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.

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?

This pressing sounds absolutely amazing. 5 words are sadly missing

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) :)

Released on Maurice's own Mr. Disc Organization, 'Spacer Woman' remained well hidden until it surfaced on the iconic I-f mix CD 'Mixed Up In The Hague Vol. 1' in 2000 and has since been regarded as one of the hottest cult revival tracks of current times. Even though 'Spacer Woman' has seen countless re-presses, most of them unofficial, bootlegs, rips, counterfeits and features in the past 10 years, none of them properly addressed the single most important issue: sound quality. Luckily for us all, this is where the San Francisco based imprint Dark Entries comes into play. Specialised in bringing to life out of print, unreleased and contemporary underground music, Josh Cheon employed the services of the legendary engineer George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkley to work his magic and get the track up to par with current audiophile demands. The remastered tracks bring the signature Linn Drum sounds and the TR-808 samples to a much crisper and punchier level, the arpeggiated DX7 synth melody line glides smoothly across the track and the vocoder vocals sound clean, loud and smoother than ever before. A pleasant and unexpected surprise was to find the sought after instrumental mix on the flipside, where just the stripping of vocals opens up the beautiful synth bass line and brings the lovely cosmic pads to a higher level of enjoyment.

And to take things up to deluxe levels, the reissue is housed for the first time ever in a gorgeous silver metallic picture sleeve featuring the android model drawing taken from the original 7" release jacket and also features a 2-sided retro-design post card insert complete with lyrics and full credits. No matter if you are an italo-disco freak, a purveyor of the finest electronic sounds, the hottest DJ in your town or simply a good record lover, this is definitely one release to buy, cherish and pass on to the next generation so that this short-lived culture never gets lost.

This is a beautiful reissue on a high quality vinyl and cover is big surprise...a picture cover and a big one.I have this old and rare mr.disc 7'' single with this picture cover and was really happy when I bought this new 12'' Dark Entries reissue with same picture cover.
This one is a remastered...I wonder why?If you ask me...there was no need for that.The old recording is very good and that's a fact.
Of course I did a listening test and on new one the bass is a little more 'tight' and female vocal sound a bit harsh but you can't have it all!
It is a decent piece of vinyl and it's just my opinion but I recommend in any case!
A must have!!!
