Lovely official reissue of this fantastic italo disco Masterpiece! I got beautiful reissue for 12.00 USA dollars what a bargain. This sounds wonderful just as good as the over priced original.van must have for any italo disco collector.

Attention! The sonic quality of the La Discoteca reissue is really bad, the Dark Entries reissue is much better!

Dear all , the we here forward Manlio Cangelli's words regarding the re-releases of his works hoping that this will clear up things.

the Dear Messers,
I am Manlio Cangelli and MC Harmony is my company since 2000.

I am the composer and producer of some italian Disco ’80 songs: Penguin invasion by
Scotch, Orient express by Wish Key, I wanna fly away by Blue Russell (my wife…), Over and
over by Jerry Moon, New Dream by Clay Pedrini, and some others.
During the years I made my own company, MC Harmony, which is a Publishing company,
recording studios and label, with a big music catalogue on the digital market.
Because of my position in the music business, I’ve been encharged by some friend to
manage their songs: Clay Pedrini signed many years ago a agreement with MC Harmony
about his song NEW DREAM, written and arranged by me but entirely produced by himself,
and the producer of BRAND IMAGE and SOME BIZARRE, Marino Scarabelli, signed a
similar agreement with my company.
!
I’m writing this letter because it happened a very bad story, in this last period: some
month ago I’ve been contacted by an american company asking me the license to reprint
my old songs, wrote and produced by myself and distributed by the italian distributors of
that time.
I didn’t close any commercial agreement with this USA company, because in the meantime
I’ve been contacted by a italian distributor, Electronix Network, asking my songs for their
label LA DISCOTECA. I decided to give my songs to a italian distributor only for
nationalism: I thought it would be more logical to distribute our old Italian Disco song
through a italian distributor. I personally remastered the songs in my big studio, where I
have tape recorders 24 trks and master stereo tapes too.
It happened that this company anyway realized their vinyls and now I know that they are
proposing, selling, shipping, distributing these records… but without any permission of
mine: I asked them to stop this distribution, waiting for our Italian production, but they are
going ahead anyway.
These records coming from USA are NOT the official ones, authorized by me, and this
compelled me to contact a lawyer, encharging him to better protect my work: I already send
CEASE AND DESIST letters signed by me, but they ignore them. This the situation, on
Monday the lawyer studio will send a official request to immediately stop this distribution,
causing deep desease in our marketing plan.
I’m absolutely not happy to write this, but this is the situation….

Manlio Cangelli

“I Wanna Fly Away” by Blue Russell is a true masterpiece and one of the most hauntingly memorable songs of the decade in any genre; monolithic and sublimely spacey synthesizer elements combine with Lorella Ghilardi’s gorgeous, powerful vocals to create a real classic. It just oozes charisma and sexiness, as does the cover image, which is sumptuously captured and enhances the overall appeal of the record, especially for collectors. The mood and character really encapsulates all the finest qualities of Italo Disco - beauty, nostalgia & mystery - wonderful melodic arrangements and a chorus that is particularly catchy - also a key feature of the best Italo tracks.

"I Wanna Fly Away" is an all-around amazing release. First off - the 12" cover art is very unique for an Italo Disco release. Nothing contemporary or bizarre - just a lady sticking her head out of a pilot seat in a small plane. Second, this is one of the finest releases on the finest Italo Disco label ever! Third, the female vocals on this song are supberb and each chorus cuts to a fantastic slide on the synthesizer. "I wanna fly away, I wanna fly away, all the way, lover." - Of course, difficult to understand lyrics make this all the more unique and mysterious. One of my favorite Italo Disco releases ever!
