Dionne Warwick Rarities Collection

Post by malcolmpordes »

From her Scepter days:

There are a few songs on here that I don't have, but probably not enough to get the CD. I'm not interested in the foreign language versions.

Talk about scraping the barrel!
It`s too bad that she and Burt couldn`t put aside their differences long enough to make one final album.

I do not believe she ever did record anything from it .... I was surprised when Dionne was asked during an interview for her opinion of the "Painted From Memory" album a few years after it was released. ... Her response: I've never listened to it! .... This is consistent with her overall attitude toward others who have recorded Burt's material through the years.

I must be in the minority here - I am so looking forward to hearing some of these rarities - and I still think that the Scepter recordings are the high point of Dionne's singing career. Her voice and range are breathtaking in some of her discs from that period. Bring it on!
