How do you follow up a monumental genre defining hit like `Love to love you baby'?

The answer is with the gold certified `A love trilogy'. Full of everything that made disco; strings, horns, bass, rich percussion, and a sexy voice. Everything but the glittery disco ball.

Opening cut `Try me' was loosely split into four sections; the breathy `Try me' with Donna's cooing hitting stratospheric notes and that distinctive guitar riff, `I know' sung in a slightly lower, sexier register, a wonderful musical bridge links to `We can make it' with a lovely simple keyboard bit and sung in her real voice before returning to falsetto on `Try me I know we can make it'. A charming multi style suite!

Side 2 (on the original vinyl LP) opened with the 1 minute `Prelude to love', a breathy spoken piece with lush, dramatic strings.

Next was the albums biggest hit, her cover of the Barry Manilow song `Could it be magic. This starts off with Donna singing in a lazy yearning version of her real voice. The strings are awesome, and there are lots of sensual moans and gasps. The final 1 and a half minutes is climatic with dreamy sounding backing vocals, magical keyboards and Donna's voice floating above it all. This song, along with `Try me' are still major crowd pleasers at her concerts.

`Wasted' has a funky R&B feel, with Donna cooing in her falsetto to a melancholic musical backdrop replete with harps and sweeping cutting strings. The percussion on this song is really rich, tiny details that set the Summer/Moroder/Bellotte team apart from the others. The final 1 minute musical outro of the song is simply outstanding. Great keyboards.

Closing is my favourite track. `Come with me'. Again, sung in her lazy, yearning voice.

Love Trilogy is one of the sexiest albums i have ever heard and it finds Ms. Summer in full steamy siren mode.
"Try me,I know we can make it" grooves along with hot dripping sensuality and captures Donna singing a seductive breathy falsetto throughout and then bulking up her vocals to tell you that "we can make it if we try".
Are you willing to make it with Donna or is it too much for you to handle????
"A prelude to love" finds Donna confessin',pleadin' and panting away in hot smoldering ecstacy which leads into the classic rendition of "Could it be magic".
Donna gives this Manilow classic a sexiness mixed with a contained yet fragile urgency that the original never had and you can feel the desperation and heartfelt sincerity in Donna's delivery resulting in one of her most compelling performances.
"Wasted" is a great little funky dance number which will get your feet shuffling and your body grooving and "Come with Me" closes out this love trilogy with a shake your booty get down and boogie disco vibe that's so hot that you'll need to call your lover to release that fire scorching from within you or to cool down those family jewels...
OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!
Simply put, Love Trilogy is a finger lickin' lip smackin' disco classic and is without a doubt the SEXIEST Donna Summer album ever.
So get those fingers walking and let the music do the talking....

O.F.

After her first Casablanca album, Love To Love You Baby sold gold, Donna Summer followed up that success quickly with another album; "A Love Trilogy". This album contains the surprise hit "Could It Be Magic". This revved up Barry Manilow song unmasked the Diva behind the novelty singer. of course there's some Love To Love You-ish songs on the album for the fans who came back for more; the long playing "Try me I Know We Can Make It" and the techno tune, "Wasted". Both songs are forerunners of "I Feel Love". Moroder & Bellote's symphonic arrangements make for a lush backdrop to this trilogy. Donna belts it out on the final siren song "Come With me". The album is a delight.

I remember as a young teenager going to the main "RECORD STORE" and purchasing this vinyl. Well "RECORD STORES" have since become a thing of the past and vinyl is now only rarely used as a backyard table cloth. However, this CD musically holds up after numerous decades and fads have long faded away. LOVE TRILOGY demonstrates to music critics how strong the disco format could become when placed in the competent hands of musical geniuses; Producers (Bellote and Moroder) and artist (Donna Summer). The CD is short in length but the producer and the artistry behind the tracks are worth the price of purchasing the CD. It is a must have for any serious 1970s collector as well as any Disco library. It represents a period of 70s music when chart success attempted to bridge concept albums and top 40 radio.

More than 40 years ago and Ms. Donna Summer's A LOVE TRILOGY sounds just as fresh as when this album was originally released on vinyl format. Even before Ms. Summer was crowned THE DISCO QUEEN the songs offered here are ROMANTIC! A follow up to her also sucssesful LOVE TO LOVE YOU BABY. Track one of this CD is the original 17+minutes full length of Ms. Summer's sultry and ecstatic (Ms. Summer's own composition with Mr. Giorgio Moroder & accompanied by the equally great Munich Machine and recorded in Germany) TRY ME... I KNOW... WE CAN MAKE IT...which was side A of the vinyl album. Track three a cover of Mr. Barry Manilow's COULD IT BE MAGIC with an excellent introduction of Ms. Summer's own creation AN INVITATION TO LOVE! Track four WASTED longing for an absent lover... Track five COME WITH ME Ms. Summer's final invitation to give her love guaranteed & from the heart! FORGET THE NEW COMPILATIONS & RE-MIXES OF Ms. SUMMER'S MUSIC NOW AVAILABLE. TREAT YOURSELF TO THE ORIGINAL CLASSIC VERSIONS AS THIS SUPERSTAR "THE FIRST LADY OF LOVE" INTENDED HER MUSIC TO BE. A BEAUTIFUL, ROMANTIC AND LOVELY LEGACY!!!
