Diana Ross
Touch Me In The Morning: Expanded Edition

[Hip-O Select; March 1]

The latest in an ongoing series of Diana Ross reissues, this expanded edition of Touch Me In The Morning includes the entirety of Ross’s never-released album To The Baby, a collection of songs she recorded around the same time in celebration of her newborn daughter Rhonda. Some of those songs were reworked and wound up on Touch Me In The Morning; others, like her covers of Michael Jackson’s ‘Got To Be There’ and Roberta Flack’s ‘First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ were never released, until now. Aside from offering plenty in the way of exclusives and alternative mixes, this reissue is made extra desirable for the booklet which includes the story behind both albums, with quotes from Ross, her manager Shelly Berger and producer Deke Richards, rare photos and memorabilia.
