Limited vinyl LP repressing, released to coincide with the album's 40th Anniversary. Love to Love You Baby was the first studio album by singer, songwriter and disco trailblazer Donna Summer to be released in the United States. "Love to Love You Baby" was Summer's first single and first hit in America, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in early 1976. The album made the Top 20 in both the US and the UK. In the summer of 1974, Summer approached Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte with an idea for a song. A re-issued 45 of 'Je 'Taime' by Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg was back on the charts, prompting Summer to pen her own 'racy' song. She had come up with the lyric "love to love you, baby" as the possible title for the song. Moroder in particular was interested in developing the new disco sound that was becoming increasingly popular, and used Summer's idea to develop the song into an overtly sexual disco track. The original three minute single was released several times before it had any success - and later edited versions of the re-recorded much longer track were the versions which became a major international hit. The rest is history.
