In America the title track from Donna Summer’s 2008 album, ‘I’m a Fire’, took the singer to number one in the dance charts, making her the first artist to reach the top slot in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and the first decade of the new millennium. The ‘Queen of Disco’ had already secured five Grammy Awards and six American Music Awards, selling over 130 million records. Amongst her best sellers were three consecutive multi-platinum double albums, the first two of which – “Live & More” (1978), and “Bad Girls” (1979), were never far from my turntable. Whatever the musical excesses of the 70’s, the best disco releases still carried the veneer of quality production.

It was with some sadness therefore, that I learned of her death last year (2012) via a friend. I had missed the previous news item and like millions, had been unaware of her long battle with lung cancer.

Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 Summer also posthumously benefitted from the album remix treatment, a project that also included a ‘new and unreleased’ collaboration between the singer and her longtime producer Georgio Moroder, called “La Dolce Vita”. Entitled” Love To Love You Donna”, the collection featured 12 reworks of some of her best known songs, including “I Feel Love,” “Hot Stuff,” “Bad Girls” and “MacArthur Park”.
