Notes / Reviews

If his name sounds familiar, it may be because Michael, a musician who had been battling AIDS since 1981 (and died in 1994), was in the forefront of organizing for AIDS support and education for many years: testifying before Congress, editing publications, appearing on major TV shows, participating in fund-raising events, and performing with the Flirtations. His recording is high-energy, celebratory, and very frankly about sexuality, passion and love ('how to have sex in an epidemic/ without getting caught up in the polemic'...from How To Have Sex). Songs include Where the Boys Are, Me & Dickie D (his Nice Jewish Boy), and Living in Wartime, performed with band-partner ex-Deadly Nightshade Pam Brandt. He thanks Lesbians and feminism in his notes. And, he's got a real nice voice, with amazing vocal endurance... a tribute to his incredible life. 1988.
