Melody Of Life
Gwen McCrae, a gutsy soul singer in the southern style and initially influenced by such leading lights of the soul world as Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin, is known best for her 1975 R&B #1 "Rockin’ Chair”.
Having married George "Rock Your Baby” McCrae after a whirlwind romance in 1963 the couple became a vocal duo, ‘George & Gwen’ and were discovered by influential singer/producer Betty Wright in the late 60’s while performing extensively throughout South Florida. Betty Wright was able to help them get a recording deal at Henry Stones Alston imprint which led to a move to Columbia Records before going back to a different Henry Stone imprint, Cat. A succession of singles were released during this period with modest success until she hit the R&B #1 spot with the aforementioned ‘Rockin’ Chair’ in 1975 and followed it up with her debut LP of the same name. Gwen recorded several more albums for the Cat imprint with reasonable R&B chart success before teaming up again with Betty Wright who produced her final LP for the label, MELODY OF LIFE, in 1979.
MELODY OF LIFE opens with intent with McCrae putting down a strong, soulful vocal on "All This Love That I’m Givin’” backed up with a great synth bass line helping it to become a much lauded underground dance floor favourite up to the present day despite not charting on its release. From ‘I Can Only Think Of You’ onwards MELODY OF LIFE provides elegant and endearing soulful backdrops for McCrae’s stunning vocals to soar over. ‘The Joy’ has a positive groove led by the bass guitar and backed up with an energetic horn section. On every track McCrae is at her impassioned best, a great example of which is ‘Ease The Pain’ where McCrae builds the track to a emotional crescendo, tapping right in to the song’s theme of loneliness.
BBR is very proud to present an often overlooked soul classic MELODY OF LIFE with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks.
MELODY OF LIFE is essential listening for all Soul and R&B fans out there!

Think it Over (Expanded Edition)
Cissy Houston (born Emily Drinkard) has had a long and varied career as a background vocalist, session singer and solo artist but is probably best known for being the mother of the massively successful R&B star Whitney Houston, and the aunt of both Dionne and Dee Dee Warwick. Houston began her career with the family gospel group The Drinkards before joining forces with The Group in the early 60’s. The Group, which included some time members Doris Troy and Dee Dee Warwick, sang background vocals on a number of soul, pop and rock releases, many of which were on Atlantic Records. Atlantics Jerry Wexler signed the group in their own right where they recorded some great gospel-soul in the late 60’s under the name The Sweet Inspirations.

During her time with The Sweet Inspirations Houston sang back-up vocals for Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Lou Rawls, The Drifters, Dusty Springfield, Van Morrison (Brown Eyed Girl), The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Elvis Presley (the ’69 Vegas comeback) and her niece Dionne Warwick. Having gone solo in 1969 Houston recorded the original version of "Midnight Train To Georgia” (later a #1 single for Gladys Knight and The Pips) on her only album for Janus Records.

In 1978 Houston released THINK IT OVER, her second LP on Private Stock Records under the guidance of arranger/producer Michael Zager. This album introduced Houston to the Disco world with the title track and lead single "Think It Over” 
reaching a respectable #32 on the Billboard R&B charts and #5 on the Disco charts. "Think It Over” is bona-fide dance floor dynamite with its solid beat and shuffling percussive elements that propel the track forward, the beautiful marriage of piano and strings augmented with arresting, uplifting horn refrains, married to Houston’s incredible, gospel infused, soulful and impassioned vocal. The second single "Warning – Danger” is in much the same vain, again the piano, string and horn interplay is oh so satisfying. Other strong tracks are the groover "Somebody Should Have Told Me,” and the bold ballad "After You” which showcases Houston’s vocal dexterity.

BBR is very proud to present CISSY HOUSTON, expertly re-mastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. CISSY HOUSTON is absolutely essential listening for all Soul, Disco and Pop fans out there!

