I’ve taken some liberty in the track selection like “Touch Me In the Morning” by Diana Ross was reworked in the early millennium but was originally re-recorded in 1985 by Lydia Steinman. “Your Song” by Elton John (which closes this set out) was never re-recorded (to my knowledge) but re-done by Almighty with Elton re-singing the vocals in the early millennium as well. The same goes with Olivia Newton-John’s “I Honestly Love You.” Regardless, these tracks fit in nicely with the overall theme and feel of these sets as if they were true to the period.
The intro to this set was the hardest thing I’ve encountered so far. Using the original version of Divine’s “Shoot Your Shot” and mashing with Male 2 Male’s “Male Stripper” wasn’t working so I had to drop it into another software to get it to pan out. If the beats seem slightly off, it’s because the original mixes are not up to par with today’s technology. Regardless, I thought it came out well.
I’m guessing there are about two more of these sets, which I’ll post later this next week. That should be followed by a couple of Diva Hall of Fame re-entries that need to be refreshed before getting back into new Dance-Club, Circuit Tribal House, Funky House, and Underground House set later this month. Until then…ENJOY!
