Caldera/Sky Islands - Caldera

Caldera/Sky Islands

Originally formed in the mid-‘70s in Los Angeles, the jazz-fusion band Caldera made four albums for Capitol Records between 1976 and 1979. As part of its jazz-funk series, SoulMusic Records is proud to reissue the group’s first two LPs for the label, 1976’s self-titled set and the follow-up, 1977’s SKY ISLANDS in this two-on-one CD.


The brainchild of guitarist Jorge Strunz, the nucleus of the band included Eduardo Del Barrio (keyboards); Steve Tavaglione (sax); Mike "Baiano” Azevedo (percussion); Carlos Vega (drums); and Dean Cortez (bass). The album CALDERA (which featured the US R&B-charted single, ‘Out Of The Blue’) was produced by former member of The Crusaders, Wayne Henderson and featured primarily compositions by Strunz and Del Barrio.


The group’s acclaimed second set, SKY ISLANDS was produced by Del Barrio, Strunz and Earth, Wind & Fire keyboardist Larry Dunn (in his first outside production). In addition to Dunn as a musical guest, the album also featured a then-unknown Dianne Reeves on the title track (which she co-wrote with Dunn) and the much-revered standout cut, ‘Ancient Source.’ The LP achieved US chart status and has since become a classic among jazz-fusion and jazz-funk fans worldwide.


Illuminating notes by renowned US writer A. Scott Galloway include extensive quotes from Jorge Strunz, Eduardo Del Barrio, Wayne Henderson and Larry Dunn among others.

Duffy
60's blues fusion musician, writer and singer Duffy Power finally achieved a stand alone LP release in 1973 when an eponymous album hit the racks on the GSF label.

Produced by Adrian Millar, as one of several on going projects in a Production deal set up with partner Andrew Loog Oldham, the Duffy Power LP became to date the only purpose recorded album Duffy has had released in his career.

For this fine collection of Duffy originals Millar brought in a stellar cast of musicians, plus backing singers Dana Gillespie, Pam McKenna, Alexis Korner, and Del Newman for string arrangements, to help bring the songs to life.

The album was well received and Millar continued to be a fan of Duffy's songs, offering a second LP. Sessions were begun with a regular backing band called CWT ( see also the RATS (RPM 322) where they backed singer / songwriter David Kubinec). Sadly only three tracks survive today as yet again another Duffy album project remained on the shelf.

As a follow up to the two successful Anthologies of Duffy's 60's recordings RPM is proud to make available again for the first time in 30 years, and for the first time on CD, the 1973 LP Duffy Power, plus the three recordings from the aborted follow up album. The package includes very personal song by song annotation from Duffy, and more unseen photos from Duffy's archive.

B-H-Y
At first glance the letters B-H-Y may not seem like much, but a little scratch at the surface would reveal three names of some of the most forward thinking, innovative and talented musicians of their time and beyond – Ronnie Baker, Norman Harris and Earl Young.
Baker-Harris-Young, these three names are synonymous with Philly Soul and Disco and with good reason for no three people have had more input into shaping and defining disco as Baker, Harris and Young.
Earl Young, a highly talented drummer, was founder and leader of The Trammps along with band mate Ronnie Baker. Young is widely considered the innovator of the Disco style of drumming favouring extensive use of the hi-hat, which led to his recordings being favoured by DJs across the globe and along with Baker and Harris, the trio have become widely recognized as the founders of the disco sound.
As individuals Baker, Harris and Young were involved in every part of the burgeoning Philly Soul scene with each musician performing at Philadelphia International Records playing on numerous Gamble & Huff arrangements. As the formation of The Salsoul Orchestra came to fruition Baker-Harris-Young played an instrumental part in providing the musical direction and helping to sculpt the unique and instantly recognizable Salsoul brand that we all know and love.
BBR brings you the only album to ever feature Baker-Harris-Young as this Disco super-group showcasing the amazing talent of each musician. Featuring such hits as Handle Me With Love And Care, Marathon Dancer and I Just Want To Funk (With You).
Lovingly remastered and fully expanded, complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content this BBR Remaster is a must have for any Soul, Funk, Disco, R&B, Philly Soul and Salsoul fans out there!

Cookin’ On The Roof
ROMAN HOLLIDAY were an early 1980s pop band who mixed swing jazz into their sound to great effect.
In 1983, the band scored a memorable hit single with ‘Don’t Try To Stop It’, which peaked at No. 14 in the UK and made the US Billboard Top 75.
Debut album COOKIN’ ON THE ROOF reached the UK Top 40 and also graced the US Billboard listings, opening with their hit but also including the band’s earlier, minor hit ‘Stand By’ and subsequent Top 40 hit ‘Motormania.’
This is the first time that COOKIN’ ON THE ROOF has been on CD in the UK (it was only previously issued in Japan). It’s remastered from the original tapes with six bonus tracks.
Original members of ROMAN HOLLIDAY are helping out with this long-overdue reissue, contributing rare photos and pictures for the booklet as well as being involved with the sleeve-notes.

Logg
LOGG was a high profile project on Salsoul Records fronted by the prolific and inventive singer/songwriter/keyboardist and producer Leroy Burgess. The majority of Burgess’s output is on rare 12” singles and out of print albums and are highly sought after by crate diggers across the world.
Produced by both Burgess and Salsoul stalwart Greg Carmichael LOGG is a very high calibre album from the disco period which Burgess used as a showcase for his own wide ranging talents and that of his solid rhythm section James Calloway (bass) and Sonny Davenport (drums). All three players co-wrote every track on the LP.
As LOGG was one of Larry Levan’s favourite projects the irrepressible Paradise Garage DJ supported Burgess by spinning several Logg tracks in his club sets helping to guarantee a legendary status for the project.
‘I Know You Will’, the first single from LOGG (R&B #80), and the follow up ‘(You’ve Got) That Something’, along with ‘Dancing Into The Stars’, ‘Something Else’ and ‘Sweet To Me’ all became instant dance floor classics thanks to the support of Larry Levan and still delight dance floors across the globe today. This edition also features the ultimate Burgess classics ‘Heartbreaker’ and ‘Stranger’.
BBR is very proud to present LOGG, expertly re-mastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. LOGG is absolutely essential listening for all Soul, Funk, Disco and Dance fans out there!
