    I really enjoy all the Katz produced songs, but as lead single i would definitely have chosen "You Do It". It's extremely radio friendly and sounds a little more traditional Ross. With some decent...

    For me Russ Terrana work on the album was spot on. His remixes brought Diana's voice to the fore and her vocals sounds much bolder. I also think the arrangements had more punch and sound less...

    The key is indeed to high for her... Diana is left straining to hit those top notes which for the listener is all rather hard going. It's no wonder the song was canned.
    If the Harold Arlen tribute...

    Diana's 60's version of "Over The Rainbow" is interesting........Unfortunately not in a very good way.
    On first play, my cat bolted for the door and i have sadly seen hide nor hair of him since.

    I quite agree Ran. I think there are those who would say that Dee was referring to Mary Poppins rather than give MW any kudos.

    Diana has the perfect pop voice. A light, lilting sound that is extremely commercial. She can adapt her voice to varying musical genres without sounding uncomfortable. Even when the style of song is...

    When attempting to sing material that is really not suited to her style of voice, Mary can perhaps on occasion sound a little like a background singer trying her best. When given the right kind of...

    The music press and fans alike recognise The Boss as one of Diana's finest recordings ever. The sheer quality of the vocals and production sound as fresh and relevant today as the year it was...

    Mary sounds strong and powerful here. The anthem really suits her voice.

    I adore those early Bette Midler albums. Not so sure about Ross doing DYWD though.
    Best left to Bette imo....

    Agree, her recordings speak for themselves. It's been said a thousand times, but Diana is always at her best with a strong producer at the helm. I'm just praying she leaves her producers cap in...

    "It's My House" remains very popular in the UK. People still remember it and love it's laid back vibe. Diana i would assume retains an affection for the song as it and The Boss are the only two songs...

    I agree that she has seldom sung with such gay abandon as on those two albums.
    For me her performances on diana are a little more stylized then on The Boss.

    Diana has said herself that Masser really pushed her vocally. "One More Chance " is a prime example of this. I think it was less a case of Diana learning TMITM and more about Masser wanting an...

    It's My House has always been my favourite song from the album. As you comment, it is laid back but also snappy, upbeat and uplifting. A fun song. It did reasonably well when released as a single in...

    [QUOTE=Albator;558189]Listening to the back catalogue, I understand why her RCA years are despised by many. At Motown, good or not, she always did her best with her voice.

    I really don't quite understand what's going on here. At a concert in Central Park, Diana once defied the elements. It would appear she is able to do the same with...

    AN interesting point Guy. Regarding the downbeat lyrics of NOGTP, i also feel a more positive message would have bolstered it's chances.
