REMASTERED & EXPANDED: ‘THE LAST TIME I SAW HIM’ FROM DIANA ROSS
BET Lifetime Recipient Award winner Diana Ross has another vaulted album being prepared for release as an expanded edition. Originally released in 1973, Last Time I Saw Him from Diana Ross is being expanded to include a whole of treasures, remastered and including an extra special bonus, the 4-channel quadraphonic version originally released in Japan only. Ccool boutique label, Hip-O Select, has remastered the original Motown album, scrounged until it found the Japanese Quad version (same track-listing) and then squeezed until it found 10 unreleased session tracks as well as a final unedited bonus cut of the Top 20 R&B hit, “Last Time I Saw Him.” The album didn’t fare too well due to Diana’s preoccupation with her Mahogany film/soundtrack project. It is all packaged over 2-CDs and has a new booklet with new notes and detailed recording credits and info. Last Time I Saw Him is scheduled to street on August 7.
