    I totally agree. A great record, but a tad contrived. Diana was never a political girl and always appeared happier in something sparkly. She does sing the song with great conviction though but that...

    1. Sing Rodgers & Hart. Diana's voice was really starting to mature at this stage and she ate this material up. Flo and Mary's background harmony's were never more on point.

    Diana's voice is sounding really good at the mo.
    What's wrong with these people. I think she could have been singing "Old Funky Rolls" for all the notice they appear to take. Their top priority...

    If Diana was ever to consider recording a new duets album i myself would prefer it to be with an R & B producer to include Soul/R & B artists. Admittedly the format has been done to death, but i...

    I don't really like the Shirley Ellis version at all. Her voice is to pop sounding for my own taste. Gladys Knights version should be the best, but i find the production a little to busy. It's the...

    So many of the young appear to have minimal interest in any type of history, no matter what it's shape or form. I know this from nieces/nephews and people i work with. From my own experience younger...

    I love this. I have never seen the whole show before. Diana looked so beautiful during this period in time and appears very relaxed working with Elton. She can sometimes get a little nervous at big...

    I agree with Bluebrock in that the M.W book did not make quite the huge splash here in the UK that it did in the USA. American ideology tends to compartmentlize it's artists. Your either a sinner or...

    Diana's career was totally controlled by Berry Gordy. He made the decisions. When she left motown she made some really bad career decisions. What is the accepted rule Albatar, i'm confused?.

    I think it is a combination of things that makes "The Nitty Gritty special. Diana rarely had a chance to sing this soulful plus the backing vocals are clear and upfront.

    1. New artists such as Whitney, Janet and Mariah now ruled so pop radio was not behind her.

    It was Eddie Holland who had wanted Mary to sing the lead on "Where Did Our Love Go".
    Fate is indeed a fickle thing. It could have so easily ended up being Mary Wilson & The Supremes.......

    I think "Keep An Eye" should have been released as the follow up to "I'm Living In Shame","Shame" is a good song with daft lyrics.
