The UK and US album selections are different - The US version contains the Brenda Russell ballad "Let Somebody Know", whereas the UK version contains the funky little ditty, "Swing It". I'd recommend that US buyers buy the UK version on import - I'll explain why later on!
The album kicks off with the percussive, high N-R-G title track, "Take Me Higher", which is a brilliant. Listen out for Patti Austin's awesome backing vocals. "If You're Not Going To Love Me Right" is a laid back R&B groove.
It's the ballads that stand out on this album and the first is the gorgeous "I Never Loved a Man Before". It has a beautiful Spanish feel to it that provided the perfect backdrop for Diana's delicate, soothing vocals.
Then we come to the UK only track, "Swing It" which has to be one of the funkiest tracks that Diana's recorded. Why wasn't it released as a single? I played this in my car and a friend was shocked to discover it was Ms Ross!
"Keep It Right Here" is the outstanding R&B track. It's sultry, laid back and easy, as is "Don't Stop". They're the kind of tracks that you listen to in the summer while driving along with the top of your car down (for those convertible owners out there!).Read more ›
