    By the time BABY IT'S ME came out, Diana was preparing for THE WIZ. I don't think she sang any of its material on tv, aside from a very brief snippet of GETTIN' READY FOR LOVE shown during the...

    I think this might have been the album that Motown released with ads saying something like "There are so many hits here it is hard to just pick one." I have to look at J. Randy's book to be sure. But...

    GETTIN' READY FOR LOVE has always been a fave of mine. But there is a remixed version that was released on Diana's 1983 ANTHOLOGY that is much better. It brings out the bass, adds some claps, and...

    That would have been a legitimate reason but since the Academy did reconsider its decision and gave the song a nomination, they probably were unaware of Thelma's version. Also, some of the lyrics...

    Suprising to hear that Diana wasn't too fond of it. She included three of its songs on her boxed set when those slots could have gone to something else. She must have really liked those three: GETTIN...

    I received my copy of the book yesterday. I haven't finished going through it but what I've seen so far has been great. I wasn't expecting to see so many photos that I had never seen before but there...

    The recording was discussed in Marc Taylor's book on the Marvelettes. It is Gladys Horton doing the lead. She even says the company received letters saying they knew it was Gladys. But I do not...

    It was released there as a single under her name only.

    Geoff Brown's book on Diana actually stated that Flo was doing the lead on LET ME GO THE RIGHT WAY. This probably confused some fans as well. Myself, I never thought it sounded anything like Flo.

    That would be nice to see. I would also like to see the finale of this show. Every copy I've seen always ends with the Supremes/Andrews Sisters medley and no credit. But I've seen photos of all of...

    From the first time I first heard it on the 25TH ANNIVERSARY album, I really liked this one. I think it is one of Diana's best youthful vocals before her voice started to mature with YOUR HEART...

    I think someone posted that Diana was asked to sing it on one of her more recent tours over there and she tried, but needed help with the lyrics.

    Other than that, I haven't seen it performed in...

    I think maybe 1968. The photo of Otis was reproduced in J. Randy Tabarorrelli's book on Motown. But he misidentified it as having taken place after a minor car accident.

    No. There are no Flo photos on this cover. Some of the photos here did have Flo in them, but she was cropped out.

    Actually it was Mary who did the intro for REFLECTIONS on THE MOTOWN STORY. She said something about the writers being influenced by the Beatles and said it was "a weird, weird song."

    Every morning before I went to school, my mother used to tune into the local AC station and they played this record incessantly. At first, I didn't even know it was Diana as it didn't sound like...

    I've seen the Nina Simone and Pips sets, as well as a clip of Mahalia Jackson and Mavis Staples singing PRECIOUS LORD. But it would be great to see the rest of it as well.

    You know I was wondering why that clip looked so vibrant in this new trailer. Until you mentioned it, I didn't realize that I've only seen it in black and white.

    As it is a track from her new cd, I would assume Dionne and/or her son (one of her producers) probably hired the remixer.

    I love Diana's voice during this period. And when she overdubs her own vocals, it is even better. So yeah, this recording is a fave of mine.
