Just ordered the Dark Entries re-mastered repress. Assuming its official/licensed? In the release notes they talk about the low-fi nature of the original recording (inc. the intro), so I'm curious to hear what their remaster sounds like. Anyone know if it has been remastered from a vinyl copy or the original tapes? (There's another 2016 'official replica' version listed on discogs on the Private label, that suggests it was made using the original tapes - but it doesn't appear to have been released yet?)

An amazingly rare record. Last one sold was on ebay back in February (2013) and sold for over $200. But wow, its worth it! This song is something I really wish I could own. Such a brilliant atmosphere. It's like Jean Michel Jarre was involved at some point. This is one of my favorite Italo songs. Probably my most favorite song full stop.

For all the hype it's recieved, I'm surprised no one has commented on this track already. In my humble opinion, the track is an excellent example of early italo disco. One of the first Rago-Farina prodcutions, the song is a deep electro based track (note the 808 drum at the beginning) with a distinct female vocal singing throughout. Althought half of the vocals/lyrics are impossible to understand, this remains one of the deepest italo disco songs due to its dark and mysterious nature. Franco Rago and Gianluigie Farina would go onto produce much better songs, but no other would create such a captivating atmosphere.
