Diana Ross, originally issued in 1976, was Diana Ross's first full-length solo studio album in more than two years.
It arrived on the heels of Mahogany, Diana's record-breaking second feature film that included her No. 1 hit, "Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)," and surprised audiences around the world with a whole new Diana Ross. The album included familiar sounds, from "Theme From Mahogany" to the ballad "I Thought It Took A Little Time (But Today I Fell In Love)," but took an unexpected twist with Diana's first-ever disco song, "Love Hangover," which became another No. 1 smash, and Diana's most-sampled song.
Diana Ross: Expanded Edition is a 2-CD set that features the newly re-mastered original album, single-only mixes, non-LP singles, the super-rare promotional single "Coming Home," and new alternate mixes of nearly the entire album. There's even more: three never-before-heard performances from the sessions - "Harmony," a cover of the Elton John classic; and "Go Where Your Mind Is" and "Le Lo Li," produced by Jeffrey Bowen with help Sly Stone. Rounding out the collection is an excerpt from a Diana Ross interview that hasn't been heard in 36 years.
The gorgeous package - a digi-pak like previous Diana Ross Expanded Editions - contains a deluxe 24 page booklet with detailed song annotations and the story of the album by compilation producers Andrew Skurow and George Solomon, and features spectacular photos from the renowned cover photo shoot.
