It was during this early period that she was writing and producing ground breaking disco music with Giorgio Moroder & Pete Bellotte and there wasnt a club in the late seventies that wasnt filling a dance floor with one of her tracks.
As soon as you hear the opening chords that introduce "Spring Affair" you know you're in for something special and the mix that merges "Affair" into "Summer fever" is awesome (listen to the heartbeat bass. The album closes with the classic ballad "Winter melody" and you just want to go back to the beginning and start the CD all over again.
Many people will look at the four track listing and question value for money given the vast numbers of tracks available on todays CD's however, all four on this album are absolute gems.
Do yourself a favour and "Take a little Summer with you wherever you go" courtesy of the lady herself - An all time classic!!!!
The album tells the story of a love affair by relating it to the four seasons. Track one "Spring Affair" starts the love affair when it's new. Then track two "Summer Fever" has the affair in full bloom. Track three "Autumn Changes" sees the affair falter and begin to die. Track four "Winter Melody had the affair cold and over. But then there is a reprise of "Spring Affair" with track five that offers a new cycle and a new affair.
The lyrics and the arrangements reflect the mood of the seasons with the sharp sweet sweeping strings of the orchestra reflecting the newness of spring. There is the pulsing hot rhythm of summer and the swirling strings of troubled and changing winds of autumn with shifts in style. Winter has crispness with gentle synth sounds and cold sadness of chilly contemplation for what has been.
There is plenty of use of the Moroder synthesiser sound in the production that provides a lush sound married with the swift Disco energy and many instruments of colourful sound.
The original album had a pull out calendar for 1977 with four stylish photos of Donna representing the four seasons.
The photo on the cover was, fittingly, the summer photograph. This had Donna relaxing on a partial moon. Autumn had an image of Donna as a Marilyn Monroe figure with white dress being blown up by the wind. T spring had Donna sitting on a swing of spring like flowers with a Scarlet O'Hara style hoop skirt. And winter had Donna in a fur with a tear on her cheek. An image of the calendar with all four images is represented in the artwork for this CD.
Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte produced the album. The Munich Machine also backed the album.Read more ›
