1980
 Within a year of her ground breaking Double Album “Bad Girls” Donna
Summer left Casablanca Records to become the first Artist signed
to the new Geffen Records label
 “The Wanderer” was the first album released on the label
 Legendary producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte remained at the helm
 With standout tracks ‘Looking Up’,‘Cold Love’,‘Who Do You Think You’re Foolin’’ and ‘ Nightlife’,,“The Wanderer” continued Donna’s creative output 
 “The Wanderer” was released the year after the ‘Disco Demolition Night’ event, which was held, ironically, two days before ‘Bad Girls’ became a US 1 single and despite introducing more rock infused dance/pop tunes copied by many Artists through the 1980 s the album which despite being another US Billboard Top 20 album with a 3 Single has been under appreciated until now!
 At the same time, the Italian American aggregation, Change broke out from the clubs and into the charts worldwide, with their sublime, slick and classy productions, which also featured and introduced the wider world to Luther Vandross

2020
 For this 40 th Anniversary edition,edition,“The Wanderer” has been re evaluated and now fuses together 1980 with 2020 showcasing the strength of the album’s songs, with brand new remixes by the Italian production
team behind Change and Artist/Producer/Remixer Le Flex
 After years of silence, in 2018 Mauro Malavasi and Davide Romani resurrected Change with an album that retained their classic sound but with a contemporary twist, produced and mixed with the inhouse
production team, Figo Sound who were invited to remix two of Donna’s tracks
 Figo Sound has created two contemporary radio friendly tracks, with ‘The Wanderer’ retaining its shuffling beat and ‘Looking Up’ which firmly plants Donna Summer back on the Dancefloor!
 With more than 30 Million YouTube streams, this is the year where internationally successful Artist/Producer/Remixer Le Flex gains mainstream recognition, as his two remixes inject his summery poolside vibe into Grand Illusion’ 105 000 Spotify streams in 10 days with ‘ a track also previously unreleased as a single, receiving his nudisco floorfiller stamp
