    Seperating Summer From The "Bad Girls"

    When Donna Summer's "Bad Girls" was first released in 1979, it was the height of the anti-disco fervor. It was the summer of "My Sharona" by The Knack. It was the rise of power pop by Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe. It was where an anti-disco rally at Chicago's Soldier Field turned into a full-fledged riot. What people seemed to forget at the time was that not all disco sucked. "Bad Girls" not only more than makes that point clear; it also confirms that Donna Summer was (and still is) a tremendously talented female singer whose range went beyond Studio 54. From the thunderous opening of "Hot Stuff" to the urban speed of "Sunset People", this was unquestionably Donna Summer's greatest album. It was also the sound of the "Looking For Mr. Goodbar" generation just before the AIDS epidemic would evisicerate many of them. Summer would eventually distance herself from this genre. Yet, thirty years later, the album's whomping power remains undeniable and has lost none of its exciting crackle. To celebrate its thirtieth anniversary, this special edition contains extended versions of many of the songs that made Summer into a 1970's megastar, including "I Feel Love", "Last Dance", "On The Radio" and a charging, orgasmic version of "Hot Stuff" that squashes the album version like a grape. If disco can be considered timeless, then this is one of the few albums that made it so. This was also the album that seperated Donna Summer from every other disco singer in the world, which by itself is a major achievement.

    Remastered Masterpiece!!!!!!!

    Everyone has heard this album at one point or another. What's special about this collection is that it is remastered and the sound is IMPECCABLE! This album could easily have been released yesterday it sounds so very current!! The digipack is designed to imitate the original LP album fold out and the 12" versions on the second disc are also first time remastered. Truly an awesome collection of Donna's hits. There is no other that can match the honest, emotive, soulful voice that is Donna Summer. For those who have complained that this set does not include anything unreleased other than the fabulous demo version of Bad Girls, read the foreword beautifully written by Brian Chin. Giorgio Moroder says that when he and Donna recorded back then, it was not common practice for them to do a demo first. They laid down the tracks and Donna did the vocals usually all at the same time and the songs were done. This is the reason why there is very little unreleased music from that time period with Giorgio. It would be wise for Universal to release additional Deluxe versions of Donna's albums where there is plenty of unreleased material from the 80's. I look forward to seeing She Works Hard For The Money in Deluxe form to include all of the unreleased songs from that decade. Anyone at Universal listening? If so, check out the Delphiforums called Endless Summer. There are plenty of fans very willing to discuss and have discussed what would make a fabulous deluxe set. 'Nuff said!

    Nothing 'Bad' here, entirely 'Hot Stuff'!

    1979 was a great year. One downfall, that 'Bad Girls' did not win the grammy for 'Best Album of the Year'. Beside securing Donna as disco's queen, she broke ground proving her vocal diversity could challenge and conquer rock 'n roll. There is nothing difficult about this album. It is not overproduced or shameless. The concept is clever. The music remains fresh and timeless today. Newly remastered, 'Deluxe' deserves repeated airplay to remind everyone how underrated Donna Summer became. Listen to 'Sunset People' and 'Our Love' and you will rediscover the magic of Donna's vocal sensuality and power. Lyrically, Donna and her writing team were at a creative height, and swiftly enticed us to the dance floor with hipnotic rythyms and catchy hooks. 'Bad Girls Deluxe' is superb. It is worth every cent. The bonus demo track of 'Bad Girls' adds to the fun. A 6 out of 5 stars!
