    Dionne’s Luther produced album sounds a little flat to me. It just doesn’t take off and her voice sounds out of its comfort zone on many of the songs. I’m not so certain a Luther/Diana musical...

    I think producers like Ted Riley or Babyface would have been reluctant to take direction from Diana in the studio. This may have led to conflict.

    I think the ‘Clarity tracks and more recent recordings would make for a better representation of Mary’s abilities. Nice to have the bonus tracks, but in truth not so excited about the less then good...

    But that’s the point Guy, WO wasn’t terrible by Ross standards. The production on those first two RCA albums was s**t, not to mention the lazy vocals which sadly extended to ross 83. As previously...

    From comments Diana has made about the kind of music she was listening to around the time of WO, i would say she was the one who pushed Nile in the direction the album went in.

    I would have replaced ”Blowin’ In The Wind” and “When It’s To The Top” with “Treat Me Nice John Henry” and “Beginning Of The End Of Love”. Two very radio friendly songs.
