Hi-Res Auszeichnungen Hi-Res Audio
The late queen's longtime collaborator and husband, Bruce Sudano, served as executive producer for this tribute, a varied collection of remixes from house pioneers (Frankie Knuckles, Masters at Work), hipper left-of-center figures (Holy Ghost!, Hot Chip, Jacques Greene), and current dance-music stars (Duke Dumont, Laidback Luke). Afrojack transforms "I Feel Love" into a barrage of battering noise and reduces Summer's vocal to pulp, while Greene's "On the Radio" has Summer so heavily echoed and distant that it could be titled "On the Radio (At the Bottom of a Deep Well)." Dumont likewise treats Summer like a sample source, but he places her at the fore, over a characteristically spacious and relaxed house track. On the other side, Masters at Work update and sweeten "Last Dance" with live bass, guitar, and keyboards. Knuckles, assisted by Eric Kupper, also retains Summer's essence for a version of "Hot Stuff" that trucks. At the end, there's a new song, "La Dolce Vita," written by Summer, Moroder, and Nathan DiGesare. As enjoyable as anything off 2008's Crayons, Italo-disco fanatics might not be able to hear it without thinking of Ryan Paris' 1983 hit of the same title, while younger listeners might think of it as a rip-off of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." It's bittersweet to hear Moroder's processed voice intone "We miss her so." © Andy Kellman /TiVo

On the Radio: Greatest Hits, Vols. 1-2 originally appeared as a double vinyl set in 1979 and was regarded well enough to make the transition to other formats. The release is an almost complete anthology of her popular '70s output, including the number one club singles "Love to Love You Baby," "Try Me, I Know We Can Make It," "I Remember Yesterday," "MacArthur Park," "Bad Girls," "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)," and "Hot Stuff." © Andy Kellman /TiVo

Bad Girls marked the high-water mark in Donna Summer's career, spending six weeks at Number One, going double platinum, and spinning off four Top 40 singles, including the chart-topping title song and "Hot Stuff," which sold two million copies each, and the million-selling, Number Two hit "Dim All the Lights." Producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte recognized that disco was going in different directions by the late '70s, and they gave the leadoff one-two punch of "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls" a rock edge derived from new wave. The two-LP set was divided into four musically consistent sides, with the rocksteady beat of the first side giving way to a more traditional disco sound on the second side, followed by a third side of ballads, and a fourth side with a more electronic, synthesizer-driven sound that recalled Summer's 1977 hit "I Feel Love." Though remembered for its hits, the album had depth and consistency, concluding with "Sunset People," one of Summer's best album-only tracks. The result was the artistic and commercial peak of her career and, arguably, of disco itself. © William Ruhlmann /TiVo

"Love to Love You Baby"'s 16 minutes and 48 seconds of arousal and refill -- ticklishly sensitive rhythm and fusion -- threw disco into a tizzy overnight, but the tonally starved blues-of-isolation on the B-side isn't to be missed, either: the broken promises Donna Summer bemoans in "Full of Emptiness"; "Need-a-Man Blues," with its unrequitedly sexy guitar rhythm as out of range of Summer's voice as she of satisfaction; the imaginary seaside hold-me in "Whispering Waves"; and "Pandora's Box," where Summer and guitar scream icily at one another as they turn their backs on each other's body music. Hunger without recourse; essential disco. © Michael Freedberg /TiVo

