The Ultimate Collection is a compilation album by American singer Donna Summer, released in November 2016 via Driven By The Music Records.

Gaining prominence during the the late 1970s in the disco era before expanding into rock, dance, and R&B, the "Queen of Disco" Donna Summer was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach No. 1 on the United States Billboard 200 chart and charted four number-one singles in the U.S. within a 12-month period. She claimed a top 40 hit every year between 1975 and 1984, and from her first top ten hit in 1976, to the end of 1982, she had 12 top ten hits in the UK and US.

What’s so special about Summer’s discography is the harmonious blending of soul, funk, rock, and gospel in both her vocal performances and accompanying arrangements. No matter how many times skeptics proclaimed “disco is dead” in the 1980s, the lasting impact of a fiery tune such as 1979’s “Hot Stuff”, just as ripe with a dynamic rock guitar core as it was with an irresistibly driving, raw and funky drum groove, remained as proof that disco could, in fact, be timeless.

Few successful singers in the genre, however, could move from one style to another as fluently as Summer. One moment coyly seductive and breathless (as on her global breakthrough single, 1975’s “Love To Love You Baby”), the next elegantly impassioned (her 1978 reading of “MacArthur Park”), yet another, no-nonsense and sassy (1983’s anthemic “She Works Hard For The Money”), her interpretational abilities and breathtaking range were limitless.

The Ultimate Collection is surefire testimony to all of these qualities. Packed with 20 tracks, this set will undoubtedly provide hours of repeated sonic pleasure for hardcore fans while opening up a new world of musical discovery for the uninitiated (whatever their preferred sector of popular song might be).

Well over half of the material qualifies as essential Summer simply on virtue of commercial impact. But beyond the shining melodic, rhythmic, and lyrical elements that helped her shape gems like “Bad Girls”, “Last Dance” and “I Feel Love” into the kind of memory-making moments that don’t come on the radio every day, lies sometimes overlooked treasures which accentuate further shades of her multi-hued canvas.

This collection is an excellent enshrinement of Summer’s legacy. It’s includes most of the biggies from “Love To Love You Baby to “This Time I Know It’s For Real via “MacArthur Park and “Hot Stuff. Add the Streisand duet on “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)” – the best-ever empowerment anthem – plus “I Feel Love, “On The Radio and “Last Dance and you’ve got many of disco’s finest moments all in one magnificently remastered place.

Check out the tracks: “I Feel Love”; “Hot Stuff” ; "Bad Girls" ; "No More Tears" and “Love To Love You Baby”.

This double album 2LP record set is on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in the UK.
