Donna Summer / I’m A Rainbow: Recovered & Recoloured

Remixed and re-presented on 2LP clear vinyl and CD

Donna Summer‘s ‘lost’ album, I’m A Rainbow, has been refashioned and remixed into something new and will be reissued later this year on CD and 2LP coloured vinyl.

The album was originally produced buy Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte in 1981 but was pulled from the release schedules later that same year. The label, perhaps with an eye on the shifting musical landscapes of that time, were apparently after something more R&B influenced.

‘I Believe In You [Figo Sound Version]’ is duet with Joe ‘Bean’ Eposito

Fifteen years later, in the mid-nineties, the album was eventually issued as an 18- track CD, although it came and went with little fanfare. This original version has been revived in recent years mind you, and formed part of last year’s Encore box set.

Now, 40 years after the original sessions I’m A Rainbow has been repurposed – edited, remixed and repackaged into what is dubbed the ‘Recovered & Recoloured’ edition.

I’m A Rainbow: Recovered & Recoloured will be released on CD and this 2LP clear vinyl pressing (click image to enlarge)

The album is now a concise, 10-track affair and each song has been ‘re-imagined’ by some big name producers/remixers such as Junior Vasquez, Le Flex, Figo Sound, Jean Tonique, Ladies On Mars and Oliver Nelson. The double vinyl actually offers five bonus remixes and in an update SDE can confirm that these are indeed on the CD (the label provided incorrect information).

I’m A Rainbow will be released as limited transparent blue vinyl for National Album Day on 16 October. The full release on on CD and 2LP clear vinyl follows on 29 October 2021.