Das fünfte Album von Disco-Queen Donna Summer folgt wie die bereits zuvor veröffentlichten drei Scheiben einem Konzept: Wir sprechen von dem Jahr 1977 und wir sprechen insofern von A-Seiten und B-Seiten. Die erste Seite von "I Remember Yesterday" folgt dem Titel und erinnert sich demzufolge an Gestern: Die Tracks kombinieren den typischen Moroder-Disco-Sound mit jeweils einer anderen Dekade der Musikgeschichte, um diese dann mit dem letzten Track in die Zukunft zu katapultieren. So huldigt Summer zunächst den 1940ern mit Swing-Sound ("I Remember Yesterday"), den 50ern ("Love's Unkind") und den 60ern mit Girl-Group-Charme ("Back In Love Again") sowie den 70ern mit Funk ("I Remember Yesterday Reprise"). Die zweite Seite schaut in die Zukunft. Und diese Zukunft des Jahres 1977 scheint heute immer noch Zukunft zu sein: "I Feel Love" ist ein ästhetisches und technisches Erdbeben in der Musikgeschichte. Brian Eno nannte das revolutionäre Stück damals ebenfalls den "Sound der Zukunft" und in der Tat: Der fast ausschließlich aus synthetischen Elementen bestehende Song bereitet nicht nur dem Techno der (Tanz-)Boden. Es ist die Geburt der elektronischen Dance-Musik. "I Remember Yesterday" wurde produziert vom Dream-Team Giorgio Moroder und Pete Bellotte, der auch für Summers Welterfolg "Hot Stuff" verantwortlich zeichnet. Entstanden in München strahlen die Songs bis heute eine eigentümliche Mischung aus Nostalgie und Futurismus aus. Vor den Track "I Feel Love", der die Hörer regelrecht elektrisiert würde, platzierten die Produzenten die Ballade "Can't We Just Sit Down (And Talk It Over)". Den Rhythm 'n Blues-Track ereilte jedoch angesichts der Innovation und Intelligenz von "I Feel Love" das gleiche Schicksal wie die anderen Songs auf dem Album – sie sind nur das Vorspiel zum quasi orgiastischen Höhepunkt, auf dem Summer in engelsgleicher und atemberaubender Weise singt. Zwar führte "I Feel Love" nicht zu dem Skandal wie "Love To Love You Baby" aus dem Jahr 1974, in dem sie sich als Marilyn Monroe imaginierend über 16 Minuten lang haucht, wimmert sowie stöhnt – die BBC zählte damals 23 "Orgasmen" in dem Song. Dennoch wurde "I Feel Love" als der legitime Nachfolger des Erotik-Hits betrachtet, auch wenn das Genre von Soft zu Hard wechselte. Mit peitschendem kalten Sequencer-Sound sowie chirurgischer Präzision (Hallo DAF!, Hallo Kraftwerk!) und einer durch Delay-Effekt verdoppelter Bassline entwickelt der Song durch das reine Anhören ein Strobo-Flackern vor dem inneren Auge. Mit dem Konzept-Album geriet dann das Donna Summer längst lästige Sex-Image endlich in Vergessenheit - Summer etablierte sich als ernst zu nehmende und extrem vielseitige Künstlerin. Ihr Disco-Sound veränderte nicht nur die Pop-Musik für immer, sondern war ein ebenso radikaler Einschnitt wie der Punk – und es ist ein schöner Zufall der Musikgeschichte, dass "I Feel Love" am selben Tag veröffentlicht wurde wie "God Save The Queen" von den Sex Pistols. Und während Punk heute so langsam museumsreif wird, ist "I Remember Yesterday" mit seiner punkigen-frischen Kürze von 35 Minuten Spieldauer immer noch eines der einflussreichsten Alben aller Zeiten und wird niemals vergessen werden. © Laut

Donna Summer's brassy, matter-of-fact mezzo does not play the sexy sanctified diva, and her musicians' crisp, loud beats don't evoke rapture or delirium. Instead, she and her rhythm men live up to the title of "She Works Hard for the Money." Here's praise for a waitress' 12-hour workday that sums up Summer's own post-dance queen job status, as well as disco fans' own spotlighted lives and maintains the pressure, from the steel-and-synth riffs of "Stop, Look & Listen" to the impatient tenderness of "People, People." No one writes about love with as mesmeric a sense of wonder as Summer confesses in "Love Has a Mind of Its Own," "Unconditional Love," and "I Do Believe (I Fell in Love)." © Michael Freedberg /TiVo

After becoming the queen of disco thanks to orgasmathon hits like "Love to Love You Baby" and "I Feel Love," Donna Summer topped off her five-year rise to fame with this live set. Certainly not a contender for first-disc choice, Live and More still works quite well as a '70s sampler for the converted. And since disco was the party music par excellence, the album's feel is one of a all-nighter in action. Featuring her signature hits and a fat chunk of disco tracks from the Once Upon a Time record, sides one and three solidify Summer's reputation as one of the most exciting and slick singers on stage. Balancing out the requisite dance material, Summer spends side two waxing nostalgic via a pop standards medley ("The Man I Love," "I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good," "Some of These Days") and some nice jazz and blues-imbued fare of her own. And ending the album on a very high note, Summer indulges in "McArthur Park Suite," a classic long-player that bookends two of Summer and producer Giorgio Moroder's pop disco numbers with a dance-friendly take on Jimmy Webb's monumental classic. Along with cloud-walking bouncers like "I Love You" and "Last Dance," this closing piece finds Summer at her sophisticated and tuneful best. There's nothing here to eclipse the original versions of these cuts -- save for the Webb cover, which is new -- but the Summer faithful will nonetheless want to pick up this very enjoyable concert recording. © Stephen Cook /TiVo
