Donna Summer: The Dance Collection

Album Notes

This is a compilation of 12" extended version re-mixes with some previously unreleased material.

Producers: Georgio Moroder, Pete Bellotte, Gary Klein.

Compilation producer: Bill Levenson.

A fine collection of the original 12-inch dance mixes of eight of Donna Summer's classic disco singles--half of which have never appeared on CD before--this compilation is a must for disco fans. If for no other reason, DANCE COLLECTION is indispensable because it contains the full 17-minute "MacArthur Park Suite," possibly Summer's most gloriously over-the-top record ever, which was excised from the CD edition of her LIVE AND MORE double album.

Other highlights include the stunningly minimal "I Feel Love," as hypnotic as a classic krautrock track by Kraftwerk or Neu!, and softened only slightly by Summer's erotic lead vocal. Shockingly, Summer's first hit, "Love to Love You Baby," is not included. This 18-minute track is quite possibly the most influential 12-inch single ever released, and the lack of it is puzzling in this otherwise excellent compilation.
