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...

Eunice David on her new book about Hal

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!

For those of us who know Dionne's version from 1966, this is a poignant revisit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2BiAiz4_Cw. Enjoy!

OT: Aretha feuding with Dionne

Can you all believe this foolishness? http://www.cbsnews.com/news/aretha-franklin-slams-dionne-warwick-for-her-comment-at-whitney-houstons-funeral/. 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!

Re: Dionne Warwick - Honoring Clive Davis

Dionne is definitely enjoying a bit of a vocal Renaissance right now, and I love it! What do you think is going on? As much as I love her, I was ready to call for her retirement about 3 or 4 years ago, yet now she is kicking ass all over again! I'm not sure that "I'll Never Love This Way Again&...

Re: DJ Khaled, Jay Z, Beyonce, and ... Dionne/Burt/Hal?

Good work, team! I figured it out pretty immediately, since I've gone through periods of listening to the Very Dionne album quite heavily. It's always exciting for me to hear this wonderful music in new contexts!

Re: Dionne's Concert at Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club- March 1, 2017

It looks like I'm kind of talking to myself here, but I just thought I'd point out that someone uploaded her full concert from two nights after I saw her. It is an exact replica, except she was in even better voice here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QS82QEPlhnI. Enjoy!

Re: Dionne's Concert at Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club- March 1, 2017

I just remembered a question that I meant to pose: does anyone know what those little white tablets are that Dionne takes during her concerts? She has had them laid out on the piano each of the three times that I've seen her, and she makes no effort to conceal that she's taking them. Whatever it is,...
