    Its debatable whether or not Flo would have really enjoyed those song and dance numbers. The group were striving to broaden it’s appeal, which meant moving more mainstream.

    I though so to lucky, but it seems to depend on where you look as to whether Diana was co-writer.
    A Mr Steve Goldstein who is listed as writing songs for film soundtracks is certainly co if not...

    A smattering of gospel might have worked well as i think the LSO recordings lack a certain something when compared to the the martinelli produced songs.
    Another highlight for me is “What The World...

    The medley has Diana production written all over it. She seems rather clueless as to what to do with her voice, being a taste of things to come.

    I hope you listened to “My Funny Valentine” afterwards.

    I thought you might, but wasn’t quite sure lol. You must be thinking of the same interview as myself.
    Off the top of my head, i think she gets writing credits for “So Close”, “Back To The Future”...

    My Funny Valentine - The song has been covered by just about everyone under the sun, but Diana’s version still remains my very favourite.

    To be sure.
    I would imagine it’s the same with the new album. Diana makes a few suggestions as to what she would like sing about, possibly coming up with a line or two. The songwriters then do...

    Not at all. I remember Diana being quite candid when talking about working with Ray Chew and how she would throw in the odd suggestion. Financially it makes good business sense, but does not a...

    I tend to like “More & More”. She sings it like it’s the end of a long and exhausting day. I imagine her reclined on a smattering of silk cushions, , sipping a dry martini while someone massages her...

    I tend to agree.
    I’m Watching You” in particular is a beautiful ballad with the album at least sounding cohesive.

    I’m sure you’ll enjoy nomis. I’m pleased Diana decided to make it a more traditional Christmas offering.
    Including such songs as “Overjoyed” and “What The World Needs Now” makes the album a little...

    Why beat about the bush sup. If you don’t like the album just be honest and say so. :D

    I think “Crime Of Passion” would most probably have bombed. The UK never really warmed to Diana with yowling guitars, this perhaps being the reason “Swept Away” was never released as a UK single.

    Interesting info nomis. I wonder what the revisions were?. It’s a huge shame the original version was not included on the expanded edition to compare and contrast.

    I think it an ok album, if a little dull in places. Problem with “EA” being there really is only one hit single on it. I don’t think any other song on the album could have duplicated the...

    I believe there were seven names listed in the letter.
    Unfortunately for Diana, it was one temper tantrum she would live to regret. I would like to think she learnt a lot from the experience.
