Synopsis

Amazon.com
New York City club superstar Danny Tenaglia presents a collection of various tracks that range from the garage conventions of "Baby, Do You Feel Me?" featuring '80s "Vanilla Child" Teena Marie to the post-hi-NRG remake of Front 242's "Headhunter." Purists may be disappointed with the absence of the deeper, more musical production that characterized many a Tenaglia remix on his Tribal America recordings, but the sensible bass-and-piano arrangements on tracks like "Music Is the Answer" and the soul-searching "Better Days" hint at Tenaglia's desire to keep his music as real and true to his roots as commercially possible. --M.

CD Reviews

A Classic!

"My jaw must have just hit the floor upon reading these poor reviews!
1st off, this CD wasn't released last year, but in 98', so for those hoping for the 'new' sound of DT, this is NOT it.
Tourism is a classic work of house music, no doubt about it.
I started listening to Danny at the tender age of 14, and attending his weekly residency @ Vinyl since 99'. This was the 1st cd of his I've ever purchased, and it blew me away.
This was the style which pretty shaped my taste in house... none of the tracks are 'obvious', 'overdone', or 'obnoxious'... just bass, beats, and flawless vocals. The production is superb and in my humble opinion, set the stage for many a dj to come.
If only Danny would still play these nostalgia inducing tracks on the dancefloor.
If you're NOT a cheesy club kid hoping to buy a CD full of drum loops, buildups, and catchy hooks... then this classic is for you! :)"
Truly amazing

"this cd is really really really great. All of the songs are wonderfull, with many layers of sound, not just one trite rhythm like most of the stuff that passes for good music these days. This is an essential cd for anyone who likes dj music"
Standing the test of time

"Tourism doesn't deserve poor ratings. If people are expecting this 1998 release to be like his newer GU sounds, it could likely be disappointing. Tourism in general sounds a bit more sedated and darker than the GU series. A few songs stand out and still sound amazing, like Element, Headhunter, and Read my Lips. They won't stand out like oldies in the midst of new sounds. These are the types of tunes that inspired GU Nubreed series. Some songs (Turn me On, Do you Remember, Baby Do you Feel Me) on Tourism, however, are a bit outdated from today's perspective. That's not to say that they are no good. In fact, underneat the dated vocals, lies amazing beats that's quite an impressive sound even for today."
