4.0 out of 5 stars Great journey through Ms Ross's career 15 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Part of the Playlist series, this compilation offers an enjoyable journey through Diana Ross's extensive career and flows together well (aside from the duet with Julio Iglesias which seems a bit out of place).

No single-disc collection is ever going to cover everything Ms Ross has released over the many decades she has been around. For the casual consumer, this CD will be perfectly sufficient. For the devoted fan, there will be issues with what has, and hasn't, been included. From that second standpoint, I would like to have seen at least one rare 12" version on here to make it a 'must have' for the fans as well. Still to be released on CD are the 12" versions of Work That Body, Muscles, Chain Reaction and Pieces of Ice, among others. The 12" of Swept Away was included on a German compilation but has still not been on a Diana Ross compilation or reissue yet. I think that adding the 12" of Muscles (which does seem like it needs to be longer when played on this disc) and/or the 12" of Chain Reaction (a massive UK smash hit, which also feels like it needs to be longer when heard on this disc) would have been the best choice(s) for lifting this release beyond good into something special. The total running time of 67 minutes 11 seconds does mean there was space for a couple of longer mixes.

However what we do get works well as a compilation, especially at this low price. Sound quality is generally very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent budget collection of full-length album versions! 20 Jun 2013
By Jeffrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD to supplement my original issue of the "All The Great Hits" CD which covers Diana's solo Motown years fairly well but unfortunately conatins the heavily edited single version of "Love Hangover" (the current import reissue has the full-length version) This collection only includes 3 duplicates from that CD, and I was very happy to see that "Love Hangover" is restored to its original 7:48 length here. All of the tracks are full-length and the remaining 11 tracks are a nice representation of her work for RCA during the 80s. Sound quality is very nice, not overly loud although there is volume compression because all of the waveforms are uniform height, obviously cut down from louder masters. For the price though, it's a great collection. The booklet includes a short essay and 3 big full color photos along with track information. Mine came housed in a proper jewel case, unlike some previous 'Playlist' titles I have where they came in ridiculous flimsy cardboard packaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Collection Means Well.... 24 Jun 2013
By James Fenos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Firstly I'd like to mention this budget cd is very well mastered and blows away the RCA collection of Diana's hits for that label, all the songs here are full-length and the songs for the RCA hits cd consist of edits and "Pieces Of Ice" was a glaring omission. My questions lie with some of the choices here. Firstly this cd is supposed to represent Diana's RCA output but leads off with the full length version of
"Love Hangover" which can be found in it's full length version on the two disc Motown Anthology released a few years back, and this collection contains two tracks from her last album with Motown "Diana" again previously available in these exact configurations on other cd's, namely those on the Universal label. "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" was Diana's RCA debut and is one of my favorite albums of hers but I question the inclusion of her solo re-reading of "Endless Love." Granted her tenure at RCA wasn't as fruitful as projected by both the label and artist I still wish this cd was a bit more RCA intensive. Diana was a club superstar and I'd love to hear and own remastered original 12" mixes of "Pieces Of Ice" and "Chain Reaction" and "Swept Away" to name a few. Maybe in the future RCA will release on a single disc the original extended mixes but for now they are languishing on a shelf just collecting dust and that's just sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never judge a book by its cover... 3 Nov 2013
By J. R. SOUTH - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What a surprise! I picked up this inexpensive Diana Ross collection at Target & bought it on a whim. It turns out it's absolutely great. Awesome selection of songs & fabulous sound mastering. Very up, "feel-good" music. If you love the one and only Miss Ross, this is a must have.
