Can't wait for whatever comes next- maybe 'Baby It's Me' and 'Ross' together and charge whatever they want for it! I notice the Hip-O website has prints or books on some of the artists, but no Diana or Supremes- but thankfully, we have these magnificent releases.
A must-have for any Diana Ross fan or for those interested in one of Motown's best selling albums of the s. There was a problem loading comments right now. Showing 0 comments. Sort by: Newest Oldest. I again have the original on vinyl but was excite when this was released. What they were thinking to hold back on a guaranteed smash hit for her in the Disco clubs is beyond me. Diana's voice was in top form here, just recently solo from The Supremes she still had that 'killer voice'.
I would venture to say this is one of my favorite Diana Ross cd's I just love the songs and her voice on this one. I've learned over the years to always buy the expanded edition when you have the chance to, rarely are you sorry as they offer extended versions, previously unreleased and alternative versions of songs. Buy this cd and hear Diana at her finest.
I recall purchasing this "record" back in the day simply because it was DR and the cover art floored me. The photo on the back is my all time fave photo of Diana. It was very nice to hear these gems again along with the 2nd CD. One person found this helpful. As a die hard Diana Ross fan, I was thrilled to see this groundbreaking, classic album re-released, extended This truely was one of her all time best Miss Ross's committment to her angelic voice breaking down raw emotions I especially enjoyed the alternate takes A star, an icon who has spent her life taking us to places we only dream of I'm so happy that this was re-release and it has bonuses too.
The last song, which isn't a song but an interview of the diva. But overall, its worth the purchase as my old LP has been wored out. This album represents one of her biggest peaks in her amazing career. The cover alone was brilliant--a defining moment in the birth of her true DIVA status This album the vinyl record had always been one of my favorites, and for several years was unavailable on CD Motown was really bad about releasing her 70s music on CD in the 90s Kiss Me Now - Diana Ross - Diana Ross had to hunt for everything at used CD shops before the internet made shopping easier.
Thank you Hip-oSelect for re-issuing all her CDs as expanded editions with lots of extras. All the other songs from that album have been added as extras in other CDs. Why should you buy Diana Ross? If you were a fan of the original, you will like hearing the alternative versions. Another reviewer said, "there is a reason they weren't ever released," which I understand.
However, although I prefer the versions I am already familiar with, it's FUN to listen to outtakes, and hear some of the other choices she made when discovering the songs.
Do you know how many countless bootlegs of Beatles Albums there are out there? And fans buy them for the exact same reason: to hear the decisions that the band was making for each song, different riffs, different harmonies, maybe even a little laughter. She sounds relaxed and smart and in love with life. I am a huge fan but the first to admit that sometimes she doesn't interview well--because she might misinterpret the question or not connect with the interviewer but her last appearance on Oprah in was probably my all time favorite interview with Diana that I've seen!
On this CD she talks about the birth of the Supremes, about working on her movies, about the tracks on this CD, and she exudes confidence and joy being exactly where she is in her life.
If you liked the original release and want to dig deeper, get this before it goes out of print. If you love "Love Hangover. Fantastic set! If you love "Love Hangover," you get 3 versions; alternate version on Disc 2 has never been on radio. And if you love "Mahogany," you also get 3 versions; all great. She has an interview at the end of Disc 2 which runs about 20 minutes only problem with this set: no lengths provided for songs which can be frustrating if you have limited time and who doesn't?
The interview was very interesting and definitely doesn't make her appear Queen Beeish. Kudos to seller for getting it to me quickly; will hopefully do business with them again. Excellent album! The basic formula is here Please give my favorite song a chance She had just released it as a single and another Love Hangover Baby Doll - Girlschool - Demolition the 5th Dimension was dropped.
Motown had to drop Diana's knowing is was the heavy hitter on the album but we're trying to wait. Only complaint I have with as much this cost they should have used plastic case not cardbroad but the songs and booklet everything else was great even the sound quality was very good. Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase. Perfect condition for a true vintage vinyl thank you!!
