DONNA SUMMER gained prominence during the 1970s disco era, propelled by her incessant and creative driving force behind the genre’s global popularity, rightly earning the title “Queen Of Disco” and becoming one of the most successful recording artists of the entire decade. Donna was the first Artist to have three consecutive Double-Albums reach No. 1 on the US Billboard charts and also became the first artist to achieve four No. 1 singles in a thirteen month period. Donna’s catalogue has sold more than 130 Million units worldwide and this re-issue campaign of seven of her later albums, prove that she was able to accommodate new musical and production styles as the decade progressed. Donna Summer became the first Artist signed to the new Geffen Records label in 1980 and released her first album – ‘THE WANDERER’ - for the label in the same year. The fifth album recorded for but not released by the label was 1989’s ‘ANOTHER PLACE AND TIME’, which paired Donna Summer with multi-hit making, multi-million-selling UK producers Stock Aitken Waterman. The album’s lead single ‘This Time I Know It’s For Real’ had that familiar SAW radio friendly hit-making potential and as such was a massive radio track, with the single peaking at #3 in the UK, giving Donna her highest charting single for more than a decade. Four further singles were released from the album including the two Top 20 hits, ‘I Don’t Wanna Get Hurt’ and ‘Love’s About To Change My Heart’, giving Donna back-to-back UK Top 10 hits for the first time since 1977.
