    I never knew that Diana did two songs on the show until a few weeks back when she posted about 30 seconds of this on Facebook. It is nice to see the whole thing.

    I think someone was running an ad in Goldmine.

    You might try eBay. There are probably some dealers still selling the actual vinyl that they used to send to radio stations for these concerts...

    I thought performers had to request a mechanical license from a publisher before recording a song but I don't know if that is true. I'm sure that in most cases, publishers are happy to see their...

    I must admit that of all of Diana's duets, this is probably my least favorite. But I was happy that it became a hit and hoped that it would lead to further success with the upcoming FORCE BEHIND THE...

    In his book, Smokey wrote of not liking the venue. I believe he called it a "workhouse," and disliked having to do some of the material they performed at clubs like that.

    I don't think they ever sang it live. I remember them attending the Grammys together and maybe a few other things but that's about it.

    I vaguely recall reading that Diana's daughters were Al B. Sure fans and they were the catalyst but I can't confirm.

    In the book WOMEN OF MOTOWN, Claudette mentioned an unreleased album called THE MIRACLES SING MODERN. It was an album of standards and she had a couple of leads on it.

    This is a good one. Many years ago, someone was selling radio cds from the Westwood One Series. I was able to pick up this show of Natalie's, as well as shows of Aretha, Gladys and the Pips, Patti,...

    I met Sandra many years ago before an Aretha concert. She was nice enough to talk to me as the group was leaving the hotel to go to the concert venue. After we spoke, she shook my hand, leaving a...

    I never saw an album with the new title.

    But when it was first released on cd (as a 2fer with SURRENDER), they re-titled it AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH and deleted the tracks "You're All I Need...

    I thought WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU SWEAT was one of Aretha's best Arista albums. But it came and went rather quickly. It barely charted and is fact her least successful for that label. I'm not sure...

    This looks like it will be a nice set. I already have most (if not all) of these albums. But I will probably purchase it for the unreleased or new to cd tracks. Plus if this was done by the same...

    It was sort of the same with TCB. It was filmed in August 1968 but didn't air until December. So they missed out on recordings that became popular after its filming. For that one, I thought it would...
