In Love’s Time: The Delegation Story 1976-1983

FIRST 2CD DELEGATION COLLECTION CELEBRATES THE INTERNATIONAL HIT-MAKERS’ 40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR

 

Formed in 1975 in Birmingham, England, DELEGATION enjoyed strong periods of success in different markets during the late 70s and early 80s. Championed by song writer and producer Ken Gold (The Real Thing, Billy Ocean, Ritz etc.) who, along with partner Mick Denne have written multiple soul and pop hits, Delegation’s classic recordings have been distilled in to a two-disc anthology collection celebrating one of the UK’s greatest soul groups. Affectionately known as ‘The Godfather of Brit-Soul’ by international fans, original member and lead singer Ricky Bailey continues to write, perform and tour all over the world with the Delegation band to this day.

 

Signing to State Records the groups critically acclaimed first single ‘The Promise of Love’ set the tone for the Gold/Denne compositions produced by Gold that guaranteed a smooth, polished and engaging soul/pop sound allied with very strong lyrics and performances, whether on stripped back ballads or straight ahead fuel for the dance floor.

 

‘Where Is The Love (We Used To Know)’ and ‘You’ve Been Doing Me Wrong’ brought the band success in the UK in 1977, but arguably US R&B top 10 and crossover pop hit, the mid-tempo love song ‘Oh Honey’, is the group’s most famous release. It is joined by further US R&B hits ‘Someone Oughta Write A Song (About You Baby)’, ‘Welcome To My World’, the blistering ‘Heartache No.9’ and ‘In Love’s Time’, as well as the European hits ‘Put A Little Love On Me’, the super smooth ‘You and I’, ‘Darlin’ (I Think About You)’, ‘In The Night’ and ‘I Wantcha’ Back’. ‘It’s Your Turn’ charted in New Zealand and hit the UK Dance and Soul charts in 1983.

 

Delegation are celebrating the 40th Anniversary of their debut hit with a European tour and this brand new collection featuring all their hits from across the globe.

 

Big Break Records is proud to present In Love’s Time: The Delegation Story (1976-1983). Featuring comprehensive liner notes with brand new interviews with Ricky Bailey and Ken Gold, this is essential listening for all Soul, Disco, Jazz-Funk and Pop fans.
