Love To Love You Baby – Donna Summer

Good day everybody, “Flashback Friday,” once again and time for some quality R&B, Soul, Funk, Hip Hop and Dance/Disco music.
For me so long as I can move to it, groove to it and twitch in my chair, that is good music.
Some people are more particular, it has to Rock, or Jazz, or Hard Rock or even Classical. Music is music folks and it is not an easy profession to break into.
So let us get into it and spin the first artist, who so happens to be the “Queen of Disco,” Donna Summer.
When you think of the Disco era, what female singer comes to mind? For me, it is Donna Summer. Born LaDonna Adrian Gaines in Boston, Massachusetts in 1948.
She began to sing at a very early age and continued throughout her teenage. In 1978, she auditioned for a part in a traveling production of the musical “Hair,” that would tour in Germany. She got the part and at the tender age of 18, left her parents and traveled to Germany.
After, the musical ended Donna remained in Germany and married her first husband, Helmuth Sommer. After they divorced, she kept the married name but hanged it to Summer.
Donna Summer’s “Love To Love You Baby,” was not the first song to be labeled Disco, but it is considered one.
Here is the 17 minutes extended version that was banned on a lot of commercial radio stations for its suggestive content.
