It has arrived! I know for certain there will be one person out there who will be over the full moon regarding my latest purchase! This is a hard release to find. I purchased this off of Discogs. The main reason for purchasing it was the 'German version' only available here. The 'French version' has been re-released before. All the art has been scanned and the CD too. All recordings (@320) are directly from this CDS. I'm currently reselling it, but will be willing to re-record it if you would prefer a WAV file. Ok....Enjoy!

Filling another request. Here's the 2003 Remaster from The Human League's Philip Oakey and the 70's Godfather of Disco, Giorgio Moroder. The famous track being 'Together In Electric Dreams' from the 1984 movie of the same name. Here's a link to some more Discogs info.

Satisfying a request (actually a few) from a year or two ago. I held out on posting this as it still was available (technically still is) and had recently come out. I try to avoid conflicts in that manner. I guess this is a bit of a lazy post as well. I've been damn busy these past few weeks and really haven't settled into my 'redesigned' work zone yet. My issues. Thanks for the patience...again, if you are a daily follower. Enjoy this superb remaster!

07 Saturn Girl 6:27
This has been a work in progress. I was trying to push this out earlier (several requests for it months ago), but the artwork was holding me back. Trust me, you don't want to see my original import copy! Major photoshop/paintshop going on here. My only other issue was the recording of the classic 'Coldcut' mix. I recorded two versions, one version from each promo. Mind you, they are the same. I just hear differences due to the quality of the vinyl itself (or overplayed vinyl). You be the judge. The Coldcut mix was the obvious go to by most DJ's back in 1987-1988. As for the track 'Saturn Girl', well, let's just say it reminds me of Sigue Sigue Sputnik minus the awkward samples and electronics. A bit rough and the vocal is less than desired, but that's just me...lol! Alright, enough then. I hope you all have recovered from your New Years Eve celebrations. I stayed home and blogged. Woot to 2016! Enjoy!

Another request from one of my previous posts. This CD was taken from the 1995 4 CD Box Set 'Welcome To The Techno Club'. It has a slue of the early Boy Records releases on it. Boy Records was another favorite label of mine. You can find the original information regarding this release here.
Thanks again to all of you, my followers, readers and fellow bloggers! Happy New Year! Enjoy!

Just filling a few requests from the comments of my previous Official Techno Club post. Everything should be self explanatory here. ALL the scans and recordings are from my own original release. Enjoy!

If you have put 10 minutes into looking over this blog, you will see that I have a massive love for the late 80's and early 90's German labels 'New Zone', 'Zoth Ommog' and 'Suck Me Plasma'! I have most of their material, I said most, not all. I will post more in the future. As always, my scans/photoshops of the art and my personal recordings from the source material.
This latest post was one of my favorites, outside of the Warp releases and the 'Technopolis' series, from the early 90's. I recently acquired this CD...again! I had sold it years ago and never made a good recording of it. Got this on Discogs. Not to bad price wise either ($32 from Germany) considering it usually sells for $50 and up. So enjoy this now! Most links that used to be up on the internet have long vanished. ALL the art has been scanned.

02 Peek-A-Boo (Two Faced Mix) 6:04
Bought and sold this Ltd. Ed. Numbered Promo 12 Inch within a month time and made 10x what I paid for it. Got to love Discogs! The mixes are pretty nice. I'm certain I would have used them back when I was whipping up the 80's nights I DJ'ed. A nice find, now a nice share...for you! All Art & Recordings are from this actual 12 inch. Enjoy!
Peek-A-Boo: Two Faced Mix
In 1986, I was an art student studying graphic design at an expensive art school. I had no money to speak of, but always chunked together enough cash to buy records, go clubbing and drink. Funny how that works out. One of my purchases, (again on the cheap as all my stories involving record purchases go) was this debut release from 54.40. I had no clue what it sounded like and had no one telling me to go out and buy it. One of those 'I have a few bucks for cheap-o cut out LP's, let's shop' moments. My decision turned out to be aces! It also became a favourite! Only a handful of friends had even heard of them...and they were musicians in local bands. I knew I was in 'it'. Long story short, I played this LP out, wore down the Cassette tape and finally caved into this new fangled thing called a CD...in the long box...anyone remember that? I loved that CD until it broke. Well, this leads up to the 2010 Wounded Bird reissue. Ah, fresh again! Do enjoy this at your own leisure!
Oh, one last quick note...the track 'I Go Blind'...yeah, this is the group that WROTE & RECORDED it 10 years before Hootie covered it!

I wanted to post this earlier, but the artwork I had was scanned by an amateur (me) from years ago. So, I ordered a new one to keep in my 4 A.D. collection. The last one I had was sold. This is to coincide (roughly) with one of my fellow blogger friends' post here 'Themes From Great Cities'. This is the 4 A.D. reissue from 1992. All the Art and recordings are directly from this release. Here's the Discogs link if you need track times and any other info. Enjoy!
