    Bluebrock, thank you so much for restating what happened. RCA bungled it from the get go and is largely responsible for the loss on their investment. Did they even recommend another producer to helm...

    The Gaudio cuts are my favorite along with Love Me, Sleepiní, You and LTISH. For me, this is my favorite of what I would call the three thrown together without a plan albums. The other 2 being...

    Well, that unfettered control was their first and biggest mistake. Also, as posted later by Bluebrock and Midnightman, why would you invest $20 million dollars in an artist and then not give them the...
  4. Yes, to me, that was her biggest mistake at RCA....

    Yes, to me, that was her biggest mistake at RCA. I donít hate Eaten Alive but after Swept Away, it was the perfect time for a new Nile Rodgers produced album, not 1989 with WO. Lol He was the biggest...

    I loved The Wanderer too!. Looking Up should have been a single. I did see Donna several times after the album came out and she never performed The Wanderer while Diana to this day still performs...

    Youíre welcome. It was just to provide some clarity. The single was a big hit and the album went platinum plus. Again, artistic merit can always be debated. As they say one personís trash is...

    I didnít say they selected the material but they still had some type of control. Quincy was slated to produce the debut but it was RCA that couldnít wait.

    Also, by that time RCA was pretty much...

    Sorry to push this back up again but does anyone know if there are official remixes coming on Thank You?

    RCA was also a crap box of a record company. They spent all this money on established artists and really didnít do much to generate returns on their investment. Kenny Rogers and Barry Manilow were...

    The Supremes and Diana Motown Anthologies from 2001 and Swept Away Expanded Edition.

    We can debate artistic merits but it really didnít ride the coattails of the The Boss or Diana 80. If it was just that, the single would have risen and dropped quickly.

    It stayed in the Billboard...

    Have official remixes been commissioned? All those remixes appear to be unofficial/fan remixes. Considering the success Diana has had with remixes in the past few years, I hope that remixes of Thank...

    I am not opposed to another duet, just donít want a record full of them. I agree with the age appropriate Lionel but actually would love one with either Smokey or Stevie or 3 duets. Lol As long as...
  14. I am just happy that it is all new music and itís...

    I am just happy that it is all new music and itís all her. It doesnít appear to be weighted down with featured artists and duets in order to obtain a hit. I dreaded that it would be an all...

    No doubt. That happens with every major artist. Diana like most icons is polarizing. I was on a Donna Summer fan site and there were bitchy comments from the usual suspects just hating Diana without...

    Swept Away is and remains my favorite of the RCA years. Still love Muscles and Anywhere You Run To is a particular favorite from SE. Love the horns and the key change up towards the end.

    Some people will love the entire album without question, some will have their knives out without even listening to it and most of us will fall somewhere in between.

    Thank you Sir. Very smart lady. Notice that it says she co-wrote all 13-15 tracks on the new album. Somewhat surprised, and thankful, that she didnít sneak Evan and Rhonda on to it also. Only because...

    Pretty sure it was written for Ross. I remember reading that in a Billboard tribute to Cohen a long time ago. It was before he passed. If Iím not mistaken, Sharon Robinson was Cohenís musical partner...

    I think those co-writes are mainly for the royalties. Lol I believe songwriters get more for that. The Lady is not dumb. Lol

    I figured his behavior had to be at least part of the reasons why she disliked the album so much. I saw the tour and she was on fire. She gave the songs energy in her performance. She seemed to...

    I remember reading it in one of the U.S. dance magazines at the time, it was either Dance Music Authority or Dance Music Report. I have never heard them or saw any bootlegs at any of the tons of indy...

    I agree. No one, I think the lady included, is expecting that she will storm the Hot 100 with it and reach number 1 at 77 years old. No other woman has done it.Streisand, Cher, Bette, Dionne, etc did...
