Yes it is magic!

"How do you follow up a monumental genre defining hit like `Love to love you baby'?

The answer is with the gold certified `A love trilogy'. Full of everything that made disco; strings, horns, bass, rich percussion, and a sexy voice. Everything but the glittery disco ball.

Opening cut `Try me' was loosely split into four sections; the breathy `Try me' with Donna's cooing hitting stratospheric notes and that distinctive guitar riff, `I know' sung in a slightly lower, sexier register, a wonderful musical bridge links to `We can make it' with a lovely simple keyboard bit and sung in her real voice before returning to falsetto on `Try me I know we can make it'. A charming multi style suite!

Side 2 (on the original vinyl LP) opened with the 1 minute `Prelude to love', a breathy spoken piece with lush, dramatic strings.

Next was the albums biggest hit, her cover of the Barry Manilow song `Could it be magic. This starts off with Donna singing in a lazy yearning version of her real voice. The strings are awesome, and there are lots of sensual moans and gasps. The final 1 and a half minutes is climatic with dreamy sounding backing vocals, magical keyboards and Donna's voice floating above it all. This song, along with `Try me' are still major crowd pleasers at her concerts.

`Wasted' has a funky R&B feel, with Donna cooing in her falsetto to a melancholic musical backdrop replete with harps and sweeping cutting strings. The percussion on this song is really rich, tiny details that set the Summer/Moroder/Bellotte team apart from the others. The final 1 minute musical outro of the song is simply outstanding. Great keyboards.

Closing is my favourite track. `Come with me'. Again, sung in her lazy, yearning voice. Very dreamy sounding and again, richly textured; guitars, horns, strings and excellent percussion. Great OO-OO-OO backing vocals. Very catchy upbeat song about desire.

A magical, musical journey into disco from the queen which like the album photo will take you for a ride above the clouds.

"Love Trilogy is one of the sexiest albums i have ever heard and it finds Ms. Summer in full steamy siren mode.
"Try me,I know we can make it" grooves along with hot dripping sensuality and captures Donna singing a seductive breathy falsetto throughout and then bulking up her vocals to tell you that "we can make it if we try".
Are you willing to make it with Donna or is it too much for you to handle????
"A prelude to love" finds Donna confessin',pleadin' and panting away in hot smoldering ecstacy which leads into the classic rendition of "Could it be magic".
Donna gives this Manilow classic a sexiness mixed with a contained yet fragile urgency that the original never had and you can feel the desperation and heartfelt sincerity in Donna's delivery resulting in one of her most compelling performances.
"Wasted" is a great little funky dance number which will get your feet shuffling and your body grooving and "Come with Me" closes out this love trilogy with a shake your booty get down and boogie disco vibe that's so hot that you'll need to call your lover to release that fire scorching from within you or to cool down those family jewels...
Simply put, Love Trilogy is a finger lickin' lip smackin' disco classic and is without a doubt the SEXIEST Donna Summer album ever.
So get those fingers walking and let the music do the talking....

Fast Follow up Album is a smash: Disco Dynamite

"After her first Casablanca album, Love To Love You Baby sold gold, Donna Summer followed up that success quickly with another album; "A Love Trilogy". This album contains the surprise hit "Could It Be Magic". This revved up Barry Manilow song unmasked the Diva behind the novelty singer. of course there's some Love To Love You-ish songs on the album for the fans who came back for more; the long playing "Try me I Know We Can Make It" and the techno tune, "Wasted". Both songs are forerunners of "I Feel Love". Moroder & Bellote's symphonic arrangements make for a lush backdrop to this trilogy. Donna belts it out on the final siren song "Come With me". The album is a delight."
