Thoughts (beware of spoilers)…
If you only know Donna Summer as the “Queen of Disco” (and she was), you’re missing out on a lot of her story.
Donna Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby” is one song that I remember exactly where I was when I first heard it. I was in Camelot Records (remember those?) and the song came on over the sound system. It definitely got a reaction.
Love to Love You, Donna Summer (2023) rates 3 of 5 stars.
