Any word on whether this 2019 version will sound any better than the 2014 pressing?

Reissue on Mannequin records available for example at clone.nl ( https://clone.nl/item54342.html )
I heard from good source that the original tapes are heavily damaged at the end of the tracks. Therefore you will never have a perfect reissue of this record except if you find a copy of the 1983 original edition.

Terrible pressing. It sounds like a bad vinyl rip of the 1983 record, done with cheap and uncalibrated needle. The result - heavy distortion starting after 2 minutes.

Ahahaha, some dealers here are offering a near mint copy of this bad sounding repress for nearly 100 Euro? Seriously?

A true masterpiece. Just highly recommended for every Italo fan.

I remember when I heard this record for the first time nearly ten years ago. At that time I knew it has something special but I couldn't find an access to this "obscure" sound!
But now, when I heard it again, it has grown to one of my absolutely favourite Italo-Disco records! A true masterpiece!

Btw: In several forums I read the only good sounding record is the one on Proto. So don't waste your money on this reissues :)

Seriously, so the 2014 reissue is taken from a vinyl rip?

That kind of shit should be mentioned on the sleeve. Very bad behaviour by the label if they pass something off as a reissue when it's just a rip.

I admit I have not heard this reissue but the (illegal) .wav file of the original vinyl press will do me for now, thank you all the same.

Why would I want a vinyl rip, digitally encoded, back onto vinyl? Beyond belief!

Really outstanding production.

Too bad it distorts a lot during the end of both versions on the original pressing (also the dub has a strange delay around 6 minutes which is cut after a few seconds..)

The 2014 Archivio Fonografico Moderno/Mannequin pressing of this amazing track seems to be remastered from the original vinyl release.
The original pressing is notoriously breaking up in the high frequency spectrum towards the end of both sides. I suspect this is a vinyl mastering issue (sounds like it) but it might be in the recording. This artefact is present in the repress as well. Maybe the original recordings were unavailable, lost or in even worse condition than an original vinyl release.
In a way the deterioration of the quality adds to the absolute drama of the track itself: everything seems to be falling appart in a very melancholic way.
At least the release is available again for a more affordable price than what originals go for nowadays.

The quality of the pressing is really poor and distorts more and more towards the end! Big dissappointment!!
