I recall when I first saw on the cover of Billboard Magazine sometime in late 1995 while in college that Donna Summer's "shelved" double LP was going to be released on Polygram Records. It was a thrill to think that I was finally going to hear a CD quality version of this fabled and lost music. Well I loved what I heard. The CD of course has a Giorgio Moroder, Pete Bellotte, and Harold Faltermeyer sound. Songs such as Romeo, Runner with the Pack, and People Talk all possess the electronic sound that made her CD's great and cutting edge. The ballads such as To Turn the Stone (simply sublime and spine-tingling) I'm A Rainbow, Don't Cry For Me Argentina, You To Me, Sweet Emotion and I Need Time give the listener a window into Donna's introspective side. I Believe in You a duet with Joe "Bean" Esposito of Brooklyn Dreams is uplifting and their voices blend so well as they did on the song Heaven Knows.

However, there always seemd to be so many unanswered questions as to why David Geffen shelved the project. Over the years there has been speculation. In one interview, Pete Bellotte reported after playing the record for David Geffen back in 1981, the response seemed positive but in truth he hated the double LP. Well recently more about why the project was cancelled has been revealed. In a recent and amazing interview with Harold Faltermeyer in the October 2012 issue of Daeida Magazine, Harold says that during the recording of this double album Donna seemed changed and her music became bland. She uncharacteristically was not showing up for recording sessions and when she did she would sing for a while and then have to leave and not come back for a couple of days. Harold also said in the interview that Giorgio Moroder had sent him to N.Y.

A very mixed album I can see why it was withheld at the time.

Donna was teamed for the last time with producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte in 1981 to create this jewel and it features some of her best work from timely ballads like 'True love survives' (which she does in bass which has always been my favourite incarnation of her wonderfully versatile voice) to the seductive 'Runner with the Pack'. The standout tunes for me were the joyous 'Walk on', 'People Talk','To Turn the Stone' and the lush, mesmerising title track. There is one song though which I wasn't so keen on which is 'Brooklyn', a sentimental (but still quite funky) tribute to her baby daughter (although I've grown to quite like it now). Donna also does a grand and slightly different cover of 'Don't cry for me Argentina'. It seems odd that the album was never released at the time, the album was shelved and Donna was teamed with Quincy Jones to make the far less effective 'Donna Summer' LP of 1982. 'I'm a Rainbow' finally saw the light of day in 1996 and a good thing to as it has proved to be my favourite of all her albums so far.
