I am a fan of Spagna and of Cherry Red re-releases but I won't be buying this one...,
This review is from: Dedicated To The Moon (Audio CD)
...because as someone already said here, there is a lot missing here from that period (1986-1987).
The Easy Lady single remix, its extended versions, there are at least 2 of them that I know of, and only one is included here and of course the Dance dance dance single remix and its extended as well. Even though it's true that they must be pretty rare because all those years I've never saw any of them ever released on any compilation of the 80's (are those tracks definitively lost or what ?!).
And it's also true that Every girl and boy (even though it was another of her U.k. hits) has no place in being here since it was released only a year later after this album and only should be included in a "You are my energy" (her 2nd album) re-release with the 2nd album singles "I Wanna be your wife" and "This generation" !
I love Spagna and I love the Cherry Red label (and I am very thankful for a lot of their re-releases : the Kim Wilde albums especially) but I'm not about to give away my hard-earned money for a release like that unless it is done in a proper way. A shame though because this album is really really rare.

Dance,Dance,Dance was never released in the uk neither was This Generation SO maybe Cherry Red licensed the tracks from sony uk and not sony italy who will most probably have the masters for these 12" mixes that where released in the rest of Europe

This label has not shy-ed away from mastering from vinyl, so I see no reasong to omit the maybe-misplaced masters for all those extra versions of Easy Lady and Call Me. I see abosolutely no point in including Every Girl And Boy on this album. Also, this album is not as rare as someone makes it out to be.

It is not easy to find the original copy of the 1987 cd and you can pay silly money to get it. Apart from fans of her music (or new fans interested in her older work), not many people would buy her second album now so actually I personally think it is a nice touch to include her 3rd UK top 75 hit on this cd along with it's b-side. This release actually exists only because fans of her music requested it and made available certain 12" records to be included on the disc.

So, does that mean that, yet again Cherry Red are using vinyl as a master source?
