About this album

A Love Trilogy is the third album by Donna Summer. It was released in the spring of 1976, just a couple of months after her international breakthrough with the single and album of the same name - “Love To Love You Baby”. The raunchy and sexual nature of that particular song had earned Summer the title “The first lady of love.” By now Summer’s work was being distributed in the U.S. by Casablanca Records, and they in particular were keen for her to continue portraying this image, despite her not being completely comfortable with it. As such, the Love Trilogy album continued in the same vein with the first side being taken up entirely by one long disco track in three movements (Try Me, I Know, and We Can Make It), the “love trilogy” of the title - “Try Me, I Know We Can Make It”. Side Two contained a further three sexually-orientated disco songs, including a cover of Barry Manilow’s “Could It Be Magic”. The album’s artwork showed Summer floating light-heartedly through the clouds, again adding to the image of her as a fantasy figure.

While the album sold well across the world, (it was her second, consecutive album to be certified Gold in the United States) it failed to produce a successful follow-up single to “Love To Love You Baby”.

    This album is nice, specially the percusion, as UnfortunatelyGr says, not among Donna's best but still is enjoyable.

    No shouts yet?? Anyway, unlike the LTLYB album, this one's all uptempo. Maybe just one ballad somewhere would've actually worked better. Decent but not among Donna's best.
