Boney M – 1977 Love for Sale (Second Album)

In 1977, Boney M released their second album, Love for Sale, which contained the hits (#96 on the
Billboard Hot 100, #31 on the Club Play Singles chart), and “Belfast”. It also includes covers:
“Love for Sale” (by Cole Porter), “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” (by Creedence Clearwater Revival), and “Still I’m Sad” (by The Yardbirds). It has been released in vinyl and then CD.
The group embarked on their first major concert tours with a live band of musicians called ‘The Black
Beautiful Circus’ (given their name after Maizie Williams’ first band, ‘Black Beautiful People’).
Though slow to start Love for Sale was certified Gold a year after its release in the UK. Both singles
from the album reached no.1 in Germany and the UK Top 10. By this time, sales had also slowly increased for their first album which had peaked at no.40 in the UK but was now certified Silver.

Boney M – (1)1976 Take The Heat Off Me

Boney M’s first album, Take the Heat Off Me, was released in 1976. It contained tracks that Marcia Barrett had already recorded with Farian, including the title track and “Lovin’ or Leavin'”, both of which were previously recorded in German by another Farian act, Gilla. As Maizie Williams’ voice wasn’t considered suitable for recording purposes by Farian, and a try-out with Bobby Farrell performing “No Woman No Cry” didn’t work, Farian decided to use only Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett along with his own studio-enhanced voice to create the Boney M sound.
Liz Mitchell claimed that only she and Farian had sung on the hit recordings, but that Farrell did,
however, perform live in some of the various later touring incarnations of ‘Boney M’.
The album’s commercial performance was initially lukewarm. However, the group rigorously toured discos, clubs and even country fairs to earn a reputation for themselves. The group’s big break came when, at the end of summer 1976, German television producer Michael ‘Mike’ Leckebusch (of Radio Bremen) requested the group for his show Musikladen. Boney M. appeared on the live music show on September 18, 1976, after 10 pm and in their daring stage costumes, where they performed the song “Daddy Cool”. The song quickly went to no.1 in Germany, with the album following the success of the single. Another single, “Sunny” (a cover of the 1966 Bobby Hebb song) gave the group their second no.1 hit. The group’s popularity had also grown throughout Europe, with “Daddy Cool” reaching no.1 in Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, and Austria. Both singles were also Top 10 hits in the UK which would become one of their biggest markets. The album became a major seller outside of the United States, where the album just missed making the chart. Includes the hits “Daddy Cool” (#65 on the Billboard Hot 100, #11 on the Club Play Singles chart), “Sunny” and “Baby Do You Wanna Bump”. The title – track is the cover of the 1974 Italian hit Nessuno mai (No one ever), sung by the Sicilian artist Marcella Bella and written by her brother Gianni Bella with Giancarlo Bigazzi.
