Diana Ross: Royal Albert Hall, London
Michael Watts, Melody Maker, 29 September 1973
DIANA ROSS may be a real superstar, as critics like Derek Jewell assert, but there's altogether too much of the "sooper" in her act for my liking. That sort of showbiz sugariness of emotion that brings a lump to the throats of some while making the rest of us grimace politely, as if saccharine has been dolloped in our cups unbeknownst.
