CD Reviews

Real Thing
Robert J. Santaniello | Flushing, NY USA | 10/11/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I don't where the other reviewer got his ideas from, but this CD is essentially the original Jiani full length "Hit n' Run Lover" LP issued in Europe circa 1981 with a few extra "bonus" remixes thrown in. I had the original vinyl, and at least one of the "Run" mixes present here is indeed the Matra issued original. This makes sense since Unidisc was the parent company of Matra and they have issued what is rightfully called a "reissue". The confusing thing is there were so many mixes of "Run" and "Mercy" issued in the 80's from various companies few people knew what was "original" and what was not. Besides the mixes here, there were some great mixes on Moby Dick of both "Run" and "Mercy" in extended versions, not to mention the housified "Run" mix that appeared on Passion in the UK in the mid 80's. I think the reviewer has this release confused with the Hot Records CD issued in the 90's that did feature Ian Levine re-recorded versions of Jiani's hits (and was pretty bad). Buy this CD for "Mercy" and the original "Hit n' Run Lover". Some other tracks are OK, like "Ask Me," but for the most part they're filler compared to the magnificence of "Run" and "Mercy"."
DON'T BUY THIS!

"If you're looking for "Hit'n'Run Lover, don't buy this. This CD is a ghastly remix by Ian Levine from the mid 90's. The original is such a fantasic, vibrant, uplifting record, how could anyone do this to it?"
