State of independence - Donna Summer

Composed by Vangelis and Jon Anderson and produced by Quicy Jones, 'State of independence', released in 1982 was a glorious piece of pop music. Layered with synthesizers and not too far removed from the aforementioned duo's own version, it was a massive hit for Donna Summer that year.

This limited edition 12" single features both the single edit and the full length track. Alas, no remixes. But the track was eventually remixed in 1996 - and that was a bit of a mixed blessing to say the least.

My collection: 12" single no. 188
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, 1993
Cost: 1 guilder
Tracks: 'State of independence (long version)' / 'State of independence (special edit)', 'Love is just a breath away'
