"Sylvester was a highly visible mascot during the late 1970s/early 1980s disco movement - an openly gay, cross-dressing, resplendent presence respectfully dubbed The Queen Of Disco. As well as producing a clutch of successful disco singles, he also offered rare public representation for cross-dressing and transgender communities in the US, and has since been canonised as an LGBT icon. His story is a rich and remarkable tale, albeit one with an unhappy ending: Sylvester passed away from HIV/Aids-related complications in 1988. Fantasy Records -Sylvester's regular home in the late 1970s- are set to release a new primer to his musical output. 'Mighty Real: Greatest Dance Hits' arrives 25 years after Sylvester's death, and will collect his best known works in a 2LP package." (label info)
