Obsessed by vinyl, psychedelia, audio-engineering and technical stuff. Sadly unrealized musician and producer, and neither DJ... yet.

I have two copies of this. Both skips ahead wildly at peak of side A, running on a Technics SL1200 and Ortofon 2M bronze at the recommended tracking force of 1.5g with same as antiskate. I had to twist all the way to 3g antiskate to keep it in place, ... See full review

This is a remarkable label. I've been supporting it for years and the output lately has been always up to my tastes, quality stuff, best mailorder service ever. Thanks Andy!

I really dig this album. Dark and lonely one-man-band otherworldly stuff, I got straight into the feelin of what, I believe, this listening experience was meant to be. Although there are some rather depressing lo-fi strung out tunes which spoiles it down ... See full review

I took this LP from Imprec out of curiosity with last AMT album, there were some good words about it. And i have to say i'm seriously impressed by this one, it's much stoner-driven which is not my preference but it's catchy and pounding, raw, heavy yet ... See full review

Nice album of old fashioned beatdown garage psych rock a-la-13th Floor Elevators on The Seeds. Sounds vintage, at the verge of lo-fi. Recommended.

I can't say the same, mine has some filling or worn-out stamper issues, at times it crackles without reason. The colored vinyl compound is grainy so there's a mild hiss. And slight warp. This is GZ, it's ok, not outstanding.

Let it run, prices will go down eventually, there is some guys thinking to get cash out of it. Or just get the black one from bandcamp.

Maybe i got a bad copy but really it sounds distorted and panned on the left channel. It's visible on record groove that there is something wrong, maybe some filling issues. A pity.

I have a copy which is missing the bass clef symbol. I suspect this may have been pressed by EMI in Italy which may have being equipped to press DMM cuts, which i believe went in production by 1985.

This album is an Italian Prog masterpiece. Great arrangements and performance, blending 12strings acoustic folk with early synthesizers (I think it's a Minimoog), organ over a superb rhythmic section. Lyrics are pure poetry. The album is relatively ... See full review

A spaced out rock mini-opera, to me it draws clear inspiration from The Who concept-acts such as Tommy, shifted to a more dramatic psych/kraut sound. This is a great album indeed and maybe mostly unknown, much recommended though.

Great album I took out mostly at random from Juno. Intense spaced out vibes throughout, even with a dub piece, ending up into the masterpiece 'Epitaph'. There are new-wave influences, indie/shoegaze clichés, garage riffage all mixed up in a psychedelic ... See full review

Likely went sold out and now speculators came out, like worms after the rain... Just don't feed them, support the band (they deserve it) instead of greedy retailers.

Quite remarkable as being made by one man alone. Spacey and laid back moody psychedelic vibes with layers of analog synthesizers. Maybe unknown to most, but recommended.

This clearly an italian pressing, and all copies currently on the marketplace are from italy as well. Also note label layout and company sleeve is the same as this release Bumblebee Unlimited / Jachy* - Love Bug Everybody Dance / Sun Sun Sun
posted a comment on Various - Discoh Tracks '82. about 1 year ago
Nice compilation but they cut out all the bass to have 25+ minutes per side, provided those durations are real. Needs the bass knob on the mixer all the way up.
(btw i don't think this was actually released in '82, it may be late 80's or early 90's).

I have a few of this, everything sourced from CD and sounds very clean, and why in the world a remastering would be necessary?. Artwork is well done, at least he/they put some effort into it. All of this paid very cheap so i really doubt they got any ... See full review

This may be an underrated album. Yet quite psychedelic and evidently inspired by Beach Boys / Brian Wilson, it has fine arrangements and a very 'prog' edge, though the mix is not well balanced so the recording itself doesn't actually shine. Oddly a track ... See full review
