Note: The original 12" single version of 1976 disco hit "Atmosphere Strutt (Part 1 & 2)" (P&P 120111) is credited to Johnny Copeland Orchestra (Cloud One). Correctly, it features the producer/arranger Patrick Adams only who continued recording more material under the name of Cloud One. Adams' response from May 2004 (http://www.djhistory.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7743&page=2): "Johnny Copeland, a great performer in his own right, had nothing to do with "Atmosphere Strutt". At the time I was unwilling to go out and gig to support the record so the company tried to give Copeland a boost by sending him out to gig."
