A nice collection but nothing new,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Feel Love: The Collection (Audio CD)
Nicely packaged and remastered, and very good value for 2CDs full to the brim with many of Summer's finest recordings, but there's nothing new here at all. Her cover of Je T'aime can be found on the CD soundtrack of Thank God It's Friday, and the Cowley edit of I Feel love was on CD2 of Summer's recent The Journey compilation.
As for 12" version of Down Deep Inside - it's the single version with the last two minutes repeated. And Our Love and Sunset People, two great Moroder/Summer/Faltermeyer collaborations are taken straight from her classic 1979 Bad Girls album.
It's a very good value compilation for new fans of Donna Summer, but nothing that we haven't heard before....

Hi there. Thanks for the helpful review - you clearly know your Donna Summer!! I'm not personally a fan (wrong generation maybe) but I am looking to buy my mum a compilation album of hers for Xmas as she loved her back in the day. Do you have any thoughts on what the best compilation to go with might be? There seems to be so many! Thanks.

This one is great value, nicely packaged and remastered. It's got all the hits, although most appear in their shorter single edits. Nothing wrong with that, though. Plus there are some nice long versions on Disc two.
I'd go with this one for your Mum!

Hasn't the TGIF CD soundtrack been out of print for a long time now? That was why I was a bit excited to see Je T'aime on this set.

True - "Thank God It's Friday" has been out of print on CD for several years. But we're just days away now from a (very nicely packaged) US re-release:

Uncle, those are not US reissues, they are French.

Thanks Rick, for clarifying. You're right - I can see some French text on the paper insert. Apart from that, it's a perfect facsimile of the 1978 US Casablanca album.
The current pricing is as follows:
amazon.fr - €27.14 / amazon.com - $18.93

Hi Uncle 5
Do you know the Culture Factory label are releasing next month remastered editions of She Works Hard For The Money and I Remember Yesterday.

Good to know. They look a bit pricey to me, though nice to collect!

Hi Uncle 5
One more question. I understand that the McArthur Park Suite on the Bad Girls deluxe edition CD was different to the one from the Dance Collection CD by using a different version of Heaven Knows. So do you know which version of the suite features on this new collection?
