Donna Summer became the first Artist signed to the new Geffen Records label in 1980 and released her first album – The Wanderer - for the label in the same year. The second album released for the label was this 1982 classic Donna Summer, which saw her enter new territory, with production duties by Quincy Jones. This proved to be a masterstroke, as the next album that Quincy produced was Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The album’s r&b/pop dynamic featured a ‘Who’s Who’ of the recorded music industry, from the album’s lead single ‘Love Is In Control (Finger On The Trigger)’, to the All Star Chorus on the Jon & Vangelis written ‘State Of Independence’, the beautiful ‘The Woman In Me’, the James Ingram vocal harmonies on ‘Mystery Of Love’, the Bruce Springsteen-penned and performed ‘Protection’ and ‘(If It) Hurts Just A Little’, which was heavily sampled in 1999 by Cassius in Cassius 1999. This newly mastered vinyl Picture Disc LP celebrates the album’s 40th Anniversary.
