    Agreed. Horrible fit. I love the cut. She sings it so beautifully. If Gordy wanted it released so bad he should've included it on the GH album later that year. Perfectly fine with that. But on DR76...

    "Kiss Me Now" is cool. Had Diana cut "Fools" in 1976 it would not have been too pop, unless maybe Masser was charged with producing it. In the right hands "Fools" could've been a nice piece of funky...

    Basically how I feel. I do believe there will never be a reunion tour. While very youthful, these women are closer to 80 than 70 and I just don't see throngs of audiences packing into venues in the...

    I would agree with that. There's a polish on the Supremes' version, a brightness if you will, that is absent from the Isleys'. But the Motown sound is all over the Isleys and sort of absent from the...

    Someone once told me that they didn't think Patti Labelle could sing. I was about 19 and thought to myself "what kind of foolishness...". But it was my first lesson- musically- in not everyone hears...

    Crazy is in the mind of the beholder.:D

    Let's make sure our stories are straight though. I was with you at the time the crime was committed. We were listening to Barbra Streisand.:cool:

    I'm guessing any plans for a future EE is further down the list, but agree this would make an excellent one because surely there's more to include from the final shows, assuming that there were any...

    Yeah, two voices behind Diana and they both belong to Mary and Cindy. Also proof- as far as I'm concerned- that going with the Andantes on "Love Child" was probably the better move, unless it was...

    Uh, huh. And did Diana call on Flo for some added Supreme advice too?:p

    "Never Can Say Goodbye" could've definitely been a huge hit for the Supremes. It's just a fantastic song. I don't think I've ever heard a version I didn't like. And Jean kills it.

    She did have "If We Hold On Together" from Land Before Time. And I guess you can add "It's My Turn" and "Endless Love", technically, but I get what you mean. She is absent from those great 80s...

    Thanks Lucky for such a thoughtful and accurate response to that. I love a lot of disco music, although there is some that I don't care for. Personally, I think that disco's backlash was due to how...

    Point 'em out, I say as I reach for my blade.:cool:

    That is not disparagement. Disparagement would've been "Streisand is a talentless, overrated has been" or some other nonsensical rant seeking to diminish her talent or status as a legend. I did not...

    Thanks for the added recollections Reese. I guess from now on when dissecting Diana's career and hypothesizing on would'a, should'a, could'as, I have to come at it from two different angles: the...

    Which would've been great on another album, like Supremes 75, but not one titled High Energy. If ballads or mellow tunes had to be included at all, I think it would've worked best being interspersed...

    I'm a bit annoyed that the multiple hits included on WDOLG, More Hits, A Go Go, and Sing HDH are all on the same side. Spreading them throughout the album, especially the three from WDOLG and MH,...

    Yeah, no way did that happen to the Supremes, or the Vandellas.

    I'm sure you're well aware of the racist component to the disco backlash. I would add though that the folks you mention being produced by Chic throughout the 80s weren't recording disco music. Dance...

    Interesting takes! And it is enlightening to ponder the different ways Diana's fans of different age groups might have viewed her output. I was a baby during this time, so for me I look at it all...

    Yes, there are indeed people who don't/can't appreciate the Queen Aretha. It is jarring when confronted with it, but I don't pass judgement. If we all liked and appreciated the same stuff the world...
