The "V" Project (featuring K.O. & Extra Specials) - Black Jack (1986)



Originally released 1977(http://www.discogs.com/Baciotti-Black-Jack/release/484879)

This '86 cover is a little more melancholic and electronic sounding. Still the original was an amazing record for 1977.

I heard the 86 version before I knew about the 77 release, and interpreted the lyrics as documenting a young mans entry into the NY scene, with all it's pitfalls and dangers. But in '77, in Italy, who knows what it was about.

BLACK JACK

The rip is recorded at -8, adds about a minute to the original length. Speed it up if you have a mp3 thingy, but I like my nrg waaaaaaaay slower.

Cerrone - Where Are You Now

This is how all Kim Wilde songs should sound ;-) Ah Cerrone, you've done it again!!!
It's recorded a bit slower than the recommended '45', but there aren't many that would get up to dance in front of this blog!
So please stay seated...

Klein and MBO - Wonderful (Disco Dub-Mix)



B side of the promo, a "Disco Dub-Mix"; Sounds like live mixing, starting/stopping all the old din-sync'd Roland gear, you can hear the tracks being punched in and out.

Yeah, its Wonderful

Sweet Melodies


What i love about these mp3 blogs is that they often make me go back and listen again to a record I haven't looked at for years. Over at innersounds, Linda Clifford - Hold Me Close did just that, and I got stuck on sweet melodies.
This pic is the gatefold sleeve opened up.

Electric Baile


2009. Here it is. 2008, where did it go. Master Plan - Electric Baile (1986) Original and Dub Version
My photo
Welcome to the home of dead and dying stars. Laying to rest records that clear the floor and drain the bar, these awkward, far from perfect b sides, nrg also rans and synthy italo singalongs all have a common bond. Dramatically pulled from the piles of vinyl that never quite made it to the party, you can still hear an electric heart beating. (ellt.flwr at g mail) The above was written when I started this blog. Numbers have dwindled. Everything is on UTUBE. I, however, continue undaunted. Now the tunes are ones that I am listening to currently, no theme or reason. Italosleaze, can't change that. But still the 'ethos' remains...let the ears do the talking. Cheers. And I have to say a big Thanks (THANKS) to diepvries. You know. It all seemed so innocent back then.
