RAIN & SHINE

Rain & Shine continue the love for Steve Elliott’s self-produced music by giving his second LP "Completion Of A Miracle" (1982) another lease of life.

Remastered from the original reel-to-reel tapes. Includes dancefloor cut "Wake Up" which is both syrupy sweet and undeniably funky, and remarkably like fellow Californian Ned Doheny. "You Touched Me" is another evocative, bedroom-boogie-soul number with classic drum machines powering an assembly of synth-strings and unique vocal murmurings. Another essential release from Rain & Shine - set to become a future collector’s item? Youbetcha!


Skye

Ain’t No Need / Ain’t No Need (Dance)

Rain & Shine continue their journey through our collective wantlist with the first official reissue of this sacred slice of funk since it’s 1976 release. And with a median price of £228 on Discogs it’s about time us mere mortals had the chance of owning it. Remastered and reissued with the original band members blessing, "Ain’t No Need" has long been a favourite of the some of the most well-respected DJs across the scene, from Floating Points and Sadar Bahar, to Mr Scruff and Theo Parrish - with Theo even releasing a live cover version performed alongside his band on their 2014 tour. Boasting the scratchiest guitar chords, endless keyboard solos and a super-soulful hook "Ain't No Need" guarantees smiles on the dancefloor. Strictly limited to 1000, never to be repressed - hand numbered, 7 Inch picture sleeve with a dinked centre hole - you know what to do!

Energize

Piece Of Class / Star Of The Disco

Rain&Shine proudly present ENERGIZE, a band out of Marin County, California in 1979. Previously unobtainable even for top DJs due to rarity, Rain&Shine gives this double A side modern soul/disco 45 an official re-issue treatment. About ENERGIZE (words by Dan Hays - Guitarist, Songwriter):

ENERGIZE came to age in a post-hippie era, where musicians went back to playing covers in bars. However Marin was still inexpensive and it was possible to pool money together to buy studio time.

That's how ENERGIZE formed - working musicians led by the superb producer and guitar player, Archie Williams (son of Archie Williams Sr - a passionate educator, WWII air force pilot and 1936 Olympic champion) Dan Hayes - songwriter and guitarist, and John Isabeau - lyrics and our executive producer.

John is now a successful Hollywood producer, Oscar documentary award winner, and resides in James Brown's former house in Las Vegas.

The record also features a hugely successful blues vocalist who has asks to remain uncredited. Archie, John and I now have grown children and a few grandkids as well and getting a kick that 40 years later, our self-produced record has found an audience. Far Out.

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Two mega high roller disco bombs with the label 'rarity' hanging proudly on them. This is a high caliber reissue and unfortunately we are not getting many so rush in!

Rain & Shine give out a hefty holler of "Church!" and take us all a little bit higher with the first ever official re-release of The Nelson Family's Gospel classic from 1986. An enduring and seriously in demand LP, "Filled With His Spirit" is an essential purchase for any serious collectors of Gospel. Quality from end-to-end, the LP including the cuts "Thank You Lord" (firm favorite of Floating Points and Skymark), title track "Filled With His Spirit" and "Everlasting Love".
