    The Beatles has a new winner because of late votes. The new winner for The Beatles is Abbey Road with 15 points (check page 2).

    I will only allow late votes if one artist or group get very few voters. 5 or more voters = no late votes will be edited in.

    1. Live And More
    [​IMG]
    A radiantly beautiful Donna captured in full flight by Francesco Scavullo. This is THE Donna Summer picture as far as I'm concerned.




    2. The Summer Collection: Greatest Hits
    [​IMG]
    Simple and very effective. Love the sketchy look of this one.




    3. Four Seasons Of Love
    [​IMG]
    Like the music on the album, this is sensuality swathed in playfulness and wrapped in class.



    4. On The Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes I & II
    [​IMG]
    Perfect for the album title and with endless possibilities for Donna's musical connection.



    5. Love To Love You Baby
    [​IMG]
    Sultry, suggestive and soulful.







    A few more favourites:



    She Works Hard For The Money

    [​IMG]
    More playfulness with Donna seeming to enjoy acting out her role.



    The Ultimate Collection (2016)
    [​IMG]
    More iconography. I love how subjective this one feels.



    I Feel Love: The Collection
    [​IMG]
    This one scores for using a rarer picture on the cover.





    And a special mention for my favourite back cover:


    Love To Love You Baby
    [​IMG]
    Very sexy indeed.

    4. Walk Away Collector's Edition

    I like the lettering. Reminds me of Falcon Crest.

    My preference is for the somewhat inaccessible, unknowable, even anonymous Donna Summer. Even when she's looking directly into the camera, you can't tell what she's thinking or even if she's thinking anything at all:

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    1. Once Upon a Time
    2. Love to Love You Baby
    3. Bad Girls
    4. Four Seasons of Love
    5. I Remember Yesterday

    I find this one a bit scary, it's too...in your face, as it were.

    Wait, is it your #2, the one that appears as an "x"?

    My picks are:

    1. The Kick Inside
    2. Aerial
    3. Director's Cut
    4. Hounds of Love
    5. Lionheart

    With #1 and #2, I am especially drawn to the colors and the art.

    My top three was really tough. All three kept getting moved in and out of the top slot. I'm just going to click reply before I change my mind again.



    Aerial

    [​IMG]
    The symmetry and calm are captivating.



    Never For Ever
    [​IMG]
    This is new to me (thanks James) and really made me smile.



    Lionheart
    [​IMG]
    There's something very evocative about the child at play in the attic theme.



    The Red Shoes
    [​IMG]
    Iconic. Once seen, never forgotten.



    The Kick Inside
    [​IMG]
    I can almost feel the freedom of flying away on a kite under the watchful eye of a giant.







    Honorary mention for:

    The Single File
    [​IMG]
    This was going to make my top choice even more difficult. But then I realised it was a collection of singles. But then so, too, is a compliation album. Oh - the agonising technicalities.
