Re: New Album By Dionne Coming

It's not great by any means but arn't they just having a load of fun ... how else? Dionne's great with the kids. I think you are right GehVorbei .. for all the fund rasing errors there are some great ones and I don't think she is being deserted by her friends ... but what are we expecting from her a...

Re: Who was Dionne Warwick married to?

Hello! Dionne was married to Wiiliam Elliot in 1966. They subsequently divorced and then remarried I think in the early 70's William is the father to their two sons David and Damon. It was a great love story. As major artists of their time their careers seemed to be in conflict and their personal li...

Re: DIONNE WARWICK ... 72 / 50

Yes Ron .. well said. A good LA friend of mine said exactly the same .. the Christmas album could have been relaunched on the back of the new album .... To compensate I listened to an excellent BBC Radio 2 hour tonight called 'The Wonder of Warwick' .. suberbly done covering her entire career. It's ...

Re: What happened to this site?

As you know ... I'm completely with you all the way GehVorbei. Dionne's Phil Ramone recordings are fabulous ..Love Is Still the Answer, Be Aware .. it's a great CD which hasn't had the big profile it deserves. Dionne as always has a select audience. I listened to a concert the other evening with Dia...

Re: DIONNE WARWICK ... 72 / 50

Hey Ron .. it's Christmas Eve and I'm listening to Dionne's amazing Christmas album recorded a few years ago and I can't think of any much better. Produced by the amazing Tena Clark, every song an absolute gem. Dionne's Christmas album, long over due, leaves Rod Stewart's (awful)and Michael Buble's ...

Re: DIONNE WARWICK ... 72 / 50

Sorry Peter ... have to disagree ... they 'separated' long ago but have recorded a surprising amount of songs since then. Quite a long list in fact .. and have performed together on many occasions. Dionne's new album has solely Burt and Hal songs ....

Re: DIONNE WARWICK ... 72 / 50

Yes blue .. it would be fantastic ... the songs you have listed are brilliant and would respond to the full Phil Ramone treatment in the same manner as the current songs on 'Now'. Word needs to get across to either Phil or Dionne NOW!

Re: DIONNE WARWICK ... 72 / 50

Hello Ron .. I absolutely agree .. I rarely revisit the Whitney songs. There is too much hard work in them. It's Dionne's interpretive skills which are excellent. I love her new songs on the new album and wish there were a whole lot more. She has a perfectly relaxed tone but with depth and meaning t...

Re: DIONNE WARWICK ... 72 / 50

Hi face ... the careers of Dionne and Whitney are difficult to compare. The 'sound' pioneered by Burt Bacharach/Hal David and Dionne was quite extraordinary as forged new territory and it held it's own during the era of the groups and then disco. Dionne's road to success was therefore defined in a d...

Re: DIONNE WARWICK ... 72 / 50

It's really great to read everyone's in put about Dionne Warwick's birthday etc To answer your question 'face'. Dionne was very big, to quote Bachto Bacharach, the biggest female recording artist for a certain period in the 60's and I think early 70's. BachtoBacharach is excellent in his detailed kn...

Re: DIONNE WARWICK ... 72 / 50

I sadly have to note zero response to Dionne Warwick's birthday (and 50th anniversary in song) on this site apart from Ron Hertel and myself. It's to be understood, as it's Burt Bacharach's homepage and I'm begining to question why I'm on it! However, I think it is Dionne who brought Burt Bacharach ...
