Overview

Her biggest album as a solo act, Diana Ross forever ended any association with the Supremes after this film. She not only got an Oscar nomination and more roles, she really did capture the spirit and flavor, if not the sound and timbre, of Billie Holiday's music; her performance was the film's only saving grace.

This is one of the best movie sound tracks ever. Diana Ross's singing performance may not sound exactly like Billie Holiday but her rendition in near perfect in her own style.This CD is great after over 40 years.Her voice is at peak performance, so much more than ever when she performed with the Supremes. Berry Gordy nailed it by wanting make her a Star.
