Tabu Records defined the sound of young America throughout the late 1970s and 1980s, with hugely successful acts like Brainstorm, The S.O.S. Band, Alexander O Neal and Cherrelle, whilst nurturing the powerhouse production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis one of the most successful production teams of the last 30 years. A comprehensive deluxe re-issue campaign will roll throughout 2013 and into 2014.
The label's re-launch continues with The S.O.S. Band's fourth album for Tabu, 'On The Rise' , which was the album that helped the band crossover to a much broader mainstream/pop market. The album includes "Tell Me If You Still Care", "For Your Love" as well as the iconic "Just Be Good To Me", a track covered and became a UK #1 by Beats International (aka Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim), as well as being the basis of Professor Green and Lily Allen s Just be Good To Green .
This expanded album is packaged in a sumptuous case-bound book, containing newly authored liner notes and lyrics, along with additional remixes and alternate versions, of singles originally released from the album.
Digitally remastered in 2013, and reissued with 4 BONUS tracks! Smash 1983 album includes "Just Be Good To Me". (S.O.S. BAND)
