    she also did Eaten Alive on the AMA's. at least with this version you can hear the lyrics, as non-sensicle as they are

    for the early years at RCA, it seems that her whole focus was "oh yes i can!"

    i agree. for a woman that had been, historically, so focused on perfection it's incredible that she was willing to let things slip so much in the 80s. She was contracted with RCA to deliver 1 lp a...

    but there were little things along the way. it's stuff you notice more in retrospect than while it was happening

    there is definitely footage of it and parts were subsequently aired on American Bandstand.

    The questions are 1) quality of the film and 2) how much "extra" was mary doing.

    see i see it as the opposite. i found the album clean, light and effervescent. an enjoyable switch after the large Frank productions. I also appreciated the more intricate vocal work. of course...

    that's what's so fun about this forum. i see this album as a disappointment while you see it as a success. and there have been times when discussions on here have helped reform some of my opinions...

    I think the real issue fans have is that her POTENTIAL for amazing music really wasn't met while at RCA. for a typical artist, her sales and chart performance would be a wonderful thing. But this...

    they did Mother on Red and on Dean Martin

    these shows were recorded months ahead of their air date. so at the time, they were probably still contemplating Mother as a potential single. The show...

    i beg to differ - it's the girls magical ability to sing pretty much ANY type of music that sold me. personally i've always found appeal in a huge range of music: classical, opera, jazz, motown,...

    given that both artists were mega hot with Touch me and Let's get it on, it's certainly understandable that motown had to do this project. and let's face it - this would hardly be the first time...

    oddly enough the Sups did promote their Symphony album. the medley of standards from the lp was in the show for years. and they did it on Sullivan.

    yeah i think that became even more of an issue in the 70s. a lot of the DR solo and Sup 70 material wasn't given ample time to really run its course. especially the 70 and 71 material

    this song, along with You're a special part of me and Just Say, Just say, made the entire collection for me. I rarely listen to any of the other tracks.
