    That is great news. She will be very pleased to hear of this.
    She would no doubt have been presented with these discs, probably at Glastonbury had her tour gone ahead as planned next year. Sadly...

    I met Russell Harty in Blackpool of all places which i thought was quite appropriate when playing back this interview. He had nothing but nice things to say about Diana. It was prior to me meeting...

    I bought her first cd at the time of release and which i recall was rather good. I haven't played in perhaps 30 years, in fact i had totally forgotten about it. She had a fine voice as i recall but...

    I suspect covid 19 is largely responsible for any delays, along with many other books, movies and tv shows.

    I wouldn't read too much into this. She is not really a social media person, but she occasionally posts some random statement just for the hell of it.

    I remember watching this on the original transmission date. Good to see it again.
    Shortly before his death Russell Harty said Diana was one of his very favorite guests. She sent him a huge bouquet...

    What a horrible description. However disappointing the RCA years may have been i find your comparison with cancer to be in very bad taste. There is no need to stoop so low to make your point. Not...

    Clive is a friend of Barry Gibb's so i think he would have approved the project. He would probably have insisted on a few tweaks here and there, and he would hopefully have binned the title track, or...

    It was always my least favorite cut on the album. I do like it, but i don't love it. It does indeed ramble on aimlessly for too long. It's many people's key track on the album, and i think Diana...

    I am a big fan of Rumer too. You have summed up her career very well there.
    Her voice is as pure as the driven snow. I have all her albums with the exception of the new one which by all accounts is...

    Quite correct. Diana would not have been given the free reign she demanded at RCA.That could only have been a good thing in my opinion. We would have been treated to better quality albums.
    Can you...

    I do not believe Clive Davis ever officially approached her to join the Arista roster. He already had three needy divas in Aretha, Dionne and Phyllis Hyman to please as well as the less needy but...

    Lisa Stansfield was totally pissed with Dionne for publicly slating her contribution to this generally excellent album. I think it was possibly because she knew her Arista contract was not being...

    She is in tip top form on this glorious album. It was never a favorite of mine, but guess what? - it is now! I am enjoying it way more than i could ever have imagined. I would love to hear Ms Ross's...

    It is not an exaggeration. There is more i could add, but we will leave it for now. Such behaviour was commonplace back in the day. I have had worse things happen to me.

    I most certainly am not jesting! She would not get away with it nowadays, but i don't think it would stop her from trying!

    Her voice was a gift from God, but we often find that such talent comes with a very heavy price to pay.

    That's Shirl for you! I recall her slapping me across the face for no apparent reason. I cannot even recall the exact situation but after a ten minute tantrum she promptly gave me a hug and a kiss on...

    It's all good Ollie. P&H and i are good friends. Good enough friends to be able to disagree in a lively and spirited way, but never in a malicious way. I know where he is coming from and have no...

    She is a legend for sure, and if you are in any doubt of that she will tell you so herself!

    I think it is a good album rather than a great one. The only track i actively dislike is the title track which is surely amongst her worst ever.
