Amazon.com

It's easy to appreciate Donna Summer all over again while watching these vintage music videos. "She Works Hard for the Money" features her least interesting vocal, though the video remains an uncompromising, tough look at the dreary lot of women in the menial workforce. The strange "Unconditional Love" sets the Jamaican-flavored song within an oppressive classroom, where a dowdy Summer teaches a bunch of blonde brats and ultimately liberates them with thoughts of freedom and respect. "There Goes My Baby" begins with a series of blackouts outlining a domestic quarrel, but the appeal here is Summer's ringing, transfixing vocal. "This Time I Know It's for Real" and "Love's About to Change My Heart" go right to the heart of Summers' unique expressiveness on dance tracks. These are hugely stirring ballads set against a disco drive and great fun to watch as Summers, looking quite smashing, becomes a true pop siren. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Donna a real video star June 6, 2004
By tom
This compilation may only have five videos and is very short, but if you're a Donna Summer fan like me, you will undoubtedly enjoy this budget-priced compilation.
What is very striking about this compilation is how well Donna made the transition from disco/radio phenomenon to video star. Many stars in the '70s had to adjust to becoming video stars, and some made that transition better than others.
It helps, of course, that Donna is a beautiful woman, but her ability to emote well for the camera suggests that she should perhaps pursue more acting. She's strong and independent in "She Works Hard For the Money"; makes a striking transition from frumpty headmaster into sexy teacher in "Unconditional Love" and convincingly plays a war bride in "There Goes My Baby".
As a reviewer remarked earlier, "This Time I Know It's For Real" and "Love's About To Change My Heart" really show Donna in a fresh light. She looks stunning in these videos, playing up the "dance goddess" image without being sleazy or made-up. She looks the most relaxed ever at this point in her career, even dancing freely for the camera, and sadly after this point, Donna would pretty much make sporadic public and chart appearances.
It's a great little video to play at parties or if you just want to see Donna in her '80s heyday.

Once again, labels assume fans wil rush out and buy anything sub-par just because it's on DVD format - yes, it's nice to have a mere FIVE videos on DVD for posterity, but these are clearly my least favorite of Donna's videos/hits - where are here videos/live/TV performances from here "Bad Girls" era? Instead of releasing these to cash-in on Donna's popularity, why not do a deal with ABC and release her amazing, long lost 1979 one-hour TV special she did featuring live versions of "Dim All the Lights," a special promo of "Bad Girls/Hot Stuff," "Sunset People" and more! I remember as a kid begging my parents to let me stay up late so I could watch - and once I did, I was TRANSFIXED by Donna's beauty and sheer vocal talent! If you look at other "best of" DVDs out there (like BOWIE's, THE JAM, THE CLASH, etc.) that feature stuff from the vaults, the LACK of old 70s clips is pointless to purchase for true fans - heck, even the more recent MELODY OF LOVE from "Endless Summer" VHS isn't here, WHY?!! Donna did a slew of early TV appearances singing her old disco hits LIVE - where are THOSE? Until then, I refuse to buy these cheap, exploitive DVDs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! August 13, 2005
By Dino
A very good, low budget collection of 5 videos of Donna Summer.

The quality is very good and the videos here take one back memory lane; She works hard, Unconditional love (with that shiny dress), There goes my baby, This time, and Loves about to change...

I hope more Summer videos are put on DVD, and here's hoping we get more videos now Summer is reviving her recording career!!!

I got your love Donna!

5.0 out of 5 stars One hot Summer! June 13, 2005
This DVD is rather brief: 5 videos by Donna Summer, but well worth the low price you pay for it. All 5 singles cracked the Billboard 100, with `She works hard for the money' hitting no.3, and `This time I know it's for real' hitting no.7 and both certified Gold.

First up is `She works hard for the money' which was nominated for an American music award for best video (lost out to Michael Jackson). The storyline features a harassed working mother of two, and features a scene where she gets pinched on the butt by Bruce Sudano (Donna's husband). The climax is the fab dance scene on the streets with a growing crowd of onlookers gawking at the unexpected sight of Donna Summer dancing up on a balcony. One of her best videos.

Next up is `Unconditional love' which was a UK top20 hit. The video was shot in London and features Donna as a dowdy school teacher who transforms to a big haired glamour girl who then takes the entire school for a romp in the playground. The UK group Musical Youth also featured in it.

`There goes my baby' begins with a domestic tiff between a couple (Donna and Bruce Sudano). Then hubby goes off to war and a pencil thin Donna spends the rest of the video anxiously awaiting news from him. Very good acting from Donna.

`This time I know it's for real' (a no.3 UK hit) is a very cheery, delightful video with a bunch of guys doing the running man (a hot dance craze back then) all around the world and a stunning looking Donna featured in an array of hats.

The last video, and my favourite of the lot is `Love's about to change my heart' (a UK top 20 hit). It is Donna's most joyous, relaxed video, with Donna hamming it up for the camera, and dancing freely.
