(4 out of 5 stars)
This is a very enjoyable collection of the disco diva's greatest hits. The tracks can be classified into four sections, i.e. her early disco period includes Track 18 (the original) and Track 1 (A Remix) of the groundbreaking I Feel Love, plus tracks 2 to 7. Her highly successful late 1970s period is represented by Hot Stuff, Bad Girls, No More Tears and the ballad On The Radio, whilst tracks 12 to 15 come from her 1980s pop singer period and includes the Quincy Jones produced Love Is In Control and the magnificent spiritual song State Of Independence. Tracks 16 and 17 are her two greatest hits from the 1990s.
The CD proves once again that Donna was more than a dance diva; an exquisite interpreter of ballads and an accomplished pop artiste too. The songs that have stood the test of time the best include the brilliant synth-driven I Feel Love, her epic interpretation of MacArthur Park, the rock-influenced Hot Stuff and Bad Girls and the rousing State Of Independence. There is a plethora of Best Ofs and Greatest Hits compilations from Donna, and this album compares well to the best although it is not recommended to the completist.
Besides her excellent Bad Girls (De Luxe edition) and Once Upon A Time albums, I recommend the following compilations: The Donna Summer Anthology with 34 tracks, and The Journey with 20 tracks that were all hit singles in the USA.
