96 Eyes - Raging Beauty,tape,1984,Germany/UK

Creative Tapes release cover
ICR release cover
Continuing the ICR label 80s tape releases hunt, here's a great tape by the German duo 96 Eyes. The tape was released both in Germany (Creative tapes, artwork by Stratis) and UK (ICR tapes). Instrumental minimal synth , with hints of cheapo Italo disco elements. Possibly the poppiest ICR release , but yet beautiful. Appears as i know in many minimal synth collectors wants lists.
get it here

It's like a homemade, lovelorn Yellow Magic Orchestra.

Listened to the whole thing already and now I'm repeating it... I'm lost inside this album!!

The lps of german band
