View my wishlist Those were all Ronnie Bakers lines and Ronnie had a great way of playing, he used to play along with Earl's bass drum. He would put his notes on top of the bass drum to get us a fatter sound and with Earl hitting the drum with the fat part of the stick and Ronnie playing his bass lines on top of the bass drum lick, we really had fat fat bass tracks for dancing.
And that was our team. That's what I loved and that's what they gave me. But Ronnie Baker also was a great writer and producer. He produced a couple of tracks for me, he did two songs on the SalSoul Orchestra.
One of them is my favorite - 'Tale of three cities' and 'Get happy'. He also produced Eddie Holman 's 'This would be a night to remember'. Besides producing it he wrote the song, he played on the track, he arranged the strings and horns, he produced and he mixed it.
He was quite a gentleman. They were childhood friends and Norman I think was the only one who knew how to read music in the beginning. Earl didn't even know how to read music when he was playing the drums and he would get his cues from Norman in the studio.
All three of them learned the secret of making a hit record, which was to create a great song with rhythm section. And that's one thing that they always had! When vocals needed to be added to a piece, the Orchestra was fronted by either of the labels greatest voices - Loleatta Holloway or Jocelyn Brown. Loleatta was the Disco diva supreme of the label, both by adding the vocals to the SalSoul Orchestra along with making a name of her own as a solo artist.
Jocelyn lived a little in the shadow of Loleatta, but she had the same powerful and energic voice as Loleatta, even though she never got a solo career on the label. Loleatta added for example her vocals to the SalSoul Orchestra's top tracks "Runaway" and "Seconds"while Jocelyn fronted the band in for example "Take some time out for love" Let's talk about Loleatta Holloway, she's got a fantastic voice She has a powerful voice and knows how to communicate Salsoul Nugget (If U Wanna) - Various - The Best Of Disco Nouveau (CD) her audience, she tells it like it is.
Loleatta and I are still very close and we speak often I remember there was a time when Loleatta was booked to perform at a local club, where the promoter did a poor advertising campaign. We arrived at the club and there were only about fifty people there instead of as promised. I was heartbroken and afraid Loleatta would not perform - but Loleatta gave her show as if there were a thousand people in the audience. I mean, she just had those people going crazy with her great performance.
She was just that kind of performer, if she was paid to do a job she did her best and she had a passion for singing. How does it feel to have been being part of launching artists like them?
I'm just happy to be at the right place at the right time. These are geniuses, Loleatta and Jocelyn, I just spoke to Jocelyn yesterday. She's in London and she's doing quite well. I think she was working with Leroy Burgessanother talented singer and songwriter who did some work for me. Loleatta I speak to several times a month. We've kept in touch all these years.
We're friends and she should have been more popular than she is But it is what it is. But she is truly one of the greatest talents in this business. I just had to ask Ken one of the hardest questions for any label head to answer: If you would choose one song that represents what you think SalSoul should stand for, I know Salsoul Nugget (If U Wanna) - Various - The Best Of Disco Nouveau (CD) an impossible mission, but which song would it be?
I think for instrumentals my favorite song is and will always be 'the Bottle' by Joe Bataan, Salsoul Nugget (If U Wanna) - Various - The Best Of Disco Nouveau (CD), in the sense of power and the sense of fun and good feeling.
And for vocals there were different classifications you know, for raw Funk it was Instant Funk. For smooth Funk there was Skyy with 'Here's to you' and 'High'. But my favorite song I really believe is 'Dr. Love' by First Choice. At first Norman didn't like it, but he grew to really love it. One of them went platinum and other one went gold, I forget which one I think Instant Funk went platinum. And for the albums I believe the SalSoul Christmas album was the most popular ever.
I think we sold over 5 million copies worldwide over the years. It's like an evergreen album I think those were the biggest hits we had. Some of them were great, some of them were mediocre. Because I have been talking to several artists and label owners and they have kept nothing. I have like maybe one or two copies of mostly everything.
