Unearthed Movie starring Dionne (1992)

I was you-tubing and ran across “Extralarge: Black Magic” starring Dionne Warwick along with Phillip-Michael Thomas. I can't believe I'd never heard of this movie since I try and keep up with 'all things Dionne' but I viewed the excerpt that's up and my, my, my, Dionne looks stunningly gorgeous, AND...

Elvis' Sterling Performance

Just watched Jimmy Kimmel Live which featured Elvis singing “You Shouldn't Look At Me That Way” from the movie “Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool” and, to me, sounded better than ever! That song is reminiscent of his songs from his “North” album—the way he bends and extends certain notes. His perfor...

Re: Burt and Tonio K. Original Demos CD Track Listing

Correction: Deedles' song title is “Never Take That Chance Again”, not “Never Make That Mistake Again”—sorry.

Re: Burt and Tonio K. Original Demos CD Track Listing

Thanks aspprod for sharing the track list and what a list! I assume that Bill Champlin will be the one on "if I Should Lose You" since it appeared on Chicago XXVI. I have Deedle's {Diane Schurr} version of “Never Make That Same Mistake Again" and Randy Crawford's version of “Tell It To Your Heart”—b...

Re: CONTANTE AND SONANTE BRAND NEW CD

Thanks for sharing the great news, aspprod! The two vocalists you mentioned happens to be favorites of mine as well. I can't wait. Wonder if “Change My Mind” recently done by Billy Valentine and also featured on an episode of “The Nanny” could possibly be included? That song is one of my very favori...

Where was Dionne, Barbra, and Al?

Sitting here watching the Grammy's Tribute to the Bee Gees and just wondering where were the likes of Dionne (“Heartbreaker"), Barbra (“Guilty”), and, of course, Al Green (“How Do You Mend A Broken Heart?”)? I expected to see at least one of them if not all three. The presentation was still good but...

Re: That's How Heartaches Are Made

Bonjour, In response to my own earlier post referencing the late Van McCoy as the one I thought wrote “That's How Heartaches Are Made” however it was another song I was thinking about entitled “When You're Young And In Love” also recorded by the Marvelettes. Another favorite of mine is Justine “Baby...

Re: That's How Heartaches Are Made

Bonjour mon ami, I remember when that song first came out. I was working at my dad's motel and they had jukeboxes in each room and I put a dime in and played it and was blown away! Several years later, I heard the Marvelettes' recording of this song and was blown away all over again. All these years...

Re: Essra Mohawk an obscure gem similar to Laura Nyro

Hi geoff85, I bought a CD of Essra's several years ago on a whim simply because it featured one of my all-time favorite singers—Bonnie Bramlett. I had never heard of Essra until I visited Bonnie's site and was reading the list of recordings that she appeared on. When I listened to the CD, I was plea...

Re: Close To You

Thanks Blair for sharing that link. That version (taken from "Make Way for Dionne Warwick") is my favorite. The piano chords that are used in this version are just sheer magic—they're not used in her 1972 version. If Burt wasn't playing on the 1964 recording, then there was somone named Paul Griffin...

Re: Mingus B`day Bash on KCR

Thanks Blair, I probably will miss most of it as I am employed and want to stay so. Caught him in 1968 at the Schlitz Salute to Jazz at the State Fairgrounds Arena in OKC. Also billed were Gary Burton Quartet, Dionne Warwick (sang the hell out of "Reach Out For Me"), and Jimmy Smith (who replaced We...
