"Flying Dream" by Frank Hino is a powerful italo disco release on the rare and sexy Sensation Records label. I would like to consider this song more in the category of Germany's Hi-NRG that began in 1985 (e.g. Joy or Michael Bedford to be specific). The male vocals are very well done, which leads me to believe that this is a far superior italo disco song, as most italo vocals are slurred to the point of not understanding what the singer is even saying. Not in this song. Using some of the most simple instruments and sounds effects on an analog synth never sounded so great! Additionally, as simple and repetitive as it is, the drum machine work in this song is absolutely fabulous. I wouldn't mind seeing Mr. Frank Hino record this one in real-time in 1985, as the beat is so straightforward that editing was probably not even needed. I love simple and enjoyable italo disco. And the fact that this is quite a rare gem only adds to the omnipresence this 12" deserves in the eyes of 80's euro/italo collectors.
