Carl Carlton: Expanded Edition - Carl Carlton

Carl Carlton: Expanded Edition
•    CARL CARLTON, born in 1952 and hailing from Detroit, Michigan, was an R&B, Funk and Soul singer/songwriter who is arguably best known for his crossover hits "Everlasting Love” from 1974 and the Leon Haywood penned "She's A Bad Mama Jama (She's Built, She's Stacked)” from 1981 which features on this, his eponymously titled album release from the same year. Carlton's career got started through the most coincidental of circumstances - while playing baseball with friends in a vacant lot a neighbour called down and yelled for the boys to "stop playing and turn that radio off,” the reply came back, "that ain't no radio, that's Carl.” Within a short space of time the astonished neighbour had helped Carlton secure a deal with Lando Records in the mid-sixties, recording under the name "Little” Carl Carlton, as his voice had similarities to Stevie Wonder.

•    After moving on to Back Beat Records and working with the likes of Gamble/Huff and Bunny Sigler, where he recorded several favourites on the Northern Soul scene, and which culminated in the #6 Pop hit "Everlasting Love,” Carlton put a period of inactivity behind him in the late 70's when Leon Haywood helped him get a singles deal with 20th Century Fox Records in 1980 and took on the production duties.  

•    The first single to be released from CARL CARLTON was Haywood's "This Feeling's Rated X-tra,” (R&B #57) a solid, low tempo, funky ode to doing the nasty, with a stunning combination of smooth strings and punching horn refrains and was backed with James Ingram’s "Fighting In The Name Of Love”. The success of the first single led to the release of "She's A Bad Mama Jama (She's Built, She's Stacked)” (R&B #2/Pop #22/UK #34). This iconic track, which opens up with its unmistakeable and infectious rising bass line before giving way to the chorus and celebrating the physical virtues of the "She” in question, is now undeniably a classic R&B single. The crossover success of this single gave Carlton a greater audience for the forthcoming album and CARL CARLTON climbed to #34 on the Billboard Hot 200 giving the singer a career renaissance. "Sexy Lady and "I Think It's Gonna Be Alright,” were also released as singles, the latter reaching #65 on the R&B chart.

•    BBR is proud to release CARL CARLTON, this fully remastered and re-packaged edition comes with extensive liner notes and bonus content and is a must for all R&B, 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.
