The sounds of Italo disco seem to have a timeless quality about them. Take Peter Richard's "Walking In The Neon" for instance. Nearly 30 years on from its original release this Italo club classic will still kill it on the dancefloor today. The mix of mid 80s New Order and hi-NRG legends Patrick Cowley and Bobby Orlando moves forward with a driving bass line and plenty of hooks. Peter Richard was an alias of producer and vocalist Walter Beinat. For "Walking In The Neon" he teamed up with the production duo of Gigi Farina and Franco Rago, best known for their projects 'Lectric Workers, Decadance, Expansives, and Wanexa. The track includes some help from other notable Italian disco legends like Celso Valli of Macho, Azoto and Tantra fame, as well as Chuck Rolando, member of Italian disco group Passengers. Dark Entries has done a fantastic job with the repress, including remastering from George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley and a stellar pic sleeve. Pressed on neon orange vinyl, as it was when originally released in 1985.
