6 years ago this month we released our very first record, Eleven Pond’s “Bas Relief”.

Today we reissue three of our favorite Italo disco records made by the husband and wife production duo of Manlio Cangelli and Lorella Ghilardi. First up is Blue Russell’s “I Wanna Fly Away.” That track was originally issued in 1984 on Disco Magic Records. Ghilardi also contributed backing vocals on Clay Pedrini’s “New Dream,”.
