Ultimate Queer As Folk - The Best Of And More

"QUEER AS FOLK" AND THE ALMIGHTY TEAM: THE 'ULTIMATE' COMBINATION!

The groundbreaking UK anthology series that started a worldwide phenomenon is celebrated here with the arrival of this dazzling new Almighty double CD,
'ULTIMATE QUEER AS FOLK: the best of and more'.

Is without doubt the ultimate and definitive collection of "Queer As Folk" essentials, featuring many new tracks and mixes that have been featured on the show's international editions. Collector's should note that this beautifully packaged double disc set includes exclusive material that was not included in the first two UK soundtrack volumes ( both of which are now deleted! )
A brilliant, NEW Almighty remix of the classic DIANA ROSS anthem "I'm Coming Out" debuts on this set, along with the DISCO DIVAZ'S uplifting "Free, Gay And Happy" and there's more! The 'DR WHO' theme, which played such a major part in one of the main story lines of the show, is finally included as well, along with the dazzling PETER PRESTA remix of HEATHER SMALL'S 'Proud', the poignant theme from the memorable finale of the long-running American version of this acclaimed series. Classic gay anthems abound, with the first disc serving up hit after hit after hit in their full, original, unaldutered versions.
And yet it's the second disc that is the real piece de resistance:
The Canal Street megamix,
a non-stop mix courtesy of the Almighty team that features the creme de la creme in terms of Almighty gay club favourites. This is a set that no collector should miss---but that's only part of the story!
There's also a second collection, available exclusively through the Almighty website and a handful of selected gay retail outlets throughout the world. This second double-disc set celebrates both the musical history of "Queer As Folk" and the legendary Almighty team who, more than any other international dance production house, have played such an integral part in providing the soundtrack to the most successful gay television program in history. This second volume, entitled "Ultimate Queer As Folk: Almighty 12" Club Mixes",
is a special edition for collectors and DJ's that spotlights, for the first time ever, some of the biggest and best Almighty contributions to gay culture and, more specifically, to the ''Queer As Folk' phenomenon worldwide. It is an extremely limited edition package that includes all full, unmixed 12" versions, many of which have never been featured on any CD compilation before.EVER.!!
When you check out the complete track listings below, I'm sure you'll agree that these brand new Almighty compilations are truly the 'Ultimate' and the most defiinitive "Queer As Folk" collections ever assembled. On the old DMA rating scale of one-to-ten, both of these double disc sets would recieve entusiastic elevens! FLM!---Dean Ferguson
