Let me start with a shout out to JustCircuit.MAG contributor Mickey Weems who's recent "Fly-Over Land" feature in the June/July 2009 issue of JustCircuit.MAG ... is a must read for those who produce compilations or podcasts for gay circuit events or gay music lovers.
I, too, believe that it is important to include not only new and fresh music but also selections and/or remixes from the past.
When completed, my GLBT PRIDE 2009 series will include 5 compilations.
While a copy of the first installment, FREEDOM TO LOVE was dropped off at the DC Eagle last Saturday night, final touches on the second installment, STRANGE FRUIT was not completed until Sunday.
Opening with "Runaway Love" by Linda Clifford and featuring Etta James' BLOWIN' IN THE WIND as the title song ... the third installment of the GLBT PRIDE 2009 SERIES ... which includes old 'classic' as well as new favorite 'gay' VOCALS will be dropped off at the DC Eagle later tonight in celebration of the Captial Pride 2009 weekend.
While the 4th installment which should be completed by next weekend's Baltimore Pride will also highlight vocals, the 5th and final installment, featuring trance and new age, will be in time for the NYC Pride celebration.
