Written and produced almost entirely by Ashford & Simpson, this solo self-titled debut from Diana Ross was released in 1970 only months after her final appearance with the Supremes. It proved to be a massive success, selling over 500,000 albums and yielding two huge hits, the number one single Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and Reach Out And Touch (Somebody’s Hand), which together sold almost two million copies. Ross also earned a Grammy nomination, the first of many during her solo career.

Her self-titled debut LP (later retitled Ain’t No Mountain High Enough after the single became a hit) was arguably her finest solo work at Motown and perhaps her best ever; it was certainly among her most stunning. Everyone who doubted whether Diana Ross could sustain a career outside the Supremes found out immediately that she would be a star. The single “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” remains a staple in her shows, and is still her finest message track. ~~AllMusic Review by Ron Wynn
