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.

Flying Again / Airborne
To many people, the mere mention of West Coast country rockers The Flying Burrito Brothers evokes memories of the talismanic Gram Parsons, continuing to live out hisAmerican cosmic music dream. True, Parson’s brief tenure with the band fell in between his even shorter time with The Byrds and his sadly equally short-lived solo career. But as these two Flying Burrito Brothers albums, along with a career that lasted even into the new Millennium, there’s a lot more to the Flying Burritos than Gram Parsons.When Gram Parsons died in September 1973, the legend surrounding his death led to increased interest in his musical legacy. A&M, keen to cashin, released the compilation album Close Up The Honky Tonks in 1974. This in turn prompted band members Ethridge and Kleinow to revive The Flying Burrito Brothers, this time with ex-Byrds guitarist Gene Parsons and country musicians Floyd Gib Guilbeau and Joel Scott Hill. The new-look band signed to Columbia Records, and released Flying Again , the first of these two albums in 1975. It ‘s a perfect example of the way country rock music had developed since The Byrds broke new ground with Sweetheart Of The Rodeo through to the manner in which the likes of the Eagles and Jackson Browne were now beginning to command American airwaves.
