meaty cuts for sleazy butts
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.
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.
- ITALO SLEAZE
- 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.
Mixes that mean lotsalotsa - you know, the ones that stick around!
