Портал Shop24Direct опубликовал аннотации к релизам Boney M. Diamonnds



Крупный международный торговый портал Shop24Direct, охватывающий немецкоязычные страны Европы (Германию, Австрию и Швейцарию) опубликовал краткие аннотации к новой юбилейной коллекции Boney M. Diamonds.
Теперь уже точно можно сказать, что все аудио и видеоматериалы, которые будут представлены в трёх вариантах этого великолепного издания, прошли тщательную реставрацию с применением новейших цифровых технологий.
Поэтому за качество изображения и звука (релиз будут доступен как на CD, так и на DVD), скорее всего, можно не беспокоиться.
Что касается контентного наполнения, то 3CD-аудиоверсии представлены в двух вариантах. Первый комплект рассчитан на массового покупателя и будет продаваться по относительно демократичной цене. Это набор из 3-х компакт-дисков с необходимым объёмом информации об авторах, исполнителях и т.д.
Делюкс-версия будет содержать тот же набр CD, однако в качестве специального бонуса к ней добавлен роскошный буклет с редчайшими фото, биографиями участников проекта и т.д.
Отрадно, что в издании будут представлены хиты карибской четвёрки в хронологическом порядке. Первый альбом включает лучшие композиции 70-х, второй - 80-х и 90-х, а на третьем разместятся бонус-трэки и новейшие ремиксы от лучших DJ и микс-мастеров. Главными сюрпризами здесь обещают стать "Ma Baker 2015" и новая песня в исполнении лидер-вокалистки Boney M. Лиз Митчелл под названием "Song of Joy". Как мы уже сообщали ранее, автором песни является Мэри Эпплгейт, а продюсирует трэк создатель и бессменный куратор проекта Boney M. Фрэнк Фариан (Frank Farian). К работе в студии также привлечены некоторые сотрудники легендарной команды FAR Music, работавшие над проектами, которые сегодня считаются классикой поп-музыки и задавшими новые стандарты качества продюсирования. 
Те, кто захочет пополнить свою видеоколлекцию Boney M., наверняка будут рады получить "трёхдисковое" издание на DVD, куда (согласно предварительной информации) войдёт запись LIVE-концерта, ранее не издававшегося на цифровых носителях. Но это пока предварительная информация, циркулирующая в кругах фанов.
В завершение этого поста ещё раз напомним читателям нашего блога предварительный трэк-лист аудиоверсии юбилейной коллекции:

Boney M. - Diamonds (40th Anniversary Edition)

Boney M. - the most successful pop music export in the history of Germany. To date, worldwide sold 160 million copies of their albums and singles.
The first track under the name Boney M singer, composer and producer Frank Farian (real name Franz Reuther) recorded independently. It was in late 1974. All voices (male and "female") belong to him. After the success of the single "Baby Do You Wanna Bump?" Farian was invited to speak at the Dutch television. But Frank Farian was known as a singer of German hits. So he decided to put together an exotic group to promote their new black music. After a few changes, in 1976, was formed the final line-up. These were people from the Caribbean islands: Liz Mitchell, Marcia Barrett, Maizie Williams and Bobby Farrell.
Boney M.'s first album, Take the Heat off Me, was released in 1976. The album's commercial performance was initially lukewarm. However, the group rigorously toured discos, clubs and even country fairs to earn a reputation for themselves. The group's big break came when, at the end of summer 1976, German television producer Michael 'Mike' Leckebusch (of Radio Bremen) requested the group for his show Musikladen. Boney M. appeared on the live music show on 18 September 1976, after 10 pm and in their daring stage costumes, where they performed the song "Daddy Cool". The song quickly went to no.1 in Germany, with the album following the success of the single. Another single, "Sunny" (a cover of the 1966 Bobby Hebb song) gave the group their second no.1 hit. The group's popularity had also grown throughout Europe, with "Daddy Cool" reaching no.1 in Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, and Austria. Both singles were also Top 10 hits in the UK, which would become one of their biggest markets.
In 1977, Boney M. released their second album "Love for Sale" (N13 in UK and entered the top 10 in many other countries), which contained the hits "Ma Baker" and "Belfast". The group embarked on their first major concert tours with a live band of musicians called 'The Black Beauty Circus' (given their name after Maizie Williams' first band, 'Black Beautiful People'). Love for Sale was certified Gold a year after its release in the UK. Both singles from the album reached no.1 in Germany and the UK Top 10.
1978 was the biggest year for Boney M. They released a new double A-sided single, "Rivers of Babylon/Brown Girl in the Ring", which became a massive hit all over Europe, reaching No. 1 in several countries as well as becoming one of the biggest selling singles of all time in the UK. It also became their most successful single in the United States, peaking at No. 30 on the U.S. pop singles chart. Following this came their biggest-selling album, Nightflight to Venus, which spawned further hit singles with "Rasputin" and "Painter Man". Continuing with their success, they released "Mary's Boy Child - Oh My Lord", which was the 1978 Christmas number one single in the United Kingdom and became another of the biggest selling singles of all time there. Also during 1978, Boney M. made a much publicized promotional visit to the Soviet Union, one of the very few Western acts along with Elton John to do so, although tracks like "Rasputin" were not released in the Soviet Union due to their lyrics.
Boney M's album "Night Flight to Venus" was one of the best selling in the world.
1979 saw Boney M. release a brand new single, "Hooray! Hooray! It's a Holi-Holiday", which became another Top 10 hit across Europe. Later in the year they released their fourth album, "Oceans of Fantasy", containing two hit singles – "Gotta Go Home"/"El Lute" and "I'm Born Again"/"Bahama Mama". The album also included a "Lead" and "Backing Vocals" credit for the first time. "Oceans of Fantasy" reached no.1 in the UK and was certified Platinum.
In 1980, Boney M. released a greatest hits album, The Magic of Boney M. - 20 Golden Hits (N1 in UK).
Boney M.'s fifth album had been scheduled for release in November 1980 but the recording sessions dragged on all through 1981. When Boonoonoonoos was finally released by the end of that year, Bobby Farrell was fired from the group due to his unreliability.
Reggie Tsiboe was hired to replace Farrell as the new male member of Boney M. in 1982. The group returned to the German Top 20 in the autumn of 1984 with "Kalimba de Luna" and "Happy Song", the latter seeing Bobby Farrell return to the group. Both songs were carbon-copies of the original Italian hits by Tony Esposito and Baby's Gang respectively.
1992 saw a renewed interest in Boney M.'s music with the "Boney M. Megamix" single returning the group to the UK Top 10 for the first time since 1980, and a subsequent Greatest Hits album reaching the UK Top 20 in 1993.       
A musical based on the music of Boney M., Daddy Cool, opened in London in August 2006. From April to July 2007, the show played in a mobile theatre in Berlin, which was specially designed for it.
CD/DVD compilations "The Magic of Boney M." (2006) was big international hits.
CD compilation "Christmas with Boney M" (2007) is still headed festive charts in Canada, South Africa, India...
