    She was on fire during this tour. I had just started working for her and i got to see the show many times.
    I am not sure this was her actual finest performance of the tour, but it was the one chosen for broadcast. Not seen it for many years.

    When she brought the tour to the US, she called me onstage to dance during WORKIN' OVERTIME. I still can't believe it.

    This is one of my least favorites. I donít like the way it was filmed, i donít know if it was the cameras used, or the film. Also, It was also too edited.

    I think it would have come off better if they didn't edit it down to 60 minutes. The HBO show actually aired two weeks after I saw her in person so I knew that there was so much that was cut out of the show. Many of the songs were shortened or just left out completely. It might have been cool to tape it at Radio City or a similar venue instead of in the round.

    I seem to recall the full show was shown live on Sky tv in the UK. It was the full 100 minute show as i recall.

    I haven't seen the edited show so i cannot comment on that version.

    What a wonderful experience! Years ago [[I forget which tour ...) Diana singled me out [[and, wisely, did NOT ask me to sing ...) during the finale of ROAT and even offered a cheek to kiss at the end. Lordy she was gorgeous up close and smelled GREAT!

    She always smells great!
    Perfume is one of her great passions.
    When she opened Harrods sale in London she forfeited her fee and just asked for some perfume samples!

    in the early 1960's she wore Jungle Gardenia perfume - people said you could still smell it 20 mins after she had left a room...

    She certainly did donate her fee to a Children's charityRoberta.

    I remember her concert at Forest Hills, Queens NY, in which for the finale she wore A Tangerine Slacks Suit with White Yacht Sneakers:
    Diva Casual Extraordinaire.
    Diana Ross came into the audience with the scent of a tropical garden. After all these years, I can still recall the floral scent. It was amazing how she interacted with the audience. As a performer, she is the "IT Girl"!

    I think Gardenia is a chord in her floral scents!

    Many TV interviewers have said she always wears a lovely perfume scent.

    Ah, yes! The perfume scent...this was even referred to back in 1967 when they appeared on What's My Line as Tony Randall began his questioning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kyera7VYxLw&t=180s

    I'm no expert on perfumes i'm afraid. I am sure she used many brands. All i can say is she always smelled so gorgeous. It was always very subtle rather than overpowering.

    I was rather disappointed by her vocal performance, I don't think she was in a good voice during the European leg of the tour. The live album isn't very pleasant the listen because of that.

    The live album is dreadful, but she did put in some fine performances during that tour. I saw most of the shows, and whilst they did vary in quality she was very good on most of the dates.

    I think when Flo answers "Yes." to the question, "Are you a beautiful woman?", Diana Ross is laughing because she[[Diana) is wearing the lovely perfume.

    Jungle Gardenia! Yikes! I always thought that was an old ladies perfume. I can’t believe she wore that when she was young. And absolutely you can smell it a mile away. That one and Opium I also found very cloying whenever a lady wore them. Way too heavy!
