The holy grail for any Gigi D'Agostino collector (together with the "Music: An Echo Deep Inside" BXR-single of course). A very hard to find item and only very limited pressed. Don't let you deceive about the "have this" quantity, because some of them were from inactive users who put them in their have-list years ago and already sold it or only have the MP3-version of it (in earlier times there were no MP3-release in the discogs-database).

Well... it is not absolutely cleared, how many CDs exactly were made. Some people guess it has a circulation of 500 copies only. But It could be (a bit) more, because the compilation "Le Voyage '96" and his first album "Gigi D'Agostino" were sold about 80.000 times in Italy and received even gold status (and these CDs are also "quite" rar)! But the Gin Lemon E.P. otherwise was mainly distributed in vinyl (approximently 10.000 lp-copies) and the CD-version was just a solution for handfull visitors at the "Ultimo Impero" discotheque. Gigi D'Agostino was here resident DJ from '93 to '98 and some people bought their copies directly at the disco.

Since I've started to collect Gigi D'Agostino CDs at the beginning of 2005 (7 years now) I only saw the Gin Lemon E.P. (CD) 8 times for sale. The cheapest one with EUR 150 and the most expensive with EUR 945!

So, why in the f***ing hell should someone pay so much for a single CD with 13 Track in it?!

Well, first of all it's fair to say, that this E.P. is one of the most rare and coveted CD-release all time.

Most of these tracks are only on this E.P. available (and here with CD-quality - yay!) So many great and powerfull Progressive tracks have been forgotten after that E.P. Merely My Dimension and Gin Lemon itself were released on the following album L'Amour Toujours.

It's more than just a E.P. of Gigi D'Agostino, it's also a great contribution of the Media Records and BXR-team. People like "Mauro Picotto", "Andrea Remondini", "Mario Scalambrin" and "Roberto Guiotto" were involved in that project - all great names of the Progressive Trance and Euro House scene.

Great tracks like "Gin Lemon", "Tuttobene", "My Dimension", "All In One Night" and "Living In Freedom" makes my day - every day! And funny tracks like "Locomotive" (...who said "Open Your Mind?!), "Rumore Di Fondo", "Bam" and the Mario Scalambrin Remix of "Music (An Echo Deep Inside)" makes me always smile :).

A great Progressive E.P. and I'm finally a proud proprietor of this one, thus also have a piece of italian music history in my collection.

Ohh, and for anyone, who tries to ask me, if I'm willing to sell this one, I can only say... and I think Charlton Heston said it best:

"...FROM MY COLD, DEATH HANDS!"
