5.0 out of 5 stars "Friday night and the strip is hot" 21 Jun 2009
By Nicholas Casley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was aged twelve to fifteen for the period that this `Best Of' covers. So, for me, it's thirty-seven minutes of nostalgia. With Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte in the producers' chairs, we have the best of Euro-disco with an American diva at the vocal helm. Summer of course is more than a voice, co-writing four of the nine tracks on show.

Many of the songs are more than mere disco fodder too; they possess intelligent lyrics, though admittedly `I Feel Love' has words that are earthier than intellectual! When I first heard that song, my young mind was blown away; it's a song for love-making on and off the dance-floor.

The set opens with `Bad Girls', with its West Coast feel for "Friday night and the strip is hot". There's a heavy electronic influence in many of the songs here, especially in `I Feel Love', `Our Love', and in `Sunset People', where there are "pretty girls, still sixteen, but know the world." But the producers also fuse electronics with the full works: strings, horns, guitar solos, sax solos, perfect percussion, and a solid bass. The apotheosis of this set combines most of these in a brilliant arrangement in the tour de force that is `MacArthur Park'. Summer's superbly strong voice is phenomenal.

The full track list comprises Bad Girls, Hot Stuff, On The Radio, I Feel Love, Walk Away, Last Dance, Sunset People, MacArthur Park, Our Love. There's not a duff track on this set. I love it: five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Donna Summer: WALK AWAY: THE BEST OF: 1977-1980 (1980) 15 Nov 2006
By Chad DeFeo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In mid-1980, Donna Summer released her tenth album entitled, WALK AWAY: THE BEST OF: 1977-1980, featuring only Donna Summer's greatest hits from the years spanning from 1977 to 1980. This album is very good, but there's just not enough on the album, not enough to do the album any kind of justice.

BAD GIRLS

From the album BAD GIRLS (1979). Great song.

HOT STUFF

From the album BAD GIRLS (1979). Great song, but it's always best in its entirety, as well as having "Bad Girls" follow the track.

ON THE RADIO

From the album ON THE RADIO: GREATEST HITS VOLUMES I & II (1979). Awesome tune.

I FEEL LOVE

From the album I REMEMBER YESTERDAY (1977). Awesome tune.

WALK AWAY

From the album BAD GIRLS (1979). Awesome.

LAST DANCE

From the original motion picture & motion picture soundtrack THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY (1978). Great song.

SUNSET PEOPLE

From the album BAD GIRLS (1979). Awesome.

MacARTHUR PARK

From the single MacARTHUR PARK (1978). Great song.

OUR LOVE

From the album BAD GIRLS (1979). Another awesome tune.

As I said earlier, this album is very good, but there's not enough songs on here to do this compilation any justice. But it's still a good album, especially if you are trying to collect all of Donna Summer's albums.
5.0 out of 5 stars "Walk Away" 5 May 2013
By Mo Anthony - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finding "Walk Away" as a cd has helped me on my quest 2 own all of Donna Summer's music that is still available. It takes me back 2 a happier time when Donna Summer ruled the charts, the clubs & radio 2. "Walk Away" is 1 of Donna's best greatest hits collections. It includes her greatest hits from '77-'79. It doesn't get much better than this. Long live the queen!! I got what I paid 4.
