[Rossodisera Records] – RS 65 – Jersey College – Starter
Year: 1986
Music by: Renato Venturiero a.k.a. ”Escargot”, as ”Jersey College”.

First out, from Rocco and in green color with race cars, is this charming eighties Italo-Disco/Synth-pop album with a whole range of great tracks! Both with punchy and more calmer styles.
All tracks are composed by Renato Venturiero (who is also the founder of the label).

Some of it's underscore tunes might be familiar to those who are ”in the know” of mainstream pop/italo-disco from that era;

A5 is an instrumental remix of Lovables - It's Beautiful
B2 is an instrumental remix of Pierrot's Gang - Mexico
B4 is an instrumental remix of Danny Keith - Love Me Again 
(Source: Discogs notes)

Rocco's favorite nominations are; "Peal", "Blue Lake" and "Writer".

Mine's are; ”Starter”, ”Electric Love” & ”Fast Car”.

[Rossodisera Records] - RS 66 - The Reckless - Habitat
Year: 1986
Music by: Fabio de Rossi a.k.a. ”Fabioski”, Marco Petriaggi a.k.a ”Markstone” & Renato Venturiero as ”The Reckless”.

I bought this record out of pure curiosity, and I am very glad that I did.
Just like the cover, it is a similar record to the one above in the overall taste & sound, but mostly punchy rhythmic synth-pop – which is great! Even though the artists call themselves ”The Reckless”, I definitely cannot find any recklessness in any of the tracks!

My three nomination tracks from this one are; ”Rock On The Rocks”, ”Break” & ”Perfect”.

All in all, two very good albums if you appreciate 80's candy.
Albums like these reminds me of why Italian eighties library blows me away.

Me and Rocco would like to wish everyone a happy weekend!

What an immersion in the 80's...
Beautiful, I really enjoyed my listen this morning.
I got a surprise and jumped on my chair cause I've listened to a beautiful track that was reminding me to something I know and I experienced in the past.
I still don't get it, but I'm happy anyway, it's "Fidibus" from Rocco's record.
Rocco, do you know if that track has been used for something related to some tv show or something in the past?

Thank you guys, great shares.

Hello Greta, I'm sorry, I don't know. That track sounds familiar to me too. It could be an instrumental version of a commercial song, like other tracks on "Starter", but I can’t think of anything.
Anyway it is a beautiful track indeed.
