at 4 songs running around 8 minutes apiece, with a 3 and a half minute reprise to end the album, this is a disco triumph for ms. summer. beginning with the classic “spring affair”(which is my favorite donna summer tune and possibly the best disco track of all time!) […]
Fortunately, the music has a mind of its own. The rhythms push and go poof as delicately as ever; the horn section mutes and jazzes the melody; the beats stop, runand stop again whenever they damn please; and Summer expresses private rapture in falsetto as she smooches, oohsand ahs onto the mix like lipstick traces. Oh, rapture indeed. […]
my mom had a copy that i borrowed one day. i had no idea of the songs or anything; all i knew of donna summer was hot stuff, etc. half an hour later i was enraptured and wondered why they don’t make this stuff anymore. […]
