The Journey was released in the UK on the back of her appearance on the TV special Disco Mania which celebrated the 1970s disco era and saw Summer performing her 1979 duet “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)” (originally with Barbra Streisand) with Irish boyband Westlife.

The album was also released in the US with a slightly different track listing – both on the album itself and also on the so-called ‘limited edition bonus disc’.

Three new songs were recorded for the collection, including “You’re So Beautiful” and “Dream-A-Lot’s Theme (I Will Live For Love)“, both of which were released as promotional singles. The UK version of the compilation placed the two new recordings “That’s The Way” and “Dream-A-Lots-Theme” on the limited edition bonus disc – these two tracks are consequently not available on the UK single-disc edition of The Journey.
