Maybe some day we will all hear what she got up to,
musically,
with Bruce Springsteen.
Never mind the,
"...albums worth of unreleased material",
as one of her Producers told me.
I LOve her voice.
Do I want to buy 2nd rate remixes that mangle it ?

I am a Donna Summer remix fanatic. Does anyone know if there are any rare remixes on here? The songs that I especially need remixed are(and I Know there are versions of them) Say a Little prayer,Mistaken Identity, Stop Me, Forgive Me, Lush Life,Heaven's Just a whisper away,One Night in a Lifetime,On My Honor, there will always be a you, People People, Love has a mind of it's own, Woman,Any Way at all, and many on Crayons. I don't think there are remixes of I Believe in Jesus, Let there be peace, Friends Unknown, A Whole new World,Dreamcatcher,, I need time, To turn the stone,You to Me, and others, but if you know of any please let me know. Also if any one knows of mix of Enough is Enough(No more tears) with Donna doing it solo, please let me know. I would love to hear that. She does a great job on it solo on A Blue Lady Live, but, unfortunately, Babs is on the opening of the song.

I'm desperately searching for evidence of a 12" mix of Heaven Knows. I can't find any entries on here that match up with Wikipedia's description of a "12" single version, at 6:45, was released, the first verse sung by Summer solo, the remainder with Summer and Esposito.". Examples of this version can also be found on youtube, but I can't seem to find any catalogue entries on here that match up!

oops - it's LaDonna ANDREA Gaines, not 'Adrian' !

Just one of the best singers of all time, her seventies albums with Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte are absolute classics, groundbreaking in their day ... We will not see her like again.

love to love you Donna

Summer 1979 was the year that Anita Ward and Donna Summer fought unholy war with each other in the Euro charts. I think Anita won with "Ring my Bell" against Donna's "Hot Stuff". but it was only a battle .. Donna won the war in the end. I'd love to say to that it was sugared up disco bollocks, but there is a soul in Donna (much helped by 3rd parties mind you), her voice that just said: adolescents of the world unite! I only hope Katie Perry ( I would mention Lady Gaga but she isn't worth Donna's spit actually) manages a SHADOW of what Donna was capable of achieving. RIP Donita! Dueña de los aires ahora eres!
