I still believe that Donna Summer, although hugely successful for a number of years, never really got the true level of success and credit she deserved. I saw her in her first London concert at The Rainbow in London when I was a very hormonal teenager: I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Naturally, the standout track on this album is the extended version of Love to Love You Baby and it is truly sublime. Moroder/Bellotte/Summer were a genuine force to be reckoned with and were streets ahead of their time. Almost 45 years after its original release, this still blows most of today's music out of the water.
Brilliant album which still stands out amongst today's music. Extended version of Love to love you baby which is truly amazing. Other great songs include, Full of emptiness which is simply not long enough, although you get a reprise version to close the album. The other massive success on here also is I feel love which again simply makes this album pure pop genius.
For me, Donna Summer's early work was classic. She (with Moroder) took disco somewhere new, gave it a new modern, electronic, almost robotic yet passionate edge, leading directly to the birth of electronic dance and trance and other great music of the last 20 years. Love to Love You Baby is a classic and this 15 minute version is the best of them all. I could listen to it a million times and then hit start once again. It is absolutely stuck on repeat, if you get my drift. RIP Donna.
