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

Well, so much for that! I fell for the con! I sounded better 15 years ago than I do now! Warwick and Elliott continue to foist bogus lackluster crap on the public. The video clearly shows a current Warwick singing or lip syncing to the 15 year old recording. Besides, I should have known better since...

New Version of What the World Needs Now by Dionne Warwick

Surprisingly good remake of What the World Needs Now by Dionne Warwick from the forthcoming album She’s Back. Warwick sounds better than she has in years.

Re: New Dionne Album

Blair, with Damon Elliott at the helm, I am afraid that this album will be just as dreadful as those he produced for his mom in the early 2000s. At least from what I’m hearing this may be a little bit of a departure since apparently they are not mining Warwick’s back catalogue. I do recall that the ...

Re: Was it Dionne or was it Burt/Hal?

Hereiam, regarding the false narrative that Warwick was too "white" and sang white music, I respond below. As Cissy Houston famously remarked when asked in an interview about the matter regarding Warwick's "blackness" dismissed the whole discussion with a simple question: "H...

Re: Revelations about Dee Dee Warrick

Cissy Houston was largely an absent mother who was apparently hell on wheels, from all accounts, when she deemed it necessary to make an appearance in her children's lives, particularly when she was trying to establish a solo career and getting nowhere. I've heard tell she would come in off tour lik...

Re: Revelations about Dee Dee Warrick

I have never met Pat Houston on a personal basis but have heard enough scuttlebutt, public and private, to opine that she is a shady, shady character...a slick user and a manipulator. She has been manipulating Cissy and Gary for years and she was in Whitney's ear just about every waking minute. What...

Revelations about Dee Dee Warrick

Haven't posted in years here but I wanted to share my thoughts and opinions regarding the Houstons and the “revelation” that Whitney Houston was molested by Dee Dee Warwick at about the age of six to eight in that new documentary coming out that is "authorized by the Houston family". It wa...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Martyn, In the US, Dionne Warwick had a sizable hit in the US and Canada with Trains, Boats and Planes in mid-1966 and she sang the entire bridge which most artists who covered the tune didn't attempt. Warwick's version is by far my favorite recording of the tune and with an original Bacharach arran...

Neat Old French Film of Dionne Warwick-Cannes 1964

From Dailymotion, here is an interesting film of Dionne Warwick lip-syncing Walk On By with a jazz combo in the background. As French short films go, the photography by Jacques Duhamel is top notch. According to the end credits, these films (there are additional films for Anyone Who Had a Heart, Any...

Re: Dionne Warwick, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane from the O'Keefe Center 1967

Blair, the single was released on the Atlantic label in May of 1974 and went nowhere...it was originally released as Dionne Warwicke and Spinners. The re-release was issued in August1974, again on the Atlantic label not on Dionne's label, and the record hit...Warwick received top billing on both rel...

Re: Dionne Warwick, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane from the O'Keefe Center 1967

Just Being Myself was an album that should have done better! Dionne was playing with a funky vibe on those tracks and she nailed it! I remember Dionne's 1973 appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson to promote the tune and the album. Dionne was pregnant with Damon Elliott (b. Ma...

Re: Dionne Warwick, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane from the O'Keefe Center 1967

Dionne's work with Thom Bell strangely left me unmoved except for the excellent "Then Came You" which a pairing with the Spinners allowed her to be more soulful and cut loose. Track of the Cat was not one of my favorite albums and the only tune I liked was Once You Hit the Road. Somehow, D...

Re: Dionne Warwick, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane from the O'Keefe Center 1967

There were a handful of tunes on the album that I liked...Be Aware, If You Never Say Goodbye, and I Just Have to Breathe (the tune on that album with that trademark sound) but otherwise, consider that only three original tunes were introduced on the album...Goodbye, Breathe, The Balance of Nature.
