Donna Summer - The Wanderer Vinyl Album

This is a superb foray into the pop-rock arena for Summer, not to be dismissed on account of its not being 'disco Donna'. As a matter of fact, this is a pretty emphatic statement of intent in how it really omits all trace of her former sensual disco style, some remaining dance ability apart in the case of such cuts as the title track, "Looking Up", "Who Do You Think You're Foolin'" and "Night Life". Still, this album is centered squarely on pop, rock and new wave, taking the form of a concept album that could be based loosely on Donna's own transition from roaming church girl ("The Wanderer") in search of a life purpose ("Looking Up") to late '70s disco fame ("Grand Illusion") and hedonism ("Night Life") - complete with its more poignant underbelly ("Breakdown") - followed by her disillusionment ("Who Do You Think You're Foolin'") and eventual spiritual reawakening ("I Believe In Jesus"). The whole package is strongly recommended, irrespective of your own favoured Donna Summer era. It's just such a shame that it's another album of hers that has been out of print for so many years on CD, and that is therefore fiendishly difficult to find at a vaguely reasonable price. A shame, too, that Summer wasn't able to continue on this firmly promising path had she so wished, with label head David Geffen and new producer Quincy Jones soon to point her in a very different direction.

Both the album cover and the vinyl album are used but in great condition. The inner sleeve is the original sleeve with lyrics.
