    It was quite common to release 2 albums per year back then. Sometimes more, and this continued into the early 80's.
    I recall Glen Campbell telling me that he released 5 albums in one year.

    It doesn't sound like all was well at rca around this time, but Diana did not help the situation and she brought much of it on herself . That is all i shall say on the subject.

    It seems unlikely they will see the light of day anytime soon. She blocked their inclusion on this expanded edition for various reasons.

    I think at least two were Ray Parker Jnr productions but i would have to consult my diaries to 100% clarify.

    Totally agree. That one track saved the album from being a total creative disaster.

    Diana wanted a certain amount of creative control over her career, and that gave her the opportunity to have a major say in who she worked with, but she did not own the record company and it was the...

    This looks wonderful. I have pretty much everything on here but i suspect i will be buying it. My only complaint is the way some of the original albums are split over 2 discs thus spoiling the...

    You want the truth in black and white?
    Masser was a very hard taskmaster in the studio, and whilst Diana had to tolerate him working her hard in the studio whilst signed to Motown there was no way...

    They always got a lot of airplay on the specialist soul music shows but were rarely heard on mainstream radio with the obvious exception of Solid of course.

    It is still in the planning stages. I think they have just about settled on the song selections. Same for Dionne. The Elton album is currently being priororitised but that could all change. There are...

    These albums have been immensly popular. As well as Diana's proposed album we have several others to look forward to including Dusty Springfield, Dionne Warwick, Phil Collins and Elton John. The...

    Much as i love her Dusty was an absolute nightmare to work with, but she suffered from a crushing lack of self confidence. She genuinely did not realise how damned good she was. Her quest for...

    She is a perfectionist , and she is fully entitled to be so. No one knows how to get the best out of her voice better than she does.

    Barry Gibb told me some interesting stories about some of the artists he has worked with, and some of the stories do not make for happy bedtime reading. I will not betray his confidence, but his...

    I was told by an unofficial source years ago that two outtakes existed, but i have since been told by a more reliable source that only 8 songs were completed.

    I am not sure if all their Warners albums gained an official UK release. Their Capital material certainly did though.

    Yes i did. I saw them live just a couple of years prior to Nick's passing. It was at a soul weekender so they were in a very small and intimate atmosphere. They were excellent.

    They were very popular cult artists here in the UK. With the exception of Solid which went top 3 they didn't really trouble the pop charts, but they were very highly regarded by the soul crowd.

    Yes i do! It will be hard work, but i am sure it will also be very rewarding, and something that i can look back on in years to come with great pride and satisfaction. Memories last longer than...
