    I believe Mary wrote in SUPREME FAITH that Lynda wanted too much money to do the tour.

    I don't have any of her albums, I'm afraid. I did see her perform once on SOUL TRAIN, promoting the first one most likely. I've since seen her in some Tyler Perry plays and a hilarious episode of...

    Many years later, in the early 2000s, Aretha would sing STILL WATER in concert as part of a Motown medley.

    I had a similar experience with Dionne. I saw her in the summer of 1981 when HOT! LIVE AND OTHERWISE was her current album. She sang the first single release SOME CHANGES ARE FOR GOOD and then made a...

    I think it is a nice recording but I would have never thought of it as a single, at least not the second single. I would have gone with NO ONE GETS THE PRIZE.

    I really liked both Supremes/Tempts albums. The fact that they are full of covers doesn't bother me at all. I think their performances of SWEET INSPIRATION, A PLACE IN THE SUN, and STUBBORN KIND OF...

    Maybe they are releasing his 1974 MARVIN GAYE LIVE! album again. It was recorded in Oakland. Or as already said, maybe a dvd.

    Honestly I haven't looked at it in some time so I don't remember many of them. I do remember a nice photo of her in a gold pantsuit against a setting sun.

    When she hit my area in 1980, she was red hot with the "diana" album. She was booked for three shows and ended up doing three more due to the demand. I figured she would do many of its songs...

    Great news. I saw the show last November and loved it so much that I bought tickets to see it again this past March. Unfortunately, the pandemic made that impossible.

    She did a few album tracks from BABY IT'S ME and ROSS during TOUR '79. But I think THE BOSS was really the first one where she did quite a few album tracks while it was a current release. She sang...

    That was during the time when she was doing the show with the movie screen and such. I gather that since Westbury was a venue in-the-round, she had to restage her act.

    That makes sense. She sang it when she hosted the Tonight Show in 1979 and I was wondering where this song came from, as it wasn't in the act when I saw her earlier that year.