Relight My Fire: Expanded Edition
    Daniel Earl Hartman a.k.a. DAN HARTMAN was an American musician, singer, songwriter and producer who hailed from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He is best known for his disco hits ‘Instant Replay,’ ‘Love Sensation’ and ‘Relight My Fire’ as well as penning the second biggest hit for the Edgar Winter Group, ‘Free Ride,’ of which he was a member. Having schooled himself playing bass and writing songs for his first band The Legends (which also included his brother Dave) Hartman joined the Edgar Winter Group and appeared on three of their albums before going solo in 1976.

    After initially releasing the magnificently titled promotional album "Who Is Dan Hartman and Why is Everyone Saying Wonderful Things About Him?,” which was a retrospective on his career until that point, Hartman scored big in 1978 with the #1 Disco smash ‘Instant Replay’ (from the album of the same name) which also crossed over to the U.S. And U.K. Pop charts.

    In 1979 Hartman released RELIGHT MY FIRE (R&B #67, Pop #169), and again hit the top of the Disco charts with the title track, a bonefide disco classic that featured Hartman's friend Loleatta Holloway on vocals and is preceded by the understated "Vertigo” which perfectly sets your anticipation before the main event.  ‘Relight My Fire’ was subsequently covered by U.K. boy band Take That featuring Lulu, who took their version to the top of the U.K. Pop charts in 1993.

    Throughout the LP Hartman keeps the party energy in full flow and on the opener ‘Hands Down’ we are treated to Stevie Wonder and Edgar Winter trading licks on harmonica and sax respectively.  ‘Just For Fun’ has a very solid syncopated groove in contrast to the tone of the lyric and exemplifies Hartman's production style. On closer ‘Free Ride’ Hartman shows off his deft production skills by taking the hit he wrote for the Edgar Winter Group and changing the rhythmic emphasis to take the track firmly into the dance floor realm.

    Hot Shot Records/BBR is proud to present RELIGHT MY FIRE. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with a foreword from mixer John Luongo, extensive liner notes and added bonus material.

    This BBR/Hot Shot Records re-master is a must have for all Disco, Dance and Pop fans out there!

Chaka: 35th Anniversary Edition
•    CHAKA KHAN (born Yvette Marie Stevens) is one of R&B and Soul music’s most enduring female vocalists having enjoyed a career spanning four decades boasting multiple Grammy awards and a succession of hit singles including the smash #1 R&B classics ‘I’m Every Woman,’ and the Prince penned ‘I Feel For You.’

•    After building her career performing with many groups in the late 60’s and early 70’s Khan found wider acclaim and notoriety from 1972 when she joined the pivotal Funk group Rufus as lead singer. After six successful years with Rufus, who achieved six gold or platinum albums, Khan went solo in 1978 releasing CHAKA, the first of many hit albums she recorded for Warner Bros Records.

•    On its release CHAKA had an immediate impact on the charts peaking at #2 R&B and #12 Pop. Khan proved that her dynamic vocal style could hold its own ground outside the successful Rufus set up. The opening track and first single from the album was the aforementioned solid gold R&B classic ‘I’m Every Woman’ which topped the R&B singles charts and peaked at #21 Pop and #30 Disco, having found a home in the discotheques just as comfortably as on the radio. This ground breaking song was written especially for Khan by the prolific partnership of Ashford & Simpson and proved to be the ideal showcase for the versatile singer.

•    The second single ‘Life Is A Dance’ reached a very respectable #40 R&B. Another stand out track is the beautiful ballad ‘Roll Me Through The Rushes’ which commanded heavy rotation on the radio air waves despite never being released as a single and shows yet another side to Khan’s vocal dexterity. ‘Some Love’ however could be argued as the best track on the album with its propulsive funky bass intro, strong dynamic vocal, chanting horns and soaring strings that have been calling clubbers to the dance floor for decades.

•    BBR is very proud to bring you, CHAKA, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and interviews.

•    CHAKA is an essential purchase for all R&B, Soul, Funk, Disco and Pop fans out there!

•    Released 07/04/2014

Track Listing:

1.    I’M EVERY WOMAN
2.    LOVE HAS FALLEN ON ME
3.    ROLL ME THROUGH THE RUSHES
4.    SLEEP ON IT
5.    LIFE IS A DANCE
