Notes

White label test pressing of the original 1994 release. Only six copies were pressed to test the quality of the pressing.
They have remained in the Disco Magic UK archives unplayed ever since until some copies were made available for sale by the label in January 2018.
Catalogue number etchings are identical to the labelled release as they were made from the same plates.

I stand corrected and apologise for any offence caused. I made that comment before I became aware of the work you are doing to restart DMUK, your backstory with the label and your relationship with Lombardoni (R.I.P.).

I was kind of right about Electric Choc being next though hehe ;).

All the best

Unfortunately all of the very limited number of copies we did of DMWX3211 Electric Choc - Move Your Body Now were sold at the time (actually they were almost all given for free to shops and distributors). We didn't do any white labels test pressings only the ones with the red label. I do have one copy in my archive. Unfortunately I also have one copy only of the full Alfredo release in my archive. The other 200-odd I had left were pulped in 1997....(yeah...I know...).
We did six copies on white label test pressing of Alfredo "Action!" and six of GaVaCo "Show Me" because they were the first two DMUK releases that we licensed directly from Italian producers rather than Discomagic Italy.
Up to that time we either had used plates from the Discomagic Italy factory or (like in the case of DMX501 and DMWX3199) had them manufactured in UK. We had just had the first pressing of ASHA messed up by the cutting studio missing out the first chord and we wanted to make sure Alfredo and GaVaCo were OK.
GaVaCo and Alfredo were cut at the same time and when the test pressings were ready I went to Italy to check them. I then left them at my father's house 24 years ago and forgot all about it. I have an archive there where I kept copies of all the records I have ever mixed/produced/pressed/distributed.
Last Christmas, when I was in Italy, I had a look through them because I had just re-started DMUK and was curious to see what I had there on vinyl. Among other things, I stumbled upon these TPs and brought them back to the UK.
Of the Alfredo's TPs, three I am keeping in the DMUK archive, the other three I offered for sale to collectors. Two have been sold and the last one is here on Discogs.
PS.: If I wanted to get rich, I sure wouldn't have restarted DMUK in 2018 as a vinyl-only label :D

Sorry, the other two that were for sale have gone already :)
The two collectors who bought them also have the original DMWX 3201 release and were able to check from the catalogue number and other ecthings on the vinyl that they come from the same master metal plate.
Selling those two test pressings helped towards paying for the Alfredo reissues we are manufacturing at this very moment and I am forever grateful to the two collectors and to the many supporters who have pre-ordered the reissues.
You can preorder from our website. Go to: discomagicuk.dance/shop for the official reissues :)

Funniest thing I've ever seen on Discogs. Cheers for brightening up my day.

Looks like someone's trying to get rich.

Wonder which "lost / forgotten" TPs will turn up next? Electric Choc - Move Your Body Is my bet ;)
