Tymes Up (Expanded Edition)

Philadelphia-based group The Tymes - who first came to prominence in 1963 with the timeless classic ‘So Much In Love’ – ended a six-year dry spell as chartmakers in 1974 with ‘You Little Trustmaker’ (a Top 20 hit in the US and UK), marking the beginning of a new period of success for the famed vocal harmony team.  
 
Following the success  of their first RCA album (entitled Trustmaker which included the UK chart topper, ‘Ms. Grace’), the group – consisting of original members Al Berry,  George Williams and Norman Burnett along with Donald Banks, Wade Davis and Jerry Ferguson) –cut TYMES UP with longtime mentor, manager, producer and songwriter Billy Jackson at the helm.  

Recorded at famed Sigma Sound studios in both New York and Philadelphia, the sessions for TYMES UP included such renowned personnel as arranger Richie Rome, conductor Don Renaldo (with the TSOP horns and strings) and top players, drummer Bernard Purdie and guitarist Cornell Dupree.  Ace remix producer Tom Moulton mixed the entire project and TYMES UP became a Top 40 R&B LP.

Primary hit single from the LP was ‘It’s Cool’ (which reached No. 3 on the US R&B charts), penned by the team of Chuck Jackson & Marvin Yancy (at the time, producing consistent hits with Natalie Cole); other singles included ‘Only Your Love’ and ‘To The Max(imum),’ both Top 3 Billboard-charted Disco Singles. 

This 2014 expanded edition marks the first CD reissue of the LP worldwide, includes two single edits and liner notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring with quotes from songwriter (and future recording artist) Fonzi Thornton.

California Sunset- Expanded Edition
BBR delves deep into the vaults of Motown to bring you an exclusive, never before on CD, reissue of California Sunset by The Originals. This highly sought after album is considered one of THE ultimate underground Motown classics by Soul fans everywhere.

Formed in 1966, THE ORIGINALS worked as studio backup singers and featured on tracks like What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted by Jimmy Ruffin, For Once In My Life by Stevie Wonder and Edwin Starr’s politically fuelled jam, War. The group was made up of four singers, the group's baritone and founder Walter Gaines, tenors Hank Dixon and C.P. Spencer, an original member of Spinners and also bass singer, Freddie Gorman, who was one of the writers of Please Mr. Postman.

By 1970 Spencer had gone solo and was replaced by Ty Hunter who had been the lead singer with Scherrrie Payne in the R&B group, The Glass House.

In the late 60s, under the guidance and writing expertise of Al Green, The Originals scored two of their biggest hits early in their career with Baby I'm For Real and the Gold certified, The Bells. Produced by one of Motown’s legendary producers, Lamont Dozier, California Sunset contains smooth instrumentation and warm vocals befitting of the album title. Tracks like the R&B hit, Good Lovin Is Just A Dime Away and Sweet Rhapsody along with the title track all help secure this as one of the smoothest Soul albums to ever come out of Motor City.

Between The Sea And The Sky
Imagine coming off the back of a defunct group, with no hits, but who have admittedly just released one of the best pop psych singles in the UK ever, and being thrown into George Martins Air Studios on a publishing/production deal and told there you are boys "make an album".

A slight license with the factual there but essentially this is what happened to Martin Briley and Brian Engel .In 1969, late of Mandrake Paddle Steamer and their classic 'Strange Walking Man', these late teens art students were given access to Air Studios and budgets for orchestras plus musicians to come up with hit singles. What they actually came up with was an almost concept album that exhibited all that had influenced them to that point, and let loose their humour and imagination. Sadly with the exception of one single ('Pale Green Vauxhall Driving Man') released under the name Prowler, a couple of years after the event, the recordings lay on the shelf, and are released for the first time now.

Briley played with GreAenslade and then as session guitarist with the Hunter Ronson band, Meatloaf and Ellen Foley. Three solo albums and a US top 40 hit 'Salt In My Tears' followed. He continues as a songwriter for international artists and backing vocalist.

United We Stand
In the beginning, Tony Hiller created The Brotherhood of Man. Formed in the recording studio and launched into a world at war over Vietnam, peace certainly won the day on vinyl in 1970 with the group‘s top ten single ‘United We Stand’ and accompanying album’s original sleeve notes announcing the groups arrival "with an eloquent and convincing plea to unite”.

The Brotherhood of Man would eventually win a very different war with a very different line-up in Europe at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1976. A different time, place, sound. RPM’s collection, concentrates on their old testament with chief peacemakers Johnny Goodison, Tony Burrows, Roger Greenaway, Hal Atkinson, Russell Stone and the brit girl sisterhood of Sue Glover and Sunny Leslie. Featuring the complete 1970 album now with corresponding non-album Asides and B-sides together with Sue and Sunny’s soulful Deram 45s from the same period. United We Stand unites the best session singers and songwriters of the late sixties and early seventies in total harmony with both their record buying public and the charts of the times.

Face to Face : Expanded Edition
Released 16th January 2012 Few artists transitioned from the Disco era as successfully as Evelyn "Champagne” King. Tagged as a "Disco Diva” having set dance floors ablaze with her Disco smash hit ‘Shame’, Evelyn was then able to transition into being one of the most successful R&B acts of the 1980s.

She achieved this via her hit 1981 album I’m In Love with the single of the same name becoming a US R&B #1 and reaching #27 in the UK Charts. This success was quickly followed up with the 1982 album Get Loose which became a US R&B #1 album as well as being her first UK Top Forty album, The album also spawned the mega-hit Love Come Down.

The 1983 album Face To Face saw Evelyn being teamed with producers Leon Sylvers (fresh from his chart-topping work with Shalamar) and Prince Collaborator Andre Cymone to develop her transition into the increasingly electronic sounds of the 80s. The album also produced three R&B/Dance hit singles - "Action”, "Shake Down” and "Teenager” – which all gained top 30 spots in the US R&B Chart and all appear in remix format on this BBR remaster.
