Album Review

One of the first of many subsequent best-of CDs featuring the Crown Heights Affair, and it still kicks! While named after a lively, mostly urban section of Brooklyn, NY, the band has a disco/soul sound that occasionally gets raw, i.e., "Sure Shot" and some others. Highs include their signature "Dreamin' a Dream," which is as infectious as anything from the era, the explorative "Foxy Lady," "Far Out," "Love Ripoff," "Say a Prayer For You," and "Rock the World," an old-school rap joint.

Customer Reviews

Classic disco funk !!

As good as it gets with disco funk,. taking me back to my childhood days listening to this stuff..still sounds fresh.."galaxy of love" a pure classic..with crisp production..check out the intro...class !! they really don't make em like this anymore !

Sheer Brilliance

I'm currently playing this album and the excellence of the production is blowing my ears off. You have to hear it to believe how good these people are. All the important chart hits are represented. For those of us who loved those, the album is worth its price for those alone, but with all the other songs, and there are plenty of them, I'm sitting here wondering why they didn't all chart, at least somewhere. Not that it really matters. The goodness of the music is what draws me, and this is very, very good.
