This absolutely brilliant album gave Donna Summer at least four great hits, two of which occupied the No. 1 and 2 positions on the Billboard charts simultaneously for a couple of weeks in 1979 (Hot Stuff and the title track, both rock-influenced tracks with prominent electric guitar). But what’s so truly excellent about it, is that there’s no filler tracks here – every single one of these songs is tuneful and memorable. Amongst the lesser known classics, my favourites include the tender ballads On My Honor, All Through The Night and My Baby Understands that have Donna moving successfully into torch-song territory, and the soaring disco numbers Our Love, Journey To the Center Of Your Heart and the addictive Lucky – this last being one of her most powerful songs of all time which should have been released as a single way back. It must also be mentioned that this album gave Summer credibility amongst the rock crowd (Disco was much despised when this album was released) but I also loved her earlier stuff, especially the other concept album Once Upon A Time. Bad Girls has only improved with time and serves as an excellent showcase for Donna’s songwriting and vocal skills as well as Giorgio Moroder’s genius as producer.