Stick to them. I could e-mail it to you. I really would appreciate that! We will e-mail them to you. And 7" we have them, but I don't know how accurate it is. I doubt we got everything on there. I know it's hard to pick one since they're all your babies I think my favorite 12"s are 'My love is free', the 12" that Tom Moulton mixed. I also think the 12" of Inner Life's 'Ain't no mountain high enough' is very good. Love' and 'Love thing'.
Have you got some other favorite Disco tracks, which is not SalSoul related? I would say 'Boogie oogie oogie', I forgot who the girl is I would say The Thriller album was phenomenal. It's definitely a favorite. Which was the relation to the sub-labels? The first one we did was GoldMind with Norman Harris. He was my guitar player, arranger, producer and he was a member of B-H-Y [Baker-Harris-Young] that also played on all the Trammps hits and he produced the Trammps.
Norman was quite an arranger and producer and a songwriter too. So, I thought by giving him his label it would inspire him to do greater work. With the Dream label I really forget how that came about. I think we just wanted to have some additional labels at the time, so that when our promotions men went out to the radio stations they would not be playing too many SalSoul records. Tom'n'Jerry was a Tom Moulton label that I gave for him.
Tom and his brother's name is Jerry, and I think he did it as a take off of the cartoons - Tom'n'Jerry. He also signed some artists and put them on his label. So, that's how we did the sub-labels. We had this First Choice hit song there. If you have your artists and your sound that you are going after, I mean, no one can copy the works that you're doing.
But there were other local labels like SalSoul, I think we were one of the biggest of the local labels. Neil did a tremendous job. He was a great A much better promoter than we were and still we were really happy with what we were doing. We were into the sound that we had, we were into the artists that we had, I loved the musicians that we had.
So I really feel that in terms of competition I just felt that I had popped into some geniuses and I wanted to go along for the ride and try to get as much out of them as I could. It wasn't so much the artists that sang a song that was responsible for a hit record, naturally it did have to have a good sailor but equally and maybe more important you needed a number one good story which came from the writers.
You had to have a good song and once you had the right song you needed the right producer that knew how to make it an up today sound and I think we had the hottest rhythm section of all - these guys from Philadelphia. We also really thought we used the best studio around - Sigma Sound Studios, which really gave us a tremendous clear sound on our tracks. But basically we just tried to do the best that we could and we had a lot of fun along the way.
It seems like you were the more creative one We all had different talents You know, if you are interested in something, you'll be good at it. Stanley ran the financials and Joe handled licensing and relations. We didn't want to get too big. We had our distribution deal with RCA, so that took off a big responsibility off us. S Moonboots O. P MFSB feat.
Click here! We're now reaching the early 80's and the "Death of Disco" has already set several labels into bankruptcy. Disco has become something ugly and no one wants to be caught buying it, while people are still enjoying it in the clubs.
But in the three brothers decide the SalSoul saga needs to end So, What happened in ? So what's the story? What actually happened? I got married in and at the time I got married I think Skyy had their big hit with us - 'Call me'.
We were riding over a nice crest, but there were factors creeping in that was going to make it harder and harder for us. We had most of the field to ourselves in those years, but I guess because we were doing so well - making a lot of attention and a lot of noise worldwide - the majors started beefing up their dollars towards dance music and they were putting on big staffs, they were going for big artists We didn't have the mix that we had in the marketplace and another factor that was creeping in was the sound was changing a little bit.
It was becoming more Funk and more R'n'B. We kind of changed with that a little bit by signing Aurrawhich I believe is one of the best Funk groups around, and Skyy. Then the eighties started creeping in the Funk and the Rap started creeping in, no very popular but it was creeping in and I was getting married and I no longer had the desire to spend as many late hours that the record company needed every night.
And in or I believe, there was an opportunity for us to go into the video business So we found this golden opportunity to go into the video business.
They also released their own animated versions of children's classics like Snow White and Aladdin, this led to a Disney ten million dollar lawsuit - which the brothers won. Ken continues; "So what we did is that we just started to cutting back less on recording because we were not getting the results we were used to get.
