"If you've never read Andrew Holleran's DANCER FROM THE DANCE, or taken the ferry from Sayville NY to revel in the bacchanalia at Fire Island' Pines or Cherry Grove, buy this CD anyway. To quote Holleran, "The next song turned their bones to jelly and left them on the dance floor with heads back, eyes nearly closed, in the ecstasy of saints..." Don't miss this sublime collection designed for any disciple of pleasure."
One of the best dance compilations

"This really is a great compilation, well-mixed and with a wide variety of classic cuts. If you never spent a night at The Saint in NYC and don't know this long, building Jimmy Ruffin mix, God Bless Ya! It is the epitome of morning music. From older to newer cuts, all maintain a great energy in this superlative mix. Throw it on in the car, loud, windows open, and take off!"
Terrific CD by a DJ Master!

"The DJ, Michael Fierman, has magnificent taste and through his music mixing skills he manages to recreate that peculiar paradise of Fire Island Pines, which entrances all who have experienced it, gay and straight males alike. (Although the straight guys do clutch rather fiercely to their girlfriends!)
Like Fire Island Pines itself, the music exudes a type of tropical, urban sexuality.
I particularly enjoyed the last track, Souvenirs by Voyage, a glorious disco hit from the 70s. The songwriters appear to have been French, and indeed the song seems to be a gleeful combination of camp and high romance, at which the French are so adept."
