Donna Summer ‎– Love’s About To Change My Heart (1989)

Donna Summer (née LaDonna Adrian Gaines) (December 31, 1948 – May 17, 2012) was an American singer and songwriter who gained prominence during the disco era of the late 1970s. A five-time Grammy Award winner, Summer was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach number one on the United States Billboard chart, and she also charted four number-one singles in the United States within a 13-month period.

For Summer’s fourteenth studio album, Geffen Records hired the British hit production team of Stock Aitken Waterman (or SAW), who had enjoyed incredible success by writing and producing for such acts as Kylie Minogue, Dead or Alive, Bananarama, and Rick Astley among others. However, Geffen decided not to release the album, entitled Another Place and Time, and Summer and Geffen Records parted ways in 1988. The album was released in Europe in March 1989 on Warner Bros. Records, which had been Summer’s label in Europe since 1982. The single “This Time I Know It’s for Real” had become a top ten hit in several countries in Europe, prompting the Warner Bros. subsidiary company Atlantic Records to sign Summer in the US and pick up the album for a North American release soon after. The single peaked at No. 7 on the Hot 100 in the US, and became her twelfth gold single there. It was also Summer’s final Top 40 hit on the American pop charts, though she scored two more UK hits from the album, “I Don’t Wanna Get Hurt” (UK No. 7) and “Love’s About to Change My Heart” (UK No. 20).

The US 12″ of  “Love’s About to Change My Heart” had two Phil Harding mixes on the A side and three from Clivilles & Cole on the B side.
