Product Description

· LINX started out life as a 5-piece Soul and Brit-Funk band. Signed to Chrysalis records, the band released their first single in 1980 titled, YOU'RE LYING which yielded the group a top 20 single reaching #15 on the UK Pop Chart.

· Shortly before the release of their debut album, the band slimmed down their line up and became a duo consisting of bass player Peter Martin and singer David Grant who has worked with many artists as a backing singer including Diana Ross and The Lighthouse Family.

· In the Spring of 1981 LINX tasted their next piece of chart success when INTUITION, the title track from the band's 1981 album release, made it into the top 10 scoring a #7 on the UK Pop charts featuring a distinct Caribbean flavour. The follow up single, THROW AWAY THE KEY, is driven by a classic funk bass line and David Grant's effortless vocals glide over the top which returned group to the UK Pop chart at #21. YOU'RE LYING also gained an impressive #27 US R&B chart position with TOGETHER WE CAN SHINE following suit, securing an R&B top 50 spot.

· BBR is very proud to present the first ever CD issue of the Brit-Funk classic, INTUITION, in full and expanded form, complete with extensive liner notes that feature an interview with David Grant along with added bonus tracks.

· Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Brit-Funk, Soul, Disco and R&B fans out there!

5.0 out of 5 stars Over 30 years to come to CD, but worth the wait 23 Aug 2012
By Mr. D TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This review is for: Intuition
I could kiss the staff at BBR for releasing this and the fantastic David Grant ~ Expanded Edition. What really makes this release special is including the bonus tracks which in some cases vastly improve on the original album tracks. Surprisingly, this is the first time this album has been on CD, so we have had to wait over 30 years to hear this in digital quality. But it was well worth the wait. The album version of "You're Lying" chops rather crudely into the next track, but thankfully here we get the 12" version as a standalone track. Most compilations that included this track in the past favoured the U.S. remix (which is also here), which I found irritating with the "La-La-La" section. To these ears it isn't a patch on the UK 12" version, but thankfully BBR included both here. The original 7" single version of "You're Lying" is not included but is available on 100 Hits 80s Classics, which also includes the 7" single version of "Intuition" which is my favourite mix of the song. Buying the 2 CD's together gives you all the best mixes from the "Intuition" album. The one track that particularly makes this CD essential for me is the 12" mix of "Throw Away The Key" which just sounds stunning and is worth the price of this CD on its own. The U.S. remixes of "Together We Can Shine" and "Wonder What You're Doing Now" also show how you can turn average sounding album tracks into truly great tracks, such is the power of a good mix. All in all, for me this is an essential purchase.

By the way, I have also reviewed the excellent: David Grant ~ Expanded Edition

5.0 out of 5 stars At last the Fantastic Linx Album on CD 4 Jun 2011
By Andyn17
Format:Audio CD
In the late seventies and early eighties the only place were I could listern to decent music was on a hill in my local park(the only place were we could pick up the Robbie Vincents show on Raio London on our crappy radio)the show was so new and fresh compared to the pop pap on all the national stations.
Turning on the radio and catching the end of Your Lying' who's this new American Band we thought and then the phrase from Robbie Vincent "the sound of Hackney strikes back" and for me that was the start of the Bri-Funk era and the bands that followed ,Central Line,The Light of the World,The list goes on, in short a Classic Album from Linx and at the time when the re-mix was king the fantastic US remix of your lyin,The Album is a must if your were ever into soul and Brit-funk in the 70's-80's

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant ! 7 Oct 2011

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Absolutely brilliant album. Why they were never huge is a mystery. I saw them live and David Grant is right up there with Michael Jackson and Daryl Hall.
