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!

Prog Is Not A Four Letter Word
Whoever came up with the over-pretentious, collective term "Progressive Rock" couldn’t have been less forward thinking. Prog rock in its truest form was not a ‘restrictive’ genre - it was a movement that unified ALL genres.

Forget such flamboyant cover stars such as Genesis, Yes and ELP, what of the truly progressive international rock musicians who started their own hybrid-hurricanes outside the rectangular iris of Prog's media storm? What about the unintentionally progressive musicians from the far reaches of the globe who were forced to create their own brand of psychedelic rock in a country shielded from the influence of the western world? And why don’t we spare a thought (and some needle time), for the culturally progressive crusaders carrying the rock-music flag in the face of political adversity risking social ostrasization or even death?

Even though most of the 15 tracks on this compilation were recorded over 30 years ago they still, individually embody a wide range of challenging progressive musical ideas which are as relevant today as they were when the vinyl first came off the press in each of their scattered countries of origin.

"Prog Is Not A Four Letter Word" is the follow-up to ANDY VOTEL (TWISTED NERVE)’s critically acclaimed "Folk Is Not A Four Letter Word" (CDDELAY01), which caused quite a stir earlier this year.

The majority of these tracks have never before been on CD, many appear here for the first time away from their highly sought after, and stupendously rare, original releases.

Don’t Let Go : Expanded Edition
Soul legend ISAAC HAYES released his third Polygram album DON’T LET GO in 1979, at the height of the Disco era. After his first two albums for the label had performed respectively, this time the title track gave him an out-and-out hit.

Originally a hit for ROY HAMILTON in 1957, DON’T LET GO returned Ike to both the R&B top 20 and the Pop top 20 in addition to reaching #3 on the Disco chart. A FEW MORE KISSES TO GO, another self-penned ballad, proved a modest R&B hit at the time but is still heard on Quiet Storm radio today.

In addition, the album features a Disco version (possibly the first ever) of the PEGGY LEE classic, FEVER. The album reached #9 R&B and #39 Pop and was certified Gold. This reissue features six bonus tracks including the 7” B-side YOU CAN’T HOLD YOUR WOMAN and 12” remixes of DON’T LET GO and A FEW MORE KISSES TO GO.

Eargasm
JOHNNIE TAYLOR was born in Crawfordsville Arkansas in 1934. He grew up in West Memphis where he performed in Gospel groups as a youngster. Johnnie would later take the place of Lou Rawls in the Gospel group, Highway QCs, a sextet that also helped launch the career of Sam Cooke, the Highway QCs’ founder, who Johnnie would go on to replace in The Soul Stirrers in 1957 as Cooke concentrated on his solo career.
A few years later and JOHNNIE TAYLOR was signed to Sam Cooke’s independent label, SAR Records where he recorded ‘Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day’ in 1962 and stayed there until the untimely death of Sam Cooke in 1964 when the label subsequently became defunct.
By 1966 JOHNNIE TAYLOR had moved to the legendary Stax Records where he was dubbed "The Philosopher Of Soul” and recorded with Stax house band, Booker T. & The MGs, releasing a string of chart hits and Gold records and established himself as a flagship artist for Stax alongside greats such as Isaac Hayes and The Staples Singers. After the demise of Stax JOHNNIE TAYLOR signed to Columbia Records where he would record EARGASM, the album that would create his best known hit- DISCO LADY.
Recorded in 1976, EARGASM’s first single, DISCO LADY, was a #1 hit in both the US Pop and R&B charts and even scored an impressive #25 in the UK. The follow up single, SOMEBODY’S GETTIN’ IT, was also well received scoring a top 40 position on the competitive US Pop chart and rose all the way to #5 on the R&B charts. Other notable tracks on the album include the B-Side to SOMEBODY’S GETTIN’ IT, PLEASE DON’T STOP (THAT SONG FROM PLAYING). A smooth, soul number with subtle additions of great, funk guitar licks and a lovely string section. Also YOU”RE THE BEST IN THE WORLD which was recently sampled on Kraak and Smaak 2008 hit – Squeeze Me.
BBR is very excited to present this wonderfully repackaged and beautifully re-mastered edition of JOHNNIE TAYLOR’s EARGASM complete with liner notes and added bonus content.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, EARGASM is a must have for all Soul, Funk, Gospel, R&B and Disco fans out there!
