Italian composer-arranger Joey Mauro has united his classic Italo sound together with vocals by four different 80s Italo stars. Flashback Records is now presenting the results of these collaborations on two different vinyl releases (FLA 1005 & FLA 1004), both named as "Joey Mauro Presents". The first part includes new tracks from Fred Ventura and Clock On 5. "You And I" (by Fred Ventura) is a classic mid-80s Italo track with more peaceful verse which grows through the bridge to a powerful refrain. Fred's voice is the same as 30 years before and together with Joey's vintage synth sounds, it's easy to imagine this track to be made in 1984. Clock On 5 is back with its "head man" Raffaele Fiume. "Love Kills" (Mayerling Pt. 2) brings back the more romantic side of Fiume productions. A perfect track for the darkening evenings of autumn. The second part introduces you two big names "from the curtains". Rago is better known as a member of a legendary team together with his partner G. Farina ('Electric Workers, Expansives, Decadance, Atelier Folie). This time Rago has given his rugged vocals to a dark wavish track called "Rusty Wings". The name Remo Zito doesn't necessarily ring the bell for a normal Italo fan, but when hearing that he's "the vocalist of Via Verdi", nobody has to wonder who is he. The track "Secret Agent" has a lots of power and energy, and spiced with Remo's perfect vocals, it's a fine piece of Italo music, also for the dance floors.
