Diana Ross - Diana Ross (1976) - €10,00

Diana Ross is the seventh studio album by American singer Diana Ross, released on February 10, 1976 by Motown Records. It is her second self-titled record after Diana Ross (1970). It reached #5 in the USA (4 R&B).
The album was Ross' biggest-selling album since 1973's Touch Me in the Morning, reaching #5 on the US Billboard 200 album chart, #4 on the US Billboard R&B Album Chart.
Two of the tracks included on Diana Ross were #1 hits: "Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)" (released as a single in 1975 from the Mahogany soundtrack), and the disco anthem, "Love Hangover".
The album's official lead single "I Thought It Took A Little Time" was on its way to becoming a hit when its chart life was circumvented by "Love Hangover", which was rushed to release alongside a competing version by The 5th Dimension. "I Thought It Took A Little Time" became a Top 5 Adult Contemporary single despite its shortened run on the Billboard Hot 100. It remains a fan favorite and was also remixed for the clubs on the Almighty Records dance compilation, We Love Diana Ross. A final single, the disco-flavoured "One Love In My Lifetime" become a Top 10 US R&B hit.

The album also included cover versions of the Charlie Chaplin standard "Smile" and "Ain't Nothin' But A Maybe" that had previously been recorded by its writers Ashford & Simpson and Rufus & Chaka Khan. "After You' was subsequently recorded by Roberta Flack on her classic 1977 album Blue Lights In The Basement while R&B starlet Stacy Lattisaw covered 'I Thought It Took A Little Time" on her 1985 album I'm Not The Same Girl. British soul singer Joss Stone covered "One Love In My Lifetime" for her 2012 album The Soul Sessions Vol. 2.

Ross was also nominated for a Grammy for "Love Hangover" (Best R&B Performance, Female Artist). Victor Skrebneski photographed Diana's iconic album art. It was chosen by the Italian Fan Club association as 'The Most Beautiful Album Art'. She performed many of the tracks from the album on her award-winning, An Evening with Diana Ross Broadway show, tour, television special and album.
