Pineapples – Come On Closer [DSS010]

Re-press of the Original Italo-Disco Hit Recorded in 1983 by 18-year-old producer Roberto Ferrante and voiced by otherwise unknown Douglas Roop, a soldier who was working at the south Europe NATO headquarters in Naples. “Come on Closer” was such a classic of early Chicago house that original pressings sell on eBay for upwards of $200.
