PRESS RELEASE

Backbeats is a brand new series from Harmless which launches our 15th birthday celebrations in 2010 with 10 brand new releases of the highest quality @ a super-competitive price!
Culled from the wealth of the Demon Music Group controlled catalogues, the Backbeats repertoire comes from the best collection of independent labels in the world including Hi, Cream, Philadelphia International, Sleeping Bag, Fresh, Streetwise, Idlers, Warlock, Easy Street, Sam, Chi-Sound, Trax, Philly Groove, Jewel, Paula, Ronn, Ace, Tribe, Invictus, Hot Wax, Music Merchant, Amazon and numerous other catalogues which have shaped the history of Black Music and Dance Culture over the years.
The Backbeats series will be released at regular intervals and will utilise the talents of some of the best compilers in the world and experts in their respective areas. In this age of illegal downloading, file swapping and music stores closing we intend to make a stand for the beauty of the lovingly compiled compilation format at an unbeatable price. This is music to value forever at a price which makes perfect sense in the present market.

The first 10 albums in the Backbeats series have been designed by veteran compiler Ian Dewhirst perhaps best known for the ground-breaking Mastercuts series in the early 90s a series which redefined the landscape of the compilation market.
Backbeats has been designed to offer some of the best music in the world from some of the greatest independent labels over the last 50 years. Backbeats will also utilise the talents of a wide range of compilers across different genres of Black/Dance music throughout future volumes. We will only use the full original 12" or album versions from the original artists, plus, with over 75 minutes of music on each Backbeats album, you can be assured of getting maximum musical value for relatively minimal outlay.
As an introductory gift to everyone it gives us great pleasure to offer a free download of one of the greatest tracks ever laid to tape the magnificent Paris with the beautiful "I Choose You". Little did vocalist Paris Holley realise that when he recorded the original demo session for "I Choose You" in 1984 that veteran Chicago producer Carl Davis would be so impressed that he immediately decided to issue it on his own Kelli-Arts label as it was, demo or not! However, back then, no one realised it would be heralded as one of the all-time greatest Soul love songs by a worldwide legion of fans some 25 years later!
We couldn't think of a better gift to launch the series!
Enjoy!
