A Love Trilogy

A Love Trilogy (1976)

A Love Trilogy is the third studio album by American singer and songwriter Donna Summer. It was released on March 5, 1976, just eight months after her international breakthrough with the single and album of the same name - "Love To Love You Baby". The boldly 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 four fairly distinct movements ('Try Me', 'I Know', 'We Can Make It', and 'Try Me, I Know We Can Make It'), the incorrectly named "love trilogy" of the title - "Try Me, I Know We Can Make It". Side Two contained a further three sexually-oriented 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.
