|Crown Heights Affair|
In the beginning, the lines separating disco and funk were very thin. Crown Heights Affair straddled the line between the two for a series of dancefloor favorites. Discovered by producer/mentor Freida Nerangis in 1971, it wasn't until 1974 that their first single "Sex Trip" was recorded. Next year's "Dreaming A Dream" launched their disco success and they kept it coming with "Foxy Lady," "Far Out," and the Shaft-influenced "Dancin'." Later, slightly more-smoothed out material like "Use Your Body and Soul" and "Galaxy of Love" also did the business in the clubs. Group members Ray Reid and William Anderson enjoyed a prolific writing and production career in the early 1980s, with credits for several acts on Prelude.
