This is the perfect Diana Ross record. Richard Perry (Carly Simon/Ringo Starr) was at the height of his production powers and while this was not considered a success at the time (reaching the US top 20) it has far outlasted much of her 70-today output. I've owned this many many times over the years (sadly, I had it stored on my i-Pod without a back-up and accidentally lost it during an update) but I know I'll find it again. I can't tell you how many times people have heard it and wondered if this was a new record. She sounds incredible, the song selection is perfect: the ballads are perfect for her voice, and the uptempo songs jump. This is NOT 'collection' material. I'm a big believer that for great artists everyone should own one (at least one) original complete work to get what they tried to do (even if they didn't always succeed.) This ranks up with 'Dusty in Memphis' (an easy choice) and Carly Simon's 'Another Passenger' as CD's that should be in more collections.

Diana Ross' studio albums at Motown Records during the 1970's had always received a mixed reception from critics and had always been somewhat erratic in terms of commercial success. There had been classics such as her stunning solo debut Diana Ross (1970), Surrender (1971), Touch Me In The Morning (1973) and Diana Ross (1976) whilst others such as Everything Is Everything (1970) and Last Time I Saw Him (1973) seemed more like scrappily assembled collections of left-over tracks from various recording sessions.

After the cross-Atlantic Top 5 success of the excellent Diana Ross (1976) LP, Ross was teamed with renowned R&B producer Richard Perry and a diverse range of songwriters. This 1977 studio entry titled Baby It's Me marked a more clear consistency within the startling musical arrangements which varied from pounding percussion and heavy drum beats that contained compelling undertones of pure, pulsating Funk on the blend of uptempo material to haunting string arrangements and gentle piano backdrops on the slower and more intricate tracks. Ross gets ample opportunity to stretch herself and becomes immersed into the varying moods of the album.

Baby It's Me (1977) opens with Gettin' Ready For Love, which became the projects premier single. The cross Disco-Jazz flavoured arrangements of this feel-good number, which had been written by Tom Snowe and Frannie Goulde, contained an easy-going, seamless performance from Ross who glides along the verses and the catchy chrous with ease and style. Gettin' Ready For Love surprisingly only climbed to No.27 in the U.S whilst stalling at just No.23 in the U.K.

You Got It, a song written by Jerry Ragovoy and Linda Laurie, also found its way to being issued as a single in the U.S.

in the 70s DIANA ROSS released a string of hit lps such as DIANA ROSS 1970,LADY SINGS THE BLUES 72,SURRENDER71,TOUCH ME IN THE MORNING 73 AND DIANA ROSS 1976 and most of these are considered Ross classics but yet in 1977 Diana Ross released this lp produced by RICHARD PERRY and the lp reached #18 on the pop charts ,but yet it didnt do as well as the others.after almost 25 years i am still trying to figure this out as it is one of her best and strongest performances.Ross glides thru these songs with great ease as the style moves from pop to r@b to jazz and then ross delivers and glittering performance on COME IN FROM THE RAIN.i assume that this lp suffered from Ross being off the charts for over a year while she was filming THE WIZ.i bet she would rather forget that movie and erase the film from her resume but not this great lp.this one is a keeper.i still listen to this one after 25 years and still think its a stunning lp.one of her best.check out her DIANA ROSS 76 CD OR DIANA 80!!!!!SOME GREAT songs such as TOP OF THE WORLD,ALL NIGHT LOVER,YOUR LOVE IS SO GOOD,THE SAME LOVE THAT ME LAUGH.

This is classic Diana solo.
I have friends searching for this also.........Motown has taken one of Diana's best off the market.
I can not understand their thinking...........HUGE MISTAKE !!!!

I'm a big Tom Snow fan and he wrote two of the best ones here "Gettin' Ready for Love" and "Top of the World". I don't care for the ballads but that's minor as the other songs are mostly good. I love the funky "Baby It's Me" which Diana sings with Toto's Bobby Kimball. Similar to a funky song Olivia Newton-John recorded around the same time "Totally Hot". Most of Toto plays on this album along with Ray Parker, Jr. and David Foster. "Your Love is So Good For Me" is another fun, disco-ey song that someone should remake. I imagine this CD is hard to find, I'm going to look at Tower and Virgin, as I have the old album and it's warped!!!

After garnering an Oscar nod, a Tony, numerous Grammy nods, etc. Diana delivered her first new album of new songs in nearly 2 years. Richard Perry (Barbara Streisand) began a long standing relationship producing Diana that would include one of her biggest international hits with the premiere English language release from Julio Iglesias years later. Perry had already given Streisand her most contemporary single to date, so Diana would be his next "Diva" project. Diana actually covered "Stoney End" first for her solo debut. She also trumped Streisand with "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?"
I mentioned Streisand so much because this was also the type of 60s and 70s albums she produced.
Diana is quite comfortable with writers diverse as Melissa Manchester on a stunning rendition of "Come in From the Rain" to a spellbound ing take on Bill withers' "Same Love that Made Me Laugh",
This album was driven to a lofty #18 with Adult Contemporary airplay on "Gettin' Ready for Love" (#8) and "You Got It" at #9. It rare that Adult Contemporary airplay alone can bring an album a platinum certification. But with 2 solid A/C Top 10 singles and one Top 15 song hitting the newly developed Dance Chart, "You're Love is Good for Me" and its adjacent promotional only extended release, that would see a release finally in the millennium years.......it was a triumph.
With a beautiful tip to The Supremes with "All Night Lover", Diana first foray away from the Motown machine as she kicks off a years long relationship with Richard Perry.
A wonderful collection of love songs were assembled as Perry employed the best Los Angeles session players to compliment Diana's magical vocals.
