“The man, the myth, the legend, Rudy Ray Moore, without him there would be no rap community.” ~Snoop Dogg

Rudy Ray Moore has been sampled by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eazy-E, Eric B. and Rakim, Ice-T, Big Daddy Kane, 2 Live Crew, ODB, and dozens of others platinum selling rap artists. Hailed as the king of the party record and the world’s greatest X-rated stand up comedian, Moore is back with the first CD release of his 1972 classic, “Dolemite For President,” which contains additional previously unreleased sketch comedy from various live Moore performances.

Rudy Ray Moore attained cult status as a pioneer of racy inner city and ghetto humor. He has inspired three generations of comics and a whole new generation of rap practitioners. From the late 60’s through today, his “party records” have become classics to many nightclub goers and music buyers. Moore in the 1970’s also made his mark in the film world. During the “Blaxploitation” movie era, he produced and starred in seven films as “Human Tornado,” “Monkey Hustle,” “Petey Wheatstraw,” “Disco Godfather,” “Penitentiary,” “Rude,” and most notably, “Dolemite,” which became an instant inner city classic.

In the five years since Toronto-based guitar slinger Sean Kelly recorded the first Crash kelly song in his modest home studio, he has exploded from down and dirty clubs to arenas, amphitheaters, and other major venues in North America and Europe. Kelly is currently promoting the release of his much anticipated third CD entitled, “One More Heart Attack.”

To bring his latest musical vision to fruition, Sean has assembled what he considers to be the best Crash Kelly line-up to date. Long time band mate, Allister Thompson on bass, Gene Scarpelli on guitar, and Tim Timlech on drums all contribute stellar performances both on stage and recorded on “One More Heart Attack.” The CD also features Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne/Quiet Riot/Whitesnake), Brian Tichy (Foreigner/Billy Idol), as well as songwriting contributions from Pursuit of Happiness’ main-man Moe Berg.

Saints Of The Underground was formed by Keri Kelli and Bobby Blotzer, and then they recruited Jani Lane and Robbie Crane. It started out as a group to play covers and have some fun during off time from their respective bands. The chemistry amongst them was so good that it just evolved into what we hear on this recording.

“MAYDAY” – The CD contains over 70 minutes of hot R&B!!!

Customer Reviews:

“Troop never got the props they deserved if you never heard this cd don’t sleep on it. This cd did not get much radio pla,y but just because they don’t play it on the radio does not mean it’s not a good cd. i play mayday allday.” ~ L. Green (Kansas City)

“I love every song on this cd and the interludes tell a great story. The harmonies are tight too! Troop did this whole album themselves and did it their way. You all need to check it out. I also want to say that the guys are back and are still sounding great! Meanwhile, definately get Mayday. You won’t be disappointed! I miss this kind of music.” ~ R. Lamb (San Diego)

“Troop you are my babies… all of your albums are the bomb. I’m missing you very much. Please come back, we need you out here in the R&B game.” ~ Tasha (Detroit)

“This has to be one of the most under-rated groups in R&B history. It seems as if this is Troop’s last album as a group, and it’s a shame. Even though Troop’s lead singers’ voices have somewhat diminished, this group still put it down – far more better than most of these other, less equipped but somehow, more popular groups. The slows jams are the bomb. And there first release, an up-tempo, ‘The Way I parlay’ is hot.” ~ Ronda (Cleveland)

“Great album…it’s one of those that you can love to listen to all the way through…Troop still has it!!” ~ Michelle Perez

about TROOP

In 1998, a group of five childhood friends crafted a hit that would become not only a long-lived Billboard Hot R&B Single, but also one of the most added R&B songs in the nation. The success of “The Way I Parlay,” from the Billboard Top 100 R&B Album, “Mayday“, was incredible considering Troop had the pressure of creating another hit album after three gold records, one platinum album, and a very long six year hiatus. As “Mayday” has not been available to the public, Warrior Records is pleased to announce the re-release of the album complete with 24 bit digital re-mastering and bonus tracks by Troop’s original five memebers; Lil’ Steve, Allen, Jon Jon, Rodney, and Reggie.

Apart from some of the production and some wear on his voice, Let’s Hear It for Love could easily be mistaken for an album Benny Mardones released in 1986 instead of one from 2006. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, mind you: Mardones’ success was built on “Into the Night,” a moody soft rock single so good it was a hit twice in one decade, and his strength lies within the arena rockers and power ballads that make up this 12-song album. As the title gently suggests, this record is heavy on love songs, meaning that there are a lot of slow-crawling sentimental tunes that are nevertheless driven by big, cavernous drums straight out of the mid-’80s — and when there’s a change of pace, as there is on the grinding, slightly sinister-sounding Seger-esque rocker “Innocent Girl” or the surging Eddie Money duet “Let’s Hear It for Love,” it also sounds like a throwback to ’80s album rock. When Mardones has the melodies — as he does on the rockers and on the smooth “How Could I Love You More” and the relatively sprightly “Could We Fall in Love Again” — this is enjoyable stuff for anybody who has a taste for either Mardones or the softer mainstream pop of the ’80s.

Lareau (pronounced “Lah-row”), completed the recording “Change My World” with producers Darrin Payne and Anthony Brown at All Sound Studios in Warren, PA. Reid Shippen a 3X Grammy Winner was brought in to do the final mix on the cut. Mixes were conducted at Soundstage Studios in Nashville where Shippen has worked with such notables as Jonny Lang, India Arie, Backstreet Boys, and Third Day to name a few. His latest Grammy was presented for Jonny Lang’s “Turn Around” Album.

Lareau’s “Changes” debut (Warrior) has charted on three major Adult Contemporary charts: FMQB (#10), Billboard (#25) and R&R (#25). Their follow up single, “Change My World,” also charted on Billboard (#28) and R&R (#28) respectively. Chuck Taylor, reviewing for Billboard, wrote of the albums “organic play-off of electric and acoustic guitars, bongos and buoyant sing-along hooks,” referring to lead singer Larry Lareau as a frontman, “definitely stamped with nostalgic influences.” The review concluded noting that, “It’s a pleasure to see hard-working talent rise to the surface.”

Lareau—founding member and lead vocalist Larry Lareau, drummer/multi-instrumentalist Darrin Payne, guitarist Pete Gool, bassist Roger Christopherson and keyboardist Anthony Brown—is the five-piece band from Western New York and Pennsylvania whose music is a refreshing and uplifting acoustic/electric trip that has had record buyers swooning to its intricate musical interplay.

about Kyle Lardner

Nassau County native Kyle Lardner has released Sail Among The Stars, and given the quality of this fine new pop album, she’ll be doing exactly that before long. In an area rife with loud rock bands that seemingly are stuck in a time warp, Lardner’s fresh singer-songwriter style is just what the region needs. Only 20, the stunningly sexy Lardner is a gifted, classically trained pianist and fine vocalist, and despite her scant years is the kind of fully developed songwriter that only comes along a few times in a generation. If that sounds like hype, take a listen to songs such as “Moral Amnesia” or “Costa Rica” on her debut CD produced by Alan Scott Plotkin, available nationally on September 25. Lardner’s thoughtful, often romantic lyrics merge with her natural pop sensibilities to create a pleasing and entertaining mural mix. Add her natural charisma and movie star looks to the package, and Lardner is likely to be on of the most talked-about artists in the region during the next few years.
