5.0 out of 5 stars MacArthur Park Suite, 21 May 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Dance Collection (Audio CD)
I bought The Dance Collection only a week or two before the shocking news of Donna's death. One of my favourite singers, the first album I bought was I Remember Yesterday on vinyl in the 70s, and I decided to buy this CD because it contains the terrific "MacArthur Park Suite" and the long version of "No More Tears", both of which more than justify the budget price! Thinking I had most of Donna's albums, I was very surprised to discover that in fact I now only have the Endless Summer greatest hits and her album with Stock Aitken and Waterman on CD, as all the other albums I bought were on vinyl and I'd flogged all those at car boot sales in the 90s.

But to this album: first of all, there is that voice, staggering in its range and power over the thumping, pulsating dance music. Delicious melodies. Her voice is so wonderful and uplifting we forget that the backing music sounds dated sometimes - hardly surprising as some of these songs are approaching the 40-year-old mark! As a comprehensive run-through of her hits, this album is a failure as too many are missing - including obviously her slower material such as the plaintive wonderful Winter Melody and The Woman in Me - but as a compilation of her disco sound this collection is fantastic! Its hard to think of anyone who can match Donna Summer for the power of her voice and the quality of her songs ... Aretha Franklin, Gloria Gaynor, Madonna ...

A great talent, who will be sadly missed.
