Product Description

Product Description

DONNA SUMMER gained prominence during the 1970s disco era, propelled by her incessant and creative driving force behind the genre’s global popularity, rightly earning the title “Queen Of Disco” and becoming one of the most successful recording artists of the entire decade. Donna was the first Artist to have three consecutive Double-Albums reach No. 1 on the US Billboard charts and also became the first artist to achieve four No. 1 singles in a thirteen month period. Donna’s catalogue has sold more than 130 Million units worldwide and this re-issue campaign of seven of her later albums, prove that she was able to accommodate new musical and production styles as the decade progressed. Donna Summer became the first Artist signed to the new Geffen Records label in 1980 and released her first album – ‘THE WANDERER’ - for the label in the same year. The third album released for the label was 1984’s ‘CATS WITHOUT CLAWS’, which was produced by Michael Omartian, who gave the album a mid-80s dance/pop themed sound. The album’s singles included ‘Supernatural Love’, ‘There Goes My Baby’ and ‘Eyes’. Michael Omartian’s production credits include albums with Michael Bolton, Peter Cetera, Christopher Cross, Amy Grant, Whitney Houston, The Jacksons, and Rod Stewart. In a co-production with Quincy Jones, they were behind the mixing desk for USA For Africa’s 1985 No. 1 hit, "We Are the World". This re-mastered re-issue, is packaged in a sumptuous case-bound book, containing the original full album credits and acknowledgements, newly authored liner notes by noted US writer Justin ‘Musicology’ Kantor, as well as the lyrics, as included in the original LP and features the original studio album with non-album ‘B’ side and extra singles mixes.

From the late 70's into the early eighties everyone was doing disco-rock, even Queen, Bruce Springsteen, Rod Steward...well you get the picture. Michael Jackson always seems to be given credit for this new sound, but Donna Summer's 'Hot Stuff' was really the first!. Rock Instrumentation with a heavy drum beat. Donna Summer never really gave into making a whole album with this sound until 'Cats without claws'. And in my opinion, the best disco-rock album ever made.

The reason why this album was not as successful as it might have been was because all the problems that surfaced with the release of this album, she had fulfilled her contract with her pervious record company by delivering 'She works hard for the money' and was free to try new things. She did not want to be remembered or constrained by the disco image in the 1980's! And the backlash started!

But this is a strong album, 'There goes by baby' was really the only hit in America and 'Supernatural love' was being played quite a lot too, but didn't become a hit. 'Eyes' was eventually released as a single in the UK, but greatly reworked to make it sound more disco with more drums added and with a lot of the guitars taken off. 'Oh Billy Please' is also an album highlight. If you don't know this album well, think of 'Hot Stuff' with more guitars, it worked really well for Donna creatively but not commercially.

Donns Summer always was a presence in my childhood.
When I was a teen , I discovered this LP and this very one became my best since then.
I have downloaded it, but I had to own the original vinyl as I used to listen at that time.
I do recommend this to people from my age and all!

This review is for the 2014 remastered and expanded edition of Eyes.

Originally released when the electronic dance sound of the 80s exploded and brought rattling drum machines to the fore, Donna Summer's fourth album after leaving behind her disco days on Casablanca finds an excellent balance between New Wave/rock, dance and pop.

Supernatural Love was a storming slice of Hi-NRG with sizzling synths, while Eyes was an insistent mid-tempo dance track driven by its own unique sound and with intriguing lyrics that draw you in as much as the mesmeric groove. Remixer John 'Jellybean' Benitez reworked Eyes with his usual New York latin percussion for the 7" and 12" mixes (as well as remixing I'm Free for the B-side), but the album version is also fantastic in its own right.

Several of the other mid-tempo album cuts are excellent, including It's Not The Way, Face The Music and Oh Billy Please. The slower number Maybe It's Over - with slinky saxophone and keyboards - is also superb.

This highly underrated album gets a sparkling remastered reissue and sounds simply fantastic, bolstered by its presentation with a superb booklet.

This is one of my favourite 80s Donna Summer albums.It was completely over looked at the time & I struggled to even to get hold of the single releases in the UK. Though many will disagree, I prefer it to She Works Hard For The Money, which was also co-wriiten & produced with Michael Omartian. To my ears the remastering is first class especially when compared to the original CD release. It's also great to have an unreleased track & the remixes. Unfortunately the 7" remix of Supernatural Love is not included, but then nothing's perfect

At long last!!! Someone finally decided to re-release some of Donna Summers back catalogue! Not only that, but remastered and expanded!
This album is from one of her less successful periods, the early to mid eighties, although listening to the album now its difficult to see why it was not more popular with the record buying public, I can only assume poor promotion was to blame ( I was a kid at the time and I don't remember Donna Summer featuring much on TV or radio ).
There are some brilliant pop songs on here. 'Supernatural Love' has a real catchy hook, 'I'm Free' is good, the slower tempo 'There Goes My Baby' was apparently a hit in the USA, and the quite brilliant 'Eyes' always reminds me a bit of Gary Numan's 'Cars' with a very similar early-eighties sound.
In short, if you're not sure whether to buy this, maybe the absence of well-known hit songs is putting you off, or you just never heard of the album, you need not worry, you will not be disappointed, even if you only have a passing interest in Donna Summer, but like music from that period.

I brought this cd as I have the vinyl version, favourite songs are Maybe it's over, There goes my baby and Oh! Billy please.
I can't think of a bad album of hers. Love her voice and I'm sad that we will never hear a new song. If you are a fan of Donna's music then buy this cd.

Format: Audio CD
This is not one of Donna Summer's more memorable albums. It is well produced by Michael Omartian but lacks the timeless songs that are found aplenty on her better works. There Goes My Baby is a pleasant ballad where her voice gets a chance to soar, but most of the tracks sound very similar. The style is a kind of 80's Pop/R&B without the dance beat. The torch song Forgive Me has lovely piano and the title track is vaguely sensual, while the opening number Supernatural Love is embellished with impressive synth infusions. But overall, the album is rather tepid and lacks spark. It is with a measure of reluctance that I award it a third star. Perhaps it deserves only two and a half. I recommend the albums Bad Girls and Once Upon A Time to those wishing to hear the best of Donna Summer.
