    Yes, I love all the mixes. I think Ross/Russ Terrana had great instincts on the singles. I prefer the commercially released versions of "Upside Down" and "I'm Coming Out" to the Chic mixes. I also...

    Chaka Khan is to the HOF what Susan Lucci was to the Daytime Emmys for decades. How does she continue to get nominated and not merit induction? She is one of the most unique and influential voices in...

    It's the opposite for me. I enjoy both. There may have even been a point where I liked "The Boss" more. But now I am all-in for "diana." Over the years, I have been increasingly impressed with the...

    I have to agree. I don't want to watch John Legend anymore. I don't like his voice. I loved "Ordinary People" but nothing since.

    Prince deserves a tribute and I know they need names that will...

    Both are good albums. "diana" is more sophisticated and its themes are the quintessence of Ross. Those tracks capture her essence on an elemental level. "I'm Coming Out" is the truest 'Ross' song in...

    Still going strong, who would've guessed? Dame Shirley's life has not been easy but she is a survivor. And a spectacular talent.

    With so many truly great Bacharach/David songs in her catalog, I hardly ever listen to this one. Even though it was a hit and Grammy winner I don't think it is among the best of their collaborations....

    I was more referring to the commercial viability of the tracks not the quality. The lyrics may have been easily understood here, by her die-hard fans, but not elsewhere. My fellow Ross-friends and I...

    I love both "The Boss" and "No One Gets The Prize." What makes them unique in the Ross catalog (up to that point in her recording career) is that you needed a lyric sheet to determine what she was...

    Indeed it is. Angela has fought her way back to health from a debilitating illness. Her voice is still clear and strong. She wrote that song for Stephanie -- "I've Learned To Respect The Power Of...

    Agree, the obsession with Marv and bashing Marv is disturbing. He is the poster who is most frequently attacked -- sometimes veiled and sometimes obvious -- but I have only ever seen him attack Ross....

    Yes, Dame Shirley recorded "Davy" as a duet with the song's composer, the late Benard Ighner, in or around 1974. Ighner was probably best known for writing "Everything Must Change" a song that has...
  14. Dame Shirley Bassey - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas 2019

    Dame Shirley Bassey is simply magnificent in this performance recorded last week. She is 82 (83 in a few weeks) and she looks and sounds marvelous. Gifted with spectacular longevity and a voice like...

    Hudson is a powerhouse but she has almost no vocal similarity to Aretha. That sneak peak is Effie White singing an Aretha song. I have my fingers crossed for the best but....

    I believe this disco arrangement was intended for Shirley Bassey but she passed so they have it to Scherrie.

    Given his own gift for songcraft and creating radio hits, I am surprised that Ray Parker Jr. thinks that "Love or Loneliness" had hit potential. It is too boring and languid for a vocal personality...

    Oprah was sexually molested and assaulted as a child. I think she believes that the issue is not taken seriously enough when the victims are black.

    I love all of these CDs and have them already. But not all of the bonus tracks. I don't think $60 is too much if Dionne gets any royalties on this collection. She just celebrated her 79th birthday...

    Well, Bluebrock, now you won't be the second person to know when Mary Wilson debuts her new line of Supremes-inspired wigs, or Supremes-inspired scented candles, or Supremes-inspired seasoning salt.

    "Remember Me" is a great song but I've never heard her perform it live. I was surprised it figured so prominently in "Motown The Musical." Ross had no shortage of anthemic songs at Motown.

    It shouldn't be that serious. Marv's comments are easily ignored. Perhaps I've missed something but I am surprised that posters are so affected by what he says about Ross. As a lifelong Ross fan,...

    "for free"(???)

    First, she doesn't do anything for free. Second, there are no excuses for a subpar setup like this, particularly if it is for a charitable cause.

    What on earth?

    So this is for anyone who believes she performs simply because she loves performing and not because she wants to make money.
