The late Donna Summer was appropriately crowned 'The Queen of Disco' decades ago at the height of the boom that helped to truly make her an icon. And being recognized as such, she will be inducted posthumously into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during its 2013 ceremonies. Worldwide adulation had resulted after a musical/theatrical role took her to Germany, which led her to record with producer Giorgio Moroder and his collaborator, Pete Bellotte, is a Hollywood story in its own right.
The success of the rather provocative 'Love to Love You Baby' set people on their heels and began an amazing streak of pop and disco hits for that team.
The hits kept coming from 'Hot Stuff' to 'Bad Girls' to the anthem 'She Works Hard for the Money'-and they're all included in this Icon collection.

Icon: Donna Summer is a reflection of her biggest hits from the Disco era from the 70's to the early 80's with her biggest hits. The collection fairs mostly well as a starter for anyone that has never heard any of Donna's big songs before fairly well for hard core fans. The songs have been remastered well, and showcase a lot from Donna's voice from her seductive and sensual rhythms from I Feel Love, to the intimate Love To Love You Baby, all the way to her biggest hit from the 80's with She Works Hard For The Money. The collection cuts to the heart of the matter which are Donna's most-popular songs, which showcase her well for anyone that has never heard one of her songs before. Yet, the Icon album does overshadow a lot of Donna's classics as well from the 80's and beyond. Songs like This Time I Know Its For Real, Supernatural Love, and Unconditional Love with Musical Youth were overlooked from this collection.
While there are better hits albums of Donna Summer's music all throughout the years like her 2003 The Journey: The Very Best Of Donna Summer album, Icon is more of a compliment for starter fans who have never heard a Donna Summer song before. Donna has still remained a gem, and very true to her voice, and her songs will always delight fans of the Disco era of music that is still just a great guilty pleasure to listen to today. While this is not a must buy for hard core fans of Donna Summer, this is a good record for anyone who is new to her voice, and a great reminder of why female voices don't do what Donna Summer did, sing and deliver her heart from her sleeve.
