Product Description

Diana Ross (Expanded Edition) by Diana Ross

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.

The only surprise in Diana Ross forging a solo career outside the Supremes is how long she waited to do it. Her 1970 debut shrewdly capitalized on her former band's spectacular string of successes at the same time that it carved out a niche for Ross as one of modern pop's most formidable divas. That not inconsiderable task of reinvention fell to the songwriting/production team of Ashford & Simpson, who constructed a musical framework that traded freely on the sheer dynamics and dramatic potential of Ross's voice on tracks like "Reach Out and Touch Somebody's Hand" and the massive No. 1 hit "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." Loose, light, and occasionally neo-spiritual, it's an album that's almost daringly free of Motown history and clichés, right down to its cover imagery. This digitally remastered edition features a wealth of bonus tracks that include four from the album's first (aborted) sessions with producer Bones Howe--including Laura Nyro's "Stoney End," a hit for Streisand shortly thereafter--that give an intriguing glimpse of the somewhat jazzier and even more pop-oriented album that might have been. Also included are alternate mixes of "Ain't No Mountain" and "These Things Will Keep Me Loving You," an alternate vocal take of "Now There's You" that underscores the subtleties of Ross's technique, and a showy, unreleased live version of the album's "Something on My Mind" from one of the diva's first 1970 solo performances. --Jerry McCulley

Judging by the general lack of availability and Motown's reluctance to reissue the vast majority of Diana Ross' original albums on CD, anyone could be easily forgiven for thinking of her as a singles artiste. How many soul divas of comparable stature do you know whose product has been given such short shrift ? All of Aretha's Atlantic albums (except for the last few that were [bad]) has been reissued by Rhino. But to be honest, Diana didn't make THAT many albums that were classics or stood the test of time. One of the few exceptions was her debut album, which today sounds astoundingly like a landmark album. It isn't revisionist romanticism that has altered these perceptions over the years but simply the realisation that given sympathetic material and the right production values, Diana was untouchable, sublime. Ashford and Simpson were a dream team for her.
"Reach Out And Touch Somebody's Hand" didn't quite catch fire when it first launched her solo career in 1970 but like good wine, it has aged really well and become her concert anthem. Her remodelled "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" was a scorcher and gave her an instant #1 smash, though not without the benefit of some nifty studio editing which transformed the rather loose and sprawling six-minute version heard here on the album into a tight three minute masterpiece. They were right to drop the spoken second verse.

On the 15 January, 1970 at the prestigous Las Vegas Frontier Hotel, Diana Ross played her final concert with The Supremes - who remain the worlds biggest female vocal group of all time. At Ross' fawell concert she introduced her replacement Jean Terrell up on stage. The media then inevitably hyped up supposed competition between Diana Ross the solo star and The "New" Supremes. Indeed Ross opened up her first solo engagement with the words "Good evening ladies and gentleman and welcome to the lets see if Diana Ross can make it on her own show". She need not have worried!

Diana Ross' solo career had been initially planned as far back as 1966 and rumours had been circulating in the media for quite some time about her imminent departure from the group.

In 1969, when still offically a supreme, Ross recorded four tracks with Bonie Howes - Time And Love (originally intended as Ross' debut and later re-recorded by the "new" Supremes and then by the legendary Barbara Streisand), Stoney End, The Interim and Love, Lines, Angles And Rhymes. These four startling tracks steered Ross far away from her style and sound with The Supremes - too far as Motown boss Berry Gordy was concerned!

Deciding to play it safe as to not totally alienate Ross' mainstream buying public. Berry Gordy appointed the hot, genius duo Ashford and Simpson to be at the creative helm of Ross' debut solo album.

Simply titled Diana Ross (1970), the first single to be released would be the sappy Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand). The lyrics vastly alternated between social awareness and pure schmaltz though indeed boasted anthemic qualities. It also encapsulated an uncatchy, waltz-like rhythm that completely defected from the swinging Motown sound.

Diana Ross' first solo attempt in 1970 "Diana Ross" (later re-released as "Ain't No Mountain High Enough") was, and is still today a success. In my opinion, it is one of her greater albums. Besides her two greatest hits "Reach Out & Touch Somebody's Hand" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", there are a great many engaging and loveable tracks. My personal favorite is her rendition of The Velvelettes' 1965 minor hit "These Things Will Keep Me Loving You". She also re-recorded a track that she had done on the "Love Child" album in 1968, entitled "Keep An Eye". Interestingly enough, both versions were recorded by Diana Ross & The Andantes. But either way, it is still a great song. Another one of my favorites from this album is "Now That There's You". Here she pulls out all the stops and shouts her testification to her man. My final favorite is "Time & Love" which interestingly enough was recorded by the "New Supremes" in 1971 for their album "Touch". Even more interestingly, they both used the exact same pre-recorded music track. The only difference is, Jean sang lead on the Supremes' version which was released, and Diana Ross sang the lead on her version which was not released until now. Either way, this is definitely a personal best for Miss Ross, and I urge you to buy it. After all, with the way merchandise goes, it might not be here the next time you decide to give it a try.

Diana Ross' early solo albums were really something. Delving into her back catalogue is fun as it's so vast!

This calibre of this album is very high indeed. It's an eclectic blend of warm soul and bluesy gospel tinged numbers. Ashford & Simpson were the prefect production team for Diana, as they quickly capitalized on her dramatic vocal capabilities. They also stretched her out of the middle range that was synonymous with her work with the Supremes. The results were outstanding, as Diana's was voice sounds amazing here.

The album opens with Diana's very first solo single and her heartfelt anthem, "Reach Out And Touch" which is, of course, an evergreen classic. Ashford & Simpson didn't want this released as the first single; instead, they wanted the fabulous, spine tingling "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" to be the first single, but Berry Gordy wasn't convinced. As we all know, this was her first US Billboard pop chart #1 hit (#6 on the UK pop charts) and it's here in all its glory. You can tell that Diana had the potential to become a fine actress - just listen to the drama and tension in her voice as the song builds up into the dazzling crescendo.

Other highlights include the lovely ballads "Now That There's You" and "You're All I Need To Get By" plus the gusty performance of "I Wouldn't Change The Man He Is". The soulful groove of "Something On My Mind" was an instant favourite. This re-mastered album with bonus tracks features a superb live version of this song. Perceiving that the world had its eyes on her solo debut, Diana declared in that soft and rather charming American drawl:

"Good evening everybody, and welcome to the 'let's see if Diana Ross can do it by herself show!'"

The diva pulled it off in spectacular style.
