"Okay, There really IS no place to get the full length version of "With Your Love." (I have the vinyl LP, and recorded it onto CD from there). However, if you can afford the Donna Summer Anthology 2 CD set, THAT'S where you can get the 12" version of Hot Stuff segued directly into Bad Girls...a shock for a CD that is all edits, but I promise you, that is the ONE place where it IS available...and ON THE RADIO, although not even on the original vinyl version of this title, is available in its TRUE long version (7:30 or so) on the CASABLANCA STORY 4 CD set...the "long version'" on the On The Radio Greatest hits CD is shorter(5:30)...HOWEVER, the long version (7:30), which was originally on the Foxes soundtrack in 1980, is actually MISSING the final slow verse of the 5:30 version!!! So, for all you diehard fans, there is NO LONG LONG version available...too bad...a nine minute version including that "lost" verse would have been awesome...Hope this info helps fellow fans..."
Where's the rest?

"At first sight, this seems like an excellent chance to scoop up all of Donna Summers classic 12" dance singles, but on closer inspection, you don't get all that much. Having long versions of "I Feel Love", "Hot Stuff" and the full version of "Macarthur Park" on one Cd is great, but where are "Sunset People", "Rumour Has It", "On The Radio" or "Bad Girls", instead of odd choices like "With Your Love" and "Last Dance". There is a better selection of hits on "Anthology", but it comes with far too much poorer material from Donna's later career ("The Wanderer", anybody?), whereas "On The Radio" has a great selection from the classic years, but they are all too short and segued together-yuk! This means that the "Dance Collection" is not an essential purchase, but it's not expensive, and has at least some highlights of Donna Summer's career as a disco diva."

"This is the collection to obtain if you have already purchased the Live and More c.d. only to find out MacArthur Park Suite was disastrously deleted ! The 17 minutes plus of the Suite are restored here as originally recorded on the vinyl version of the Live and More 1978 double l.p.Also, I too agree with a previous reviewer;Bad Girls, On The Radio, Sunset People should have been included along with Could It Be Magic.Hopefully, there will be a second volume to The Dance Collection (hint)...This collection exemplifies what made Donna a household and nightclub name in the early and late '70s..."

"In 1987, PolyGram records released a compilation of twelve inch singles of Donna Summer's classic hits. Prior to this album the songs were the domain of the discos ( and international soul charts). Now the public has the chance to "Dim All The Lights" and enjoy this hot album. here are the extende versions of "I Feel Love", "With Your Love' & "Last Dance" (These two songs were featured on the film "Thank God It's Friday"). Here too is the legendary "Mac Arthur Park Suite"; which includes "One Of A Kind" & "Heaven Knows". (Classic R&B, Soul). And if that's not enough for you; there's "Hot Stuff", "Bad Girls" , "Walk Away", "Dim All The Lights" and yes, "No More Tears" the duet with Barbra Streisand. (The Long Version). The Dance Collection is a keeper."
