Naturally - Expanded edition - Leon Haywood

Naturally - Expanded edition
LEON HAYWOOD, who hailed from Houston, Texas, was a singer, songwriter , producer and pianist who is arguably best known in the USA for his crossover 1975 hit ‘I Want'a Do Something Freaky To You’ which has been sampled a multitude of times, most notably on Dr. Dre's ‘Nuthin' But A G Thang.’ Haywood had a long and varied career which included accompanying Guitar Slim on piano when he was still in his teens, as well as joining Sam Cooke's band as keyboardist until the singer passed away. During the 60's he released his own instrumental sides and singles as well as playing on R&B hits for short lived outfits such as The Packers and The Romeos. This period culminated in his first solo R&B hit ‘It's Got To Be Mellow’ which peaked at #21 in 1967 on Decca Records.

NATURALLY was Haywood's ninth studio album and was released in 1980 on 20th Century Fox Records, giving him his most successful release for many years with the LP peaking at #22 R&B and #92 Pop. Haywood was adept at appropriating the musician styles and trends of the day and NATURALLY exemplifies this skill as it stands up to, and in many instances surpasses many of his contemporaries at the time.

The opening track and first single, ‘Don't Push It, Don't Force It’ gave Haywood his biggest chart hit as it reached #2 R&B, #10 Disco and crossed over to #49 Pop, as well as #12 Pop in the U.K. The clean, crisp, funky tone of this mid-tempo groover locks you in from the opening bars and won't let go, setting the scene for the rest of the album. Second single ‘If You're Looking For A Night Of Fun (Look Past Me I'm Not The One)’ (R&B #67) is another incessantly solid and funky track with Haywood refreshingly looking to get to know his intended in body, mind and soul before gettin' it on. Other very notable tracks are ‘Daydream’ and the accusatory ‘Who You Been Giving It Up To.’

At this time Haywood also penned several songs for Carl Carlton's eponymous album including the smash hit ‘She's A Bad Mama Jama (She's Built, She's Stacked).’ Watch out for this album as a forthcoming release on BBR. · BBR is proud to release the first ever CD issue of NATURALLY, this fully remastered and repackaged edition comes with extensive liner notes and bonus content and is a must for all Funk, 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.
