Product Details

Dark Entries Editions reissue series continues with a double A-side of the first two Helen maxi-singles, "Witch" and "Zanzibar," as a four-song EP. Helen was an Italo disco studio project that consisted of various producers, songwriters and vocalists from Italy in the 1980s. The first lineup included popular Italo producers PIERO CAIRO and MASSIMO NOE, known for their work with Joe Yellow, Den Harrow, Pink Project and Dharma, to name a few. They were joined by prolific Italo session vocalist ELENA FERRETTI. "Witch" was originally released in 1983 on Out Records, a label distributed by Discomagic Records. Signature Linndrum and Simmons drums create the driving rhythm track while Ferretti's powerful vocals tell the haunted tale of a witch and her magic. In 1985, the second incarnation of Helen recorded the song "Zanzibar." The vocal version was written by ENNIO RONCHELLI (keyboards) and ROBERTO BAROCELLI (guitar, bass), with singer DANIELA PARATICI. This line-up was heavily influenced by the "Afro" movement made popular by DJ Beppe Loda. "Afro" refers to the cosmic musical trend of slower disco records featuring African drums and rhythms. The "Afro Mix" version was produced by DJ DANIELE LOSI and ROBERTO LODOLA, with additional live hand drums and sticks by Nigerian percussionist George Aghedo. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl is housed in the original jacket from the "Witch" maxi-single featuring artwork by Feretti, and includes a foldout poster.