We had our distribution deal with RCA internationally, contrary to what rumors are we never did sell the label. We always had just a distribution deal with RCA around the world, a licensing deal and a distribution deal in the US.
But we stopped recording I believe aroundwe were inactive recording, but we were still active licensing. Then we started putting our efforts into the video business. We retained Glenn LaRusso for international sales and Tom Moulton to manage our library and do our remixing and releases domestically. And I think from to aroundsomething like that, we did not release any new records domestically, only re-releases. But somewhere in the mid 90's we started to re-release the records in the US.
Double J was my nephew, my brother Joe's son - Jack. Jack was interested in the music business and at that time had a concept to take some of our old songs and give it to some really good mixers and do some remixing and that what's started Double J.
And Jack did a pretty good job, I wasn't really on top of what he was at, I just gave him permission to use the tracks and I think he did pretty well. He remixed about 10 or 12 tracks and then we incorporated it back into the SalSoul label. That's the only real new re-recording we've done since and we started taking some of these top mixers, like we took GrandMaster Flash and let him re-edit and make a LP and I think he did a tremendous job.
I listen to his record every day almost when I exercise. You asked me earlier if I still listen to SalSoul - I do! Another favorite instrumental was 'Tear Salsoul Nugget (If U Wanna) - Various - The Best Of Disco Nouveau (CD) s' with Ron Baker.
Great song! This raised the demand for software and computer games. In GT Interactive was introduced on the Stock Exchange and in the company was sold to the computer software company Atari. After being active in many different branches, what are you and your brothers up to today?
We run that for 20 years. During that time we manufactured and sold over million [!!! In we branched into an infomercial business - Good Times Entertainment - and sold products on TV directly to Salsoul Nugget (If U Wanna) - Various - The Best Of Disco Nouveau (CD) consumer.
We had Richard Simmons with his diet exercise systems. All digitally remastered, compiled and produced by Tom Moulton. Else the brothers are no longer in business together as they used to. They still own SalSoul, Bethlehem and some real estate investments together, but now all three of them are running businesses with their kids - trying to pass on the basics of selling as their father once taught them.
Ken and Stan are both in ladies and children's wear and Joe in real estate development. This brings us 'till today - at this time it seems SalSoul is as popular as ever. So, I asked Ken SalSoul tracks are still VERY popular today all around the world and many of them are really timeless masterpieces, how does that make you feel today?
What's exciting about those is that some even have previously unreleased mixes. Have you still got lots of unreleased mixes and other material laying around? Tom Moulton is now working on them. There are a few unreleased versions out there, but not many. It's a jam packed record with Larry's SalSoul high-lights and it also include several commercially unreleased remixes by acts like Instant Funk, Bunny Sigler and Sparkle.
But you'll also find the classic Garage version of "Ain't no mountain high enough" by Inner Life feat. For full track listing, check it out in the right hand column above. I think almost every SalSoul song have been sampled and several have been sampled over and over again Like; Loleatta Holloway's "Love Sensation".
It's a great song so I understand people want to sample that, but how does it make you feel and what do you think of sampling and the re-use of these classics? It recognizes the past and uses it in the future. It gives recognition to the artists as talents. Loleatta, I think her greatest talent besides singing was her feel for the song. She used to make up a lot of the lyrics after the structure was over.
You know, after the first 3 minutes and that's what's really gotten sampled on Loleatta. You know, her impulse Ad Libs and it's just a tribute to the artist because she has such a strong feeling for the work that she's singing. She's able to come up with these lines that are interesting and she delivers them with such feeling that they're too good to use just one time. People hear them and say 'Hey, I could use this in this song, I could put it this way.
I'll just take these 4 words So, I think it's a tribute to the artist and the whole recording time that we did at those 10 years. You know, there's a realism to HipHop. And that's why I think it has been widely accepted. It's more like reality TV. It's not just telling a story of a song, they're talking about their life experiences and it's very real and there is a need for that.
