Donna Summer

It’s very difficult to quantify the impact Donna Summer has had on my life.  I was introduced to her through my mother, who was a fan of Barbra Streisand. When “No More Tears” hit the radio waves, I had to hear more from the sultry voiced Ms. Summer, so I immediately went out and bought Bad Girls. I was blown away. This was my first time ever hearing an album that was mixed non-stop, three of the four sides (yeah, sides. Remember them? On vinyl?) were beat-mixed masterpieces of production and song craft. (Side 3 of the double album was a collection of ballads). I wore out that album. But it was when I decided to go back and buy Ms. Summer’s back catalog that I discovered “I Feel Love”, and there was no turning back. It was her voice that drew me in. It was Giorgio Moroder’s production that kept my attention, kept me enthralled.

I had been planning to mix a tribute to Donna Summer for a long time. When she passed away in 2012, I couldn’t help but think of my mother, who had passed a year earlier. I picked the songs, made some painful cuts, found some rarely heard or forgotten gems. I think my Mom would have liked this mix. She always enjoyed Ms. Summer’s voice. So, I dedicate this tribute to Donna Summer to my mother, Jackie.
