Album Info

Endless Summer: Greatest Hits is a compilation album by Donna Summer, released in 1994. It contains many of her best known songs from her 1970s breakthrough to the present day. Summer is best known for her work during the 1970s disco era, though released a substantial amount of material in the 1980s and 1990s, covering a variety of genres. Unlike 1993's The Donna Summer Anthology, which had used the majority of the songs in their original, longer forms, Endless Summer generally contained the versions of the songs that were used upon their release as a single. However, the version sold in the UK which included "I Don't Wanna Get Hurt" used the album version of the track (from "Another Place and Time"), not the more club-oriented mix released as a 7" single there.
Endless Summer also featured two new tracks, the first of which, "Melody of Love (Wanna Be Loved)", became a moderate hit when issued as a single. Summer was given production credits on the track, which she had written with Robert Clivilles and David Cole of C&C Music Factory. The other new track was the soulful ballad "Any Way At All", which Summer had written with her husband Bruce Sudano. This song was produced by Michael Omartian, who had produced some of Summer's work in the 1980s.

For many years this was regarded as the "definitive" Donna Summer hits CD, as it was the last international non-budget compilation to be released right up until 2003. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
