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. ‘I’M A RAINBOW’ was the second album recorded for Geffen Records and due for release 1981/1982 but was shelved at the time, as David Geffen wanted to bring in Quincy Jones to produce the album that became ‘Donna Summer’. ‘I’M A RAINBOW’, which was produced by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, was eventually released in its entirety in 1996 by PolyGram, as a single 18-track CD release. A few tracks had been released in the early 1980s, including ‘Highway Runner’ and ‘Romeo’ with the latter being included on the ‘Flashdance’ OST. ‘Flashdance’ included the ballad ‘Lady, Lady, Lady’, which was performed by original Brooklyn Dreams singer Joe Esposito, who appears on the duet ‘I Believe In You’, the opening track of ‘I’M A RAINBOW’. The album was originally intended to be Donna Summer’s fourth Double-Album (fifth, if you count ‘On The Radio – Greatest Hits Vols. 1 & 2’) and as such, this re-issue will be released as originally configured, as two CDs, representing each of the Record One and Record Two sequence. Some of the album’s recordings nod back to the 1970s heights but they also provide introspection as to how her early 1980s recordings might have rolled-out, had the project been completed as intended. There are several musical styles and ideas contained within the Double Album, which gave the option to experiment, something not as easy to do in the constraints of a 38 minute LP. This re-mastered re-issue, is packaged in a sumptuous case-bound book, containing the original credits and acknowledgements alongside newly authored liner notes by noted US writer Christian John Wikane, with brand new interviews with Bruce Sudano, Harold Faltermeyer, Sylvester Levay, Stephanie Spruill, Joe "Bean" Esposito, Kim Carnes and archive interview with Donna Summer by Christian John Wikane and features the original studio album on 2CDs.
