    I bought this gem and I will never regret having done it. I enjoy it from start to finish. It's 80s music, but it sounds so fresh. The combination of electronic and brass instruments is seamless and perfect. I have always thought their Eurovision 1983 entry was ahead of its time, unfortunately not well understood and so underrated back then. Thank you, Minimal Wave and Pas De Deux for this jewel!!!

      Although the presentation of this release is very professional and neat, something must be said about the amount the noise that can be heard, even in the louder passages (perhaps due to the many pauses between the "attacks" of the instruments). I guess this is a side effect of the marble-y or grainy effect of the coloured vinyl. The sound itself compared to LP rips I've heard of the original pressings (the ones from 1982/1983 - PP 026 on Parsley and 6.25 632 on Zip) is a bit on the warm side, which doesn't bother me, but might some. I think it adds a nice touch to the sound.
      DR wise it is generous at 14 for the whole album.

        To Minimal Wave: Thank you for putting this out. Really. It's amazing the care you took to release this fantastic, rare, obscure compilation of Pas De Duex'a music. And the cool light blue vinyl is simply a bonus. A professional affair all around.
