As One (Expanded Edition) - Kool & The Gang

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.

Keep Your Distance
A long overdue reissue of the 1987 #1 debut album by Curiosity Killed The Cat. It's an essential album for all collectors of 80's pop.

This 16 track CD, features the 9 tracks of the original album, 4 extended 12" mixes from the single releases that were included on a subsequent reissue of the album plus 3 bonus tracks to make this a very comprehensive collection of the band's most successful material. The album was a number 1 UK album in 1987 and remained on the charts for 24 weeks.
This collection features 4 hit singles including Down To Earth #3, Misfit #7, Ordinary Day #11 and Free #54. The 3 bonus tracks featured are b/sides Man, Corruption
(Dub) available on CD for the first time and Bullet.
A comprehensive booklet featuring sleeve notes and a full UK discography featuring many of their sleeves. Curiosity Killed The Cat fronted by the charismatic Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot enjoyed their first hit with Down To Earth in December of 1986. With their James Dean looks, vibrant
street energy and cutting edge soul pop sound it seemed for a while as if Curiosity Killed the Cat may have possessed, a perfect recipe for success in the late eighties pop market.

Initially the band were labelled as a boy band but this ignores the band's undoubted musical backbone and talent. Hit singles were to follow as were two successful albums, their musical and commercial high point being their debut album and the focus of this reissue Keep Your Distance.

From A to B/Anwhere
New Musik formed in 1977 in London, growing out of a casual band of South London school friends who jammed together under the name End of the World Songwriter and record producer Tony Mansfield was the lead vocalist and frontman for the band, and was joined in the original line-up by, bassist Tony Hibbert and drummer Phil Towner.Rather than immediately pursue a recording contract, New Musik chose to hone their craft first. Working during down times at a recording studio where Mansfield was informally employed as a session musician and apprentice sound engineer, the foursome recorded most of what would become their first two albums before approaching the UK record label, GTO Records with the finished master tapes. However, before GTO released the first New Musik single, Straight Lines, in August 1979, Straker had left for a solo career, He was replaced by Clive Gates, and the new line-up completed New Musik's debut album, From A to B, which was released in April 1980.New Musik made their first appearance on the BBC TV pop programme, Top of the Pops, in October 1979 with their debut Straight Lines, From A to B reached the Top 40 in the UK Albums Chart and contained four hit singles: Straight Lines, Living by Numbers, This World of Water and Sanctuary. The band also topped the French singles chart with On Islands from the same album.

Love Conquers All- Expanded Edition
Released on 29/08/11. Before embarking on a solo career in the 1980s, Californian R&B singer Michael Wycoff was best known for singing backup on Stevie Wonder’s 1976 album Songs In The Key Of Life and working with artists including Natalie Cole. Love Conquers All was Wycoff’s second album, containing the hit R&B single Looking Up To You and the underground dance classic Diamond Real. Wycoff released three albums in the 1980s before falling on hard times and ultimately rebuilding his life through the church. Wycoff might have become just one more forgotten artist, but after Zhane sampled Looking UP To You on their 1994 Top Ten US Pop hit HEY MR. D.J. fans rediscovered Love Conquers All, which remains a highly sought-after underground classic to this day. BBR is very proud to present Love Conquers All in full and expanded form, complete with extensive liner notes that feature interviews along with added bonus tracks.
