City O' were an Italo-disco six-piece led by renowned Italian singer and producer Gino Caria, and 'Rose Of Tokyo', originally released on Discomagic in 1984, was their one and only single. The original - all LinnDrum beats, plinky-plonked synths and gravel-voiced spoken male vocal, counterpointed by sweet female harmonies - and its accompanying Dub were reissued by Germany's XYZ Music in 2010, and now it's back, bolstered by two fresh remixes from Flamming Datum and Also Playable Mono, both of whom stay pretty true to the original but smooth off some of the rougher 80s edges - either making it more playable or detracting from its raw charm, according to taste!
