Diana Ross - Diana Ross

After her separation from The Supremes, Diana Ross presented herself in a remarkably casual manner on the cover of her first solo album. Many had feared that she would only now appear in ritzy clubs, dressed up to the nines, and singing the childish little love songs of her early years, which had brought her the unflattering nickname "Princess of plastic pop."

But no. The ego trip on record took her swiftly towards a punchy, broad-band sound which gave soul music of the '70s a new impetus. Despite this, the present album isn't just filled with racy numbers; there are a number of ballads with top-notch arrangements such as "Reach Out And Touch" and "Now That There's You," both of which stand out for their silky strings, meticulously dosed background singing and powerful chords on the piano. And the album also includes a brand new arrangement of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," which had been previously released to whet the appetite, and was voted among the 10 best single releases ever produced by the magazine Rolling Stone. The superlative could well be applied to this debut solo album as it must surely be one of Diana Ross' best performances of her entire career.
