Dismissed as a one-hit heavy breather after her orgasmic dance-floor sensation "Love to Love You Baby" became a worldwide pop chart-topper, Donna Summer has made a career of confounding expectations. This double-disc set gets all the highlights, from the definitive synthesizer pop of "I Feel Love" through the disco diva of "On the Radio" to the proto dance-rock of "Bad Girls" and "Hot Stuff" to the gospel-inflected "She Works Hard for the Money" and the pop uplift of "This Time I Know It's for Real". Plus, of course, "No More Tears", her duet with Barbra Streisand, is a credential not bestowed upon one-hit wonders. --Ben Edmonds
Top Customer Reviews
She was a black female who made a major mark in the music industry before artist such as Debbie Harry or Madonna had even been heard of. The real respect she deserves has managed to elude her especially in the nineties even when most of her music is as much at home in the discos of today as it was in the seventies.
'I Feel Love' to name just one still manages to fill the floor. Therefore, if you only own one CD by Donna Summer, this is the perfect one. Buy it...you won't be disappointed and will probably be surprised how many of the songs you actually know or remember.
Disc two includes her hits that occured after she fell out of grace with the disco mode. There are plenty of great songs that were overlooked due to the disco backlash, such as, "The Wanderer", the romantically sultry "I'm A Rainbow", "State Of Independece" (another fantastic remake) and "All Systems Go", a great R & B number.
Not all is well in Donna-land, however. "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina" will literally have you crying for the original and her obligatory duet with Barbara Streisand "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)" will give you the clear message that 'enough IS enough' already! It appears that the two girls were fighting for the lead or at least that it was recorded at separate times. Rumor has it that they never actually sang together in the studio. It sounds like it.
But, these are minor inconveniences; almost funny. For 34 songs over a two decade period, this collection does service to a former pop star diva.

Donna Summer defined DISCO. Her songs were just simply bombastic, and the repeat value was definitely present. Read morePublished on 15 Mar. 2007 by Jay
All in all, this is a superb collection of Ms Summer's work. However, I was surprised, and even slightly disappointed, to find that her 1987 Top 10 hit "Dinner With Gershwin" has... Read morePublished on 2 Mar. 2004 by Andrew Reid
