          Just like Dog In The Night, another winner from the 1980s that showed what good music is still all about. 10 out of 10!

              Both songs are absolutely amazing! Livin up and Stop make for the best 12" ever made! Really is annoyingly rare but is worth trying to find! One of the best disco records ever in my opinion!

                    Bought by me in the record shop in 1983, february (i was 15 y.o.). I loved more 'Stop' at that time because in that particular moment it took to my mind some old disco releases and listening to it in that period (in Italy) it was quite unusual. Anyway at the actual time they are both amazing tunes! Yes, timeless!

                      It's not an error that this release has so many 5/5 votes. It's also not an error that so many people want this 12". "Livin' Up"/"Stop" by B.W.H. is probably one of the most powerful and influential italo disco releases of all time. It's no wonder that such a great set of songs is so hard-to-find - that's because we're talking about an extremely limited release, and you know how it goes: the best stuff is always the hardest to find! "Livin' Up" is a dark and very deep electro italo track, while "Stop" has that uplifting, happy synth-line added to it, more suitable for the dancefloor. Both songs have great female vocals and an excellent drumbeat. Both songs are synthesizer fantasies and go well for the breakdancer in you or for whatever purpose you can imagine. A++
