Live and More is the first live album recorded by American singer-songwriter Donna Summerand it I Love You - Donna Summer - Live And More her second double albumreleased on August 28, by Casablanca Records. The live concert featured on the first three sides of this double album was recorded in the Universal AmphitheaterLos AngelesCalifornia in During the concert, Summer performed a large number of her disco songs - both her hit singles, and a selection of songs from her previous album, Once Upon a Time.
However, in this album, Donna also experiments with other musical styles such as jazz, in a medley she named "The My Man Medley". She also performed a version of the ballad " The Way We Were ", originally recorded by Barbra Streisand for the film of the same name, again, never previously recorded by Summer, but a big favorite of her live concerts. This was followed by a self-written ballad called "Mimi's Song", dedicated to her young daughter, Mimi. Mimi was present at this concert for Summer Suicide Silence - The Cleansing sing the song to her, and she is heard on the recording saying goodnight to the audience!
This hit song is included on the soundtrack of the film Thank God It's Fridayin which Summer had also acted. A personal favorite of Summer's, it was one of the first disco songs to feature a slow ballad-tempo both at the beginning and in the middle of the song.
This would become a format that Summer would use on several other songs. Combine XXX - Due Process - Combine XXIII-XXXV versions of "Last Dance" have the slow part removed from the middle but keeps it at the beginning.
The full version, however, was sung at this concert. The fourth and final side of this double LP album contains a new studio recording entitled "MacArthur Park Suite", which is a medley of four songs including the main song " MacArthur Park ", originally recorded as a ballad by the Irish actor Richard Harris.
Summer's disco version was edited and issued as a single, and it became one of her biggest hits - her first number one song on the American Billboard Hot singles chart, and a Top five song in the United Kingdom. Another song in the medley, " Heaven Knows " was an American Top five hit, and it featured vocals by Joe Esposito of the Brooklyn Dreams musical group.
That group included the musician Bruce Sudanowhom Summer would later marry. Live and More would become Summer's first number one double album in the United States, and achieved double platinum status in the U. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
