Almighty Records made a fantastic job of updating Diana Ross classics for the modern dancefloor.
Diana Ross' glossy 1981-1987 tenure on RCA is the subject of this 18-track collection, which includes her hit tribute to the late Marvin Gaye, "Missing You." Other highlights include her cover of Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers' "Why Do Fools Fall in Love," "Mirror, Mirror," "Swept Away" and a solo version of the chart-topping "Endless Love".
Diana Ross remained a larger-than-life figure throughout the '90s, but she hadn't had a major hit since 1986. Every Day Is a New Day was designed to change that. Released in 1999, the record was her most carefully conceived album in years, filled with immaculate productions that appealed either to the dancefloor or adult contemporary radio…
The Supremes, the most commercially successful girl group in pop history, were one of the jewels in Motown Records' artist stable. Given wonderful material by Motown's amazing songwriters, the group scored numerous number one pop hits, as did singer Diana Ross when she left the group and went solo, and Motown's bright, modern, and uptown image as a label had a lot to do with way these ladies gracefully and elegantly presented themselves and took over a song. Dozen of those number one hits, both as the Supremes and as Ross solo, are collected here, including the timeless classics "Come See About Me," "You Can't Hurry Love," "You Keep Me Hangin' On," and "Stop! In the Name of Love."
One Woman: The Ultimate Collection condenses Diana Ross' most successful recordings into one 20-song, 71-minute disc. Ross produced the album (which is to say picked the tracks), and included six of her Supremes recordings from the 1960s (one of them, "Someday We'll Be Together," in a new disco mix). She also licensed a few songs from her stay at RCA in the 1980s, making this one of the most wide-ranging of her compilations. She also includes four tracks from the 1990s. In other words, Ross has constructed the album as she might a concert – a sprinkling of early Supremes hits, all her biggest solo hits, and what she considers the highlights of her current work.
An excellent collection featuring singing with , , , , and . These songs, all brilliantly produced and arranged, with wonderful lyrics, show how great a vocalist was before she became weighted down with being a star and celebrity. Her delivery, vocal range, lyric interpretations, and performances are amazingly better than what she turned in during the late '70s and '80s. While her album with might be her best single duet work, this anthology will more than fill the bill.
