Queen of the Night: Expanded Edition - Loleatta Holloway

Queen of the Night: Expanded Edition
Loleatta Holloway was a dance music legend. Her amazing vocal talents gained her the reputation as one of the premier vocalists of soul and dance music during the 70’s and 80’s. Holloway started her singing career with Queen of Gospel, Albertina Walker (and her Caravans) before striking out on her own. She released her first single "Rainbow ‘71” on the fledgling Apache label before moving to Aware to record her first two albums prior to her work with Gold Mind/Salsoul.

QUEEN OF THE NIGHT, released in 1978 on Gold Mind/Salsoul Records, was the follow up to her breakthrough LP for the label in 1976, simply titled "Loleatta” and re-united her with Salsoul stalwart Norman Harris who took on the production duties. With QUEEN OF THE NIGHT being the singers second LP for this disco dominated label it confirmed her transformation from Southern soul songstress to disco royalty.

Norman Harris' soaring arrangements and infectious rhythms, allied with Holloways powerful vocals ensured that QUEEN OF THE NIGHT would gain commercial as well as critical success.

Opening track ‘Catch Me On The Rebound,’ (R&B #92) with its fluid, funky bass line, chopping rhythms and sweeping strings sets the tone for the album. Along with the opener, ‘Mama Don't, Papa Won't’ and ‘I May Not Be There When You Want Me (But I'm Right On Time)’ were also huge club hits, collectively peaking at #9 on the disco charts and all represented on this release in extended form. However the greatest success from the album was Holloways stunning duet with Bunny Sigler, ‘Only You,’ which peaked at #11R&B and #87 Pop, giving the singer her biggest ever hit.

BBR is proud to present QUEEN OF THE NIGHT. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus material.

This BBR re-master is a must have for all R&B, Soul and Disco fans out there!

Strange fruit
Strange Fruit' is a great undiscovered work of the acoustic rock / classic rock genres, cited by some as a minor masterpiece. In the late 60's Gary Farr made the transition from leader of R&B outfit The T-Bones to a noted singer-songwriter. Recording an album for Marmalade Records, Farr then signed to CBS Records in 1970, recording this sole album for the label. Sessions featured contributions from RICHARD THOMPSON on lead guitar and leading lights of the underground MIGHTY BABY. Unavailable on CD for many years, 'Strange Fruit' is a record made by an often overlooked singer-songwriter made available once more by Esoteric Recordings and is certain to appeal to all who adore acoustic music both melancholic and uplifting. The reissue also features the first ever CD appearance of the single edit of 'Revolution of the Season'. Our Price: £10.95

Cerrone's Paradise
The influence of JEAN-MARC CERRONE is second perhaps only to that of GIORGIO MORODER. Beginning as a drummer in the late 1960s, CERRONE would go on to sell over 30 million albums in a decades-spanning, internationally-successful career. After the international success of the genre-redefining LOVE IN C MINOR, CERRONE returned in 1977 with his second album, CERRONE'S PARADISE. The 16-minute title track became another enduring example of orchestral Eurodisco, while TAKE ME proved to be a club favourite and TIME FOR LOVE delighted fans with an unexpected excursion into Soulful Jazz territory.

Songs Of Love
Anita Ward hails from that hotbed of Southern Soul music Memphis, TN, and unsurprisingly started her association with music from an early age. Having honed her strong soprano voice singing Gospel in Memphis, Anita recorded with the Rust College A Capella Choir before going on to record with her own Gospel quartet. Anita then concentrated on a career as a teacher but her vocal talents could not be denied so before long her manager had turned her on to song-writer/producer Frederick Knight (who himself had a substantial R&B crossover hit in 1972 with ‘I’ve Been Lonely For So Long’ on the Stax imprint) and Knight was so impressed with Anita’s talents that the initial session progressed into a full albums worth of material.
The result of those sessions produced Anita’s debut LP SONGS OF LOVE (R&B #2 /Pop #8) and a deal with the legendary label T.K. Records was struck. The majority of the tracks on the album are mid-tempo grooves and stunning ballads which Anita owns with her warm soprano voice. Anita’s performance on this record strongly compliments the very assured song-writing and production from Knight with the stand out tracks being ‘Spoiled By Your Love’ and ‘There’s No Doubt About It’.
Despite having a very strong set of songs it was decided that the album was missing a final track so Knight re-worked a song he had written for a previous project and presented it to Anita. She was initially sceptical about the track but the song was recorded with Knight being one of the first to use synth-drums at that time. That track was the now legendary ‘Ring My Bell’, which became the albums only US single. ‘Ring My Bell’ was an instant hit and up-tempo disco classic which eclipsed the success of Donna Summer’s ‘Hot Stuff’ and Sister Sledges ‘We Are Family’ in the summer of 1979 by reaching the pinnacle across all of the main Billboard singles charts, securing an R&B, Pop and Disco #1 and selling over a million copies in the process, propelling Songs Of Love into the Billboard top ten. The song also topped charts internationally reaching #1 in New Zealand, Norway and the UK.
BBR is very proud to bring you SONGS OF LOVE, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content.
SONGS OF LOVE is essential for all R&B, Soul and Disco fans out there!
