    On The Radio. Greatest Hits Volumes I & II by Donna Summer was released on Casablanca Records in 1979. From Wikipedia:

    It was her fourth consecutive double album, and also made her the first person ever to take three consecutive double albums to the number one spot on the U.S. album chart. This would become Summer’s third multi-platinum album to date.

    The album cover concept is credited to Summer herself, with graphic design by David Fleming (Gribbitt!) and photography by Harry Langdon.

    Broadway Engraved (1928) is paired with cleverly customized Kaufmann Bold (1936) and caps from Harry (1966).

    Detail of the original (top), compared to unmodified Kaufmann Bold (bottom, URW’s digitization). Entry strokes in n and t were dropped; closed loops in t, h, R straightened; crossbar in t, leg in R, and exit stroke in o were extended; and i dot was turned into a stroke.
