    Must have been a fun run of concerts with Mary being obnoxious all over the place. :eek:
    Poor Diana.

    Intrigued Mr B. Reading through the lines, i’m guessing Diana left her producers cap hanging on the hook at home for this number. Am I getting warm?.

    ”ANBAM” sounds rather good, making me sceptical of the involvement Diana really had in the production of this song.

    I wouldn’t say Diana was being obnoxious, but telling someone to shut up does sound rather rude. I’m sure they loved each other really.

    “To Love Again” instead of “Smile” would have been a bad idea “Smile” is an uplifting song that ensures the album ends on a positive note.

    Well said blackguy69. I think it important to stick to the truth as best we can. A sharply edged quip is hardly a snarky remark, unless of course it complies with a certain agenda. :eek:

    I really like “Kiss Me Now”. It’s a fun little jazzy sounding song that brings a welcome change of pace to the album I always enjoy Diana singing in a lower key anyway.
    “WDFFIL” is just to pop. It...

    I totally disagree with the article in that the black album feels thrown together. Considering the various producers used, the album has a nice cohesive flow to it.
    I also disagree that “Love...

    The Isley Brothers would definitely be in my top 5. It’s such a joyous, soulful performance that screams Motown. The Supremes version is imo comparatively quite polite and exact. It’s very much the...

    It’s the Isley Brothers all the way for me on this one. The Supremes version remains just a little to tame for my taste. Similar to their version of “Broken Hearted” when compared to Ruffin’s.

    I quite like Aretha, but am not really what you would call a massive fan. I actually prefer Dianaís version of ďAmazing GraceĒ. Back to you honey. :p

    Not so much that I remember. There were just to many dime a dozen bullshit songs on the album to make a difference. “The Boss” And “Diana” were solid, vibrant albums that appealed to the youth...

    Absolutely. The s—t that does manage to get released is pretty astounding.

    I would say she was hip again until the single Why Do Fools Fall In Love” was released. One for the mums and dads. I was 18 when the single came out and remember my friends ribbing me about the song...

    If my memory serves me correct, a lot of fans at the time felt exactly the same way. Diana lost a lot of the momentum she had built when “To Love Again” was released.
    She had successfully proved...

    One thing that Andy certainly possessed in spades was likability. He always came across as a really sweet guy.
    Have you ever heard Streisand’s version of “Don’t Throw It All Away”?.

    Good point regarding Motown 25 Ran, and your probably right about MJ.
