As has been stated elsewhere, this is a mini collection of Donna's prime Seventies Disco odyssey. Well, I say mini collection in the sense that it's only eight tracks but 73 minutes long, so very good value for money at this low price.
What you get is one of the most adventurous and ambitious artists of her generation pushing back the boundaries of a fairly shallow, good time musical genre. Lyrically it's nothing to write home about - mainly relationships and dancing - but musically it is out of this world for its time in terms of production and arrangements.
Underpinning it all is an undertow of sadness, regret and melancholia ever present in Donna's sublime soulful voice. She is a remarkably passionate singer who seems to give her all when she's recording her vocals, and it's this quality that helps her material rise above the merely generic.
The songs are all truly marvellous. There's nothing that I can add about "I Feel Love" that hasn't been said elsewhere, other than at the time it was like hearing something land from outer space compared to the currency of Punk and New Wave. "No More Tears" is less a tender duet and more a hilarious vocal tag team contest to see who's top dog. And the 17 minute "MacArthur Park Suite" is simply jaw-dropping and worth owning this compilation for if nothing else.
This is NOT a Greatest Hits compilation, but a singular attempt to collect some of her best work of a specific time period in one place, and on that level it succeeds handsomely.
