    The late 70s timeframe was very odd as far as Motown went. But "Sleepin'"??? It was awful and that's exactly what it did. LTISH was country/pop but still weak for a Diana Ross single. Then Ross 76 kicked in with "Love Hangover" but the album itself was only worth the other singles, "Do You Know" and "A Little Time". "One Love In My Lifetime" was also very weak. By the time Ross 78 came around it was a huge disappointment to see "Sorry Doesn't Always" and "Together" boarding the bus so late then that dreadful, "Reach Out I'll Be There" from 1971. What was the point of that? They had plenty of material to make a cohesive album. The only thing saving it was "Lovin', Livin, Given'", "What You Gave Me", "You Were The One" and "Never Say I Don't Love You". Then that horrible album cover...I remember reading an article where Ross said she wanted to do an album cover with her holding a cigarette and the smoke spelled out her name. I thought it may be a clever idea but I didn't know it was going to be a cartoon. They almost had a great album but completely missed the boat with the exception of those four songs. Just my opinion but the only albums that I have enjoyed to this day are, Diana Ross 1970, Surrender and The Boss, obviously all Ashford & Simpson productions. The rest are hole punched bargain bin. She had, what, six #1 singles? But she had more bombs than most people think. I do give her credit though as a magnificent performer and I have seen her twice and I certainly would not deny her legacy. I think the best part was with The Supremes but it was clear she could stand alone and did it very well.

    Ok. Yes I knew if these. I though they found more recently. Thank you.
