Quality pressing, faithful replica, but sadly the label text/art is a little blurry, likely from coming from a poor scan of the original. Almost thought it was a bootleg at first.

Anybody knows about the sound quality in comparison with the ZYX Release? ( https://www.discogs.com/de/Charlie-Space-Woman/release/28161 )

Awesome tune! A couple commenters believe that the instrumental would be better without the "cheap sounding" melody. Give me a break. A lot of people in the dance community are super pretentious. If you were at a club and the dj played the instrumental you would dance you liars!

I am regretting my purchase of the c. August 2016 repress, due to the following remastering errors:

1. Throughout both tracks, all transients are muted, as if aggressive noise reduction has been applied across-the-board.

For example, compare the attacks of the electronic drums from the vocal version's percussion break:
this DE-077 pressing (muffled, like an overly declicked needledrop or low-quality MP3)
The Best of Italo Disco Hits vol. III LP from 1985 (way more like how it's supposed to sound)

The attacks are also muted on the 2007 CD I Love ZYX Italo Disco Collection 7, so this problem is apparently in the master recordings supplied to both ZYX in 2007 and Dark Entries in 2014. I PMed the Dark Entries label owner, and he said that the master came direct from Mr. Disc Organization; no noise reduction was applied, and that my ears must be playing tricks on me.

2. On the instrumental side, there are other problems:
sudden bass boost at 0:36
skip at 4:14
sudden treble drop at 5:16 (listen to the hi-hats)
skip at 6:07
skip at 6:22 (harder to hear, but one of the kicks hits about 20 ms too soon)

Sloppy! These skips are only a small fraction of a second of missing audio, not correlating to a full turn of the record, so they seem to be "baked in." They are not present in other recordings I've heard of original 12"s.

The Dark Entries label owner says that all pressings of this 12" are derived from the same mothers, and I am the only person to have complained.

I will amend this review if any new info is forthcoming.

Now, there are cheap copies from the Label (dark entries) itself available again. Is this a 2nd press of the reissue, that will also hit european Shops?

there is a version with 6 minutes runtime and one with 7:23... what is missing at the shorter one?

This unofficial/bootleg is not the best pressing (very quiet for single track per side); the label is obviously from a cheap printer. The remaster on Dark Entries is the one to have, which is being repressed eventually...

I believe I will not be alone to say we would love to have this repressed (regularly) :)
