*Fans are raving about it! Just when you thought you knew everything about Motown star Diana Ross, out comes a new book, “Diana Ross Reflections” (210 pages; New Haven Publishing Ltd) with new details and rare photos of the music legend.
Author Ian Phillips examines all of Ms. Ross’ recording work from The Primettes (before the name change to The Supremes) up through to the present day, as well as highlighting her many career highlights and accomplishments, including her work in film, television and on stage. To set the tone Phillips – a long-time Diana Ross fan – called upon Al Abrams (former Motown promotion director) and Janie Bradford (former Motown songwriter) who both worked closely with Ross to write the foreword.
With a career now spanning over five decades, Diana Ross remains one of the most successful recording and performing artists of all time. It’s hard to imagine that her group was referred to as the “no-hit-Supremes” during the early Motown days before their breakout hit “Where Did Our Love Go.” As lead singer of The Supremes, the group amassed a total of twelve number one hit singles between 1964 and 1969. Ross’ career continued to flourish after going solo with such hits as “Touch Me In The Morning,” “Love Hangover,” “Upside Down,” “I’m Coming Out” and so many, many more.
This is an essential read for all Diana Ross fans. The book spotlights not only her ground-breaking artistic success but also her revolutionary cultural impact – overcoming so many obstacles as a black woman and breaking down so many racial barriers.
A fan Lou Rattacasa writes, “The author’s insights into her career are interesting food for thought and quite astute. He examines each album through every phase of her career from the earliest days with the Supremes through her last album of new material, I Love You. And the pictures! Most of them I have never seen before. That is very exciting for me.”
