As per usual, the Disco Recharge packages will be beautifully designed and will fit right alongside the existing 16 Disco Discharge packages.
First out of the block is a 2CD special edition of the 1977 French Disco classic Voyage by Voyage. This album was a worldwide smash on its initial release and features the global Euro Disco mega hits From East To West and Lady America. This special edition includes the original segued album as well as the incredibly rare first volume of the Special Instrumental album which includes much in-demand instrumental versions of tracks from Voyage as well as the follow up album Fly Away.
