Released in 2014 with support from Bruce Sudano, Donna Summer's husband and collaborator, this box set of U.K. origin has a slightly misleading title. Donna: The CD Collection sounds like it should be all-encompassing, an anthology of every studio album Summer released from the mid-'70s through the late 2000s. An undertaking of that scope, however, would likely be impossible, as is evident with this set, which isn't even thorough with the period it covers. The core here consists of remastered and expanded editions of The Wanderer (1980), Donna Summer (1982), Cats Without Claws (1984), All Systems Go (1987), Another Place and Time (1989), Mistaken Identity (1991), and I'm a Rainbow (a 1981 album that remained unreleased until 1996). She Works Hard for the Money (1983), her most successful '80s album, isn't here, presumably due to a licensing issue. Nonetheless, serious fans should be knocked out by what is present and how it is presented, with sturdy and colorful packaging, extensive and original liner notes, and enough 7" and 12" mixes to necessitate three extra CDs. The box was released in a vinyl edition, and the albums were also sold individually on CD and vinyl, and as digital downloads as well.
