Be With has worked with original label KPM to re-issue ten albums from across the KPM 1000 Series and the Themes International Music catalog, currently under KPM stewardship. Whether it's killer soul-funk, sweet jazz-samba, scuzzed-up guitars or accidental Balearic beauty, these records include some of the most innovative work from some of the most talented composers and musicians of the 20th century. These records were never readily available, being originally released as a ready-made, affordable alternative to commissioning music for television and radio. Consequentially the originals have been unobtainable for decades by all but the most dedicated collectors. The audio comes from the original analog tapes and has been remastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis. The same care has been taken with the sleeves, handing the reproduction duties over to Richard Robinson, the current custodian of KPM's brand identity. And don't worry! Those KPM stickers aren't stuck directly on the sleeves! This is classic work from Alan Parker, Alan Hawkshaw, Brian Bennett, Nick Ingman, James Clarke, Francis Coppieters, Keith Mansfield, David Snell, and John Fiddy.

Be With Records presents a reissue of Keith Mansfield and John Cameron's Voices In Harmony, originally issued in 1973. Voices In Harmony was released in 1973 as "a selection of contemporary pop titles featuring voices, brass and rhythm." This collection of works by Mansfield and Cameron can also be described as "a string-laced, harmony-drenched KPM classic". From the bright, lilting harmonies of "Liquid Sunshine" to the melting flutes of "Loving Touch" and "Gentle Persuasion", this is warm, effervescent soul music for dreamy, idyllic moods. The supreme "Husky Birdsong" is so, so smooth, with its unrelenting bossa bassline and warm keyboards. "Half Forgotten Daydreams" is a gorgeous wordless groove. As with all ten re-issues, the audio for Voices In Harmony comes from the original analog tapes and has been remastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis. The same care has been taken with the sleeves, with carefully reproduced original art in handing the reproduction duties over to Richard Robinson. 180 gram vinyl.
