2017 two CD collection. Ray Parker, Jr. First came to prominence as a guitarist, working with Stevie Wonder on his classic Talking Book album in 1972. He them wrote hits for the likes of Rufus & Chaka Khan and Barry White, before signing with Clive Davis's Arista Records in 1977 and setting up the band Raydio as a vehicle for his songs. Ray was asked to provide the movie theme For Ghostbusters in 1984. The title song (featured here in the rare 12" 'Searchin' For The Spirit' remix which makes it's CD debut on this collection) became not only Ray's biggest hit, but one of the highest earning pop singles of all time. 'Ghostbusters' (R&B #1/Pop #1/UK #2/IRE #4) made Ray Parker, Jr. a household name in almost every country in the world. He continued with Arista Records until he signed with Geffen in 1986. He rounded out his Arista tenure with a couple of final hits for the label in the form of 'Jamie' (R&B #12/Pop #14) and 'Girls Are More Fun' (R&B #21/Pop #34/UK #46). At Geffen he hit with 'I Don't Think That Man Should Sleep Alone' (R&B #5/Pop #68/UK #13) and his Burt Bacharach/Carole Bayer-Sager produced duet with Natalie Cole; 'Over You' (R&B #10/UK #65). Big Break Records is proud to present For Those Who Like To Groove: The Essential Ray Parker, Jr And Raydio which features 35 classic tracks and an in-depth interview with Ray Parker, Jr, as well as a foreword written by Clive Davis. The collection is a must for soul, funk and disco fans, and for aspiring Ghostbusters!
