    I agree. Syreeta's version left me stone cold. I find it to be an dull and empty experience. There is no soul or emotion there.

    I know it Tom. I still have the 7" import single. I also have it on at least two cd's. It received a lot of airplay on the specialist soul shows of the era.

    It needed a better mix. It was too sparse and lightweight to be a major hit. Mary and Cindy's vocals were too far back in the mix. A good album track, but not the ideal follow up single to a classic...

    I thought it was no more than a filler on what was generally a very nice and cohesive album. I would have binned it in favour of something like Life Beats or another canned track. Come Together was...

    Simple. She has been looking after it better by doing exercises specifically designed to increase clarity and tone. There is only so much one can do with a 75 year old voice, but after years of...

    I would say you summed it up very well there Guy, but it is criminal that Phyllis did not achieve a greater level of success on the charts. I know she disliked some of the material she was forced to...

    Agreed. We want original material with contempory writers and producers. Keep the old Ross vibe, but with a twist of the current trends. Not a sell out, but certainly a nod towards what is currently...

    Oh yes indeed! Lady T was such a musical genius. She would have written songs perfectly suited to Diana's strengths. We could have had an Ashford and Simpson quality of album had this been allowed to...
