Today for those Pacific Symphony 4th of July Spectacular ‘Music of The Eagles’  tickets be listening for the Diana Ross version of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”

Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell recorded the original version peaking at #19 in 1967.

The song was written by the Motown husband and wife songwriting duo Ashford & Simpson. Nick Ashford was inspired by an experience when he first moved to New York. He was walking down a Manhattan thoroughfare, determined that New York City would not get the best of him, the words “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” popped into his head.

Dina Ross had many hits with The Supremes, but this was Diana’s first #1 solo hit.

Motwon president Berry Gordy didn’t like her version because there was too much talking at the beginning.

We’ll take caller #15 to win ‘Tickets @ 2′ at 1-800-232-KRTH. (5784).
