"The Donna Summer Anthology"
Donna Summer, The Queen of Disco -- She was the
Whitney Houston of the Seventies -- her music was great, and like
Houston, she wasn't bad to look at. (C'mon guys, didn't you get a
bit excited when you saw her?)
As big as Disco was back then, Donna Summer was IT!
Her music was funky, soulful, and sexy. Thanks to producer Giorgio
Moroder, his synthesizer work and disco/funk sound became a staple to many
of Donna Summer's 1970s hits: Spring Affair, I Feel Love, Last Dance,
MacArthur Park. And let us not forget how we all got excited when we
first heard of Donna Summer as she emerged with the very sexy, breathy and
orgasmic Love To Love You Baby, and how everyone began discovering the
sexual peak of disco, as well as their own.
The rockin' Hot Stuff, the sexual profession Bad Girls,
Heaven Knows with Brooklyn Dreams, and Dim All The Lights
made Donna Summer a household name in the music business.
Soon after her On The Radio album, which featured a #1
duet with Barbra Streisand, it seemed there was no stopping for
the music's answer to the movies' sex goddess.
However, as the Eighties began, disco was dying, and things began
changing for Donna Summer, both in music and her personal life.
She sued her managers, and she became a born-again Christian.
However, there was life musically for Donna Summer. She may
not have accomplished high peaks in the Eighties as she did in
the Seventies, but the rest of this Anthology is quite interesting.
The pop-influenced The Wanderer is very bouncy; it reminds me
of a Sheena Easton dance tune. Cold Love and Love Is
In Control (Finger on the Trigger) have that mid-to-late-Eighties
Michael Jackson sound. She Works Hard For The Money
was a Top Ten hit, and its excellent video was heavily played on MTV.
Many of the late-Eighties tunes finishing out the album can be
compared to such artists as Janet Jackson, Gloria Estefan,
Donna Summer's music is not to be ignored. She helped make
disco become one of the many ideal sources in popular music.
And, even after the rise and fall of the disco sound, she
managed to fulfill her continuing musical career on a positive note,
where most people would think that one's popularity evolves around
one particular style of music: She moved on with the times, despite
how difficult it could be.
