iTunes Review

Diana Ross’ meticulously considered solo debut features the utterly human love songs of R&B songwriting powerhouses Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson. They turned out to be an ideal match; Ross brings a determined yet gentle performance on ”Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” while the soft sway of “Where There Was Darkness” culminates in joy. Lush arrangements, like the swooping strings and backing vocals that circle her on “You’re All I Need to Get By,” only make Ross’ presence that much more towering.

Customer Reviews

Ain't No Mountain High Enough For this album!

Diana can sing, and her best song is Aint NO Mountain High Enough. She needs to make another album and quick!

Classic Diana!

This Is An Absolute treat, I would love to hear diana do some of the bonus tracks on this effort now! My god She Would kill "Stoney End", As well As "Where There Was Darkness"! Diana has always been criticized for not having "powerful Pipes",But let the record show that you "Do Not" need powerful pipes to take a song and make it a hit and you certainly don't need them to make a song memorable, Diana is proof of that and what's more; Diana Has that Indescribable "something" that you just can't label! This is one of my favorite diana pieces and it gets heavy rotation in my ipod touch. One or two songs will not do, you need the whole thing to get the full experience! Unforgetable!

Her Strongest

Her strongest album by far...almost every track is a winner. I listen to it over and over. Keep an Eye and Dark Side of The World are especailly surprising. Ashford & Simpson's production on this one is very lush with first rate orchestration and a Diana who never sounded better. It seems like A&S really knew how to push and augment her vocal constraints. The bonus tracks also rise above the usual filler - Love's Lines is an interesting counterpoint to the better known 5th Dimension version. If you end up digging this album see if you can get your hands on Valerie Simpson's solo work for Motown - it really informs this CLASSIC album.

As a solo artist, Diana Ross is one of the most successful female singers of the rock era. If you factor in her work as the lead singer of the Supremes in the 1960s, she may be the most successful. With her friends Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard, and Barbara Martin, Ross formed the Primettes vocal quartet in 1959. In 1960, they were signed to local Motown Records, changing their name to the Supremes in 1961. Martin then left, and the group continued as a trio. Over the next eight years, the Supremes...
