    showed how out of touch she was since Nile was drugged-up at the time and hadn't been near his peak in years. 1980-85 was when she needed Nile [[& Nard) to work with her - IF they forgave her for...

    I think it might have been from Nelson George's 'Where Did Our Love Go'. Her first job? In a department store in Detroit from memory.

    Well remember she used to collect dirty dishes in a cafeteria and wipe down tables. Not that different from the duties of a chambermaid.

    And Berry could pay the musicians and producers for these sessions. And charge it to the artist.

    Thanks for posting.

    Interesting she was concerned the Supremes [[as well as herself) had some under-performing singles.

    Ha-ha. Me too - along with Kate Bush.

    Debbie's voice is not what it was but she still brings a lot of energy to their live shows.

    lol - we do seem to agree quite a bit. Great minds and all that ;)

    If only Miss Ross had said 'I insist on waiting for Quincy, but in the meantime, how about I cut a single of WDFFIL for release.'

    I would be much more appreciative of the single if there was a...

    Agreed.

    Also, I only just noticed the OP is called 'spreadinglove' lol

    When I really got into Motown [after diana 1980] they were great finds at second-hand stores etc for me to compile a collection of 60s hits - inc rarities that were very hard to find on a single or...
  11. Wow.... 'Spreadin' Love'...

    Wow.... 'Spreadin' Love'...

    WDFFIL had one benefit that most of Diana's most recent [[and superior) singles didn't have. A music video. Something that helped its' chart performance and chart longevity, especially outside the...

    Dreadful decision to release a lame cover version as the first single of her 'new independent career'. Of all the songs on that album, 'Mirror Mirror' should have been the first single, if something...

    That's certainly a hallmark of many 'oldies' acts.

    He produced another {ex} Motown act, Kiki Dee in 1973 and later in the 80's produced Olivia Newton-John.

    In the early 70s though, I think he might have been better off writing songs and letting...

    I was looking at the UK charts for the early 70s the other day and noticed that one of the 'Motown Chartbusters' compilations went to #1 in the charts and was one of the top five selling albums in...

    Diana could no longer 'phone the boss' and have her wishes granted. She may have been the leading light for Motown in the 60s & 70s, but was not #1 in the RCA world [[despite that record-breaking...
  18. I don't count Floy Joy as a flop considering it...

    I don't count Floy Joy as a flop considering it contained two UK top ten hits, but the second & third albums with the Tops added nothing to the legacies of either group.

    Given that Barry Gibb and...
  19. I think an artist or group shouldn't be...

    I think an artist or group shouldn't be considered an oldies act until at least five years after their last hit.

    So, in the Supremes case, this wouldn't have been til at least 1978 [[or perhaps...

    It's funny to look at the UK charts and see 'heritage' artists like BoneyM [[#18) featured though. And a new entry [[well, re-entry) at #84 is Baccara's "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie" originally released...

    Diana phoned in her performance on this album track. Just like choosing a cover version of an old hit for her 'new' career, I ask myself 'whoever thought this was a good idea?'

    The [[minor) hits for them downunder were a disco version of 'Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You' and a hi-nrg original 'Disco Kicks'.

    Can't wait to [[hopefully) hear them. I would hope Ms Ross would at least allow fans of the Supremes to celebrate the anniversary even if she does not want to actively participate.

    Although I...

    The song is ok. To me it seems a bit unfinished. As if it could have done with some tighter production. I think I would have cut out a few jarring bits - it just doesn't seem 'whole' to me.

    I...

    Is it only me who is starting to dread 'Obscure Diana song with emojis in title' threads?
