From the same team as the phenomenally successful Disco Discharge series, we’re proud to introduce Disco Recharge – a brand new series which will highlight individual artists and producers and provide further depth to the world of serious Disco music. Where possible the albums will be special editions: packed with bonus tracks, mixes and rarities. Each album will be lovingly compiled and researched by Mr Pinks with sleeve notes by Alan Jones – co-author of the bestselling book ‘Saturday Night Forever.’ As per usual, the Disco Recharge packages will be beautifully designed and will fit right alongside the existing 16 Disco Discharge packages.
First out of the block is a 2CD special edition of the 1977 French Disco classic ‘Voyage’ by Voyage. This album was a worldwide smash on its initial release and features the global Euro Disco mega hits ‘From East To West’ and ‘Lady America.’ This special edition includes the original segued album as well as the incredibly rare first volume of the ‘Special Instrumental’ album which includes much in-demand instrumental versions of tracks from ‘Voyage’ as well as the follow up album ‘Fly Away.’ An absolute godsend to today’s generations of DJ’s, Remixers and Re-Editors. In addition Disc 2 of this special edition is packed with alternative mixes, edits and other rarities including the pre Voyage rare grooves ‘West Coast Drive’ and ‘Please Love Me Again’ by V.I.P. Connection – massively collectible in their own right. All Tracks transferred from the original tapes. The majority of the bonus cuts have never been released on CD before – making this Disco Recharge special edition the ultimate version of this landmark album.
This is the first volume in the Disco Recharge: Voyage re-issue programme. Watch out for 2CD special editions of ‘Fly AWay’, ‘One Step Higher’ and a 3CD deluxe version of ‘Voyage 3’ which will all be released this year.
The Disco Discharge series is now the best-selling and most critically acclaimed Disco series in the world and Disco Recharge will be a perfect compliment to all the homes that already house this magnificent series.
