    oh i agree that Masser was a wonderful producer for Diana. as important (or at least almost) to her solo career IMO as A&S. A&S certainly had a range of production numbers and style. and of course...

    i don't disagree that Lionel would have most likely had a chance to work with Diana. but given his songs and style, is it really all that different from her work with Masser? I would have been...

    hahaha - ok i don't think WDFFIL is a terrible album. i do agree that for her label debut it should have been stronger.

    As for TLA, she had recently released It's My Turn which is a gorgeous...
