You've got to laugh at these sellers still trying to get top $$$ for not so great copies of the original when you can pick up a mint copy of the re-release for much less.

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 :)

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

Disco Magic UK pressed six copies of Alfredo "Action!" as White Label Test Pressings in 1994.
These were NEVER DISTRIBUTED and are still now in the Disco Magic UK archive, unplayed :)

Good tunes will never fade away, even because of the vagaries of fashion, no one would touch this kind of music and you couldn't give these tunes away ten years ago.
I loved and kept all mine.
My how times change....

One of the very best piano choonz ever made.
It's Italian, but only available on vinyl on this UK exclusive.

The Italian piano anthem of piano anthems. From the opening cords to the "Action" vocal this track builds and builds, totally uplifting piano's looped throughout the track create euphoria on the dancefloor. Although produced later than most of the early 1990 Italian piano screamers this in my opinion was the pinnicle of this genre.
