Diana album for sale Product Description



All tracks have been digitally remastered using 24-bit technology. Diana Ross would probably be offended by anyone who called her 1980 smash Diana a comeback, but let's face it -- after the flop of The Wiz, and the way that the disco revolution steamrollered so many of her Motown compatriots' careers, that's exactly what it was. Wisely hooking up with Chic's Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards (both the most traditionally rooted and most fearless of the major disco-era producers), Ross sounds more forceful than she had in years.   ...See Full Description

A World of Difference!
I bought this CD not so much because I'm a Diana Ross fan, but more because I'm a Chic fanatic. I have every album they recorded, with the exception of Les Plus Grand Sucess.... I look forward to completing collection of their works on cd. I bought diana when it first came out on vinyl. Chic productions have always been lush with lots of strings and horns and keyboards. These are undergirded by bouncy, burbling bass line and a rippling guitar always prominent. I was a bit shocked when the album originally came out in 1980. It was rather stark and mechanical sounding; all the instruments and backup vocals sounded like they were recorded in the hallway outside the studio while Diana's voice was way out in front. It sort of makes me think of La Ross performing with the Supremes (or anybody else for that matter) and pushing them out of the way so that she can take center stage. :)) The vocals on the original seem a bit robotic and uninspired. That said, the original Chic version is what I would have liked to hear. The instrumental portions of some of these songs are sheer magic, but since the album was all about Diana, much of that got cut out. More important is the fact that Diana's grittier vocals got cut out. Listening to the Chic version, the diva has more emotion in her voice and the songs are more interesting. And rather than the instrumentals covering her up, they add polish and class. Remember Diana: a real diva would never sacrifice who she is to chase a trend! Oddly enough, the songs that were the major hits (Upside Down and I'm Coming Out) were NOT anywhere near being MY favorites. My favorite was Have Fun (Again). It had a new-wave flavor back then and was the most robotic of all the songs. The Chic version sounds much the same but her vocals open the song up and give it some flava'. Listen to Tenderness and Give Up, they have a slightly heavier funkier sound than the original and the backup vocals seem more prominent. Diana adlibs her way through the latter portions rather soulfully. I simply adore the way Tenderness ends: Come on love meeeeee.... Friend-To-Friend is much better to listen to with the keys tinkling lightly in the background and the guitar wafting in and out. Even the subtle differences between the Terrana and Chic versions of Upside Down make the song more appealing. Being that I'm a Chic aficianado, I'm more inclined to choose those mixes over what was put on the market. I thank GOD for putting it on someone's mind to put this cd out as I always wanted to know what it would sound like. Given what happened to Chic after Good Times and Risque, they should have kept these songs for the group. I think it would've been a hit for them just like it was for Diana. Haven't yet listened to the other cd in the set with the pre-Chic cuts .... Love Hangover, The Boss, etc. Great work here!

The Chic Mystique
Chic (founded & produced by Nile Rogers-guitar and, the late, Bernard Edwards-bass) was, probably the most successful of all disco acts ('Le Freak' is the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic Records). 'Diana' is, without a doubt Ms. Ross' best album. 'Im Coming Out' is an anthem, still. 'Have Fun Again', and 'My Old Piano' are among my favorites of all time, period! Though Ms. Ross was renowned for her clarity and finesse, Chic brought out her power. 'Im Coming Out' and 'Upside Down' rocked the charts and they sound just as good today. 'The Chic Mystique' was how they could make any singer sound great, and the great sound exceptionally so.

Well worth the money!
I love this series of CDs that Motown has released (these Deluxe Editions). They give you an idea of how your favorite classic albums would sound if the alternate mixes were released instead. It's a chance to hear your favorite tunes with a different twist. This Diana Ross album has the entire Rodgers/Edwards version of the album. The mixes have different levels for the instruments and in the case of "I'm Coming Out" and entirely differnt vocal take (more aggressive). The arrangements of the songs in some cases are different - Different breakdowns and in the case of "Friend to Friend", different instruments. The second CD has many of her dance classics, but the alternate "Diana" is enough for me. By the way, get the deluxe version of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On". Again, an entirely diffent mix of the album is included as well as a live version.

She always finds her way
The other reviewers got it right. This is a work of art. Spare, modern, shifting rhythms and teasing chants. Producer and artist are seamless (despite the studio tempest).
