Crown Heights Affair -- Strangers When We Meet

I am always surprised to hear that such sweet and romantic music as today's song actually has its roots in a cold and impersonal city as New York. Crown Heights Affair, an eight-men band, formed in Brooklyn in the early 70's. The group was quite popular in the UK in the 80's where they charted in the Top 50 several times. At home they were rather successful on the Dance charts with Dreaming A Dream reaching  #1  on the Hot Dance Club Play chart (which I've never heard of before) in 1975. The same song reached #43 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

For those of you who are into Disco/Dance, here's Dreaming A Dream and Foxy Lady live in 1977
