Recorded in 1976 live at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles.

It was in the second half of the Seventies that Dianna Ross' career took off with a vengeance after her time with The Supremes. Although she hardly shone out of her acting talents in her second movie Mahogany, in which Motown boss Gordy assumed the director's chair himself, she landed at the top of the charts with the theme song. Fired with enthusiasm after the success of her excellent solo album Diana Ross from 1976, it was followed up in the same year with the Broadway show An Evening With Diana Ross, which was taken on tour. The live recording with the same name is impressive for two reasons. In addition to the lively interaction between the singer, big band and the audience, the album documents the all-around talent of the great lady of soul, who shines out in all facets of show business. Evergreens such as "Stormy Weather" and "The Lady Is A Tramp" are sung with a new gleam, former top numbers ("I Hear A Symphony") or the ballad "Do You Know Where You're Going To," which portrays Ross herself in the movie, are brought back to our memories, and even the disco hit "Love Hangover" is not missing on this evening.

This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head, and was pressed with virgin vinyl at Pallas. More information under
