Donna Summer

Discussion in 'Comeback corner' started by idratherjack, Mar 17, 2007.

  1. There was a thread where someone listed her unreleased 90s albums:

    The Sony album had a release date of October 2000 as reported by Billboard:"donna summer&f=false
  2. Thanks for these!

    We NEED especially that 2000 dance album released. And I'm very intrigued by the David Foster and 2nd PWL Gary Miller etc. albums as well. Guess My Life is from the latter one then.

  3. I didn't know she recorded an album with David Foster. It kind of makes sense since she appeared on one of those Foster & Friends specials.
  4. Still love this performance that came with David Foster in 2011. Mad to think she would pass away just the following year.
  5. Someone claims in one of those old threads that she bought back the rights for the 2000 album. If that's true, I wonder if her estate has looked into trying to release it.

  6. Would make sense for them if they could release it. I think alot of fans would buy it for sure.

  7. I certainly hope they've looked into it and understand what a possible gem they hold in their hands. I just fear they're too busy rereleasing the albums we already own multiple times! As much as I love Donna Summer 1982, I really don't need a picture LP version of it (even if it was just an RSD release). That said I do want a book case version of the album like they've done for Another Place And Time, The Wanderer, I'm A Rainbow & A Hot Summer Night, but with my luck this is the one they'll skip...

  8. I wouldn't be too surprised, if a 40th anniversary book style CD release of Donna Summer comes our way later this year with new remixes.

  9. I am sure they will just keep re-releasing stuff with an "unreleased song" tacked on (when they have more in the vaults). Although, from what I have heard, Donna doesn't have a lot in the vaults? What they recorded was pretty much was on her albums? She didn't seem to record massive amounts of songs and then pare them down like Prince or Michael Jackson.

  10. I watched Thank God It's Friday last night for the first time ever. Very much of it's time of course, but I actually quite enjoyed it! Donna naturally, stole the whole thing, looking and sounding so beautiful as always. She was also rather funny it in it too. Gave the world the my favourite ever Donna Summer too, the divine Last Dance. So, always thankful for that alone:
  11. Thank God It's Friday is one of the worst films I've ever seen - I loved it!

    My favourite thing about it is two of my idols starring in the same film together - Donna Summer and Doris from Fame!

  12. Thank God It's Friday has one of the most iconic casts in film history:

    Our beloved Queen Donna, then Oscar-nominated actress Debra Winger, Jeff Goldblum, Terri Nunn from Berlin, and of course our beloved Doris, Valerie Landsburg. And let's not forget Lionel Richie pops up as part of the Commodores.
  13. Thank God It's Friday, is truly so naft and yet so good!!

    Still so beautiful

  15. Donna's voice was pure magic.
  16. Look what I bumped into on Amazon! No release date yet, at least not on their German site.

    As expected not that much bonus material, but at least we finally get the single version of The Woman In Me (which is in my Donna top 5!).



    DONNA SUMMER gained prominence during the 1970s disco era, propelled by her incessant and creative driving force behind the genre's global popularity, rightly earning the title "Queen Of Disco" and becoming one of the most successful recording artists of the entire decade, now having sold more than 130 Million records worldwide. Donna was the first Artist to have three consecutive Double-Albums reach No. 1 on the US Billboard charts and also became the first artist to achieve four No. 1 singles in a thirteen month period. Donna Summer became the first Artist signed to the new Geffen Records label in 1980 and the second album released for Geffen is this 1982 classic "DONNA SUMMER", which saw production duties by Quincy Jones. This proved to be a masterstroke, as the next album that Quincy produced was Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'. The album's r&b/pop dynamic featured a 'Who's Who' of the recorded music industry, from the album's lead single 'Love Is In Control (Finger On The Trigger)', to the All Star Chorus on the Jon & Vangelis written 'State Of Independence', the beautiful 'The Woman In Me', the Bruce Springsteen-penned and performed 'Protection' and '(If It) Hurts Just A Little', which was heavily sampled in 1999 by Cassius in 'Cassius 1999'. To celebrate the album's 40th Anniversary, 'Mystery Of Love' with those memorable James Ingram vocal harmonies has been given a contemporary r&b/dance feel, with respect to the original version, by producer Le Flex, who has produced and worked on a number of chart hits. This CD format, packaged in a beautiful A5 Mediabook, also contains 7" single versions of the hits, a non Album 'b'-side, as well as the 12" Dance Mix of 'Love Is In Control...', a newly authored 8,000 word essay, with Foreword by Bruce Sudano, by noted US writer Christian John Wikane, featuring new and his own archive interviews conducted with David Foster, Phillip Ingram, Le Flex, Steve Lukather, Bill Meyers, Richard Page, Greg Phillinganes, Bruce Roberts, Brenda Russell, Dionne Warwick, and the late James Ingram.
  17. The Woman In Me is so underrated, beautiful song.

  18. 13. The Woman In Me (7'' Version) - I'm guessing this won't be the US 7'' version with the spoken intro removed?
