  • Could've been the next Diana Ross

    In dire need of a touch of inspiration for a Shindig! side bar I need to get done whilst a million other occurrences explode around me.
    We're running a big piece of Mary Love and want to feature a few other female artists of the era who 'could have been the next Diana Ross'.
    Tammi Terrell springs to mind at once.
    Any others?

    What about Linda Jones? If she hadn't died so young she may have gone on to greater things.

        any of James Brown's ladies?

        Yvonne Fair
        Marva Whitney
        Lyn Collins

        assume that the Mary Love thing will make mention of this... one day it shall be mine...

          Bettye Swann? &, yes, Rita Wright / Syreeta.



          pre-disco, 'Sunflower' era Thelma Houston, maybe?

              A wonderful track, but still nowhere near this Everest of sheer delight.

                        You probably had to shag Berry Gordy to stand a chance of being the next Diana Ross. Much as I like a lot of Supremes stuff I don't think Diana Ross' voice is a patch on most of those mentioned above.

                          Diana wasn't even the best singer in The Supremes. She had a breath control issue that meant she'd 'hiccup' between lines. They edited it out on the records but, live, it sounds very odd, especially in uptempo numbers.

                            I like her voice a lot, but "being Diana Ross" was never really about the voice anyway.
