Shakatak - Drivin' Hard
Secret Records are releasing a remastered re-issue of Shakatak's classic 1981 debut album Drivin' Hard, featuring the hit singles "˜Livin' in the UK' and "˜Brazilian Dawn.'
Shakatak is continuing to feature their classic line-up of Bill Sharpe, Jill Saward, Roger Odell and George Anderson.
After a number of successful top-twenty singles in the UK, the band went on to score unprecedented international success with the release of the classic "˜Nightbirds' recording and the title track has now become a standard in the popular music repertoire. This success was repeated with the top-ten hit "˜Down on the Street' with its award-winning video. With the magic Al Jarreau/Shakatak combination, the group went on to record the track "˜Day by Day' to further international acclaim and continues to be highly successful in Japan to this day.
Following the success of the last Shakatak album "˜On The Corner', we are now releasing the album that started it all, "˜Drivin' Hard', as a CD. Featuring the hits "˜Livin' In The UK', "˜Brazilian Dawn', "˜Steppin'' and "˜Into The Night'.
