A Lifetime of Milestones

In the annals of popular music, Diana Ross is without rival in history-making feats.

As lead singer of the Pop group the Supremes, and as a solo artist, Diana Ross achieved the unprecedented feat of singing 18 number one hit records, second only to the Beatles at 20.

Starting a solo career in the '70s that has spanned over two decades, she ... Read more in Amazon's Diana Ross Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Spanning 30 years and encompassing 38 tracks, including some rescued from the vaults, this anthology of Miss Ross's solo output is essential for any diva wannabe. The hits alone will keep a fan satisfied. And what hits: "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "Reach out and Touch," "Theme from Mahogany," the still sublime "Love Hangover," the endlessly sampled and still funky "Upside Down," and "Good Morning Heartache" from Lady Sings the Blues, are just a few of the jewels in Ross's musical crown. Among the rarities that help make this collection a treat is a previously unreleased cover of Laura Nyro's wise and soulful "Time and Love," which back in 1970 was slated to be Ross's debut solo single. Sounding girlish and joyful, the cut, like the rest of this collection, reminds you why Diana Ross remains a touchstone for female pop and R&B. --Amy Linden

3.0 out of 5 stars What Kind of Fool Am I? April 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
When will Motown quit re-releasing the same "greatest hits" compilations? When we quit buying them! Am I guilty - yes I am!
Being that I had given all of my previous (disappointing) Diana Ross greatest hits/ultimate collection/boxed sets away and resisting the latest wave of reissues, I hesitated to purchase the Motown Anthology as well. But my curiosity of the "unreleased, alternate versions and hard-to-find material" won over my common sense. Motown marketing wins again!
Here are the reasons I am glad I purchased this set: The unedited version of "LAST TIME I SAW HIM." I've always liked this song very much. It's not only a different version here, there are additional lyrics. The original version of "LIVING, LOVING, GIVING" (I actually bought the soundtrack to 'Thank God It's Friday' to get this original version of the song only to find that they replaced it with the new re-edited/mix. Again -what kind of fool am I?). "OLD FUNKY ROLLS" I have been waiting since the 45 for this song to reappear. Miss Ross evidently has a lot of fun on this silly song. The arrangement of the extended version of "NO ONE GETS THE PRIZE" is a big improvement over the album version. It's fun to hear "DOOB'NDOOBE DOOBE..." after not hearing it for so long (The vinyl album wore out years ago). The studio version of "HOME" from 'The Wiz' is very nice. The radio edits of songs are a nice change from the album versions, especially "WORKIN' OVERTIME" and "ONE LOVE IN MY LIFETIME.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Diana June 10, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"The Motown Anthology" is not a compilation. It's a showcase. I'm not really much of a Diana Ross fan (a friend introduced me to "Take Me Higher," "I Will Survive," and "Until We Meet Again" while we were clubbing), but I bought it to humor him and was suprisingly impressed. From the first note of the 'previously unreleased' "Time And Love" to the fierce climax of her dance hit "Until We Meet Again," this collection takes listeners on that rare musical journey through three decades of both pop cornerstones and artistic standouts. Considering most diva "Greatest Hits" albums out today are nothing but hastily-tossed single salads with "new tracks" useless for a full album (i.e. Celine, Mariah, Whitney, you get the picture), it is a real treasure to have a career retrospective with such style and dignity. From the massive track listing (38 total) to the selection of material to the excellent booklet, which includes both history, stats, and even reflections on Ross' impact on contemporary artists), "The Motown Anthology" is nothing short of a treat. Remember back in the day when buying a record was exciting? Well, if you need help jogging your memory, Diana Ross' Anthology will be a great reminder. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Supreme March 27, 2001
By Marc200
Format:Audio CD
Just what the doctor ordered -- a brand new anthology bringing together all of Ross' big hits "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "Reach Out And Touch", "Upside Down", "The Boss" "Remember Me" and "Endless Love" along with some of her better, not-so-big hits "Surrender", "One Love In My Lifetime" and "Gettin' Ready For Love".
No one does melancholy like Ross, DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR'E GOING TO and TOUCH ME IN THE MORNING can still make you cry. NO ONE GETS THE PRIZE features one of her most searing vocals, and the very hard-to-find extended version is included here. I THOUGHT IT TOOK A LITTLE TIME is the No.1 hit that never was, starts off slow and sugary before building to its exuberant climax. This collection shows how much Ross' voice matured over the years -- from the chirpy thrush (I'M STILL WAITING) to cooing vixen (LOVE HANGOVER) to its current, voluptuous beauty, best demonstrated by THE BEST YEARS OF MY LIFE, one of her finest latter-day ballads.
There are even a few surprises for the diehard Ross fan -- Ross' version of Laura Nyro's TIME AND LOVE which was slated to be her first solo single and a previously unreleased (slicker, more glossy) version of HOME from The Wiz. Also included are previously unreleased alternate versions of LOVIN', LIVIN', AND GIVIN' and MY MISTAKE(WAS TO LOVE YOU). The tracks have been digitally remastered, a first for many of these songs, and the sound quality is excellent for the majority of the tracks -- apparently all the digital remastering in the world cannot remove the vague hissing sound from SURRENDER and REMEMBER ME.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ESSENTIAL DIANA ROSS May 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Motown Anthology (2001) represents the cream of the soul diva's

work. During her solo reign at Motown between 1970 - 1981, she pumped

out an endless river of classics, ranging from adventurous disco to

romantic ballads and to urban soul/r&b. These recordings define why

she is still the leading female singer of our era and easily the most

successful. Her career spans over 4 decades and in that time she has

clocked up over an incredible 70 hit singles, plus scores and scores

of studio albums, which many from the Motown era have been

unjustifiably deleted.

For a start, perharps being something of an over-eager Diana Ross

fan, I still wanted more than these two discs, with perharps a whole

box set dedicated to her time with The Supremes, her lengthy Motown

run from 70 - 81, to her erratic stint at RCA, through to the latter-

day Ross tunes that are lesser known than many of the tracks featured

on here. Many motown album recordings i'd love to have seen included

on here are: You're All I Need To Get By, Keep An Eye, Somethings On

My Mind (all from her solo debut set - Diana Ross 1970), My Place,

Ain't No Sad Song and her enduringly soulful version of The Beatles,

Come Together (all featured on Everything Is Everything 1970), And If

You See Him, A Simple Thing Like Cry, All The Befores (all from

Surrender 1971), All Of My Life, Medley (a) Brown Baby (b) Save The

Children (all from Touch Me In The Morning 1973), You Are Everything,

Don't Knock My Love, Stop! Look!
