    Worth buying for the rare Donna tracks;for anyone who hasn’t heard it ‘Something’s In The Wind’ will sound familiar….this comp also includes on of my favourite non’Donna productions in the beautiful ‘Fly Too High’ by Janis Ian from’79 that should have been a massive hit.

    Nice to see Melissa Manchester’s “Thief of Hearts” on CD.
