    From The Diana Ross Project:

    Diana Ross & the Supremes Sing and Perform “Funny Girl” was mainly recorded in June of 1968 (with some backgrounds added in July) and released a few months later — not coincidentally, just as the film version of Funny Girl premiered. According to Supremes musical director Gil Askey, “It was what you would call a rush job. We did the whole thing in two days in New York.” By all accounts, Motown founder Berry Gordy, Jr. and Diana Ross were extremely impressed with the multi-media success of Barbra Streisand, and wanted to demonstrate that Ross was ever bit as capable of a performer.
