    Greetings, people!

    I am aware this may have been up for discussion before, but I feel it deserves a rejuvenation.

    Name three (3) 12" italo records that are very cheap (price no more than 10 euro), but that you find are must-haves in your collections. Rare or not rare, original Italian releases or other labels don't matter.

    I'm doing this since I would like to know what to get now when I'm about to move and the economy is somewhat strained... ;) There are TONS of cheapos I don't have yet or haven't even heard so...

    OK, I'll go first:
    1. Moonshine - China
    2. Robert Bravo - Love Me Like I Do
    3. Buelo Aris - New York New York/Mr. Pilot

    Who dares to go next? ;)

    We do have a sticky topic of this "cheapos but goodies" but whatever, hm, stuff that is cheap and very good: indeed, there are lots of it

    Madigan - Ice Cold Love (this one is even in my all time top 10)
    Sue Sadlow - My Man
    Twilight - My Mind

    I think all 3 of them are beautiful songs, I love them as much as my hard to find records. I would like to add Video - Somebody too, this one has been very important to me as it was the introduction to Italo for me when I was a kid, my dad used to play that one a lot back then, these synths sounded very futuristic to me, I'd never heard something like that before in my life back then. Even now, it still sounds amazing, that's a record that I would NEVER sell, even if it's dirty cheap :)
  • waxHead over 9 years ago

    My three to start:

    Doctor's Cat - Feel The Drive
    Scotch - Penguin's Invasion
    My Mine - Hypnotic Tango
  • Erotheque over 9 years ago

    R.E.M. (2) - Computer Communication
    Tommy Kelvin - Jungle Bow Wow
    Fun Fun - Give Me Your Love (Remix)

    La_Monte_Old
    Sue Sadlow - My Man

    Agreed. Sue Sadlow - I Will Find My Way is catchy too (except for the Yankee Doodle break down bit).

    Nice topic working_model, I need to do a cheapo run. :)

    I also have to add that euro disco is to be included in this thread also, obviously... ;)
  • narcisco over 9 years ago

    Found Scotch - Penguins' Invasion today (for no more more than 10 euro ;) )
    Is indeed great, I Agree with WaxHead's list.

    3 cheap records that are cheap but great, in my humble opinion:
    Bizzy & Co - Take A chance
    I bought this one because it had an Il Discotto sleeve. Someone had said before that Il Discotto was a great Italo label. So when I saw the sleeve I didn't hesitate. I later found out that is was not a real Il Discotto release, but I really liked the song, and I still do. Recommended cheapo.
    Paul Sharada - Keep Your Love Alive
    A later Discotto release from 1985. Dirt Cheap, but I really like it. My favourite Sharada song for sure.
    Digital Game - I'm Your Boogie man/ With & Without
    Vocoder style coverversion of KC & The Sunshie Band song. Really like it. Instrumental With & Without is great too. I maybe like this even better.

  • Jogi over 9 years ago

    is it also ok when i name 3-4 goodies which i got more than cheap..
    because got them for free! But its really long ago..

    * Brand Image - Love in a summer night - (personal gift from Mauro Farina together with D.Connection & Thomas T.)

    * Karl Olivas - Follow me (was planned as a trade, guy has sent the record and then disappeared by any reasons..)

    * Bryan Dalmini - Can you tell me (from a friend who does not like italo at all)

    * Myxoma - Don´t runaway (got it from a nice record-friend as a gift for the birth of my daughter)

    very rare and lucky moments in 20 years of italo-life. :-)

  • narcisco over 9 years ago

    very nice catches. The only one I got for free was Gaznevada - I.C. Love Affair. Which is very nice though.

    Another cheap but great record:
    Cariocas - Batida
    Can be bought for little money nowadays, even under 10 euros.

    simoncioni- susy oh

  • Disco_Segreta over 9 years ago

    my cheap must haves

    Ray Cooper - Breakdown
    Swan - Don't talk about it
    Miko Mission - How old are you?
    Ken Laszlo - Hey Hey Guy
    Primadonna - Flashing on the floor

    some of these are late-italo disco (85-86), but most are amazing IMHO (particularly Swan, Primadonna and RYN'O)

  • Disco_Segreta over 9 years ago

    @ Italo-neon:

    Swan - Don't Talk About It : as said, this one is great, particularly the instrumental in the chorus part "o-o-o-o-o x2" and the then the synth solo that goes crazy.

    I aslo agree on Time - Shaker Shake, very nice and Styloo, which to me is a total masterpiece: not only the instrumental flipside "pretty perversion" is amazing, but, contrarily to what happens to most italo recs, even the vocal version is gorgeous!

    this one too is incredibly beautiful, and still changes hands for about 10 euros

    This one is nice to have (bought it recently) and still can be found cheap:

    Rosko - You Can Go Away

    On discogs the genre says "synthpop" but itreally sounds italo disco to me...

    B.t.w. I wanna thank "kroko" (also user on discogs) for tipping me on this one.

  • Ianstan over 8 years ago

    Tabu D'Apache - Colours
    Parsifal - Carillon
    First Cut - Tell Me, Tell Me
    Tom Jackson - Rise Up To The Moon (Not really Italo-Disco as much as Synth-Pop, but it's a really nice song)
    Ago - Computer
    Jo Lewis - Hot Love
  • Aftering_at_my_way over 8 years ago

    Aftering_at_my_way edité over 8 years ago
    sandra robinson - music & motion

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BeIEtg1P7U

    But on the record there is the dub version (If I remember well) which is really better then this version. Very similar but with little lesser vocal parts and no sax, just the good parts are kept, which is even more heavenly.
    Well, depending on what you prefer of course.
    A masterpiece, that's for sure, for a little price.
  • kroko over 8 years ago

    Here is also a nice euro track.. maybe a bit sweet but i like it.

    For U - Highway to china

    http://www.discogs.com/For-U-Highway-To-China/release/1038461

    It could also fit in the topic " disco fox "German italo disco "
  • wiz_of_oz over 8 years ago

    This tune rockx!

    The Clocks - Wake Up

    Buy it cheap.
  • ryosuke63 over 8 years ago

    Wake Up is indeed awesome, and definitely a great buy at only $4 (minimum).
  • alant1000 over 8 years ago

    Hubert Kah, Limousine - not strictly italo but german italo wave (if such a thing exists) - anyway, yours for 50 cents! Or 1 euro if you want a nice 7" copy. Utter madness, this is a great track!
