Info for Bad Girls (Remastered)



Donna Summer was a disco's queen, but the general consensus in 1979 when the diva and her longtime producer-Svengali Giorgio Moroder came up with this seminal work was that "disco sucks". Anyway, that was the perspective in rock circles. Bad Girls, however, overcame great resistance to earn both critical and popular success. Originally released as a two-record set, Bad Girls is a concept album about "what else?" S-E-X.

The album saw the dynamic duo incorporating rock influences into their disco motifs ("Hot Stuff," the title track), and, in turn, influencing dance music for years to come. The ballads, meanwhile demonstrated that Summer really could sing. The rock sound became even more pronounced on the next two LPs--The Wanderer and She Works Hard for the Money. Bad Girls, however, was Summer's first step toward artistic respectability.

"Bad Girls marked the high-water mark in Donna Summer's career, spending six weeks at Number One, going double platinum, and spinning off four Top 40 singles, including the chart-topping title song and "Hot Stuff," which sold two million copies each, and the million-selling, Number Two hit "Dim All the Lights." Producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte recognized that disco was going in different directions by the late '70s, and they gave the leadoff one-two punch of "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls" a rock edge derived from new wave. The two-LP set was divided into four musically consistent sides, with the rocksteady beat of the first side giving way to a more traditional disco sound on the second side, followed by a third side of ballads, and a fourth side with a more electronic, synthesizer-driven sound that recalled Summer's 1977 hit "I Feel Love." Though remembered for its hits, the album had depth and consistency, concluding with "Sunset People," one of Summer's best album-only tracks. The result was the artistic and commercial peak of her career and, arguably, of disco itself." (William Ruhlmann, AMG)

Donna Summer
Maintaining an unbroken string of hits throughout the 70s and 80s, most of which she wrote, Donna Summer (1948-2012) holds the record for most consecutive double albums to hit #1 on the Billboard charts (three) and is the first woman to have four #1 singles in a twelve-month period, three as a solo artist and one as a duo with Barbra Streisand. A five-time Grammy Award-winner, she was the first artist to win the Grammy for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female (1979, "Hot Stuff"), as well as the first-ever recipient of the Grammy for Best Dance Recording (1997, "Carry On").

She held six American Music Awards, three consecutive #1 platinum double albums (she’s the only artist, male or female, ever to accomplish this), 11 gold albums, four #1 singles, 2 platinum singles, and 12 gold singles. Donna was also the first female artist to have a #1 single and #1 album on the Billboard charts simultaneously (“MacArthur Park” and Live & More, 1978), a feat she also repeated six months later (“Hot Stuff” and Bad Girls, 1979). She has charted 21 #1 hits on the Billboard Disco/Dance charts over a period of 25 years, a milestone solidifying her as THE Queen of Dance. In 2004, she became one of the first inductees, as both an Artist Inductee and a Record Inductee (for 1977's "I Feel Love") into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in New York City.

In 2013, Donna Summer was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It is estimated that Ms. Summer has sold more than 130 million records worldwide.
