Pressed on 180-gram vinyl. Challenger, originally released in 1985, is the first and only album from disco project Baby's Gang, and one of the most talked about items among collectors of Italo disco. Their first hit tune, "Happy Song," appeared in 1983 and was so beloved by Boney M. producer Frank Farian that he arranged for Boney M. to cover the track and release it as a single in 1984. When Challenger arrived a couple of years after "Happy Song," the full album was a whole platter of hits. Baby's Gang's final single was the 1988 hit "Disco Maniac," after which the creative activity of the project ended. This remastered reissue includes two additional tracks that were not on the original album: the original version of "Happy Song" and a maxi version of "Disco Maniac."
