I We Can Do Anything - Mikkel Solnado - Its Only Love Give It Away Barry Gibb produced an album for Diana Ross in early To me the result is a fiasco and i fear Diana Ross is responsable for that. What have they done to her voice? I absolutly adore the Bee Geesno problem with them. When they produceBarbra or Oliviathey bring something new.
They bring pop romantism to the broadway diva or a feminine Bee gees with Olivia. With Kenny Rogers it was no convincingand with Dionne is was close to disaster! I think their inspiration was gonethe songs are not bad but not great anyway.
I have a 85 concert in Netherland and she is doing well with the song. Once again, what was she doing in those days? Everyone hating on the title track!
I love it so much but I have a big place in my heart for Diana-goes-camp songs! The album overall is a bore. And the cover! I love it! I wonder if the track selection was different??? I think Diana shines Diana Ross - Eaten Alive this album. I also just read that this album sold only Diana Ross - Eaten Alive copies in the US but over 3 million copies thru out UK. I also agree with you on the best cuts. The album sold 3 million worldwide. Not just in the U. Markets from Germany to Brazil were once very potent before the era of downloads.
It is on a Sydney Gay Pride double cd compilation. This album came out the year I was born! The title track is beyond catchy. Me loves! I was young when this came out, too — only about six — but I vividly remember it. My parents bought me the cassette, and for a long time I had a giant promotional poster of Diana Ross - Eaten Alive album cover on my wall.
I was 18 years old, a young German boy and a huge Diana Ross-fan. Naturally, English is not my mother-tongue but I speak and understand it quite well. Miss Ross — to my High School Confidential - Jerry Lee Lewis - The Best Of Jerry Lee Lewis was always a singer that I could listen to AND understand what Diana Ross - Eaten Alive singing about because her pronounciation was and is very clear.
I did not understand a word. Way back in there was no internet where you could look up the words immediately. So listening to that song I imagined what she might be singing.
So here is my interpretation of her words that I still remember:. Oliver — this is so great! A huge Diana fan I was waiting for this album with great expectations.
This belated pairing with the Gibbs sees her handling some poor fare- Streisand and Dionne had gotten all the Diana Ross - Eaten Alive tracks! Chain Reaction was a camp motown pastiche that became one of her biggest UK hits thanks in part to a retro style video that paid homage to the 60s. Filled with poor songs and poor vocals too it was a major disappointment and another missed opportunity.
I remember reading somewhere that Barry Gibb did not enjoy the experience and found Diana difficult to deal with as Diana Ross - Eaten Alive resisted any kind of direction from the Gibbs- sound familiar? Nile Rogers said the same. She made a lot of bad career moves and lost her crown. That might have seen her career as an actress explode into mega stardom saving her from near oblivion in the US.
The only one I think was Diana Ross - Eaten Alive is Ross and it failed. Her controversial RCA years were infinitely copied, consciously or unconsciously, by the next generation of female pop stars. Totally agree that Diana is much more of a trailblazer than people even realize, or care to admit. Could explain why no demo…. Wow, lots of great comments and insights here. Diana Ross - Eaten Alive like the title cut as a sort of a guilty pleasure.
Even down to the silly fake tiger Diana poses with on the cover. So all of a sudden here she is vamping it up with fake tigers, crazy hair and almost as much eye makeup as Tammy Faye so it just rang false?
Here, not really at all. With a little more judiciousness in overall presentation, this could have had a much different reception. To really work fully, an album has to jell — great songs and conceptually presented in an honest, believable way.
Thanks for writing down your thoughts here — really like hearing what you have to say, Joey! Had these songs been given different mixes, I think this could have been one of her strongest albums from start to finish. The expanded post is very interesting. It also makes me think back to being a kid and playing this album a lot. But today, I was reflecting on this period in her career.
I think she should have gone with Islands In The Stream. Diana was keen on the project at first ,mostly because of Diana Ross - Eaten Alive BS project. Maurice felt he wanted her to do her own thing with the songs rather than copy Barrys vocal demos. Chain Rection was the last song recorded for the lp according to the Bee Gees.
Time to add a bit more! It has charted twice- Reaching No1 and then reentering the top 20 when rereleased a few years later. The Eaten Alive album really is a dud.
There was now a new younger and very photogenic African American Diva and she was sweeping everyone else off the stage. Her career never recovered. She still managed to have chart success in the 90s with much better material suited to her voice and image- she returned to what she Meeting A Swindler - Peer Raben - Tricheurs good at! We got to see her more on UK TV where she was missing in action during the Darling Days - Jeannie C.
