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 the 1982 classic ‘DONNA SUMMER’, which saw her enter new territory, with production duties taken over by Quincy Jones. This proved to be a masterstroke of the highest degree on David Geffen’s behalf, 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 genre, which can be seen from reading through the album credits, 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 James Ingram vocal harmonies on ‘Mystery Of Love’, the Bruce Springsteen penned and performed ‘Protection’ and ‘(If It) Hurts Just A Little’ featuring Shalamar’s Howard Hewett, with a synth-vocal performance that was repeated on Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ on (‘PYT’), the track being heavily sampled in 1999 by Cassius in ‘Cassius 1999’.

The Edsel Classic Edition is presented in a mini replica Vinyl gatefold sleeve, featuring a unique black vinyl CD including grooves.
