During the 1970s, veteran disco and R&B deejay and producer Hadley D. Murrell put together a roster of talented songwriters and performers under his HDM Records imprint out of Los Angeles. One of the label’s most prominent artists was the disco/funk outfit, Black Ice, featuring a five-man roster with a range of vocal talents. Produced mostly by Murrell himself, Black Ice released their debut album, Black Ice in 1977, with the lead single ‘Shakedown (Parts 1 & 2) achieving moderate success on the R&B charts.
