Kleeer entered their peak in commercial success with 1981’s LICENSE TO DREAM (POP #82/R&B #15). GET TOUGH (R&B #15/DISCO #5) is a rollicking fusion of funk and dance 1982’s GET READY and TASTE THE MUSIC (POP #139/R&B #31) continued the band’s progressive approach to keeping the funk uptown but they were about to undergo a change in direction that would win them a whole new audience.

Kleeer would close their remarkable run with two albums produced by the legendary Eumir Deodato, fresh from his hit run as Kool & The Gang’s producer. 1984’s INTIMATE CONNECTION (R&B #49) and 1985’s SEEEKRET (UK #96) displayed a laid-back almost entirely electronic sound that found that band in step with the mid-eighties soul sound. ‘Next Time It’s For Real’ (R&B #79) is possibly their most understated release and continues the mid-tempo groove they continued to explore throughout their run whilst final hit ‘Take Your Heart Away’ (R&B #62/UK #86) boasts a wondrous quiet storm prelude before segueing into a breathless soulful groove.
BBR is very proud indeed to present this newly remastered 2CD anthology of Kleeer’s catalogue with brand new interviews with Paul Crutchfield and Richard Lee housed in a super jewel case.
