Twelve Inches Of Pleasure - BBE Singles Part One
"A long time ago BBE Records released twelve inch records, in those days London's Soho offered the record buyer a feast of vinyl; specialist stores proliferated, turntables took over from the guitar as every schoolboy dreamed to be the next 'Superstar' DJ. The music press was astounded at the survival of the 12" record, despite the major's attempt to quash it. In to this 'mix' BBE rose, releasing obscure funk records, and A Bollywood Funk album, as well as kick starting the whole DJ driven compilation genre with its Stop & Listen series. Fast forward to the now, sadly many of the Soho vinyl institutions have gone (R.I.P- 'Catch A Groove', 'Mr Bongo', 'Atlas', 'Quaff Records' the first 'Deal Real' & 'Major Flavours'), we hope that this album will memorialize a small part of that special dance music history."
