Its definitive production style from the celebrated Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte , vision of a truly global pop music, and expression of a woman's outspoken, emotional and observant sides the busiest co-writer is Summer, who wrote three songs solo and co-wrote five others signaled a new era in music.
Though disco's days would end, the inevitable and eventual resurgence of dance music as a cornerstone of global pop would return Summer to dance floor triumphs over and over. It is fitting then that the diva's epic set, primarily produced by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, receives Universal's Deluxe Edition treatment. The two-CD reissue includes the remastered double-album on disc one, with the second CD housing extended inch mixes. Hardcore fans may gripe that most of the remixes were previously issued on the artist's album "The Dance Collection.
A devout Born Again Christian, it would be interesting to gauge the former disco diva's opinion on this album, especially the artwork, which depicts the singer as a hooker standing under a red street lamp. Bad Girls is undoubtedly Summer's magnum opus, a track career defining masterpiece that originally came out a a double album on Casablanca in This lavishly packaged two-disc deluxe version comprises a remastered version of the titular album plus an unreleased demo of the title track and a slew of inch mixes of other classic Summer material including the ground breaking I Feel Love , Last Dance , On The Radio and a dazzling disco deconstruction of Jimmy Webb's MacArthur Park.
Although the bonus material is as tantalising as the numerous shots of Summer attired in scanty clothing, the most impressive part of the package is the Bad Girls album itself, which stands up well to contemporary scrutiny. Giorgio Moroder and Pete Belotte's glossy production with its robotic dance beats prove the perfect vehicle for Summer's voice, which is more soulful and expressive than many give it credit for.
In contrast to the seismic dance smashes exemplified by the rock-tinged Hot Stuff and the perky title track , Summer stretches out impressively on luxurious ballads like There Will Always Be A You. Another highlight is the propulsive electro-groove, Sunset People , which closes the album and perfectly encapsulates the glamour and hedonism of the disco epoch.
