I think we’ve said it before, but we have no hesitation in saying it again – Pleasure are one of the finest bands to come out of the world of mid-70s R&B. As such it is an honour for us to be working our way through their catalogue as part of BGP’s Funk & Jazz Classics Series. This time our journey has reached the group’s fourth album for the Fantasy label, “Get To The Feeling”. This should have been the LP where they crossed-over and made them famous with similar chart success to that of their fellow jazz-influenced funk outfits such as the Blackbyrds and perhaps even more relevantly, Earth Wind & Fire.
"Can't Fight the Midnight" is the debut and only solo album by American singer Jimmy Harnen, lead singer of the band Synch, which was released in 1989. It contains the hit power ballad, "Where Are You Now".
“Love Changes – The Anthology, 1972-83,” a first-of-its-kind 2-CD set by Mother’s Finest, considered the premier black rock-and-soul band of the ‘70s and ‘80s. This 37-track collection includes the entire 10-track 1983 LP, “One Mother To Another,” only ever released in Europe and making its worldwide CD debut. In addition, six tracks that were recorded for the group’s first RCA LP (in 1972) and only issued on a now out-of-print US CD in 2010 are also included here along with the team’s four charted singles, recorded for Epic Records during their seven-year tenure with the label, other standouts such as ‘Somebody To Love,’ (produced by Jimmy Iovine) along with ‘U Turn Me On’ and ‘Evolution’ from the 1981 LP, “Iron Age” and key cuts from the group’s three Epic studio albums such as ‘Give You All The Love (Inside Of Me)’ and a cover of the Motown classic, ‘Mickey’s Monkey.’
