Product Description

CD Description

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 best selling 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.

At last we have a comprehensively expanded release of these cult disco gems on Disco Recharge. I was so looking forward to listening to these after hearing the great sound on the 2009 Discharge releases from Demon Music Group's sub-label, Harmless Records. Included on this new release, amongst other rarities, is the first of rare 1978 special instrumental albums of tracks from this album Voyage and the follow up, Fly Away, given to DJ's for promotional use.

So it was to my utter disbelief and sickening shock, when on playing this expanded release that I found the recordings have been ruined by someone post master tape transfer having added destructive loudness and EQ. I find listening painful, headache and listener fatigue experienced due to overwhelming loud frequencies. I notice high frequencies have been clipped and the girls vocals and the base noticeably begin to break apart at times and are continually distorted due to levels made too loud by the mastering. My ears hurt and I have a headache after a minute of listening at my normal volume level. I turn the volume control right down to background music level, but I am unable to turn down the LOUDNESS. The levels of the vocals are still 'shouting' and base booming, each of which the sound begins to break up at times.

I then spin the 1978 vinyl pressing and 1993 U.S. CD pressing my ears no longer hurt, I don't get fatigued. I enjoy hearing the dynamics of the original recordings which can be heard in the 1978 and 1993 pressings, but this has been killed in the 2012 release. I'm frustrated I can't enjoy listening to any of the tracks on 2012 release. But I'm not a moaning audiophile. I know when my ears hurt and when I get a headache.

The old official cd-r edition has a far better sound than this. It's too much compressed in favor of bass frequencies and most of the electronic effects are overshadowed. What a pity!

I was so looking forward to the release of this CD, but I can't tell you how disappointed I am with the sound quality. Loud and compressed? Don't ask! Having bought all but one of Harmless' Disco Discharge series which, overall, has very good sound quality, I was expecting much better than this. Why go to all the effort of gathering 2 CD's worth of material, including unreleased tracks only to ruin it with bad remastering. I don't know if original masters were used, but if they were then it's even more of a travesty.

It's unlikely that Voyage's back catalogue will be released again with so many bonus tracks. So it's a real missed opportunity and I'm sad about that. I'm guessing that the other releases from Disco Recharge will be mastered the same way, but I'm hopeful that someone will listen and not ruin the music with compression. Keeping the dynamic range of the music just sounds so much better and it's the way the music should sound!

I'll be holding out on buying any more releases from Disco Recharge until I read some reviews first. I really want to love this series from Harmless the way I love Disco Discharge but the jury's out at the moment.

Format: Audio CD
Voyage is the title of this fabulous debut album from a European Disco group also called Voyage. This album has an incredible production and still sounds magnificent over thirty years after its conception and release.
Although this album has been released before on CD this new edition brings together all of the original album and associated tracks including instrumental mixes. extended mixes and alternative versions as well as extra tracks from the same recording era. This is a great release as an expanded edition.
Other people have found issues with the sound in this release. I do not find any worrying problem with it myself. However when compared to the previous release on sirocco records label 1993 there is no clear improvement either. But then again it is not strongly inferior either. The best thing over that earlier direct transfer is the expanded nature of the release.
If all you want is the original album and you have the previous CD edition you don't really need this one. However it does have much to offer in its own right and it is nicely presented.
Voyage comes from the Classic Disco era of the mid to late seventies. The album is full of creativity and there are some amazing arrangements.
The album as well as its single releases were a massive hit in the Disco clubs in 1978 and 1979. The singles did chart in countries around the world. In the UK the group had two chart singles in 1978 and 1979, the double A-side, "From East To West" / "Scotch Machine" (the latter song retitled "Scots Machine" because the term "Scotch" is generally considered offensive in Scotland) reached number thirteen in 1978.

From the Harmless/Demon gang who release the excellent Disco Discharge collection comes a new series, Disco Recharge, re-issues of entire classic disco albums loaded with extra tracks, liner notes and memorable images of original cover art.

This first Voyage album by Disco Recharge is an incredible release. It's deliriously exhilarating, exhaustive and exhausting, possibly the most thorough disco album re-issue yet. The sound is excellent on all tracks; it is taken from the original master tapes, except for the extended V.I.P. Connection tracks, which were recreated using the original 7" tapes. (V.I.P. Connection was a group the members of Voyage formed before becoming Voyage.) Assured, confident and aurally lush, Voyage takes listeners and dancers on a discofied 'round the world cruise. This album whetted the world's appetite for Voyage's follow-up career-defining smash album Let's Fly Away [another Disco Recharge release (also available at Amazon) titled simply Fly Away, so be careful to not confuse it with the Hot Productions CD Let's Fly Away].

An Amazing Re-release! 26 Aug. 2012
By David G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just got this in the mail along with Fly Away, the second Voyage album from Disco Recharge. Both sound incredible! I have been listening to this album since its original release and all of a sudden I hear details I missed all this time. I can only compare it to going visually from DVD to Blue Ray. And all the extra songs and instrumentals included over the length of two discs, plus the detail given to its every aspect make these releases a collector's dream. It's easy to see this is a labor of love.
