Long proponents of the simple truth that people can be entertained into submission, Romanovsky & Phillips have been the most visible agents of social change on the gay music front. Within our community, misconceptions about R&P abound.

Overview

Long proponents of the simple truth that people can be entertained into submission, Romanovsky & Phillips have been the most visible agents of social change on the gay music front. Within our community, misconceptions about R&P abound. Aren't they folkie cabaret sissy clownish can't-really-sing types...and if they were any good, wouldn't they be on MTV or something? Wrong! Here is your chance to come to the supreme understanding...The Best Of & More...18 songs spanning a 12-year career, and a CD booklet with photos, lyrics, and catty commentary, a great introduction to the variety and depth of R&P. Their frantic activity and devotion to promoting what they call Quality Queer Qulture now includes the largest edition of the Fresh Fruit Records catalog ever. In their second decade, taking on the additional responsibility of music distributors, they are promoting the work of artists like Tom Wilson Weinberg, Jesse Hultberg and Grant King. We'd love to see the day when R&P are asked to go out on tour as the opening act for Melissa Etheridge or Elton John.
