RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2013 .
KOOL & THE GANG need no introduction. They were the top selling Soul group of the 70’s and 80’s having sold over 70 million albums worldwide and have received countless awards. Without them we would not have such great hits as ‘Summer Madness’, ‘Get Down On It’, ‘Celebration’ and who could forget that slammin’ funk monster that features so heavily in Quentin Tarantino’s cult flick – Pulp Fiction; ‘Jungle Boogie’.
1979 would see Kool & The Gang release LADIES’ NIGHT, their 13th studio album. LADIES’ NIGHT was a departure from the group’s edgier Funk sound that had brought them plenty of success throughout the 1970’s. The decision was made to bring in the Grammy Award winning Brazilian musician Eumir Deodato as producer, which heralded a smoother and more pop focused era for Kool & The Gang and strengthened their grip on both the R&B and Pop charts on both sides of the Atlantic.
LADIES’ NIGHT, with its combination of pure, straight ahead dance cuts and down tempo soul pop helped Kool & The Gang strike a new chord with the music buying public and quickly hit the top of the U.S. R&B album chart as a result. The album also easily crossed over and peaked at #13 on the Pop chart.
Singles featured on LADIES’ NIGHT include the title track, which rocketed to #1 on the U.S. R&B chart while gaining top ten spots on both the U.S. and U.K. Pop charts. ‘Too Hot’ followed suit, landing at #3 R&B, #5 U.S. Pop and #23 in the U.K. singles chart. While not as successful as the previous two singles ‘Hangin’ Out’ still gained a very respectable chart position slowing at #36 on the U.S. R&B and #52 on the U.K. chart.
BBR is proud to present LADIES’ NIGHT. This fully expanded and remastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes, with interviews, and added bonus material.
