Not only are The Flirtations out on the road, they are "out there" in humor, in song and performance. Trying to create a supportive environment for those who are homosexually challenged is one of the typical exchanges with the audience which makes this such a hoot. Some familiar tunes, such as "Mister Sandman" and "Boy From New York City" are given a gay twist, as you might imagine. Others are merely beautifully sung "Oughta Be A Woman," "Living In Wartime" and "Biko," for example. Then there is the off the wall fantasy entitled "The Homecoming Queen's Got A Gun" which you just have to hear to believe!

This is the third and, it turns out, final recording of the Flirtations. Through twists and turns, some tragic, some joyful the remaining two Flirts are Jon Arterton and Jimmy Rutland who are joined by the first female Flirt, Suede who adds a jazz edge to the repertoire. Rather than the rollicking "out there" presentations of the first two albums this one is beautiful, sensitive and introspective. The humor is thoughtful, rather than burlesque. The three voices complement one another marvelously well as they create a sung testimonial to the human spirit.
