I spent a week researching Donna Summer interviews throughout her career. Other than, for whatever reason, she often makes one recoil in horror at some of her comments LOL, it was very educational. For instance, I learned that she was not pleased with the Donna Summer album with Quincy Jones, mostly because, according to her, she was surprised that so few of their collaborative recordings were included on the final track list. So, that means there were numerous other songs that they recorded NOT included on the album. Also, she mentions that prior to recording, she and Quincy recorded demos at her home to see if they would work well together. This finally explains the origin of that Quincy-esque demo, Walk Hand in Hand, that has been floating around for awhile.
Another interesting tidbit that I discovered was that Geffen did NOT pass on She Works Hard for the Money. The terms of the lawsuit settlement demanded that she would record (with Polygram's money) an album for them to release. This explains why Geffen didn't just give them I'm a Rainbow. Geffen paid over $400,000 for those recording sessions, but the Polygram agreement meant that they would pay for the recording of the new album specifically for their label!
Also, the summer 1981 tour was suppose to be the tour to promote I'm a Rainbow, but since Geffen shelved it, it became a very late promotion for The Wanderer, which had at that point, long fallen off the charts.
Finally, reading over a decades worth of interviews with Donna, she was her own worst enemy in those days. The things that she talked about were such a turn off. She seemed to have a knack for saying the worst things possible for promoting to her fans. In 1978, in one interview, she went off on a tirade against the feminist movement, and in the 1980's, the majority of her interviews were mostly about Jesus and the morality of choosing songs!
I saved all the interviews, so I can figure out a way to share with others if anyone is interested!
