    Diana said that Josephine offered to sell her life story to Berry for $1 million but he didn't want to pay it. Seems like after the failure of THE WIZ, a big budget movie was probably out of the...

    I recall reading that Diana and Mary used to rehearse at the House of Beauty.

    Also, interestingly enough, Scepter Records' gospel subsidiary was named HOB.

    Diana and Berry had clashed since MAHOGANY and she wanted more creative control. I think ROSS was the last album Berry had anything to do with. So wanting more control and more money probably would...

    They showed a brief clip of Aretha's appearance during her 1983 EBONY/JET SHOWCASE interview. She was singing AMAZING GRACE. I haven't seen it since.

    No problem. I tried looking for the 1964 Shindig! finale on YouTube but couldn't find it.

    Certainly not X-rated in the sense of Jackie Wilson and Lavern's Baker's THINK TWICE (Version X). That one was a surprise.

    The guys might have been fooling around in the studio but it could be bogus. The voice on the monologue doesn't sound like Blue Lovett to me.
