Holy grail italo 45 repressed on 12"! Alex Valentini's 1985 jam "Beautiful Life" may be as famous for its hilarious cover art as it is for the music. The DJ on the cover looks like he's about to pass out at any moment, eyes half-opened and in the uber-relaxed stance, and in no way represents the pumping italo beats contained within. Bulletproof drum programming, driving synth melodies and that slightly-off, non-chalant italo vocal delivery you either love or you loathe are what it's all about. Contains the original 45 radio version, the disco version, and two brand new edits from Italoconnection and Flemming Dalum who modernize the track for contemporary dancefloor play. Shipped as a random mix of black and colored vinyl versions.
