"Let the Sunshine In" is a 1969 album by Diana Ross & the Supremes for the Motown label. It contains the hit single "I'm Livin' in Shame" (the sequel to 1968's number-one hit "Love Child"), "The Composer," a Smokey Robinson composition that peaked at #27, and "No Matter What Sign You Are," a single produced by Motown chief Berry Gordy that failed to crack to Top 30 (It peaked at 31).
