Before the year is out Driven By the Music will release seven classic Donna Summer albums as expanded deluxe CD editions, along with heavyweight vinyl pressings and limited box sets for both CD and vinyl.
The albums in question are The Wanderer (1980), Donna Summer (1982), Cats Without Claws (1984) , All Systems Go (1987), the Stock Aitken Waterman-produced Another Place And Time (1989), Mistaken Identity (1991) and I’m A Rainbow (recorded in 1981, but not released until 1996).
Track listings haven’t been released, but it’s looking like many will be expanded one CD editions with the odd exception like I’m A Rainbow (two-disc) and Another Place And Time (three discs). These re-issues are packaged as case-bound books, and come complete with lyrics, new notes from Christian John Wikane and Justin ‘Musicology’ Kantor.
These will all be issued as 180g LPs including a first vinyl release for I’m A Rainbow which will actually be a double LP gatefold.
Both vinyl and CDs can be bought together in collector’s box sets. These are available to purchase from Amazon (and other retailers) but fans are incentivised to buy from the official store (Europe & Australasia only) by the inclusion of a free two-track twelve-inch vinyl single (CD single for the CD box) which includes the tracks State Of Independence (DJ Dero Vocal Mix) and Love’s About To Change My Heart (Loveland’s Full-On 12″” Vocal). The latter is previously unreleased.
The boxes and individual CD and vinyl releases will be issued on 1 December 2014.
