Unlike the other 7 Universal Japan reissues of Donna Summer's Casablanca catalog, this CD is NOT a remastered version because Universal Music upgraded the sound in 2003. Universal Music issued a Deluxe Edition of Bad Girls and Universal Japan apparently decided to use this amazingly stellar version in their 2012 reissue. Most likely they couldn't dramatically improve the job previously done. Nonetheless, the standout part of this 2012 version is the replication of the LP jacket. They also include a duplicate of the original 1979 LP booklet. Additionally included are English lyrics and Japanese lyrics. Alas the high price of this reissue makes buying the previous Deluxe Edition version much easier on your wallet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ms Summer's Opus! 6 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
Back in the heady days of the 1970s, Donna Summer was one of disco's undoubted icons; a sultry diva with a far-reaching vocal range and a string of songs to her name that remain classics today. Sadly her musical output seems to have now dwindled, but those in need of a reason why this lady was once the queen of disco should look no further than the masterpiece "Bad Girls". This album ranks as Donna Summer's opus, the disco/soul equivalent of what "Ulysses" was to James Joyce, for example (excuse me while I get carried away...)
When the album first appeared in 1979 it caused a certain amount of controversy due to the rather "sensational" subject matter of the album's title track, Bad Girls, i.e. a song about prostitutes. However even those of a delicate nature shouldn't be put off as the song now seems pretty tame by 2002 standards, what with the likes of Eminen and various other dirty-talkin' artistes filling up the charts with far more explicit material...
So what of "Bad Girls" itself? Well the album is certainly a lengthy one, measuring in at over 70 minutes of playtime. Originally released as a double album, it's now been compacted onto one CD, and is a non-stop roller coaster of up-tempo disco stompers mixed in with some more slow-burning tracks. Almost every track is of a high calibre by Donna Summer standards and she's doing what she then did best: knocking out great dance tunes with strong, soulful and emotive vocals on the theme of love and relationships. There's excellent musicianship on this LP too; Georgio Moroder, Pete Bellotte and Harold Faltermeyer all wrote and produced the album and it's obvious they work well with Donna.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donna Summer's Masterpiece 12 Nov 2002
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donna Summer at her best! 7 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, this album is one of the most important albums of the 70's. Donna and producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte mix the best from disco with the best from rock to make the perfect album. Donna's distinctive voice carries the album through dance tracks and ballads. The album contains only highlights and is a must in every record collection of anyone who lived through he 70's or anyone who wish they did. I recommend this album to anyone who loves music and yes, I am a Donna Summer fan...

5.0 out of 5 stars The 70s Rule Again! 27 Feb 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is indeed a trip back to the vibe and spirit that only the 70s had! You will hear people talk about what great music was around in this period, but its only when you play a fantastic cd like this that you get a true sense of the passion and creative energy that existed in people! I always feel you should be able to imagine a crowded seventies disco packed with people who are just there to have a good time without any of the horrid atmosphere we get in modern life! Donna Summer and many artists like her were at the forefront of this creativity, and long may their musical legacy live on for future generations to enjoy! Listening to this album, makes you realize what poor quality modern music has become! Buy this ALBUM!!!!
