"Another Place and Time" is an album by American singer Donna Summer released in 1989. Originally a huge star during the disco era in the 1970s, Summer had experimented with different styles of music during the 1980s and had released several albums with Geffen Records. During this period Summer had experienced both success and failure with her work. She left Geffen after the release of her 1987 album "All Systems Go", following a turbulent eight years during which time the label had refused to release much of her material including this album. Ahmet Ertegün, president of Atlantic Records at the time bought Donna Summer out of her contract with Geffen and released the album "Another Place and Time". Since her signing to Geffen, Summer's work had been distributed across Europe by WEA (Geffen's then-international distributor). As Atlantic was also part of the WEA group, this was unchanged.

Having signed to Atlantic Records, Summer's management suggested that she do an album with production team Stock Aitken Waterman ("S/A/W"). Since 1986 they had dominated the UK charts with acts like Bananarama, Dead or Alive, Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan and had scored countless hits all over the world. They were famous for their unique "hit factory" sound, which was basically their own brand of 1980s synthpop/dance.

The resulting album, "Another Place and Time" was released in 1989. S/A/W wrote and produced all ten of the tracks, with Summer being credited as co-writer on three of them. The album contained the typical "hit factory" sound for which S/A/W were famous, as well as a couple of ballads. It was a worldwide success, and made the UK Top 20. In the United States it improved upon the charting of her previous album, peaking at #53 and being certified Gold for shipments of 500,000 copies. Many fans see it as Summer's "comeback" album, as she had had no real success in the album stakes since "She Works Hard for the Money" back in 1983. Despite its success, it has also been criticized by some fans for being overproduced and some feel that too many singles were released from it (six in total).

The first and most successful single from this album was "This Time I Know It's For Real", which went Top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic. This was Summer's first Top-10 entry in the UK in ten years, when "No More Tears (Enough is Enough)" had become her seventh Top-10 there in 1979. In the U.S. it was her first Top-10 charting since 1983. "This Time" was followed by another UK Top-10 entitled "I Don't Wanna Get Hurt" (also a hit in Europe but unreleased in the U.S.), and a Top 20 - "Love's About To Change My Heart", which peaked at 85 in the U.S. "When Love Takes Over You" was also a UK chart single, as was "Breakaway". (also a U.S. R&B hit). "Breakaway" coincided with the release of a European compilation album released in 1990.

A second album was planned with S/A/W, however Summer had a falling out with them and the tracks were later recorded by Lonnie Gordon. [ [ cafe80s: Lonnie Gordon interview ] ]
