Music lover, record collector and occasional DJ.

please note: I will occasionally sell items from my collection to fund other purchases.
If you contact me about buying something please include the price you are offering.
If there is no item available in the marketplace, your offer should be close to the highest previously paid.

also: sorry but for the moment I'm unable to provide any recordings from my collection...
not opposed to the idea (that music should be shared and enjoyed), just not enough time.

Discogs' current approach seems to be blocking a release from sale upon receiving any legal notice (valid or not), without making a investigation of their own.. "Guilty until proven innocent"

Hidden on the b-side, "Entertaining My Goth" is one of the sickest tracks released in 2017... addictive since the first time I heard it.
The rest reminds me a lot of Al Ferox / Dancefloor Killers (who are probably due for revival also).

This guy was the owner of potentially the most incredible male hair in the 80s! (check back cover for further evidence)

PSA: this 7" has the vocal version of "Dancing On A Summernight With You", not the instrumental one that plays in the youtube clip.
The vocals are not bad by any means, just ... smooth

Murky, cheap-sounding production, some keyboard mashing and an amateur vocal, but somehow still enjoyable (and sought after).

Bootleg, but good sound in my opinion (I have compared with the OG).
Most of the UK Italo bootlegs from this time are trash (for example: Crazy Gang), but somehow they got this one right.
Useful as a DJ copy.

The difference between this 'Club Version' and the commercially released one from the following year is like night and day (in favour of this one).
Overall a more subtle arrangement, warmer sound and less rock/new wave influence.

Tough downtempo production almost totally ruined by the awful vocals (and unfortunately no instrumental versions).
It sounds like they tried to emulate African American accents - with predictable results.
A poor companion to the awesome "Girl Don't Cry" ... See full review

This version IS with voiceovers!
Actually quite funny and not overbearing, but the 'music only' version is the one you want if you have the choice.

Wall to wall dark and moody house jams, "In The City" is a standout but really all tracks are great.
Liz Torres' aggressive vocals fit perfectly with the tough and grimy production style.
Should be considered amongst the best house albums of all time.

It gives me no pleasure to write this, but this pressing sounds quite bad: a lot of audible pop and crackle... a shame for such an amazing album.

Still a landmark album for goth kids who like to dance..
not perfect all the way but enough killer tracks to stand the test of time.
pretty much essential thanks to the opener and closer (and a few bangers in between).

Really nice record, one of my favourites from Thomas P. Heckmann, which is saying a lot as I bought so many of his records up till 2001/2002 or so.

For me the sound quality is very "flat" and the gain must be turned to maximum to mix with another record.
Maybe OK for home listening, but near useless as a DJ copy.
My beaten up original pressing is still more enjoyable, even with a lot of crackles.

Bernhard Mikulski of ZYX Records was nothing if not a shrewd businessman.
Most likely he saw a hole in the local market caused by a shortage of available copies and exploited it.
