    In agree with you about "reach out i'll be there'. It is one of Diana's most committed vocal performances and Nick and Val's production is quite sublime.
    slightly off topic, it was Luther...

    I have to agree with you on all counts, but especially with regard to "Do what you gotta do" which the Tops take to a whole new level. A well deserved UK hit.

    Melba recorded two fine versions of Lean On Me. I think she owns this song. Flo may have been capable of doing this song. We will never know of course, but for me no-one will ever get near Melba in...

    Getting back on track with regard to the original topic i will repeat what i said earlier that it would not be a good idea to record a tribute song. Just look how this particular thread has exploded...

    It is highly unlikely to happen. It would not be greeted with universal acclaim if she recorded a musical tribute to him. There are way too many unanswered questions regarding Michael Jackson. It is...

    Her version of this was included on the UK album Voice of Love. It was indeed written by R.Kelly. There is no way she would perform this nowadays.
    It's a great song but totally inappropriate for...

    I honestly don't know if she thought she had done a good job on those two albums. I suspect not but both rca and her wanted to deliver an album asap to cash in on the Chic album and of course Endless...

    I knew that, but much as i loved the O'Jays i always preferred Jackie's version which seemed to have that extra something that the O'Jays version perhaps lacked. It just got under my skin and seemed...

    I am so sorry to hear of this sad news. She was a very talented singer, and her records have brought me much pleasure over the years. May she r.i.p.

    I agree with you. I found it to be a generally disappointing project. Too many insipid covers for my liking. I have tried so hard to get into it but after dozens of futile attempts i have to accept...

    That is probably the most logical reason, and her version was recorded before it became a Christmas standard. Nowadays it seems to appear on just about everyone's Christmas albums.

    Perhaps it would have been a stronger album had there been a few familiar tunes on there. It could hardly have been worse, but i am not sure fans were ready to hear versions of Phoenix, Galveston etc...

    I think they would have surfaced by now had there been more canned Christmas tracks. Having said that it seems strange that she recorded just one Christmas song which was then canned. Maybe there had...

    Me too. I thought it was a bland and boring album. It was a substantial drop in quality afrer the general excellence of the previous three efforts.

    I think what PeaceNHarmony meant was that she made music a very poor 2nd in her list of priorities at this time Ollie.
    I totally agree she was no producer but she did enjoy the freedom of doing what...

    M People were pretty big in the UK and Europe in the 90's. I think they did visit the USA a few times, but never made a concerted effort to break that market. Heather has a very distinctive voice...

    Yes i do recall her solo hit proud and the album that went with it.
    I haven't seen her for years, but i know there was considerable friction within the band during the latter years.

    She was always way more concerned about her family as opposed to her career. That is only right of course. She never really wanted to leave Motown but when Gene Simmons showed her how much money he...

    I know! It is so sad. She sounds dreadful on her new Xmas album,as indeed she did on her other recent album.
    At least we will always have her classic music from the 60's through to the 90's to...

    Heather Small is a former neighbour of mine way back in the late 90's and early noughties. She was a lovely down to earth lady. I recall her accompanying me to a Diana Ross show where i introduced...
