I started listening to Italo Disco in the mid-80s, mostly the Spanish "Sabadell" sound ... and then I came across this collection. I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed it. In there I can fairly see the roots of the later Italo Disco sounds I am so familiar with. In a sense, they feel more "genuine," relying much less on fancy production gimmicks and more on the "soul" of the music. Equally solidly classic and experimental. From the quirky and very danceable "Girl On Me" by Amin Peck, to the humble "Droid" from Mito which presages the classic "Laser" or "Space" Disco from later days. It's phenomenal, and I can imagine the disco clubs packing up back in the day.

I highly recommend this collection for any lover of Italo Disco music who wants to have a taste of a simpler time, works which paved the way for some of the greatest dance hits ever.

A very well assembled collection of early 12" from the important ITALO DISCO period 1982.

Great collection of killers no fillers. All top quality early italo and italo boogie tracks compiled here. This should be an instant purchase if encountered for a reasonable price in a good condition.
