B2 is actually a kind a 'wolf' intro plus Roberto De Simone - La Gatta Cenerentola II° Coro Delle Lavandaie

This might have also been released in a generic, die-cut, black cover.

The original of LaGata is Roberto De Simone on this :
This is a classic here in Montreal and seems to be available locally quite often.. Only 23 haves on discogs but quite a few friends have it and all sellers are currently from Canada. La Gata is the classic, however "don't touch me" is a real nice piece of light hearted dance tune.
oh baby baby ..10 words he he he hehe he he he
hell yeah, you should check out this one too, its organized by the same folks, its an 80s chi house affair with a cool mike dunn appearance, i got a good copy of rgatkow at the end of last year
On label, Generentola is spelled with a 'J' -> Jenerentola & the title: Lagata (without a space)
energy breath
Do you know which is correct? I love the Generentola track. Has anyone heard "UMA" from OOIOO off the TAIGA LP? I assume they covered this but give no credit.
B2 - Is a bootlegged version of the rare originals available in North America. The genuine recording has a different beginning than this one. There are no "laments" on the original. The master vinyl used for the bootleg was severely warped and was hardly playable for the first grooves. It explains why the intro was mixed with laments to cover up for the unplayable part. The bad shape of the original record is betrayed again as we can hear a skip at 3'11" from the beginning. - Bootleg Made in Montreal
Absolutely. All reproductions carry this defect - unnoticeable for the untrained ear but rather turn-off for someone who heard the original.
So that is a legit skip on the pressing not just my copy?! :(
Actually, scrub that - bit lazy of them to leave the skip in!!
Brilliant story!! This is one of my favourite tracks ever - infact i hve the original on lp / 12" and also a bootleg remix and a new-ish re-edit, as well as the OOIOO cover version! Might have to get this now to complete the set!!
Generentola- La Gata , is a weird but very interesting song, a classic here in Montreal underground DJ scene.
