Re: The Almost-Complete Euromach Extended - a.k.a. So Close and yet So Far!

At the time when most A-Beat-C, Delta and Double (pre-SCP) vinyls were made, I would bet that most producers were still on analog or early digital transition. I would say that maybe they changed into digital mid-2000s. Not counting them because of the format and the entry level is totally acceptabl...

Re: The Almost-Complete Euromach Extended - a.k.a. So Close and yet So Far!

Some of those are released online or vinyl already like Zorro Zorro and Slave To The Rhythm. You should check again. I don't count vinyl. Dire quality, and especially awful when you consider the source material is pure digital. I'd take the megamix edits on CD over that. If they're available to buy...

The Almost-Complete Euromach Extended - a.k.a. So Close and yet So Far!

I've gotten back into my old Eurobeat collection in a big way lately... which has also spurred me onto filling in the gaps in the Euromach Extended collection I was trying to build but which only ever really got to gathering up most of Vibration and some Saifam + Hi NRG. It's amazing just how much h...

Re: SCP's Eurobeat Kudos Series Vol.9+ Unreleased & Extendeds Discussion

"Easy Come & Easy Go" originally appeared on SEB 198 in megamix only.
Almost all the rest are 170s/180s era stuff, so they're at least getting their full extendeds for the first time - but yeah, there's nothing new as such.

Any news on whether SCP have located the missing tracks yet?

Re: SCP's Eurobeat Kudos Series Vol.9+ Unreleased & Extendeds Discussion

I wonder if the fades in these tracks are there because they knew Avex didn't plan to use them in full, and so didn't worry about ending the song?

Similarly might be the reason Solid Gold simply stops rather than ending properly.

Re: The road to Super Eurobeat 250....

Can't say I'm surprised by this news - that Eurobeat as a genre lasted as long as it did in Japan was an amazing feat, but all things fade eventually. I'll be forever grateful for having this super-energised genre be part of my life. And goodness knows there's an absolute ton of back catalogue to en...

Re: Sad Eurobeat songs

I suspect a ton of Norma Sheffield's tunes could be considered 'sad' - but these two stood out for me (both from the 100s interestingly - a melancholy spell at A Beat C?):

Re: How are some labels releasing old tracks independently and others aren't

Is it really so hard for Avex for just stick out a bunch more iTunes releases of catalog eurobeat tracks they own the rights to? I'd still love to hear numerous Euromach series tracks that have never had an outing in anything other than poor vinyl rips (e.g. Lucya / The Look Of Love).

I used to frequent here but these days I only pop in once in a blue moon. The truth is I just stopped listening to Eurobeat all that often, though I do dig back in occasionally and listen to all my old favourites. Think the biggest thing that drew me away was I just stopped liking the new stuff comi...

I want high quality digital copies - taking a digital song and transferring it (badly) to vinyl is a massive downgrade - I might as well listen to the YouTube videos if I was happy to settle for that.

Fireball / Ace Warrior Touch Me Here Touch Me There / Go Go Girls You can buy those two in Extended form on iTunes from the special collections Avex released several years ago. EDIT: I compiled a list of all the Euromach songs that hadn't yet been released in Extended on iTunes/Juno/CD back in 2009...
