SummaryMichael Campbell's musical career began at an early age; his first group was formed when he was 14 so he and his friends could be in their Junior High School's annual talent show. About a year later the band, New Experience, went on to the semi-finals in a CBS Records talent competition held at the Billie Holiday Theater in Brooklyn. Still in High School, Campbell began his studio career as an apprentice at A-1 Recording Studios in New York City. Diligently working as an assistant engineer on sessions with the likes of Bernard Purdy, Lloyd Price, Otis Blackwell, and Roy Ayres provided essential training and equipped Campbell with an arsenal of studio knowledge.
Responsible for scores of releases during the disco era, Michael formed a new band, High Voltage, which became one of the most popular back up bands for artists during that strobe lit decade. This is the period in the spotlight (or strobe light perhaps) on Michael Campbell's "Best Of P&P Records". Whether it was his work as a performer with High Voltage, like the legendary "Rock, Spank, Freak", or his production for P&P artists, such as Wayne Ford's "Dance To The Beat Freakout," (The instrumental version is included here) Campbell's talent isn't as a performer or producer - it's as a performer and producer.
With one listen we're sure you'll agree that the disco-era, and certainly P&P Records, would never have been the same without the incredible talents of Michael Campbell.