The big difference I find is not so much in the lyrics or the way it's done. The big difference I find today is the sound - it's more electronic. You know, at the time when I was recording in the 70's and 80's we didn't have a drum-machine, we didn't have as much synthesizers I mean, we had synthesizers but not like they have today.
We took a live rhythm section into the studio. We took a drummer, a bass player, two guitar players, two keyboard players, congas, a percussion player and these poor guys had to play that song for 7 minutes long. The drummers speeded up after a while and they had to do a punch-in or had to do it again.
Nowadays they go into the studio they do not tape It's all done at home with a drum-machine. It's good, but Salsoul Nugget (If U Wanna) - Various - The Best Of Disco Nouveau (CD) not the same sound.
You don't get the same excitement. You don't get the same feel. You can not duplicate that, that's the difference to me in the sound today than in the classic recordings. I've been to a lot of weddings and parties now, and I notice that when it comes to dancing - to get the crowd on the floor - a lot of times they're playing music that's 10, 20 and even 30 years old rather than some of today's hits to get the people to dance.
That's interesting! I think it shows that there's still room and interest for the classic songs. They really had a longer life back then, probably because everything you just mentioned.
Right now [late March ] I listen to OutCast. One of my favorite new songs by the way, it sounds a little bit of a Beatles song, is 'Where is the love? I'm not familiar with the artist though. But it's a great song. It's the Black Eyed Peas. And that's the kind of music that I like. Anything sensuous, anything real, anything with a good sound, anything with a good fat groove. That's what I'm into. It's a big fat groove of the bottom The girl's name is Ellen Michaels and she's the girl in the legendary "Dance your ass off I get so many many requests from people who wants to buy one of these SalSoul "Dance your ass off Are there any plans to make them again?
Now that we've sold our business, I'm in the fashion apparel business. I have just signed a license for Von DutchI don't know if you're familiar with it, but it's a fashion brand and we just signed the license for children's, for all their clothing and apparel.
So we are going to put out some SalSoul apparel! I have talked to some retailers now and we're pretty excited about it and we do wanna pay tribute to Ellen Michaels who was the model on the SalSoul T-shirt shot that was seen and heard about around the world. That was another pleasant surprise, when we did that We always wanted to be an edgy brand, an edgy label. When we started out that was our concept - to be on the edge.
To be, you know, sensuous and sexy but not vulgar. When we asked Ellen Michaels to model that T-shirt the idea was 'They were dancing their asses off at the clubs' and we made that our motto and the out concept was to shoot a girl in the T-shirt with no panties on her ass and somehow doing it a way that it wasn't vulgar. We did the shot and it worked and It ended up on matchbooks, playing cards, posters, pictures in Japan to Germany, France, Italy, South America, I mean - it was just a phenomenon.
And we were very happy about that. I guess you must have liked it as you were one of the first on the train As I told you, I used to go to the clubs and right about that time in the early 70's, somehow I guess the technologies for manufacturing bigger space speakers, better quality sound and better midrange speakers, better tweeters, these lights that were somehow synchronized to the music and putting that all together in a dark room and playing some good music that was recorded pretty well - it was something that we never we never heard before.
We never experienced it. It was just an out of this world experience. It kind of gets to you, it's like a magnet which kept drawing you back. Today we take it for granted because it's been around for 30 years, but at that time it was something new, something exciting and you know Studio 54 opened up right about that time, so there was a show business aspect to it. Clubs started opening up, some good some bad, but the sound was the thing and 'Dancing your ass off' was another thing.
You know, it was non-stop dancing and no one before had ever played a record without stopping and going into the next record. So it was a new phenomenon, it works, the concept works and I think it's still popular today. The music has changed but the club concept is popular, the non-stop music with lights and sound effects.
And you know, as young people Bunny was a singer and producer for me. In fact, Bunny Sigler was gracious enough to come with me I had a driver for over 40 years, he passed away last year and Bunny flew down with me to Miami to sing at his funeral, the Lords prayer. He just was tremendous and everybody there was breath taken, a breathtaking experience.
Loleatta and I are still very close. Thanks again Claes.
