by The Jammers
Back in the early Eighties, a young producer, keyboardist and songwriter from the Bronx, Richie Weeks, already known for his smash hit “Rock Your World” with Weeks & Co, rallies his favorite musicians and vocalists (including his own brother Sheldon Weeks) to create a new outfit - The Jammers - as a new project for the famed NYC disco label Salsoul Records.
The Jammers were composed of Sheldon Weeks, Debbi Blackwell Cook and Jocelyn Brown on vocals along with Richie Weeks and his musicians: bass guitarist Raymond Earl, keyboardist Dennis Richardson, and drummer Scotty Miller (from Instant Funk) and saxophonist Roy Nathanson, members of New York City Strings, salsa trombonist Barry Rogers and jazz trumpeter Earl Gardner.
Most of the recording sessions for this album were held at the legendary Sigma Sound Studios in NYC with Richie Weeks and Shep Pettibone at the mixing console.
Released in 1982 on Salsoul Records, the self titled Jammers LP was a smash hit in NYC and beyond, even reaching deep into the Bilboard and UK Charts.
The Jammers continued establishing Richie Weeks as one of the most important musician, singer songwriter and producer of the New York Dance and Disco Boogie scene. Richie Weeks blew up worldwide and even performed live at the Paradise Garage and Studio 54 to name a few….
This legendary album has been professionally remastered to Richie Weeks’ specs and also includes the two unreleased versions of “Just For You” - 12” Mix and Radio Mix - for the first time on vinyl.
Jerome Derradji and Past Due Records are proud to present the Jammers on a Dj friendly DLP and CD.
