    Judging by previous telecasts, I'm sure there will be some contemporary artists taking part in the Berry tribute. But I can't see them doing it without having Diana, Smokey, and Stevie involved in...

    I've never heard Billy's version of this song. Shirley Horn did the vocal for the film.

    I'm sure they must have. It has been written that they did HE'S SEVENTEEN live and that was only a b-side. So I'd bet that BP was in the set list as well.

    I suspect there aren't a lot of additional tracks for THE BOSS and DIANA [[1980) because by that time, Diana probably realized the small fortune she spent on unreleased recordings over the years.

    You never know. But if there was one, I would think it would already be out.

    I think if she had released Central Park on VHS back in the 80s it would have been a big seller. The HBO '79 concert was already available on vhs by that time and her 1984 video collection was...

    I think they could have released a single out of her performance of RIBBON IN THE SKY. IMO, it was her best vocal of the day, along with MIRROR, MIRROR.

    Back in 1983, one of my local stations...

    I always thought CARRY ON could have been a single and gone on to replace I WILL SURVIVE in her act.

    I forgot to list that Martha also used to perform I'LL HAVE TO LET HIM GO a lot. I was very surprised the first time I saw her do it as it wasn't a hit but it was a nice surprise.
  11. I like them both but I prefer the ballad....

    I like them both but I prefer the ballad. Something about Diana's vocal performance really gets to me, probably because she was going through her divorce from Arne at the time.

    And yes, there was...

    In the 1984 book NOWHERE TO RUN [by Gerri Hershey], Diana mentioned how much of a pleasure it was to have gay fans at her show.

    To my knowledge, her first interview with gay press was a 1999...

    I've always said that IMO, THE SUPREMES [[75) album contains Mary's best and most consistent vocals. There's a sense of growth and confidence that I didn't hear previously.

    I particularly like...

    I never thought of Diana's THERE GOES MY BABY as any more than a decent album track. But I think an updated rendition, similar to what Donna Summer did with it, might have been nice to hear.

    This is a rare one. It is nice to hear Dennis' take on it. I only wish it were the whole song.

    Elton did write the liner notes for their 1971 album TOUCH so it probably happened around that time. I think he had been big in the US for a year or so at that point. So Motown must have realized the...

    But for real, I can remember going to Amateur Night circa 2000 and being slightly disappointed that Eva wasn't there.

    They were probably trying to have fresh product for the distributors to coincide with the Copa engagement, especially since the last couple of albums hadn't done as well as WDOLG.

    Questlove has said in more than one article that there was 40 hours of footage. How he decided what to include had to be quite a chore.

    I've seen Martha and the Vandellas many times in concert since 1988. For most of those years, the set list was basically the same:
