Thanks for sharing this! Sounds a little bit more transparent and three dimensional, the original. I suppose even if you have access to original master tapes, time will have had its toll on any source. And the process is gonna be a different one. Nothing ... See full review

"Dance, Dance, Dance" is beautiful, obviously a blatant rip-off of Universal Robot Band’s "Dance & Shake Your Tambourine" but in a very good way! Even better than the original due to Miss Misty’s beautiful vocals.

Why was this released as "Journey Into Love" after the initial release as "Magic Fly"? And why with totally different credits? Does anybody know the story behind this? Legal fights?

No official release = usually no official master tapes. This means 9 times out of 10 that somebody ripped a copy of the vinyl to a computer and had it (if at all) semi-professionally mastered and then probably semi-professionally pressed (because it is ... See full review

I have this record but it has these labels of "Paris Casablanca 1" pressed on it: https://www.discogs.com/Paris-Casablanca-1-A-Love-At-First-Sight/master/746338 – anyone else experienced that? Obviously the same (sub)label …

My copy of this is, apart from the labels, actually this record: https://www.discogs.com/Metropole-Miss-Manhattan/release/725425 – Anyone else? Since Heroes of North America seems to be a sub-label of P.B.I I suppose they screwed up some label/master ... See full review

Can anybody comment on the sound quality of the remastering? It’s probably better than the typical inofficial tin can sounding disco 12" bootleg, however I wonder if the mastering job was done properly and with respect to the original’s dynamics. I fear ... See full review

Can’t upload any label scans right now, but this is a green label pressing as oposed to the white UK version. Superb laid back, smokey hammond laden instrumental on the b-side. A-side is neglectable muzak style.

“Toxic Free” is an instrumental surf cover of Britney Spear’s hit song “Toxic”, great record that hits a crude 60's garage instrumental surf style in a good way.

Thanks for the insight. And true, could have been hit, but then there is gazillions of great boogie/disco tracks from that area that would qualify for that. Just a great period for music with high quality standards I guess.

Interesting theory, fetching a relatively cheap copy of a quite rare record, setting up a fake auction/bid to push a pseudo „market value“ and then pushing your copy straight afterwards while the „new“ price level is still in people’s heads.
