Info for She Works Hard For The Money (Deluxe Edition Remastered)
Newly remastered! This 1983 album was one of Donna Summer's most popular, reinforcing her status as a major pop/dance star. Besides the title track major hit, the album includes well-known songs 'Unconditional Love' and the soulful 'Love Has a Mind of It's Own.'
"Donna Summer's brassy, matter-of-fact mezzo does not play the sexy sanctified diva, and her musicians' crisp, loud beats don't evoke rapture or delirium. Instead, she and her rhythm men live up to the title of "She Works Hard for the Money." Here's praise for a waitress' 12-hour workday that sums up Summer's own post-dance queen job status, as well as disco fans' own spotlighted lives and maintains the pressure, from the steel-and-synth riffs of "Stop, Look & Listen" to the impatient tenderness of "People, People." No one writes about love with as mesmeric a sense of wonder as Summer confesses in "Love Has a Mind of Its Own," "Unconditional Love," and "I Do Believe (I Fell in Love)." (Michael Freedberg, AMG)
"Those lovely guys over at Culture Facotry in the US have just turned their very welcome attention to a couple of iconic albums from the undisputed queen of disco, the late great Donna Summer... And it s not all about looks with Culture Factory either and despite the fact that this will look terrific on the shelf, it also sounds as fresh as a daisy." (Paul Nixon, Ipswich Times)

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.
