Benét (Expanded Edition) - Benét

Benét (Expanded Edition)
Before Milwaukee-born singer/songwriter Eric Benét began his solo career and began his ascent to international recognition as a best-selling contemporary recording artist and performer, he was a member of a short-lived duo with his sister Lisa that was known simply as Benét. The duo released a CD on EMI Records in 1992 that has become a curio collectible for fans of quality music and all curious about Eric’s formative roots as a recording artist.

The primary creative forces behind the project were Eric and his cousin George Nash Jr. (who has continued to work with him through his solo projects) who co-wrote five of the tracks together.  Nash also co-produced seven cuts, working on five with renowned smooth jazz/R&B keyboardist and producer Jeff Lorber and with the late Robert Brookins and with Bryan Loren on one track each.  Songwriter Sami McKinney (known for songs recorded by Anita Baker, Nancy Wilson and Patti LaBelle among others) produced three cuts with Lorber as co-producer. The CD’s only single, "Only Want To Be With You” reached No. 75 on the US Top 100 R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart. 

The CD included a soulful version of The Carpenters’ classic hit, "Rainy Days And Mondays.”  As Eric explained in an interview for the notes by A. Scott Galloway for this 2013 reissue, "We grew up loving harmony… The Carpenters always did innovative vocal things that we loved so "Rainy Days and Mondays” was a natural choice…” Notes include quotes from Eric, Lisa, George Nash Jr. Jeff Lorber and executive Alison Ball Kilmer.

This expanded edition includes an instrumental version of "Only Want To Be Witih You”.

Hot Shots
Karen Young, born in March of 1951, grew up in Northeast Philadelphia, PA. Early in her career she sang on various jingles and as a background vocalist for a number of Philadelphia production companies, later performing with a group by the name of Sandd.
In 1978 Karen Young released HOT SHOT on the New York based disco label West End Records. HOT SHOT featured 3 singles including the immensely popular single HOT SHOT, which rose all the way to #67 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and also spent two weeks at the top of the US Dance charts and with it propelling Karen Young from obscurity to stardom almost overnight.
HOT SHOT was written, arranged and produced by Philadelphia’s very own Kurt Borusiewicz and Andy Kahn all overseen by Grammy Award Winner Walter "Kandor” Kahn as executive producer.
Daft Punk later sampled HOT SHOT on Indo Silver Club, featured on their debut album, Homework, released in 1996. Over 10 years later, remixes of HOT SHOT from MaxRoxx Music, DJ Ralphi Rosario, DJ Wayne G, DJ Paul Goodyear and Andy Kahn himself climbed all the way to #7 for two weeks on Billboard Magazine's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart Returning Karen Young’s name to the charts for 5 weeks almost 30 years since the original release.
Big Break Records is very proud to bring you HOT SHOT for the first time on CD anywhere! Digitally remastered HOT SHOT comes complete with liner notes and added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have for all disco, R&B, funk and soul fans out there!
