Platinum Hook - Platinum Hook.


• PLATINUM HOOK was a slick R&B/Funk combo who released three albums on Motown between 1978 and 1983. Having signed to the label for their debut eponymous release in 1978, PLATINUM HOOK offered up a smooth and engaging R&B/Funk sound that more than matched their label mates and other rivals of the time.

• Produced by keyboardist, songwriter and arranger Greg Wright, a mainstay of the Motown organization through the 70's having worked with Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Thelma Houston, Switch and Jermaine Jackson, PLATINUM HOOK's debut is an album of great depth and variety proving that the polished and professional studio tricks of the time still left room for plenty of grit.

• PLATINUM HOOK opens with the tight club groove ‘Bittersweet,’ a horn and synth led track that introduces the groups lead vocalists Tina Renee Stanford and Stephen Daniels to blistering effect. Track 2 is an excellent cover of Shotgun's mid-tempo funk jam from the previous year, “Hotline.” ‘'Til I Met You’ and ‘Lover What You've Done (To Me)’ are both smooth soul ballads that still bring the funk into the rhythms and help round out the albums overall sound. ‘Standing On The Verge (Of Getting It On),’ a cover of the Funkadelic classic, can hold its head up high to the original. Both ‘Hooked For Life’ and ‘Gotta Find A Woman’ are soulful mid-tempo grooves with an emphasis on the slick harmonies. Closing track ‘City Life’ is a full on high-tempo Disco/Soul number leaving you breathless, but gasping for more.

• BBR is very proud to present PLATINUM HOOK, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. Essential listening for all R&B, Soul, Funk and Disco fans.
