    Recording separate vocal tracks isn't just a technique for duets. There must be many songs by groups where the backing track, including vocals, are finalised before the lead vocal is recorded.

    Given Marvin's song writing prowess it's a pity that he didn't write a song especially for the album and that could have replaced Don't Knock My Love.

    I might be wrong but thinking about the radio programme, I think it was the Radio 1 Chris Evans show and Diana hosted one programme. As Bluebrock said, she had great fun.

    TMH is a very strong album, covering several forms of song which Diana takes in her stride. I'm So Happy (To See You Again) is, for me, one of her best recordings. It was a shame that it didn't make...

    I'm So Happy (To See You Again)

    For me this song has a lovely vibe to it which I feel, given a relevant video, could have been a successful single release.

    What do you all think of the song?
