Super Eurobeat 162 is particularly awesome, but everything else has at least more than a few tracks that really stand the test of time.
I think that was the 1st album I bought way back ~ little did I know it was Fausto's only appearance in SEB and Luca's iconic Eurofunk song that was SO out of the blue non-eurobeat sounding, but had something really contagious about it. Awesome record!♩
Well, "Rock'N'Roll Emulation" just samples old Fausto exclamations, I think from "Electro Violence." It's no more of a Fausto appearance than SEB 088's "Captain America," which opens with a clip from his opening monologue in "Armada." He has written some eurobeat songs, like "Now Is the Time" on SEB 081, but I guess he and Leonardi agreed he wasn't a tuneful enough vocalist to really bring as much strength to eurobeat as hyper techno.

That said, I still have a strong hunch that he might be Big Jim on "Why Why," the 1996 production that ended up on Euromach 3. One-time vocalists were pretty rare for Leonardi, and the singer's atypical pronunciations seems like it could be Fausto.

It will always be the decade when the labels were releasing 12 vinyls by the bucket loads. I spent a small fortune on all those records, but worth every penny.

Oh my gosh ~ this is the 1st time I'm hearing Captain America, woah what a good track. :o 💗

Regarding Big Jim on Why Why .. I recall reading some old Japanese blog either by NRG Express or Ryota from Oresama-blog or maybe it was an LJ post, but it's not Fausto as lead vocalist; you can really notice when he sings "Make yourself the question".

Guio's a native New Yorker, apart from having some Italian blood, and mainly writes & raps for Bratt. I don't think I've ever heard him sing anywhere .. also it's pretty strange hearing an American say "Make yourself the question" instead of "Ask yourself the question". :D

If someone has time to ask Bratt over FB ~ I'd love to know who the actual singer is ^^ .. here's what the booklet says regarding the tune:
EUROMACH3 wrote:The prolific 007 packed suspense tune. It's amazing that Leonardi & Foglia's combined production was done in such a rush.
Even though the tone is a bit lighter and it's a first time male vocalist, you can expect this high grade quality in the future ~
Coming with Techno taste phrases, this hard action tune will make you ParaPara!

But that's rapping not singing dude!Image

Just to compare his voice, here's Big Jim, whom I think sounds undoubtedly Italian comared to Fausto's Brooklyn accent:

It sort of reminds me of the singer who did BiBi's Into my Dream and/or Mark Foster's Man on the Moon more than FV Guio tho ~ ♫

The 70s and the 110s are the definitive era for me. This was when Eurobeat really got fast and loud and hard and the definitive sound came into its own.

Most of my favorites are from around this time. DELTA was kicking ass, LARABELLE - LOVE AS A WEAPON dropped on 74, and so on.

I came in around the 150s or thereabouts, to the best I can remember.

This, right here. This is the sound of that era.
