All the hits -- bar one -- that you'd want

"In the history of pop, how important is Donna Summer? What, if anything, will she be remembered for? My feeling is that, in a concise history, her entry will list her first two major singles, but perhaps relegate her otherwise to cover artist status.'Love to Love You' is the important single that's missing from this collection. It got to No. 2 in the UK in spite of being banned by Radio One, the BBC's national station. The follow-up, 'I Feel Love', made it to No. 1, perhaps because it wasn't banned. A surprise really, because it has a more erotic pulse, but perhaps the BBC's censors only scanned the lyrics of each song before they made their decisions. This, anyway, is the glorious track that opens this collection.It has the other good stuff too: 'MacArthur Park', 'On the Radio', and my favourite, 'Dinner With Gershwin'. Although two of these are covers of other's work, it is incorrect to write off Summer as simply a good singer who happened to be in the right place at the time Moroder was looking for one. Summer is no German creation.If the tracks you like are here, buy this. I don't believe it's a re-master, but the sound quality is very good."
