Donna Summer

Donna Summer

Listen to her "Whispering Waves" song above and enjoy that amazing voice.

Love To Love You Baby stopped me in my tracks the Wednesday night I heard it in 1976 at The Woodville Halls in Gravesend, Kent at the Steve Maxted Disco. I would later go on to DJ myself at my home town's largest venue many times but better than that was working directly with Donna Summer herself on the remixes and re-releases of I Feel Love in 1995 (the original is in my mind the most perfect dance record ever produced).

The '95 remix came about due to an idea I personally had to get Donna back in the studio in New York to re-record the vocals after hearing that the original masters were destroyed in a fire at the legendary Casablanca Records offices in Los Angeles, California. The 1995 remix I commissioned by Rollo became the UK's No:1 dance record of 1995 (see below), put Donna back in the Top 10 of the UK singles Chart again and gave Manifesto Records the perfect launching pad - a massive hit single.

The next time around we remixed Quincy Jones' incredible State Of Independence for Donna which also featured Michael Jackson, Lionel Ritchie, James Ingram, Michael McDonald, Steve Wonder and more. Once more we took Donna back to No:1 in the UK Dance Charts and back in the Top 15 of the singles chart with my new '96 Radio version. Sadly Mercury were unable to follow through with real support and allow us to make new material with Donna, who deserved it for her efforts. A trait of a typical major record label just rinsing an artist without an eye on the future for the efforts for all concerned. Now today she no longer fills concert halls with her fabulous repertoire of songs because we've lost her. Meanwhile the Pop Idol, The Voice era chases after the next McDonald's quick fix that will never last the duration of years that Donna Summer did or match her worldwide appreciation. She was a one off, truly a beautiful talent..
