I cannot put into words the emotions that were generated by LOVE TO LOVE YOU BABY in the late summer of 1975. It was an aural & sensual thrill that had my 21 year old blood afire. I had great deal of quality sex to that song. Now, gone at only 63… the talented Donna Summer is as dead as my sex life.
Love to Love You Baby was her American chart debut & the first of 19 #1 dance hits from 1975 to 2008, second only to Madonna. During the disco era she burned up the charts: She was the only artist to have 3 consecutive double-LPs hit #1: Live & More, Bad Girls & On the Radio. She was also the first female artist with 4 #1 singles in a 13-month period.
She was never comfortable with the Disco Queen label. Musically, she began to change in 1979 with Hot Stuff, which had a tough, rock 'n' roll beat. Her diverse sound helped her earn Grammy Awards in the dance, Rock, R&B & Gospel categories. Loved her music. I am considering that I may be getting too old for this world.
