    I had no idea “Live And Let Die” was written with Bassey in mind. I think she would have done a brilliant job. I always thought “No Good About Goodbye” would have made for another brilliant Bassey...

    I think if a person has been marginalised over a period of time then they might well act up a little for a final performance. I think I might. I certainly understand that behaviour a little more...

    All I can say is, i wouldn’t hold my breath for to long Ran. It just might lead to a permanent condition. :)
    Unlike Mary, Diana is not really the sentimental type. I’m sure she only sings Supremes...

    That’s disappointing if not incredibly surprising B. The voice heard on the recent “Come Together is not the voice i fell in love with. One could argue that At 76 how could anyone expect it to be,...

    Brings a new meaning to the word falsetto lol.
    This thread has renewed my interest in “Guilty” which i have not listened to in many a year. It certainly contains some of BG best songs ever.
    I love...

    Have you heard new demos other then “Come Together (Let Love Lead The Way)?.
    Her voice sounded very muddy on this track

    If Mary was indeed acting that way there had to be a good reason. Both women were under a lot of pressure at the time. Diana caught up with her impending solo career and Mary anxious over the future...

    Always my least favourite song from a wonderful album. The production is great and Diana’s voice has never sounded better. It’s the lyrics for me. Even as young kid I thought they were a ‘tad cheesy....

    Agree, the 12” version has a lot more punch and vitality. I think it should have been the first track on the album or open up side 2. It certainly needed a remix to give it more oomph. The album...

    Must have been a fun run of concerts with Mary being obnoxious all over the place. :eek:
    Poor Diana.

    Intrigued Mr B. Reading through the lines, i’m guessing Diana left her producers cap hanging on the hook at home for this number. Am I getting warm?.

    ”ANBAM” sounds rather good, making me sceptical of the involvement Diana really had in the production of this song.
    I think “Your Love Is So Good For Me” would have made a great opener for side 2 of...

    I wouldn’t say Diana was being obnoxious, but telling someone to shut up does sound rather rude. I’m sure they loved each other really.

    “To Love Again” instead of “Smile” would have been a bad idea “Smile” is an uplifting song that ensures the album ends on a positive note.
    Agree that “Kiss Me Now was the perfect song to Follow...

    Well said blackguy69. I think it important to stick to the truth as best we can. A sharply edged quip is hardly a snarky remark, unless of course it complies with a certain agenda. :eek:

    I really like “Kiss Me Now”. It’s a fun little jazzy sounding song that brings a welcome change of pace to the album I always enjoy Diana singing in a lower key anyway.
    “WDFFIL” is just to pop. It...

    I totally disagree with the article in that the black album feels thrown together. Considering the various producers used, the album has a nice cohesive flow to it.
    I also disagree that “Love...

    The Isley Brothers would definitely be in my top 5. It’s such a joyous, soulful performance that screams Motown. The Supremes version is imo comparatively quite polite and exact. It’s very much the...

    It’s the Isley Brothers all the way for me on this one. The Supremes version remains just a little to tame for my taste. Similar to their version of “Broken Hearted” when compared to Ruffin’s.
