This is the first mix CD I ever made. Before it, all my mixes were on cassette tape. It was a pretty big leap to be able to burn a CD at home, so I set out to make a memorable set devoted to my own tastes at the time and "Selfish" was the result. Though my approach to curating the set list was selfish, this set proved to have broad appeal and was the best selling set in my tape and cd club. Here it is now in streaming format. It encapsulates the"pretty," soulful, and uplifting sound popular on Fire Island in the mid-to-late nineties.
Recorded as a tribute to Lesley Mandel to be played at a poolside reception in Fire Island Pines. Lesley's best friends suggested some of the tunes and from that starting point, I blended the rest of this indulgently reminiscent set of lux disco vibes for an afternoon in the sun. Sit back, relax, grab a cold drink, put on your sunglasses and enjoy. You might not be able to resist getting up to twirl a little! In fond and loving memory of Lesley Mandel.
