    A very dramatic and flamboyant description of Susaye to say the least!

    Yes it was very puzzling. I can only assume they had more pressing commitments in the States. Radio 1 was very much behind the 70's Supremes as indeed they were with Diana. It's amazing that I'm...

    Yes she was Ollie. She was wonderful live. She is a deeply religious lady and i guess it was somewhat inevitable she would go down the gospel route. However her output of secular recordings is quite...

    Dorothy Moore who had the big hit with Misty Blue was not a one hit wonder. She enjoyed several albeit smaller hits. Obviously Misty Blue is her signature tune but there was much more to her than...

    I remember watching the Parkinson interview. It was a few years prior to me coming on board, and like yourself i heard she was less than thrilled regarding his questions about Flo's passing. She even...

    Perhaps Partners sold more copies over a longer period of time. It didn't gain an official UK release so i had to buy an import copy. However Mary's album did get an official release.

    It's a wonderful song, but i do think the ladies voices are a little too far back in the mix. That brief criticism aside it is a classic tune the standard of which they never quite managed to achieve...

    It's wonderful isn't it? In fact the whole album is a complete joy, and has become one of my very favorite holiday albums. This girl has a truly remarkable voice and remains woefully underrated....

    I guess some experiments work whilst others don't. Dusty is a very tough act to follow. Even Aretha failed to match Dusty's peerless reading of the song.

    Stoned Love is an all time classic. It went top 3 here in the UK and had the girls been here to promote it i have little doubt it would have gone all the way to no.1.

    Glad you are enjoying it. I am also having fun looking back on some wonderful, and some not so wonderful times.

    Someone posted an article on here quite recently which stated Partners sold around twice as many copies as Red Hot. That may account for why no Company has shown any real interest in reissuing Red...

    I have no trouble whatsoever believing that Roberta. She behaved terribly at the recording of this show. Prior to this i was a fan but this ghastly experience changed my attitude towards her.

    She found him overbearing and irritating. In fairness to Norton he was very nervous at meeting Diana. He claimed to be a long standing fan, but when i asked him what his favorite Ross tracks were he...

    That is awful news. To lose one child is a curse, but to lose two is beyond cruel.

    I enjoyed the Blinky compilation. There are a few sub standard songs on there, but the majority are very listenable to say the very least and Blinky sounds wonderful throughout. Enjoy!

    I watched it again recently for the first time in maybe 25+ years and most of Shirley's antics were mercifully edited out. It was one hot mess believe me.

    I agree it does sound rather dire, but until we hear a better vocal take we have to judge it on it's own "merits". If a better take on the song surfaces we shall judge that on it's own merits too,...

    My world is empty without you. My absolute favorite Supremes single ever. I know it was a big hit in the USA but it should have been a no.1.
    Another very underrated tune is Forever came Today. A...

    Michael Aspel is another one whom Diana did not care much for. He had interviewed her on his radio show a few years earlier - not sure if it was Capital Radio or Radio 2 but it all went swimmingly...

    That is very sad news. I did not know this lady, but i sure as hell was a big fan of her father who was without doubt one of the greatest entertainers of all time. May she r.i.p.
