    [QUOTE=JohnnyB;549080]

    I agree. Even if she decides to pay tribute, I'm sure someone will think of it as exploitation. As with many things, it seems that Diana is damned if she does and damned if...

    Many of the RCA songs like MIRROR, MIRROR, CHAIN REACTION, and MISSING YOU were dropped when her show's running length became shorter. Ditto for ENDLESS LOVE and most numbers from LADY besides DON'T...

    Yes she did, a couple of months ago. And as mentioned above, it was the closing number on her initial MORE TODAY THAN YESTERDAY tour.

    Re a song on the new album, if she wants to, more power to...

    I like the version that was released on the ANTHOLOGY cd from 2001. It has a longer fade and Flo is starting to let it rip.

    I was baffled by the choice of TOUCH BY TOUCH as an opening number for the 1987 AMAs as well, even though I enjoyed the performance. But she didn't have a current album to promote. EATEN ALIVE was...

    That was a Bob Hope special.

    As a kid, I had never heard of FUNNY GIRL. I just thought it was a cute title for an album. I did know I AM WOMAN because it had been on the Copa album. I also knew...

    I don't think the Andantes or Blackberries had to pay for studio costs unless it was for their own release. From what I recall, session costs were initially billed to the producer of the track. Then...

    I think the release of IT'S MY TURN sort of threw things out of whack. As it was a movie theme, Motown had to release it to coincide with the film. It just so happens that it came right when Diana...

    This is very sad news. I enjoyed many of her recordings and not too long ago, I read the great profile on her in the book FLORDA SOUL. R.I.P.

    I believe Diana's vocals were recorded over two days in NYC.

    I bought the album as a kid from a Woolworth's $1.99 cut-out bin. I played the first song and turned it off. It wasn't the Diana /...

    Smokey left in 1991, I believe, to sign with SBK. Motown was no longer the same entity that he and Diana had originally recorded for. Plus I don't think Motown (and/or Berry) was in control of...

    Not sure of the exact amount she received. But Diana herself said in a 1992 LEAR'S article that once she took over responsibility for her career, she actually had to go to a bank and borrow in order...

    All of these albums have been released on cd, along with a 1981 album of outtakes, THIS TIME AROUND. I'm not sure if they are still in print. Many of the songs on the bonus disc of rarities have been...

    You might be thinking of the Motown on Showtime special on The Tempts and Tops. Aretha and the Tops were gathered around a piano singing ROCK-A-BYE YOUR BABY, ISN'T SHE LOVELY, and I WANT TO BE WITH...

    It wasn't in the time frame that Patti mentioned but while appearing on a local Detroit talk show in 1991, Aretha did mention the possibility of a duet with Patti.

    I saw the film a couple of weeks ago at a local film festival. It was very good, although I wished there more classic performance clips. They spent quite a bit of time on the recent performance at...

    Not sure. It might have done just as well as NBH. I think MOTHER DEAR is a very very strong album track. But it doesn't have the uniqueness of I HEAR A SYMPHONY, which to me, screams "hit."

    I like the original MORE HITS version as well as the uptempo later version. But I don't think either should have been a single release.

    I would have liked for Gladys Knight and Martha Reeves to do a complete gospel album but looser than what appeared on IN LOVING MEMORY.
