Editorial Reviews

First time ever on CD for Peter Browns 1984 album Snap - Expanded with 6 bonus tracks, remastered from the original tapes. A native of the Windy City suburb of Blue Island, Brown was born on July 11, 1953 and was the first artist to have a million selling 12 inch single with Do You Wanna Get Funky With Me in 1977. A marvel of home recording -the track was recorded in Brown s bedroom on 4-Track and originally intended as a demo - the exhilarating 9 plus minutes of Do You Wanna Get Funky can still pack dance floors to this day and despite its release on the disco oriented TK subsidiary Drive, neither it nor its dub-reggae influenced b-side Burning Love Breakdown were typical disco fare. Brown followed his initial success with a short string of disco classics like Dance With Me - from his debut Fantasy Love Affair album) and his sophomore release, 1978s Stargazer before TKs bankruptcy and legal troubles stalled his career in 1980. Resurfacing with the synth-pop flavored Back To The Front on the RCA label in 1983 put Brown back on the charts with the disco hit Baby Gets High, yet the album wasn t a commercial success in the troubled mainstream musical climate of the early 1980s - which forsook the adventurous sounds of the previous decade in favor of so-called corporate rock. His finest hour and a reel to reel triumph of nine lethargy-curing dance floor scorchers that seamlessly fuse pop, soul and electro sounds, Snap would prove to be Brown s only release on the Columbia label in 1984 and fittingly is his last offering to date

The release of this album on CD with its classic club hit They Only Come Out At Night now gives serious audiophiles an opportunity to finish their Peter Brown collections. I bought the disc for the three versions of They Only Come Out At Night but I'm so impressed with several other tracks that I've added them to my lossless digital playlists. Pop music fans who didn't get out to the clubs in the '80s missed some terrific music and I'm happy I now have a chance to relive some of those good times with fantastic Dance songs.

"They Only Come Out At Night" sounds fantastic & not only do we get the lp version but The full 12inch single is also included, with the b side (Instrumental). Love is Just a Game (Trivial Pursuit) is my favorite and again we get the full 12" also with instrumental. The rest of the cd is just simple pop. Thanks funkytown grooves for giving us dance fans the 12 inch version with the b side included. Only thing missing is the artwork for the 12 inch single.

Every song on Mr Browns SNAP is so catchy & tuneful - not to mention the awesome arrangements !!! Today's dance music is so crass & unmusical - this album makes u wanna hit the dance floor or sing along with melodies that stick in your head!!!!
Five stars!

Peter Brown is a genius and I love that this album has been released on CD! His career should have been much more successful than it was.

Already having this on cassette tape (remember those?) I was only too happy to see it at a nice reasonable price here on Amazon. I give the album 5 stars as I always loved Peter Brown's use of guitars and soulful singing which separated him from the umpteen synthesizer based disco/club music of his era. The so-called "remaster" job must have been done by a deaf person because there is no noticeable uptick in volume or clarity on this over my cassette tape. In fact the cassette sounds more robust. If you're buying for the re-mastering save your money, if you're buying because it's Peter Brown then you'll be happy enough.
