Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 1978 album from the artist best known as arranger for legendary Disco figures Cerrone and Alex Costandinos. Garden Of Love was Don Ray's first album as a solo artist. 1978 saw the creative partnership between Ray and Cerrone reach full bloom, with Ray co-writing 'Look For Love' on Cerrone IV and Cerrone producing and cowriting this, Ray's debut album. In addition to the Top 50 US Pop hit single 'Got To Have Loving', The Garden Of Love also featured the later classic 'Standing In The Rain'. The album was a smash hit with US Disco fans, reaching #4 on the Disco chart. BBR. 2011.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don Ray -- A Disco God April 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The musical genius of Don Ray is timeless and moving! The track "Got to Have Loving" absolutely stuns the senses, with Ray's boldly imaginative mastery of percussions, and waves of shocking style segues. Anyone who thinks The BeeGees or KC & The Sunshine Band purely defined the Disco era, or that the music lacked substance, most definitely owes it to themselves to open their minds (and ears) to the magic of Don Ray!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don Ray...The Garden of Love... July 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not knowing who this gentleman was, and not being aware of his music, "Got to Have Loving" was yet
another cut that I stumbled into on XM-Radio. I purchased the disc on Amazon, and was pleasantly
surprised! I enjoyed the whole disc! Good quality tunes throughout!

Recommended!

Listing is as follows:

1. Got to Have Loving (8:19) [Signature song! Perfect length!]
2. Body and Soul (04:24)
3. Midnight Madness (05:43)
4. Standing in the Rain (06:37)
5. Garden of Love (04:40) [Title Song! Great track!]
6. My Desire (07:31)

Put this CD in your player, it'll be over before you know it! Great for the price!

I rate "Don Ray...The Garden of Love..."...Five stars! Classic Dance Music from the Late 70's

3.0 out of 5 stars Unique take on Disco December 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The opener Got To Have Loving is a major classic, a tour de force of imaginative synth textures, rhythmic variation and hypnotic girl vocals framing Don Ray's powerful voice and bitter lyrics. The uptempo Body And Soul has a Latin-American rhythmic feel while Midnight Madness is pure 70's disco in the vein of KC and the Sunshine Band or The Ritchie Family. The influence of Eurodisco musician and producer Cerrone is evident throughout, especially on Standing In The Rain with its soaring synthesizer. The title track is unremarkable mid-tempo disco, although it has some nice flutes and other effects. Garden of Love is an interesting album from the disco era and contains one solid gold must-have track in the form of Got To Have Loving.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don Ray's only album September 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The only album from Don Ray (with a significant input by Cerrone)

leaves you wanting more.Even though it's from the late 70's it still sounds fresh.
