How High: Expanded Edition
•    BBR is proud to bring you HOW HIGH, the seventh instalment of our Salsoul Orchestra reissues .

•    THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA was the brainchild of once MFSB member and legendary vibraphonist, Vince Montana Jr. Formed in 1974, THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA, house band for the remarkable Salsoul Records, sometimes featured up to 50 members amongst its ranks including a number of former musicians from MFSB, and fused elements of Funk, Latin, Disco and Philly Soul into their compositions. THE SALSOUL ORCHESTRA began an eight-year recording period in 1975 releasing eleven sensational albums during that time featuring production input from, Stan Lucas, Patrick Adams, Bunny Sigler and Tom Moulton through the years.

•    Released in 1978 and recorded at the famous Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia, as well as Blank Tape Studios and Trident Sound, HOW HIGH was  produced in the main by Salsoul Records singer/songwriter Bunny Sigler with Ron Baker, Ron Tyson, Steve O' Donnell and Colin Horton Jennings also contributing to production duties .

•    Stand out tracks include the opener, title track and single "How High” (R&B #62/Pop #105/Disco #21), a solid, funky disco groove with crisp, driving drums and percussion and great interplay between the saxophone, guitar, vibes and vocals (also represented on this release with a Larry Levan remix), My Number's Up’ and ‘I'll Keep You Warm,’ both great percussion and horn led dancers with a carnival feel, and "Resorts International,” a typically feel good Salsoul stomp.     

•    This newly remastered edition of HOW HIGH comes complete with extensive liner notes and bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have for all Funk, Soul, Disco and Philly Soul fans out there!

Crawler / Snake Rattle and Roll
Field a not in Database

20 mouth-watering servings of classic British [with a fair helping of American] rock from the mid/late-seventies. The band was formed by the remaining members of Back Street Crawler after the demise of their ex-Free, legendary main man and all-round guitar hero, Paul Kossoff. Our Broadside release brings together their two fantastic Epic/CBS albums from 1977 and 1978 – in their entirety. This is the UK/European debut of these albums on CD, and the first time that they have appeared anywhere together as a complete – and specially priced – package. Also includes a bonus track: the single version of ‘Stone Cold Sober'.

Megaton
A thrilling, no-holds-barred, heavy rock treatment
of a clutch of riff-based but fairly commercial pop tunes,
Megaton'ssole album has plenty of admirers these days. Perhaps
this should be a rock label staple, but the LPs origins are more pop
than that with more akin to those ranks of over looked production
library classics recorded for one purpose and taking on a different
guise and importance to collectors years later. For Megaton is
the creative inspiration of vocal harmony leader Les Humphries (as in
The Les Humphries Singers, big hit makers in early 70'sGermany) and his
writing partner/right hand LHS man, Jimmy Bilsbury. Perhaps
having the likes of future Uriah Heep vocalist John Lawton in the midst
of the LHS was an inspiration, but whatever, Humphries nose for a
commercial opportunity sniffed out the Free, Led Zep hard rock/ blues
rock market and he duly delivered. A 1971 Deram release, first in
Germany, other territories later inc. South America, and the UK -where
today such a pressing can set you back over £700 ! RPM presents
it'sfirst legitimate reissue on CD.
Our Price: £9.95
