    I’m Watching You - I have always loved this pretty, shimmering ballad from EA. I definitely think it should have been considered for single release. It has an adult, contemporary feel to it that...

    It sounds like Bruce Resnikoff [[CEO of Universal) and Mary shared a strong emotional bond. Hopefully this bodes well for further albums. I agree with him in that Mary’s solo career has so often been...

    I doubt she added any further Ross 83 songs to her set list. She was probably thinking of her next project by then. Yet another album she didn’t like I guess.

    Sadly I agree. The sped up live version is way to Cabaret for my taste. Waste of a terrific song.

    Maybe we should start a ‘Free Harold Arlen’ campaign It’s a huge shame that none of the songs from the project ever made it on to the 93 box set. At least we would have some idea as to how they...

    I think you can make great music and still be devoted to your family. I suspect control and expenditure were the main issues.

    Couldn't agree more. If not those albums with Quincy, then at least one more album with Nile and Bernard. More ‘diana’ style then ‘WO’.

    I watched it on you tube sans and yes, Ethel is indeed wonderful. It’s a close run thing, but Cleo Laine still remains my favourite version of the song.

    With the right material she could have ruled the 80’s. The music world was holding its breath for another ‘diana’ type album. The rest is history.

    I was playing the superbly remastered version of ross 83 this morning, thinking how contemporary it still sounds when compared with Diana’s other rca albums.
