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. R&BA was the third and final BA album for Asylum. First issued in 1982, it spawned a hit collaboration with fellow Scot Maggie Bell, Hold Me, alongside two further singles, Dot Dot Dot and Ready Or Not. Among the wealth of bonus tracks are three non-album B-sides, a demo for BAs theme tune for TV show Saturday Superstore, a demo for the album highlight Legislate For Love, a rare German version of BAs first hit Bang Bang and two tracks from a rare live performance by BA at Edinburgh Festival in 2004.
