Lady of the Night (album)
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
"By 1975, Summer had been living in Germany for eight years and had participated in several musical theatre shows. She had also released an album in Europe entitled Lady of the Night, written and produced by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, which had given her a couple of hit singles." --Sholem Stein
Lady of the Night is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Donna Summer, released on February 26, 1974. The album, which was produced by Pete Bellotte, was released only in The Netherlands, and spawned the minor hit singles "The Hostage" and "Lady of the Night" in that country. The songs, written by the Moroder/Bellotte team, are mostly of the pop/rock/folk variety. The track "Lady of the Night" is popular in Germany, receiving air time on radio stations that feature classics of the sixties and seventies. Being formerly married to an Austrian, Donna Summer was a fluent German speaker and recorded a number of songs in that language.
"Full of Emptiness" was excised from all CD reissues, as the track was re-mixed and re-released on her next album, 1975's Love to Love You Baby.
