The re-issue of these two long-lost and highly collectable LPs marks the end of a long road for BBE and for the band Breakaway who made them... The explosion of Internet connectivity has made what used to seem rare commonplace, but also opened up a world of previously unknown musical riches, and enabled enterprising fans to make contact with obscure figures that they might've imagined would be forever inaccessible. Whereas collectors used to prize independent labels, now it's all about the ‘private press': records released by the same folks that made them, in tiny numbers, without distribution, and promotion usually limited to giving them out by hand at gigs. Such were the releases of Breakaway. Breakaway recorded two LPs. in the late 70's these re-issues tell the story of a magnificent live band that made waves across St. Louis, Ill and further beyond to cities such as Boston and Las Vegas. A story that has come full circle after 35 years... Their self titled first album Breakaway touches showbiz glitz, while songs like ‘Understudy DJ' and ‘There's a New Group In Town', caught the disco vibe, as pretty much everything else did in 1977, and it's these that have been delighting twenty-first century dancers , as the more-than decade-long mania for all things ‘disco' sends enterprising DJs and collectors looking way beyond the canon of classics.
