It's a gre...

WBD thanks for keeping us informed on the widespread appreciation for BB's music. It truly is timeless and my appreciation is renewed every time I hear one of his songs (whether it's a 50 year old version by Perry Como or Gene Pitney or a contemporary interpretation) Appreciate your posts!

There are a number of BB/HD songs arranged and conducted by others for DW including "This Girl Is In Love With You" and "Wanting Things" both arranged & conducted by Don Sebesky as well as "Message To Michael" (don't know who did that).

Being the cosummate professional that she is coupled with her incomparable musical abilty - not only has Dionne masterfully amended her vocal interpretations to accommodate the changes in her voice - she has the innate ability to overcome the obstacles that affect her voice such as weather condition...

Thanks for the "candid" and apparently "honest" review. If the performance ran just 60 minutes there must have been some reason for it. The San Diego concert last June ran 90 minutes + and for the most part Dionne was in "full voice". As stated in my review of that concert last June - Dionne has art...

Unfortunately - Dionne's 1973 album "Just Being Myself" was released during those Warner years where anything she recorded was underappreciated and unfairly compared to all her work with Burt & Hal. Dionne had no choice but to move on after Burt & Hal decided to go their separate ways - and "move on...

Jack Jones performed here in San Diego last June for an afternoon concert on the very same day that Dionne brought her 40th anniversary show to our city. Jack remains at the top of his game and praised Burt and joked about the one song that Dionne did not get before him! I posted my own review last ...

Great news! Carole once stated something along the the lines that Burt and Dionne should never stop collaborating with each other. I've always felt the same about Burt and Carole and obviously Burt and Hal. Re: Burt and Carole - one of the most memorable musical evenings for me was attending their j...
