5.0 out of 5 stars A Huge Variety Of Styles!, 8 Jan. 2003
This review is from: The Donna Summer Anthology (Audio CD)
One needs no other Donna Summer collection other than this exhaustive chronological set. Disc one contains all the earlier big hits of her disco era, including "Love To Love You Baby" (edited version) to the upbeat "Sunset People". Giorgio Moroder is also the background star on most of these hits, crafting all the complex synthesized rythyms. Stand outs are "I Feel Love" (lyrics written in five minutes - no kidding), "MacArthur Park" (a good remake) and "Heaven Knows", a dreamy dance number.
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.
