    I love "Leave a little room" as it really fit's Diana's voice (much better fit then the original version by Fifth Dimension's Billy Davis' Jr.), particularly how she sings the ending. I prefer the...

    You're so right! Good to see that. I couldn't find a proper citation in the original Playbill program or on the album. But yes, it's there on the end credits of the television special.

    Thanks for pointing this out, I never realized that. Quite remarkable that Hansberry is not credited anywhere!

    Thanks. I realize she means James Baldwin when she says Jimmy. It's about what she says just before that, at 0:09.

    Actually, it does sound like that, but that really sounds weirds and breaks with the style of the rest of the speech. It seems to've been added later...

    I love the Diana & Marvin album and I really don't understand the criticism that there is no chemistry between the two singers. There really is (at least to my ears) on songs like "You Are...

    I always loved Change of Heart and it would made a logical single choice as it was written by Graham Lyle and Terry Britten, who also wrote "What's Love Got To Do With It." If I remember correctly,...

    All the different cover versions of songs is what I have always loved about Motown, to hear what different singers/groups do with the same song. Songs like "This Old Heart of Mine": Even though the...

    The first five -- side A and first track of side B -- were produced by Gary Katz. "Love or Loneliness" and "Up Front" were produced by Ray Parker Jr, and "Girls" was produced by Ross herself. The...

    Don't want to get our hopes up to high. It took Nile Rodgers a couple of years to finally get the new Chic album released. But -- as I have said before -- I would love Ross to work with Alicia Keys...

    One Love in My Lifetime was one of those more "obscure" Diana Ross songs that would get some airplay back in the 1980s on Dutch radio, even though the single never charted when released in 1976. Now...
