Re: Dionne Warwick's voice

Yes I too think that $4m seems unbelievably little taking her career and universal profile influence etc How does she even manage the cabs to and from the hundreds of airports in cities she visits all over the world! In an interview with the Guardian last week she said that she could give up touring...

Re: Dionne Warwick's voice

Thanks for those startling facts BachtoBacharach. I was under the misapprehension that Dionne was heir to a lot of the Bacharach and David royalties after the legalities of the split and that she has also funded the continuation of her later recording career and the huge amount of touring? $4m would...

Re: Dionne Warwick's voice

Many thanks for your comments BachtoBacharach ... please don't get me wrong. Of course everyone has their opinion and I really respect yours. I'm just so passionate about the lady.. my partner thinks I need counselling!!? I'm sure by watching Dionne up close all her flaws must be noticeable. Yes whe...

Re: Dionne Warwick's voice

I hear what you all say but please just listen Dionne's FABULOUS voice on her new CD 'Now' especially in the new songs ... her mellow tones coupled to the fabulously sumptuous Phil Ramone orchestrations I think is definately the coolest sound around at the moment .. Her voice sort of nestles in the ...

Re: Didn't have to wait 'til Tuesday

I also like 'Now' a lot Bruce .. especially the new songs 'I Just Have To Breathe' and 'Be Aware' ..beautiful timing and tone to them I too hope Dionne will record again and I'm sure she will. She has had huge coverage here in the UK and Europe with a +++ hectic schedule. I look forward to FULL bodi...

Re: Samples of all 12 songs on Dionne's new album "Now"

Thank you GehVorbei for posting these two films to coincide with the release of 'Now' today in the UK. Dionne spraoned her ankle yesterday hence seated position on Strictly Come Dancing last night!

Re: Alison Moyet - God Give Me Strenght

This recording you have posted is absolutely fabulous. Alison Moyet is one of the great singers of our time and it is such a pity we don't hear more from her .. especially coupled with Elvis Costello.

Re: Samples of all 12 songs on Dionne's new album "Now"

Yes! I agree. Dionne's songs on 'Now' are super! She should be top of the charts for the next year if each song were released as a single .. like Adele! Can't see her marketing team managing that? They should have a good go if they are worth their money. Dionne is on TV here for the next 10 days as ...

Re: Samples of all 12 songs on Dionne's new album "Now"

I have to say ... I love the low keys in Dionne's voice and have done so for a long time ... I also think the American press is being surprisingly good about Dionne's new release. Europe in general and elsewhere LOVE Dionne! It's difficult to know what one would do on a 50th Anniversary recording bu...

Re: Samples of all 12 songs on Dionne's new album "Now"

Listening again .. Blair you are wrong! I posted something last night which I thought maybe offensive and then deleted it. Sorry!! Anyhow, in the scheme of things what are you expecting from Dionne? Please show some respect for survival, age and beauty in a super difficult industry!? What an amazing...

Hey GehVorbei! That is FABULOUS news!! Are all the songs Phil Ramone produced? This has exceeded all my expectations as they are all great songs and the new ones too.
