Editorial Reviews

2012 two CD collection of tracks that helped fuel and were inspired by the 'voguing' dance craze that erupted in New York City between 1989-1992. Voguing, where dancers choreographed movements and poses taken from fashion magazines such as Vogue, first emerged around 1988 in the extraordinary `house ball' community of Harlem, New York. While Madonna (who is NOT included in this collection) may have been the most high profile practitioner of the Dance, like many others, she merely hopped on the bandwagon once it began to break out of the underground. This collection contains tracks that were integral to the dance movement. Soul Jazz Records.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The pros:

1. If you don't already have these original tracks in pristine CD condition, then clearly this compilation is worth buying as this is a collection of classic voguing tracks.
2. The liner notes are excellent, including pictures of the original ball children from back in the day and interesting stories about the era this compilation covered. (Although there are some minor factual errors.)
3. The compilation includes several post cards with additional pictures of the original ball kids.

The cons:
1. I purchased this CD mainly for the Junior Vasquez mixset of the songs on this compilation. Never have I been so disappointed with a piece of music in my life. Junior is THE pre-eminent dj from this era and this mix destroys a key part of his legend in my opinion. The song flow makes absolutely no sense, going from the old school disco tracks into the new school harder house tracks and back into disco with no rhyme or reason for sequencing and order. The mixing is often haphazard, not done at the beginning of a measure, or begun at a part that makes sense in a song, and quite often just fades the song out quickly. This mix is not up to standard for any dj, let alone one of the world's most famous. Sampling -- one of Junior's strong suits -- is minimal, and the only effects he seems to use is some tweaking of the EQ nobs, again very haphazardly.
2. Surprisingly, only a few of the song have credits including writer, producer, label, etc.

Overall, if you don't have the original tracks in CD quality, then absolutely get this compilation. If you're buying for the Junior mix, don't bother. (And that pains me to say...)
