    I don't think Diana has control over what is released from her Motown days as she doesn't own the masters. Surely she has been made aware of the various reissues but she hasn't really contributed to...

    Other than Central Park and a TONIGHT SHOW appearance, I don't recall Diana doing much promotion for ROSS [[1983).

    But that was how her solo career had gone for the most part, at least in the...

    I do think the host called her "Mary Wells." Mary was probably used to it by that point. When she appeared on Geraldo, an audience member stood up and wished her well because she had heard she was...

    I recall her very briefly mentioning the Arlen project on a tv interview in the early 90s, possibly during some OUT OF DARKNESS promo. That's why I was surprised when I found out that the album was...

    I have to admit that I didn't like the single on first listen and little has changed since. I think Diana sounds quite fine on it but the song itself, IMO, is no great shakes. It sounds like a...

    They did some tracks with Ian Levine for Motorcity Records. NEWSY NEIGHBOURS was one of them. I don't know if it is the version posted in the photo above but it could be.

    There was a really nice full-paged article in yesterday's NY Times re Merry and the new album. I'm not sure everyone will be able to access it but I will post the link anyway.

    I think there was one interview where she talked about what she listened to while hiking and she said something like "Sade on the way up and [another artist] on the way down." But I can't remember if...

    Looks like Joni to me. There's a clip of her singing it with the guys on THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL as well.

    I think it would have come off better if they didn't edit it down to 60 minutes. The HBO show actually aired two weeks after I saw her in person so I knew that there was so much that was cut out of...

    When she brought the tour to the US, she called me onstage to dance during WORKIN' OVERTIME. I still can't believe it.

    Gloria got quite a bit of press when she joined Tina. In addition to the tour, I remember her appearing with Tina on Oprah as well as the Super Bowl Pre-Game Show. That was a really good tour.

    It is a great recording. I don't hear it as a single, though. But it could have been a very strong album track. If I had to delete another BIM track to make room for it, I might swap out YOU GOT IT...

    A duets album could be interesting.
