The group were recruited to the ranks of Buddah Records in 1976, where they released their debut album the same year, entitled 'Norman Connors Presents Aquarian Dream'.
The album featured the popular song 'Phoenix' along with the club dancer 'East 6th Street'.
Aquarian Dream then switched labels to the Elektra imprint, in 1977, where they released the single 'You're A Star'.
In 1979, they re-released their 1976 songs 'Phoenix' and 'East 6th Street' for the Buddah imprint again, giving the melodies a new lease of life.
