Re: New Version of What the World Needs Now by Dionne Warwick

Yes, unfortunately. I was so looking forward to new music from her, but I became suspicious when a reviewer wrote that the"new" recording had a gentle gospel arrangement. I have had the CD that I linked in my previous post since it came out, so I am well-acquainted with Dionne's gentle gos...

Dionne "sounds better than she has in years" because ... this was recorded in 2003! https://www.amazon.com/Church-Songs-Inspiration-Various-Artists/dp/B00008OLX5/ref=sr_1_1?crid=80O7CSQ5SKCU&keywords=church+songs+of+soul+and+inspiration&qid=1554155147&s=gateway&sprefix=chur...

Re: Revelations about Dee Dee Warrick

I have a few more thoughts about this post, now that I've had some days to let it sink in. Have any of you read Cissy's book, How Sweet the Sound? She is fairly candid about some of the struggles that she has had, particularly the emotional effects of losing her mother at a young age, as well as her...

Re: Revelations about Dee Dee Warrick

B2B, welcome back! I, too, wish that the Houston family and everyone else would let Whitney rest once and for all instead of continuing to cash in on her pain. I admire Dionne for her reluctance to take part in any of it, even though she could surely use the money!

And, of course, the Philip Michael Thomas story is not to be missed. They were dating at the time!

Re: Burt's Top 3 songs of all time(I know it's subjective)

Burt's two best songs are "Alfie" and "A House Is Not A Home." I never tire of them, and they always make me FEEL something. They're perfect music. As for the third, my first instinct was "Anyone Who Had A Heart," but then I remembered "Looking With My Eyes," ...

Dionne's Legacy as a Pioneer

Along with Burt/Hal/Dionne, Earth Wind and Fire sits at the pinnacle of popular music to my ears. I just finished reading Maurice White's riveting autobiography, My Life with Earth, Wind, and Fire (https://www.amazon.com/My-Life-Earth-Wind-Fire/dp/0062329154), and I recommend it highly for anyone wh...

Re: Doesn't America like Burt?

When I saw Burt a few years ago here in the US, the venue was full and very enthusiastic. However, it only sat about 2,000 people. Echoing what Blair said, nearly everyone there was on the older side -- there was lots of white hair! The artists from that era (Dionne among them) always say that their...

Hal's widow, Eunice, has written a book about Hal. Hear her discuss it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1yvuIXXGxA. It's great to see Hal getting some attention for a change!

I'm kind of concerned because Aretha is one of my all-time favorites, and it sounds like she may be losing her grip a bit. I also thought that Dionne w...

Re: Dionne Warwick - Honoring Clive Davis

I listened to both songs again, and I agree that this was a defining night of Dionne's late career. This is the "Park West" of her 70s!
