Lofting in the Rain

In 1978, Don Ray of Kongas and Sphinx fame collaborated with Cerrone to write the amazing disco gem, "Standing in the Rain". Originally released as a 12" Promo by the Polydor imprint label Malligator, this song became a staple of David Mancuso's legendary New York club, The Loft. This rare classic has been reissued a number of times, including being featured on the Loft Classics bootleg series (Volume 11 to be exact) that came out in 1995. This isn't the only time Don Ray and Cerrone have collaborated. Cerrone produced Ray's debut solo album Garden of Love in 1978, along with the two collaborating together in the classic afro-disco group, Kongas. This is just another example of the amazing music these two produced when they came together.

Is "Got To Have Loving" on that Don Ray album? I suddenly made a conneion with Cerrone's cover of that song.
