    'Darling Baby' - The Elgins VIP 400

    Not sure I knew who The Elgins were, or if I ever heard anything by them, when I bought this album in 1966. I just knew VIP was a Motown label. This album...

    I agree. That was the point of my earlier post in that we fans each hold in high esteem certain songs of an artist. It usually comes as a surprise to learn that the artist has little recall of the...

    I never understood why Motown didn't push the single again once Hangover dropped from the Top Ten, instead or releasing One Love.

    Back in the late 70s a local DJ told Diana he loved "I'm In Love...

    Here's some info from Wikipedia. I'm sure there are other music sites that may have more comprehensive information.

    Seeing "Barry Gordy" in print or spoken by a TV host or reporter is annoying. It means they didn't take the time to get all the facts for their story, despite how insignificant some may seem to...

    I agree. I was watching the program and my answer was Smokey Robinson, although I wasn't aware that he might have retired. My partner answered Berry Gordy (even though he didn't know BG's first...

    These discs seemed even more difficult to remove than previous discs/sets. In the past I did find it easier to use a flexible surface, like a couch cushion or pillow, rather than a firm surface,...

    Right On I feel "Bill" is the most radio-friendly of all the songs from this album. I think its bouncy Pop melody would have given them a decent follow-up hit to "Ladder". Maybe "Closer Look At Me"...

    The Tops "Without..." being only a moderate hit I thought a similar less-known song by The Supremes would be the best choice. So many Diana-led hits are iconic that a cover might pale in comparison....

    I also don't think a Supremes Bacharach & David album would have helped the group. It might have been too similar in style to the Floy Joy album produced by Smokey which didn't race up the charts. ...

    I thought "What You Gave Me" was lame. It was the type of disco record that I hated - an uptempo cover that did not improve on the original. I do not recall hearing it in the clubs. If it was...

    With my Real Gone order for 2 CDs I was charged $6.00 for shipping for a total of $46.00.

    I have Amazon Prime so even with free shipping my order would have been $59.50, including tax, unless the...

    Jimi, great review, not only of the album but comments regarding the group with and post-Diana.

    I agree with your opinions of "Bridge...", "...Mirror", as well as "Shine..." and "...Today". ...

    I figured someone would know about this pic. I'm not surprised it's you, Reese. Thanks.

    I got rid of Silk N' Soul years ago and soon regretted it. I felt it had too many MOR covers, however I...

    I agree. But I may just buy it for the cover, I love it. I checked my collection and although I see pics from this photo session I don't think I have this pose, which is very charming.

    I bought 8 (or maybe 9) of the 10 titles mentioned in that list.

    The CATHEDRALS listing cites the LP, not just the title song. I love that whole album, especially Deep, Dark Delicious Night. I...

    I agree that "The Day..." and "...Price" would have been perfect for Right On. I actually have them included on my Right On Playlist.

    Good to know. I just ordered 2 copies last night and was surprised that my order confirmation stated it was being prepared for shipment!

    Recently I dug out my Chris Clark 2-CD UK Anthology, which I hadn't played in years. I heard a song, "He's Good For Me', that sounded like a Vandellas-type song.

    Prior to the album's release I was told by the owner of my local Mom & Pop record store that he heard the album was delayed because "they are having trouble with the cover".
