    Does anyone know the story behind To Simonetti? I wonder if it was Giancarlo Meo's personal tribute to the great man. Sounds like he (Simonetti) was living too much the wild disco life but ultimately together Simonetti is a great guy and 'sticks together just for love.'..
    Sweet tune!

      Solid HiNGR-Italo disco record from 1979, Easy going were ahead of their time for at least 3-4 years! This is still actual tho

        You can have the original made from analog masters for cheap so this bad remastered is useless.

          'Fear' is a funky Italo-Disco classic with sweet vocoders [unfortunately mixed together with original man voice]
