Diana Ross – Lady Sings The Blues OMPS

I remember in the 80s and 90s when we used to make mixed tapes and we’d figured out how to add in dialogue from movies before or after songs, and thought we were the greatest engineers. This album takes me back to those days, as it’s snippets of dialogue from the film interspersed with her great renditions of the songs. Anybody ever hear the Tune In Tomorrow soundtrack? Same idea here.

So, while it’s a bit like listening to the movie, at times, the music itself is brilliantly done. Ross really and truly did nail it. Billie Holiday was inimitable, and her legacy we all know well, and this turn is as close as anybody could get to paying tribute.
