There's apparently also an Extended Mix version. Nice track as a whole.

Insrumentation of "Gelato" is a rip-off of B.B. & Band's 1983 hit "Hold Me Tight".

You're right. I just confounded it with "Toy Boy". Thanx for sharing it.

The version uploaded on YT by Mothball Rec. doesn't match the one here on the original and promo records as to the A-side. There have been no specifications thus far about this "extended" version by the Australian label.
Please share info.

You were right about this 'mysterious Italian production'. The record has just popped up lately on discogs. It is a Q-Disc of Paolo Nobel with the O.V. of "A Chase" titled "Egypt", the former being almost a carbon-copy of it (chorus sung the same way,... See full review

Very probably indeed. It's because of the beautiful melody I guess this track had been chosen for becoming the hymn of this little soccer club's success. Thanks for sharing the info.

The back cover's tracklisting mentions for B5 Apple Band instead of Sisma given above. As the cassette, the only original release for this comp, lists the same, it seems therefore the mention of Sisma is incorrect.

Pleasure renewed here with the continuation of this outstanding Euro-Disco collection. This 31st opus lives up to the previous ones in terms of sound quality and selection of tracks. Maybe the only glitch with "Dance With Me" given the version... See full review

An absolute masterly production. As an aside, the track B3's mention seems to have been omitted on the label.

Partially inspired as it sounds by Donna Summer "I Feel Love", "Disco Vampirella" keeps nevertheless iis own appeal with an addition of personal sections and will remain a sought-after record complete with the other track.

Probably true. Indeed McCoy's strange voice could illustrate what you're just saying. That could also confirm Deca's nickname of Italo "alchemist"...

A great tracklisting once again; "How Did You Come Into My Life" nonetheless is not performed by Pascalin but by Yvonne Koomen mostly known for her smasher "Last Night".

The only glitch with this exquisite tracklisting is about A3's and B5's durations. There was enough magnetic tape left on each side's end to include the full length original versions of these 2 tracks. Indeed, 2' of blank tape remain on A-side, which... See full review

A nice sound quality on this special birthday edition.
If the original vocoder version, the one featured in the epic LP Angelo Segreti's, is the best of the batch, A4/B4 comes right after it. Indeed, Mary McCoy's weirdly tuneless performance adds to a... See full review

A-side is featured in the limited edition series Italo Disco - The Lost Legends Vol.7 (released in 2017).

A nice Euro-Disco track made in Spain that very probably inspired some parts of the Euro-beat single Sophie "My World" released the following year by the famous label from Brescia Time Records.

"Stress" is a cover of G & M "Don't Let You Down";
"Mirror" is for Fred Ventura "Imagine Me".

Really a pity they didn't include the first two tracks from the CD comp Slinky Wizard "Lunar Juice (Hallucinogen Moon Strudel Remix)" and Pleiadians "Zeta Reticuli (Lazy Spiral Remix)". If they decided apparently to put only one track per side they... See full review

As to the arrangements, an inspiration from the Canadian Hi NRG single "No! Mr Boom Boom" by Bodyheat (Sizzle Records - 1987) seems also evident.

Simply can't believe my eyes to see this Angelo Segreti's jewel coming up on its own.
Does "Sempre E Solo Tu" live up to the flip side? Does "Dimmi Bello" last longer than the AS' track?...
And so I guess only a few copies exist somewhere…

B3's vocals "quote" much from the 1986 Euro-Disco track "Blinded By The Light" by Shipra composed by Axel Breitung.

This is a cover version of the fantastic Jacky Cleever's original track released by Cosmic City Music. Albeit very interesting with a very catchy tempo in keeping with the original's, the 7" of JC will remain undoubtedly unbeatable for aeons.

Some unmistakable synth patterns on the flip side seem a tad copied from Harold Faltermeyer's famous soundtrack "Axel F" as well as Koto's "Visitors". Why searching inspiration in others' ideas?...

This alternate unreleased version of the musical alchemist must be terrific! Will it leave the same metaphysical imprint?
