    Stephen L. Freeman, here...

    First... Let me thank you for including these 2, of my 3 "Disco Queens" medleys, on your Blog. I am beyond flattered, as they were all labors of love. And were created, solely with the use of 2 turntables, an old Bozak mixer, and a reel-to-reel tape recorder. Utilizing a simple editing block, razor-blade, and splicing tape. No computers, or Digital sources of any kind, were involved.

    Second... Please allow me to correct a couple discrepancies in your recitation of the track listing for 'Attack of the Disco Queens':
    1) Boystown Gang - Remember Me/Ain't No Mountain High Enough (not 'Inner Life')
    2) Patrick Cowley featuring Sylvester - Menergy
    3) Laura Branigan - Gloria (in 3D)

    Third... The complete 'Disco Queen Medley' Series was released as follows:
    1) Attack of the Disco Queens (the 80's Hi-NRG medley)
    2) Return of the Disco Queens (the 80's Hi-NRG medley pt. II)
    3) Reign of the Disco Queens (the 70's Hi-NRG medley)

    As a final note to collectors:
    There were only 50 copies pressed of HT Series 9, Issue 4 (the original pressing of 'Attack of the Disco Queens'), on RED vinyl. And only 50 copies pressed of Series 10, Issue 4 (the original vinyl pressing of 'Return of the Disco Queens'), on PINK SWIRL vinyl.
    "Reign of the Disco Queens" was never available on vinyl.

    Again, thank you SO much for finding my work to be worthy of your attention. The owner of DISCOTERIA (on the network), where I currently broadcast my weekly show - "Stephen L. Freeman's 'BACK TO MUSIC'", stumbled upon this site and sent me a link. And it was an unexpected thrill, to start my day with.

    all the best... all the time...

    Oh yeah... One more piece of info...

    All 3 CD releases of 'Attack of the Disco Queens (the 80's Hi-NRG medley)' are slightly different from it's original, vinyl release on HT Series 9, Issue 4 (side F).

    HT's Producer, at that time (J. Mark Andrus), felt he needed to "clean-up" some of the medley's transitions. Unfortunately, in doing so (without my knowledge) he muddied-up the intro, and eliminated the energy level from 3 of the medley's key peaks.


  3. Stephen, thanks so much to you for your comments and tons of great information you provide. I'd never thought anyone involved in the work of the music I post would write here and less with such kind words. This blog is also a labor of love, respect and admiration, so it's me the one who is really flattered and grateful.

    You have me make me dance and be happier with your mixes (how many times I've played Donna's Midsummernight medley!), I'll be deeply thankful to you forever!
