Aquarian Dream were formed by writer/musician Jacques Burvick in New York. They played Jazz and Brazilian music live and the greatest talent in NY would join in. One night in walked Norman Connors who took them to Buddah Records. Norman, himself signed to Buddah, became producer for the group’s first two of three albums in total.


The two albums presented here were there only recordings for Elektra Records, their second and third albums respectively in 1978 and 1979. “Fantasy” was the most successful album and features the jazz funk classic “You’re A Star”, sampled by Spiller (“Urastar”) and Justin Faust (“Monaco”). “Yesterday (Was So Nice Today)” sampled by Big Sean (“Crazy”), D’Neil (“This Thing”) and David Banner (“Sex, Drugs and Video Games”). “Fantasy” was sampled by James Pants (“Under My Tree”). It was the second album produced by Norman Connors for the group and came with a very sophisticated, highly orchestrated sound and the album also includes a fondly remembered rendition of Herbie Hancock’s “Gentle Thoughts”.


“Chance By Dance” was produced by Jeff Lane, best known for his work with Brass Contsruction and B.T. Express. The music is a lot earthier, with frantic disco epics in “getup Up And Dance” and the title track. Lack of substantial commercial success ultimately lead to the groups decline, and after that Jacques Burvick took his epic “You’re A Star” to record with another group Norman Connors worked with, The Starship Orchestra.
