    The dotted dress and other such scandals are probably documented in dear Nancy’s personal diary, hidden deep within an underground bunker at a a location scarcely known to man. I’m sure all will be...

    This one sounds quite run of the mill to my ears. Nothing outstanding.
    “Don’t Leave Me This Way” would most likely have given her another huge hit. Did she even record a demo of the song?. Would...

    In that i am in total agreement. One of the good things about this forum is that there are still Ross/Supremes fans with at least one foot in the real world. ;)

    Not quite so sure about “Happy” Ran. I was not bowled over by her performance of the song at the Midem Festival in 94 which I thought sounded a little strained.

    We had a snippet of “Come Together”, but It would be interesting to know if any new songs were recorded at all before the world changed.

    ”You And I” could have been beautiful. Streisand recorded a respectable version, but I think the song would have suited Dianas voice much better.
    I also like the idea of her singing “Heavy Day”...

    Like Guy, Top 5 vocal performances, not necessarily songs.

    1. God Bless The Child. She owns this song. Just stunning.
    2. Didn’t We. A tear in every note.

    This is rather touching. Mary wanting to congratulate Diana and share in the celebrations with her. That’s what you call true sisterhood. What a shame such a selfless act was misconstrued. :(

    It would be interesting to know what books on Motown fans consider to be the best. I have read everything there is regarding Diana/Supremes but not Motown.
    Any recommendations would be appreciated.
