Repro-reissue of this underground disco album from 1976, in standard muffled pressing. "The studio-bound disco unit Cloud One made its debut with the spectacular 'Atmosphere Strut', a drifting, blissed-out nugget of underground disco that featured a repeated female vocal refrain of 'We're gonna fly/Fly away.' More importantly, what made the song stand out from everything else released at the time was the wild synthesizer line from producer and arranger Patrick Adams, who -- as with dozens of other short-lived disco acts shamelessly chucked into obscurity -- helmed the group. The nine-minute single was also the inaugural release on P&P, the first of several small labels run by Adams and partner Peter Brown. Several Cloud One singles followed throughout the late '70s on P&P-affiliated labels, such as Queen Constance, Golden Flamingo, Heavenly Star, and Sound of New York. The Atmosphere Strut LP, released in 1976, compiled some of the group's 12" material (the LP included a seven-minute edit of the dizzying 'Disco Juice,' another Adams classic)." -- Andy Kellman.
