Click below for an Aquarian Dream  sample:

East 6th Street

  

 
This soul-fusion group was the brainchild of Norman Connors.  Some of the original members were Pete Bartee (guitar), Gloria Jones (vocals), Claude Bartee (saxophone), Jimmy Morrison (drums), Ernie Adams (bass) and Jacques Burvick (keys).  Their Buddah debut failed to sell in the range of their mentor Connor's LPs, but has gained in stature with the discovery of "Phoenix" and "East 6th Street."  A move to Elektra was the first of many changes, which included Jones being replaced by Sylvia Striplin and then Connie Harvey.  They couldn't get a hit on Elektra either and broke up in 1980.  

Aquarian Dream's Deepest Grooves

Norman Connors Presents Aquarian Dream (Buddah, 1977)
Probably their best LP.  With "Phoenix" and "East 6th Street." 

Fantasy (Elektra, 1978)

Chance to Dance (Elektra, 1979)
No more Norman Connors in the mix, so they turn the production duties over to Jeff Lane.  It is one of their lesser-known LPs, but does have Eddie Hazel guesting on a couple of songs.
