"I'm looking forward to the release of this entire series, which promises to be 15 volumes. It's an eclectic collection of new wave, hi-nrg, and more R&B/soul dance tracks, but lovers of any of those styles will most certainly find some rare 12" versions remastered with great sound. For me, this volume is all about the TRUE U.S. 12" version of "Never Ending Story" by Limahl, which has never seen the light of day on CD before, always being passed up for the 5:25 extended mix which comes from I don't know what source--perhaps a european 12" single. It's also hot to have the 12" of "With All My Might" by Sparks, since that wasn't on the Sparks `12" mixes' CD, although it is not one of their best songs from this era. Also, this version, despite the disc promising all full length versions, fades about 15 seconds early compared to the original vinyl 12".
Overall, this volume doesn't have as much energy as the volume entitled "The Queens' Music I." Many of these tracks have slower BPMs. Also, since this is focusing on gay club classics, it makes some non-mainstream choices, like using a Narada Michael Walden track that is NOT his #1 Biillboard Dance Chart hit `Divine Emotions.' Hopefully, that will appear on later volumes, as well as more crucial dance tracks that music fans have been looking for. Track times:
1. the promise...when in rome (6:24)
2. You're heart, my heart, you're soul...modern talking (5:38)
3. Never ending story...limahl (6:09)
4. High above the clouds...narada Michael Walden (8:33)
5. Endless road...time bandits (7:41)
6. I hear talk...bucks fizz (7:31)
7. My heart's not in it...Brenda jones (7:08)
8. Was that all it was...jean carn (6:30)
9. Saturday night, Sunday morning...Thelma Houston (6:16)
10. With all my might...sparks (6:28)
11. On the beach...chris rea (6:00)"
Not very punchy

"I was hoping to find the Original 12" version of Endless Road and I get one with sound effects and that Jet plane sound which they used a lot on so many remixes.Why don't they just use the ORIGINAL 12" mixes and save the effects for the later stuff."
