A much-loved PWL and Stock Aitken Waterman favourite, Donna Summer’s excellent 1989 album ‘Another Place & Time’ is about to get a 30th anniversary release! You can find more information about it here!
Taken from the product description (Vinyl version}:
Donna’s ‘80s close-out album was 1989’s ‘ANOTHER PLACE AND TIME’, which paired her with multi-hit making, multi-million-selling UK producers Stock Aitken Waterman. The album’s lead single ‘This Time I Know It’s For Real’ was an uplifting, club floorfiller and radio-friendly hit, peaking at #3 in the UK (#7 on the US Billboard Hot 100), giving Donna her highest charting single for more than a decade. Four further singles were released from the album including the two Top 20 hits, ‘I Don’t Wanna Get Hurt’ and ‘Love’s About To Change My Heart’, giving Donna back-to-back UK Top 10 hits for the first time since 1977, as well as remixed versions of ‘When Love Takes Over You’ and ‘Breakaway’. This 30th Anniversary Deluxe 2LP Edition is packaged as a heavyweight 180g white and red colour vinyl set in a Gatefold sleeve, containing the original album credits, as well as the lyrics and a newly authored 6,400 word liner note by noted US writer Christian John Wikane, featuring new interviews with Pete Waterman, Matt Aitken, Bruce Sudano, Phil Harding and Video Director Dieter Trattmann. The set contains the original studio album and a selection of extra singles mixes, including 2 mixes previously unreleased on vinyl and a special anniversary megamix. DONNA SUMMER gained prominence during the 1970s disco era, propelled by her incessant and creative driving force behind the genre’s global popularity, rightly earning the title “Queen Of Disco” and becoming one of the most successful recording artists of the entire decade.
1989 marked the end of the 1980s and proved to be another enormously successful year for The Hit Factory. PWL released so many pop classics during the final year of this decade! 30 years on these Stock Aitken Waterman and PWL smashes still sound as fresh as ever! Did you have a favourite song that year?
