Area Code (212) was a disco vocal trio from New York. They released just an album before disappearing. My favourite track is “Gaz-O-Lean” a crazy disco track with an Indian flute on it. The key members were Steve Shelto, an American singer raised in Brooklyn who later worked with Shep Pettibone, and Stan Bronstein: a saxophone player best known for playing with John Lennon, The Clash and the Aerosmith.

John Forde is an English keyboard player, best known for his collaboration with Judge Dread in the 70’s. He released only 3 singles: this is the b-side of the last one “Woman”. I wish it was longer.
