    Not sure how Diana and A&S reunited. But they had recently gotten together for some new material for THE WIZ soundtrack so maybe it started there. Berry might very well have been put out just by the...

    I've been to the cafes in NY and Boston and I don't recall seeing any of her memorabilia in either. That said, I don't see much there of pop/soul acts. No Diana, no Aretha, no Gladys, etc.

    It is a nice track and Martha does a great vocal on it. Although it was included on their 1974 ANTHOLOGY, it wasn't a single. Re the background vocals, I'm not an expert on the voices of Lois and...

    Valerie's second solo album had a lot of NY recording connections as well, in terms of the musicians. From what I understand, A & S never moved to Detroit when they signed with Motown. They would...

    It might have only taken place during her Universal Ampitheatre shows that year. I don't know if it happened at Radio City. I know it didn't occur when I saw her TOUR'79.

    I think "diana" had a bit of a bumpy start as well. If I remember correctly, Motown didn't release a single for a month. Initially they were going with I'M COMING OUT, then they switched to UPSIDE...

    In her book, Diana wrote that Berry compared others to her often. Not just within the group but amongst the other Motown acts as well. As a result,she felt many of them turned against her. Berry...

    I have to look at the book again. But I believe it was a quote from Flo. She mentioned that two film producers caught the Supremes act in San Francisco and were interested in her. But Berry told...

    The only place I heard it was (again) in Tony Turner's book, and we know how reliable that is. He places the timeline around the time that she left the group.

    If I had to go with a ballad, I think ALL FOR ONE is more single-like. It might have done well on the r&b chart but I don't think it would have crossed over.
