By Søren Jensen (Copenhagen, Denmark)

Having released 9 albums on Polydor of varying quality, Gloria Gaynor signed with Atlantic in 1982 and released this surprisingly enjoyable album that was all but ignored at the time, despite being one of the lady's most complete albums to date. Kool & The Gang re-worked the Supremes classic "Stop In The Name Of Love" for Gloria, this was the first single, and the result is terrifically funky, as are songs as "Runaway Love", "Tease Me" and "Love Me Real", classy R&B! Also the ballad cuts are worth listening to, the thoughtful "Mack-Side", "For You, My Love" (both co-penned by Gloria's husband) and Tom Snow-penned "Even A Fool Would Let Go". The second single, "America" isn't that bad either, that said if you can only ignore the sickly lyrics that make you wanna puke, it bears several similarities to Donna Summer's equally awful "Living In America" from her 1982 album, in that it also features a children's choir praising God's own country ... yuck! "I Will Survive" is included in both a short & long version on the CD as a bonus track, although it's kept as close as possible to the original 1978 recording, this is a re-recording (the first of many ...), produced by Yves Dessca, for what purpose is not known ... I think 4 stars are too much as the LP lacks a good hit single so it ends up a 3 stars release, it should have been 3½ stars as this is really Gloria Gaynor's best album.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I Wish You Love is Gloria Gaynor's fourteenth album, and her first album of new material in almost 20 years. It is a return to her roots in Club/Dance music, along with Urban contemporary and Contemporary R&B. The album includes two recent hit singles—2001's "Just Keep Thinking About You" (#1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart) and 2002's "I Never Knew" (also #1 Club Play, #30 Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks). The import version also includes her European hit, "Last Night

Customer Reviews

Disco at its best

This compilation represents real value for money as it contains all of the disco diva's greatest hits: How High The Moon, Never Can Say Goodbye, I Am What I Am, Reach Out I'll Be There and the megahit I Will Survive. She had at least two other minor hits: Anybody Wanna Party and Let Me Know (I Have A Right) available on The Collection, an album that omits the song I Am What I Am. The ageless I Will Survive needs no description, but I Am What I Am is an equally rousing, anthemic song that affirms self-esteem and belief in oneself. Gaynor puts lots of energy into the Motown classics Reach Out I'll Be There and Never Can Say Goodbye, turning them into dancefloor delights with her powerful voice over the boom boom boom of the disco beat. Although Gloria Gaynor didn't have as many hits as Donna Summer or the same underground cult appeal as Grace Jones, she remains one of the archetypical disco queens whose aforementioned hits have stood the test of time very well. I recommend this album if you want to have the absolute best of this remarkable singer from the 1970s.
