Sexy Lady / Keep Dancing 12"
Sleeve artwork by Lee Ifill

Essential Gerard P.J. Brown; soul-disco-reggae-funk fusion reissued officially for the first time and cut loud from the studio master tape onto 12” single via Backatcha Records. Hailing from St. Kitts and Nevis, percussionist and vocalist P.J. Browne originally produced and recorded ’Sexy Lady’ and ‘Keep Dancing’ for his sought-after 1982 self-released EP.

Whilst the A-side was Soca-heavy, the B-side featured these two disco DJ-friendly gems performed and recorded alongside Browne’s G.I.’s Brass International bandmates at Ochoa Recording Studio in Puerto Rico, a favoured recording location by musicians from the neighbouring islands.

'Sexy Lady' was arranged by P.J.'s close friend and multi-instrumentalist, the late Kenrick Georges. A renowned musician and arranger, Georges wrote and composed the national anthem for Saint Kitts and Nevis when the country received its independence from the United Kingdom in 1983.

'Keep Dancing' was arranged together with Kittitian music icons, G.I.'s Brass International, affectionately known as De Brass.

P.J. toured and played percussion for the well known Soca group throughout the late 70s and early 80s. Alongside this, he led Black Love, a touring three-man act that played R&B, reggae, rock and disco, before relocating to New York where he released various solo ventures on his label P-Jay Records.
