THE AUDIO on the 2015 'remasters', both vinyl and CD sound horrendous. It's over-compressed to the point it hurts your ears, no dynamic range, distortion with scratches and pops on some songs (which suggests it's taken from vinyl) and for some reason, there are cuts in the nearly every track where it seems to have been edited due to tape damage, with poor attempts to fix this with bodged loops, where a segment of the track has been badly copy/pasted (evident on No Regrets, not present on the original), what's that all about? Not a good reissue at all, go for an original (as usually is the case).

Excellent piece of work, I agree, nevertheless it looks to me that "H" Friend is short-sampled version of Moroder's From Here To Eternity.

"The Disco Club LP" by Black Devil is so amazing that I just had to write a review about it. This is a very obscure release by one of the earliest of the euro disco artists who would later personify an entire genre. Originating from France, this release developed a major cult following all over Europe during the last 25 years and it is now considered to have been a major influence on many of the early 80's italo disco and euro disco artists who emerged on the scene shortly after this release. As for this LP - it's a 2-sided vinyl release with 6 songs all having a copycat sound effect that makes each song sound similar to the others. The only difference is a few tweeks to the synthesizer, the speed of the drum machine's BPM and some different vocals which ultimately allowed the amateur artists behind the Black Devil act to create their one and only LP. The songs were all recorded in real-time and all begin with that dark and wicked drum beat that sounds less like a disco song but more like the procession of a tribal ceremony in the jungles of Africa. Very bizarre, very rare, and very good music. Get it if you can!
