Description

A hugely successful, award-winning songwriter, singer and musician, BA ROBERTSON enjoyed his most commercially successful period while signed to Asylum Records in the late 70s and early 80s. During that period, BA was rarely out of the charts with hit singles including Bang Bang, Knocked It Off, Kool In The Kaftan, To Be Or Not To Be and, with Maggie Bell, Hold Me. Amazingly, BAs Asylum recordings have never officially been reissued on CD until now! Compiled by the artist himself with remastered sound, new sleeve-notes by Eddie Harrison and each reissue boasting numerous bonus tracks, BAs Asylum albums have finally been treated to the reissue programme they deserve. INITIAL SUCCESS was the first of BAs albums for Asylum. First issued in 1980, it was promoted by the hit singles Bang Bang (No. 2), Knocked It Off (No. 8), To Be Or Not To Be (No. 9) and Kool In The Kaftan (No. 17), all of which helped propel the album to No. 32 on the UK charts. Among the wealth of bonus tracks are three non-LP flipsides, a unique interpretation of Bang Bang by the Portsmouth Sinfonia and three recordings captured at a rare live performance by BA at Edinburgh Festival in 2004
