Now’ with The Bee Gees’ ‘Love So Right’; and a Top 100 R&B charted single, ‘It’s A Lifetime Thing’ (the flipside of which "Kiss Me Now” is included on this CD reissue as a bonus track). 
·       The follow-up 1978 LP TWO TO ONE consisted of just two Houston-Butler duets (left over from sessions for the previous album) and three solo tracks from each performer.  
·       Notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring include 2013 quotes from Thelma Houston.

Joy Ride: Expanded Edition
·       The follow up to the best-selling album "Drama V” (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2013, SMCR-5104), the 1976 LP JOY RIDE proved to be even more successful for the Detroit-based Dramatics (originally formed in 1962), spawning a US Top 20 chart hit with ‘Finger Fever’ and two US Top 10 R&B hit singles (‘Be My Girl,’ #3 and ‘I Can’t Get Over You,’ #9) both of which became staple tunes in the group’s live performances.   
·       The quintet (by 1976, consisting of L.J. Reynolds, Willie Ford, Ron Banks, Larry "Squirrell” Demps and Lenny Mayes) had established themselves as hitmakers with  classics such as ‘Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get’ and ‘In The Rain’ for Volt Records. 
·       The three primary producers on JOY RIDE had been key players in the group’s previous success - Don Davis, songwriter Tony Hester and key musician/artist in his own right Michael Henderson.  In addition, two members of the group – Ron Banks and L.J. Reynolds - stepped up with each producing one track while longtime arranger Jimmy Roach wrote and produced another standout cut, ‘I Get Carried Away.’  Henderson’s ‘Be My Girl’ quickly became one of the album’s highlights (with his own version competing with the group’s for US airplay) propelling JOY RIDE into the US Top 20 R&B Albums chart. 
·       This SoulMusic Records’ reissue includes two bonus tracks, single versions of ‘Be My Girl’ and ‘Sundown Is Coming’ along with liner notes by renowned US writer Janine Coveney with 2013 quotes from Michael Henderson.
