Check out this gem I picked up from Fantasyland Records in Atlanta. This is a promotional single for the 1975 Diana Ross release “Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To)” on yellow (or gold) vinyl; one side features the stereo mix of the song, the other side is mono. The single released to the public, which wasn’t on colored vinyl, was backed with the song “No One’s Gonna Be A Fool Forever,” which had been included on the Last Time I Saw Him album.
“Theme From Mahogany” — of course — went on to become one of Diana’s biggest hits. It climbed to #1 on the Pop chart (her third solo chart-topper), #1 Easy Listening, and went Top 20 on the Soul chart; it was also nominated for an Academy Award. It eventually became the first track on the smash 1976 LP Diana Ross.
Oh — and speaking of Mahogany — have you seen the “Couture Edition” released on DVD in May (celebrating the film’s 40th anniversary)? It comes with some pretty spectacular full-color cards of Miss Ross and her costume sketches.
