"To Love Again" is a 1981 compilation album by Diana Ross, produced by Michael Masser. Following the success of 1980's Diana, produced by Chic, the set was released in early 1981 and consisted of old and newly recorded love songs by Ross. "It's My Turn" was the main theme from a 1980 movie starring Michael Douglas and Jill Clayburgh and had been released both on the soundtrack album and as a single prior to the To Love Again compilation and the title track was originally included on the overlooked 1978 album Ross. Two of the three new recordings, "One More Chance" and "Cryin' My Heart Out for You", were issued as singles.
To Love Again was to be Ross' last album of new material for Motown (before her return in 1989) after signing a $20 million contract with RCA. What remaind under reported is that she simultaneously signed a similar contract with EMI as her international label marketing and distributing her albums outside of North America. Since EMI had long since distributed and marketed Motown releases since the early 60s, Diana had a long standing relationship with EMI that
In 2003 Motown/Universal Music re-released the album doubling the number of tracks to twenty. Two of the tracks, "We're Always Saying Goodbye" and "Share Some Love", had been previously unreleased. It also marked the first time many of the songs appeared on compact disc.
The album was eventually certified platinum and though it contained nearly 50% previously released material, many in the "Ross Tribe" fan club views this as a legitimate studio album, albeit a Michael Masser collection.
