there is a bootleg on Automan not a bad score at around $16

There are two pressings of no UNIDISC SPEC-1229 and SPEC 1229A.
The SPEC-1229A contains a 13.40 minutes version of Cowleys remix of the Hills of Katmandu. The SPEC-1229 contains a longer version (14.00) of Cowleys remix of the Hills of Katmandu.
I did a little research and I do not understand why the UNIDISC record is not as highy sought as the JDC-record (which people pay a lot more money for than this Unidisc record).
JDC (re) pressed a lot of records and the JDC record of Cowley's Katmandu is simply a repress of this Unidisc version.
Check it out: the Unidisc record (from 1982) is six years older than this JDC-record (pressed in 1988).
I really never saw the UNIDISC pressing before and I collect already from 1980 Cowley records. So I believe the Unidisc record is highly undervalued and kind of rare. Every one is searching for the JDC record but I am convinced this Unidisc version is the original one.

Regards and happy hunting;

This is possibly one of the best dance compositions ever. Hypnotic, sensual, sexy, classy, classic - all in one. A true hybrid of disco, electro, tribal, trance and techno all in the one record.
This song was way ahead of it's time and one of Patrick Cowley's most outstanding pieces of work. It's amazing the interest that is now being generated in this track, 25 years after it's original production.
If there was a song to be voted as the most influential track in dance music history, this would be a very serious contender for the top spot.

Indeed---many DJ booths got "run ups" in response to this track. Cheers and shouts of joy were elicited when its intro was heard creeping in, as eager dancers literally ran to the dance floor. Celso Valli, the producer, truly revolutionized Euro-synth-disco here, adding to the trailblazing efforts of Giorgio Moroder (Munich Machine) and Boris Midney(USA/European Connection and Beautiful Bend).
His formula took the basic moog and drum machine loops, and layered live percussion (tambourines and flawlessly crisp, bongo riffs) with lush, female vocals. He actually employed the voices instrumentally, as they hold pitch-perfect, sustained notes for up to 4 measures at a time, in lieu of an electronically-produced vamp. In the final refrain, both females again hold the notes, but begin fluctuating lazily, and beautifully between two minor chords as tambourines shimmy in perfect syncopation beneath them. The result is deliciously ethereal, and evocative of the lyrics (which seductively invite the listener to fly away to the peace and beauty of a Himalayan mountainside getaway). Besides the vocals, tambourines, and infectuous bongo riffs (which give the rhythm a real-time, cha-cha syncopation) the piece employs not one, but two alternating synthesized "hooks" which wrap it up with a bow as they volley between the vocals during each refrain: The first: a hard-grinding, synth-electic guitar riff (the classic, Italo disco era trademark) the second: an eastern-inspired, synth-woodwind climbing and descending a scale, reminiscent of a snake-charmer's trilling. It gives the track a truly mystical/eastern feel. Finally, Celso Valli employed masterful layering techniques and elaborate phrasing, building, and transitioning similar to symphonic movement structures for both "Hills" and "Wishbone", which make both pieces story-like. The result put him squarely on the global dance map, and made most of his best work legendary.

A classic "run up to the DJ booth and shout incoherently pointing at the record" track. Pulsating, primeval electronic disco laced with the most delicious chorus.
