Flood by Delanua Super Early Italo Disco Track

Delanua' is Domenico Ricci, who later achieved great italo disco success using the moniker Joe Yellow. The tracks as Delanua' are seminal early italo disco classics.  As a matter of fact Flood was only the 5th release on what was to become one of the most important italo disco labels in history, DiscoMagic.  There are some real rock style guitar licks that are reminiscent of Goblin on Flood.  In any case in 1980 italo disco hadn't become such a sensation and was still to form it's most definitive style.  This record does show however that Italy was going to be a force to be reckoned with in the field of dance music in the 80's.  DOWNLOAD FLOOD

Serving a new wave look

The tracks recorded as Joe Yellow were much more of the poppy italo disco sound that was able to cross-over onto pop charts around the world, Lover to Lover and and Take my Heart are just a couple Joe Yellow classics.  As Bob Salton he recorded the seminal spacey italo disco track Starknight which I have blogged about in the past.
