    Biography

    The Meters are an American funk band formed in 1965 by Zigaboo Modeliste (drums), George Porter Jr. (bass), Leo Nocentelli (guitar) and Art Neville (keyboards) in New Orleans, LA. The band performed and recorded their own music from the late 1960s until 1977 and played an influential role as backing musicians for other artists, including Lee Dorsey, Robert Palmer, Dr. John and Allen Toussaint. Their original compositions, “Cissy Strut,” and “Look-Ka Py Py” are considered funk classics. While they never enjoyed significant mainstream success, they are considered originators of funk along with artists like James Brown and their work is influential on many other bands, both their contemporaries and modern musicians. The band has been nominated four times for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, most recently in 2017. In 2018, they were presented the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The Meters became the house band for Toussaint and his record label, Sansu Enterprises. In 1969 they released “Sophisticated Cissy,” and “Cissy Strut,” both major R&B chart hits. “Look-Ka Py Py” and “Chicken Strut” were their hits in 1970. In 1975 Paul McCartney invited the band to play at the release party for his Venus and Mars album aboard the Queen Mary ship in Long Beach, CA. Mick Jagger was in attendance and became a huge fan of their sound. The Rolling Stones invited the Meters to open for them on their Tour of the Americas 1975 and Tour of Europe 76 expeditions. After the Neville’s departed in 1977, David Batiste Sr. took over keyboard duties and Willie West joined as the new lead singer. Porter left the group in 1978 and by 1980 The Meters had officially broken up. Rejuvenation is the band’s fifth studio album and second for Reprise Records, originally released in 1974. In 2003, the album was ranked number 138 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time and was given 4 ½ stars by both Rolling Stone and All Music Guide. The album was produced by Allen Toussaint and recorded at his Sea-Saint Studios in New Orleans. Toussaint handled many of the horn arrangements on the record. The album’s influence is detectable in the work of a number of artists including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Public Enemy, Chris Duarte, Grateful Dead, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Widespread Panic. If voted to win, ROG will reissue this funk classic by cutting lacquers from the original analog tapes and half speed mastering the release. Then the LP will get the deluxe packaging treatment and be limited and numbered based on orders.

    Biography

    Salvatore “Sonny” Bono was an American singer-songwriter, producer, actor and politician who became famous in partnership with his second wife, Cher as the popular singing duo, Sonny & Cher. Bono began his career as a songwriter at Specialty Records, where his song, “Things You Do To Me,” was recorded by Sam Cooke, and went on to work for record producer Phil Spector in the early 1960s as a promo man, percussionist and “gofer.” Later in the 1960s he began to achieve commercial success in the singing duo, Sonny & Cher. He wrote, arranged and produced a number of hit records including the singles, “I Got You Babe” and “The Beat Goes On.” He played a major part in Cher’s solo recording career, writing and producing singles including “Bang Bang” and “You Better Sit Down Kids.” Bono co-wrote “She Said Yeah,” covered by the Rolling Stones on their 1965 album, “December’s Children.” His lone hit single as a solo artist, “Laugh At Me,” was issued in 1965 and peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. His only other single as a solo artist, “The Revolution Kind,” reached #70 on the Billboard Hot 100 a year later. He issued his solo album, “Inner Views” on Atco Records in 1967 and it was the only album he released as a solo artist. Unlike Cher, Bono’s attempt as a solo artist was unsuccessful. Cher had released three successful albums when Inner Views was dropped. Inner Views was featured in a one page ad in the very first Rolling Stone magazine on November 9, 1967. Despite the lack of attention, All Music Guide gave it 4 out of 5 stars. If voted to win, ROG will reissue this piece of lost Sonny Bono history for the first time on vinyl since original release in over 50 years! In addition, a bonus LP of rarities originally included on 1999 Rhino Handmade deluxe CD edition of the album will also be featured on this proposed 2LP set.

    Biography

    Cherilyn Sarkisian, known by her stage name of CHER is commonly referred to as the Goddess of Pop and is easily one of the most iconic female artists and performers of all time. She is known for her distinctive contralto voice, for working in numerous areas of entertainment and for adopting a variety of styles during her six-decade-long career. Cher originally gained fame in 1965 as one-half of the folk rock husband-wife duo of Sonny & Cher after the smash hit, “I Got You Babe,” reached number one on the American and British charts. In less than two years they had sold 40 million records worldwide and had become rock’s “it” couple. She began her solo career releasing her first million-selling song, “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) in 1966, became a TV personality in the 1970s with The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour which was watched by 30 million viewers weekly and emerged as a fashion trendsetter by wearing elaborate outfits on television. While working in TV, Cher established herself as a solo artist with the US Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singles, “Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves,” “Half-Breed,” and “Dark Lady.” She won critical acclaim for her acting performances in films such as Silkwood (1983), Mask (1985) and Moonstruck (1987), for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. In 1998 with her album “Believe” she reached a new commercial peak when the title track became the biggest-selling single of all time by a female artist in the UK. Her 2002-2005 Living Proof Farewell Tour was one of the highest grossing concert tours of all time. She has won a Grammy, an Emmy, an Academy Award, three Golden Globe Award, a Cannes Film Festival Award, among many other honors. She has sold 100 million records worldwide to date, becoming one of the best-selling music artists in history. 3614 Jackson Highway is the sixth studio album by Cher and was originally released on June 20, 1969 by Atco Records, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records. At the time of release, the album was a commercial failure, peaking at only #160 although it received praise and positive reviews from music critics at the time based on Cher’s maturing vocals along with the sophisticated instrumentation and arrangements. The album remains Cher’s first and last solo studio album from Atco and was produced by Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd and Arif Mardin. The cover art is a photo of Cher with the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section of musicians that are featured on the album. The album was conceived as a way to bring success to Cher and Sonny & Cher, after a two-year period of commercial failure as the formulaic nature of the duo’s musical endeavors were rendered obsolete as pop music evolved in the later 1960s. In 1968 and 69 Cher recorded songs for an album with a tentative release in 1970. For unknown reasons the album was cancelled and five of the tracks were issued as singles. The remaining tracks went unreleased until Rhino issued a limited edition CD of the album with including the mono tracks as bonus. If voted to win, ROG will reissue 3614 Jackson Highway on vinyl for the first time since original release and expand it to include the entire 1970 unreleased mono album/singles that would be making their debut on vinyl as a collected effort for the first time.
