Prepare for a musical chain reaction with an hour lit up by one shining moment after another in this celebration of the best BBC performances from soul legend Diana Ross.

From The Supremes to some of her most supreme solo hits, this collection from the archives underlines exactly why Ms Ross has been one of the biggest and most enduring names in music. With songs like Baby Love, I’m Still Waiting and Why Do Fools Fall in Love? from Diana’s visits to the BBC on programmes like Top of the Pops, Wogan and the National Lottery show, this is a must for all fans that promises to leave them Upside Down and enjoying a massive Love Hangover.

This is followed by Diana at the Royal Albert Hall in 1973:

I found a cassette of Diana Ross and the Supremes and the Temptations TCB their television special soundtrack. What a great album. Some great singing by both groups. Very touching performance by Diana of Somewhere where mid-song she quotes Martin Luther King Jr.

Still hoping for deluxe reissues of The Boss (Hip-O-Select never got to this one - they were almost there) and Take Me Higher and Every Day is a New Day.
 
We have hit 1986 on the Retrochart and I have reminded myself of what there is to look forward too and can’t stop bopping to this:



I still smile when I think of 7 year old me not realising that the black and white scenes were NOT original 60s footage of her. Ageless queen.
 
OMG! Looking forward to the first two programs, I have never seen Royal Albert Hall in decent quality! I better be able to find these after the broadcast (I´m not in the UK).

I just happened to be playing the Every Day Is A New Day album when I checked in here. Really wish that album, along with Take Me Higher would receive vinyl and deluxe releases.
