Diana Ross Red Hot Rhythm And Blues will be a 2 CD Deluxe Edition for the First Time Ever. Includes 13 Bonus Tracks The album includes the Top 15 US R&B and UK Top 40 hit, "Dirty Looks" And the ballad "It's Hard for Me to Say", produced by Luther Vandross. The cover photography was by Herb Ritts. Includes the Un-Released Track Sweet Soul Music. Liner Notes by Alex Henderson Re-Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Sean Brennan, at Battery Studio s, New York. Red Hot Rhythm and Blues is the 1987 album by the legendary Diana Ross. The album made the charts in Germany, The Netherlands and Austria, as well as reaching the Top 20 in Sweden and Norway. The album was Ross's final album for RCA Records and included cover versions of several R&B classics, including The Bobbettes' "Mr. Lee", Jackie Ross' "Selfish One," Etta James' "Tell Mama", and The Drifters' "There Goes My Baby". Ross decided to retreat to safer territory, returning to her roots of Rhythm And Blues to mark a celebration in black music for the dynamic Red Hot Rhythm And Blues album. Listeners to this album were stunned to hear Ross' sensational, sexually-charged and charismatic performance that sound quite fitting when listening to those mildly racy lyrics. Never the less Red Hot Rhythm And Blues is ESSENTIAL to any Diana Ross fan and stands as something of an over-looked classic.
Top Customer Reviews
Despite her megastar status, Diana Ross's success with albums and singles has been quite patchy if you look at chart placements. And while Red Hot Rhythm And Blues was another slick and polished affair from Ms Ross - and a very cohesive and enjoyable set - it was clearly hampered by the choice of singles.
With its nostalgic R&B stylings dominating, there is no immediate or contemporary pop song (though Stranger in Paradise is fairly pop-oriented, and not entirely dissimilar to her earlier hits Muscles and Mirror, Mirror).
But there are some real gems on here, some of which should have been singles. One of the standouts is Shine, a funky, densely-textured dance track penned by Simply Red's Mick Hucknall. The album version did attract the attention of DJs and get some club play and it's an absolute crime that this wasn't a single with proper extended dance mixes by a hot name of the time such as Jellybean, Pettibone, etc. Other standouts are some of the ballads - in particular the brittle beauty of the jazzy, yearning Summertime, and the more standard love songs Tell Me Again (which seems to have been planned as a single in some territories at least), and Cross My Heart. The last two are similar to the ballads she later delivered on the 1991 album Force Behind the Power
As the first single, we instead got the sinuous Dirty Looks with its wriggly rhythms and crystal-clear percussion.Read more ›
The sound is great.
My only remark is that 6 CDs come in a standard case. Although there are liner notes, it would have been perfect to release these 6 CDs for RCA in a digipack with original artwork.
The term 'deluxe edition' is somewhat misleading as although I've handled these discs with 'kid-gloves' the boxes they come in are somewhat cheaper than regulation issue cd boxes.
So much so that the little lugs that hold the 'cover' in place have snapped off [while inside a steel carry-box ???] and some fell out and scored the cover of the cardboard 'digi-pack' cd that was next to it !
The front right side on some of these cheaper boxes [they feel 'different'] has disintegrated as well, I'm furious !
If you do buy any of these reissues you might wanna change the box pronto.
