Limited Time Offer **First ever LP reissue, on blue coloured vinyl!** Listening today to the music produced by Sensations' Fix, a project founded and directed by Franco Falsini in '70s, can't just leave anyone indifferent. Already in the mid-'60s, Falsini was full-time involved in musical activities: a tireless traveler and experimenter, an artist with uncommon curiosity and intuition, after having lived for some time in the United States and England, he finally established again in Italy where he gave shape to Sensations' Fix and signed a contract with Polydor for the release of six records in five years. Often associated with the sound of Tangerine Dream and the so-called German 'cosmic couriers', Sensations' Fix were much more than mere clones of something already existing. 

"Flying Tapes" is a particular release, a collection of songs already published and revisited, strengthened and freshened thanks to a production that was no longer amateurish like that of the previous years. According to Falsini himself, it was an album specifically made to end the contractual obligations with the record label; it gives then the idea of how Sensations' Fix would have sounded if they could have counted on an appropriate budget since their first days, and it is therefore just as fundamental in the band's discography. "Flying Tapes" was published in 1978, and it appears to have never been reprinted in any format until today! 

Sensations' Fix albums are generally difficult to find; almost none of them has been reprinted in over forty years, but thanks to this series of reissues on the VM label it is now possible to rediscover them all.  This re-edition of "Finest Finger" is the first ever in LP format, on clear blue vinyl!
