    One of my favorite Ross recordings. I saw her sing it live once and she was fantastic.

    Is Cissy Houston in the background on the recording? I've always thought that I could hear her voice within...

    Also, Aretha has a very powerful recording of this song. Ross' wouldn't have rated as a single compared to Marvin/Tammi and Aretha.

    Is there additional unreleased material in an Arista or PI vault somewhere? The biography gave me the impression that not everything she recorded was released. But maybe we have everything now.

    We love Phyllis. This compilation is missing one crucial track -- "Love Is Here" with Pharoah Sanders. One of her rare vocal performances where she conveys jubilation.

    I noted that as well. The special made it seem as if Gordy was supportive and eager for Marvin to complete his 'protest' record. I have always heard the opposite. A little revisionist history?

    It was very good. Short and somewhat superficial but perfect for those who are not as familiar with Marvin Gaye or 'What's Going On' as we are.

    Thrilled for Tina, it is long overdue. She should have been the first twice-inducted female.

    Not sure what it will take to get Chaka into the HOF. She is nominated year after year but keeps...

    Interesting. At the time of the Ross duet -- which was first released on the Iglesias album -- there were rumors that they were an 'item.' But even my 15 year old spidey-sense told me that was just...

    Condolences on the loss of your friend. It will be odd as we are expected to resume the joys of music, arts and culture as we are grieving the friends and loved ones we lost during the last year.

    I've long wondered how they have never had the occasion to sing that song live since the Oscars telecast 40 years ago. EL is the biggest song in both of their catalogs by some measures [weeks at No.1...

    Got it. Thanks for sharing that information, Bluebrock. It has helped place the RCA years into perspective for me. Ross had more business savvy than I gave her credit for. Maybe, nearing 40, she...

    Bianca Lawson -- a Gordy -- looked remarkably like a young Ross. That was a good casting choice.

    I never heard a hit single. 'Chain Reaction' was a nice album track but I couldn't imagine folks buying the single, and in the U.S. they did not.
