I'm gonna bring back this old post from 2010 and again from 2013 for those of you who didn't get a chance to download this masterpiece.

Gigi Vavassori, Salvatore Pileggi, Sergio Bonzanni are Sensitive. They created some of the most mysterious, melodic, synthesized, sheer Italo Disco magic of all time. I really can't be more enthusiastic about these tracks as they are for me the pinnacle of a genre I hold so dear.

I've only heard of two singles. The 1984 12" release on Gong Records Italy "Driving" and it's 1985 follow-up double A side follow-up on Sensation records Italy "Give Me" and "Don't Stop". At the risk of sounding banal I'm just going to let the music speak for itself.

I sold a copy of Driving for a friend of mine who happened to have two. It stopped just sort of $600.00 in Ebay. I've actually seen copies go for near a grand. Imagine if someone had a sixth sense about this record and bought a hundred copies and kept them sealed in a box somewhere just waiting to unleash them!

In 2009 a previously unreleased version was released.  When I figure out which external HD I put it on I''ll refresh the link.

Wow! Thank you so much for sharing these ultra-rare Italo tracks, expecially in such high quality! Often when I finally get to hear records that go regularly for hundreds/thousands of pounds I am usually disappointed and I realised that price and quality are not always synonymous....however these three tracks are a total exception, definitely some of the best Italo I have ever heard!

I saw on Discogs that a previously unreleased version of Driving was released last year, thats going for nine/ten pounds so for now I will probably content myself with a copy of this!

PS the Discogs times for the two versions of 'Driving' from the original release must be way out, one is nearly 8 minutes and the other 5 1/2 minutes whereas the version you shared clocks up at 7 minutes...its things like this that keep me awake at night!

I take it the shorter version of Driving is an instrumental? It does not say on Discogs.
