This review is from: Once Upon a Time... (Audio CD)
Once Upon a Time was the sixth album by American singer Donna Summer. It tells a modern-day Cinderella-themed story through means of very innovative disco music. Throughout the album, the songs tell the story of a girl who goes from having nothing, to finally having the man she loves, at the time (1977) the music and story were brought into the modern day via the use of very innovative electronic pulsating disco sounds that are found constantly throughout the album. This album confirmed Summer's status as a leading female vocalist within the disco genre and to date.
The album is also widely acknowledged by fans and music critics as one of her best albums, due to its variety of styles musically, that went on to inspire many modern day artists. Wonderful.
