• “Hot, black, and sweet — Bryant, Hester, and Sims.” That’s how founder Elaine Sims described Coffee during a December 2008 interview. The group brought their potent blend of disco and soul to the world on Slippin’ and Dippin’ with its irresistible smooth and funky grooves in 1980.

• The trio recorded I Wanna Be With You (1979) for Midwest International Records. Before long, De-Lite Records, flush with success from Kool & the Gang’s platinum-selling Ladies Night (1979), signed the group and issued the album.

• De-Lite issued 45’s of both Slip and Dip and Mom and Dad 1980, a tale about teenage pregnancy that had originally been a hit for the Lovelites in 1969.

• However, Coffee’s defining moment came with Casanova. The song had reached the R&B Top 10 in 1967 for Ruby Andrews. UK audiences pushed the song to #13 on a 10-week run while the double A-Side Slip and Dip/I Wanna Be With You followed, peaking at #57 towards the end of 1980.

• BBR is thrilled to present this first ever CD edition of SLIPPIN’ AND DIPPIN’ in an expanded and remastered edition in a deluxe super jewel case with quotes from ELAINE SIMS as well as five bonus tracks.
