    There are 2 or 3 tracks on the new album that are in the wrong key for her in my opinion. I haven't heard the full finished album as yet, but that is my opinion thus far.

    Other than the original demo by Val Simpson i have nor heard any other versions. It is my all time favourite Ms Ross performance, and i do not harbour any wishes to hear anyone else perform it.

    I hate streaming. It's such a shallow, empty, soulless experience, and the artists are being ripped off.
