Dream World  


Crown Heights Affair were a powerhouse band that made some of the best disco funk records in the 70's. "Dream World" is no exception, though not one of their big hits. It's super full on from start to finish, and though each element is over the top it all fits together so well...even the bomb exploding at the end works. Possibly my favorite part of this song is their use of horns. Big and precise with no timidness. "Dream World" was released on a limited Promo 12" from Mercury Records in 1978 as a precursor to the album of the same name. This 12" is backed with a mix of "Galaxy of Love" and "I'm Gonna Love You Forever".

    Crown Heights Affair is the bomb. What do you think is their best LP? Which album is a must? I have the Dreaming A Dream album which I think is great.

    Nice one! I love the guitar chords and the warbled vocals. This is my second favorite song by C.H.A. The only one that I think beats it out is "Far Out", which is on the same album, "Do it Your Way."
