    I think it would have been great had the duet version been released. But upon reflection, I do understand Sonja Norwood's [[Brandy's mom) perspective.

    This past weekend, I bought a new turntable and one of the first albums I played to test it out was THE BOSS.

    It has always been one of my favorites and I have long had the cd. But for some...

    This is probably my favorite Miracles recording. The last time I saw Smokey in concert, he had two buckets in which people could place requests. I put in a request for this song. Unfortunately, he...

    In J. Randy's last book, he wrote that she wasn't happy with ROSS [1983] and was working to make her next album [SWEPT AWAY] a really good one. I do know that when I saw her in 1984, SWEPT AWAY was...

    I don't think Diana has control over what is released from her Motown days as she doesn't own the masters. Surely she has been made aware of the various reissues but she hasn't really contributed to...

    I recall her very briefly mentioning the Arlen project on a tv interview in the early 90s, possibly during some OUT OF DARKNESS promo. That's why I was surprised when I found out that the album was...
