Description by OLDIES.com:
R&B vocalist/keyboardist/producer Peter Brown had a funky sound that gave him a number of successful R&B hits in the late '70s and early '80s. 1977's "Do Ya Want To Get Funky With Me" was his biggest hit, rising to the Top 20 and becoming the first million-selling 12-inch Disco record. This disc was originally released in 1978 and includes Brown's successful pairings with "Clean Up Woman" Betty Wright.

Thanks to "Do You Wanna Get Funky With Me," a million-selling crossover disco single that lit up the black singles, club play, and pop singles charts, Peter Brown's debut album for TK Disco offshoot Drive, A Fantasy Love Affair, also placed high, reaching number six on the black albums chart. Though "Do You Wanna Get Funky With Me" and "Dance With Me" are clearly intended for clubs, the remainder of the album also shows flashes of a less-cynical Steely Dan in songs like "A Fantasy Love Affair" and "It's True What They Say About Love." The other half of the album is well-crafted by multi-instrumentalist Brown, if nondescript. [Collectables remastered the album for CD release in 1998 with no bonus tracks.] ~ Andy Kellman
