Personal favorites from this set include K.D. Lang's Summerfling, Shapeshifters Lola's Theme, Beyonce's Naughty Girl, Depeche Mode's Precious, Bettte Midler's Beautiful and the song that began Victor's meteoric rise to fame, Madonna's Frozen.
Speaking of Madonna, his remix of Bedtime Story from the album Bedtime Stories blends so well with her Ray of Light offerings, I'm blown away how mind-numbing good this remix is. Clearly that song (co-written with Bjork) was a stepping stone for what was to come and while Victor's remix came way after the original release, it could easily sit nicely between Sky Fits Heaven and Skin.
The other bootleg included here is Britney Spears Everytime, which frankly never lent itself to being remix-ready as the official remixes never did anything for me. This remix (which was never released by Jive) feels a bit unpolished if unfinished. Nevertheless, it would have been a much-welcome addition to the official release because Victor was clearly on to something making it worthy of inclusion.
With the 4th of July weekend coming up and some other personal matters to attend to, I'll be dropping the third and final volume tomorrow for your holiday enjoyment.
Until then ...ENJOY!
