10. Touch Me In The Morning (1973)

“TOUCH ME IN THE MORNING was nominated for a Grammy and tracks ALL OF MY LIFE, WE NEED YOU and LEAVE A LITTLE ROOM all have that special Diana touch and are intimate, emotional songs. It is interesting to hear the alternate versions on many of the tracks especially two more of TOUCH ME IN THE MORNING. They are all so different and show how important decisions are in making an album.”

9. Take Me Higher (1995)

“Listening to the variety and high level of quality throughout it is shocking that this one was overlooked by both radio and the sadly commercial conscious only “Grammy Award” foundation…this tremendous musical treat should have been a huge success so don’t miss out while this Import Edition is available if you love a great singer in peak form and the musicians are great and sound really inspired and these soulful performances will make anyone who has enjoyed Diana in the past fall in love all over again.”

8. Surrender (1971)

“The brilliant light that shines through Diana Ross’s silken voice is smooth and brushed over like a fine fragile vase filled with flourishing fresh flowers taken out to set the table for todays welcomed guests. This CD is like a priceless heirloom bringing back beautiful memories to all her devoted delighted hand clapping fans. Her voice approaches you like Diana herself at her live performances. My lover Dean and I have seen her at several venues and we’ve actually seen her walking in Manhattan where she waved back and flashed that lightening bright smile we’ve all come to love.”

7. Swept Away (1984)

“The album opens with the tender Marvin Gaye tribute “Missing You” which is very befitting song for one-time labelmate and also shows off Richie’s songwriting skill. Next is the lovely “Touch by Touch” which is a highly enjoyable dance number. Track three is a cover of an old 1960s R&B song “Rescue Me” which Ms. Ross breathes new life in by turning it into a R&B-infused rock song. Track five “Swept Away” was which co-written by Mr. Hall and Sara Allen finds once again going into rock mode with a highly infectious pop-rock number that will make you dance and sing along with it”

6. Diana Ross (1976) (1976)

“This ‘Diana Ross 1976’ release, and all of the releases, are the most thorough and beautiful tributes to the incomparable skill of Diana Ross as a recording artist that could be asked for. “Someday”- everyone will get it. The Hip-O releases are so intricate in the way her talent as a world class recording artist is presented, people may ‘get it’ sooner than later. Andrew and Harry and Hip-O definitely DO give her the due credit and provide a beautiful listening experience for her fans, uncover lost treasures, and make it all gorgeous to look at. Can’t wait for whatever comes next- maybe ‘Baby It’s Me’ and ‘Ross’ together and charge whatever they want for it!”

5. The Boss (1979)

“Diana Ross has been a superstar forever it seems and her catalog (including her work with the Supremes) is one of the finest in the history of recorded pop music, iconic song after iconic song. Given that, this album still remains, in my opinion, her finest to date. It came out at the tail end of the Disco era in America, but still managed to produced a number one dance hit in “The Boss” (covered among others by Kristine W) and a string of other uptempo numbers like “No One Gets The Prize” and “I Ain’t Been Licked.” There are gorgeous ballads, as well, like “Sparkle.” None of the songs are throwaway generic pap.”

4. Baby It’s Me (1977)

“First heard this album when I was 17 and I still listen to it today it’s just special a Richard Perry produced album it has become a favorite all 10 tracks are good and Diana Ross sounds so soulful. Released just as Disco was happening so it contains a couple of dance tracks but mostly it’s a soul/RnB masterpiece.”

3. Red Hot Rhythm And Blues (1987)

“Summertime is one of Diana’s finest ballads she’s ever done in my opinion. Tell Me Again, Selfish One & It’s Hard For Me To Say are also great plus Dirty Looks is the first single from the album and the extended version is fantastic – even the instrumental version is included.”

2. Diana Ross (1970)

“Diana Ross’ first solo record, released in 1970, features sophisticated tunes backed by the Funk Brothers at the very top of their game. This, along with Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” is one of the most influential recordings for me as a bass player.”

1. Diana (1980)

“The song titles sounded light and refreshing and easy though none of them sounded like I thought they would upon reading the titles of the songs. I thought surely “I’m Coming Out” was going to be more lyrically political, but, alas, it was more existential and ethereal. When it was finally decided that “Upside Down” would be the first single, it shot into the Top 10 in 4 weeks and spent 4 weeks at the top of the singles chart. My favorite part of that song had to be the extended instrumental break. That was different for a Diana Ross record. It takes a real secure singer to allow instrumental passages to near rival the vocal riffs. But she did it and it worked in her favor.”
