Born into a musical family in New Jersey near the end ofDionne Warwick her real surname being Warrick, which she changed from when an early single of hers carried the misprint Warwick began singing as part of a gospel choir at an early age. She then enjoyed massive success with the pair from the early 60s onwards, but the next decade was marked by difficulties and setbacks.
After many years of mild successes and a long series of out and out flop singles, she switched to Arista, which would provide the road back to the charts for Dionne.
Her debut for Arista, Dionne, is a more than respectable post-disco platter. The songs are just not as memorable. There are a few too many perfectly pretty but indistinct ballads, which makes for a curiously unbalanced sensation. All things considered it does seem like a bit of a missed opportunity though, the chance was there to put out a hot dance funk LP at the very tail end of disco. The bonus numbers of this disc have a lot more of the same thing, suggesting that was a mellow old time for Dionne.
Coming out a year later the double album Hot! Live And Otherwise does exactly what it says on LP tin. The blandly titled Hit Record Medley jams snippets from across the years into a 20 minute piece, rather like Stars On 45 without the dance beat but increased quality control. Bright opening track For You was natural single material and Dionne pairs up Album) Johnny Mathis well on the title track.
No bonus tracks on this one, but it is a decent collection nonetheless. As far as fool-proof schemes go, getting Dionne Warwick to sing songs written by the Bee Gees has to be right up there. The cool jazz funk of Take The Short Way Home, with the BGs very much in evidence on backing vocals, also proves Dionne could still do faster numbers with real style, Album).
A deservedly successful LP. Vandross was at the time at the peak of his powers and it seemed the right fit. Collaborating with these other high-calibre artists really gave Dionne a really shot in the arm. Even the slower songs, which seems samey on a few LPs here, shine. The title track is a good example, a fine duet with Luther and the sultry What Can A Miracle Do shows real emotion and depth.
The sole bonus track on this disc is a nice dance remix of Got A Date, all of which makes up for a good selection. Apart from those two, which were produced by Stevie Wonder, Barry Manilow was back behind the decks. This time round it is a lot more syrupy and I have to say, at times dull. This record feels like a step backwards from the quality of the last few albums to me. Bacharach And David wrote the title track, which in another form was the theme to a short lived TV series of the same name, a better duet with Glen Jones Luther Vandross deps for him actual TV theme, presented as a bonus track here.
Begin The Beguine - Dionne Warwick - Sings Cole Porter (Vinyl which I feel was a great thing to do, talk about making a difference, well Dionne certainly did. Unfortunately for Friends the album, after this promising start it gradually settles down to a long runs of ballads done in mostly a soporific fashion.
No lively bonuses to pick things up after the album proper either. The title of Reservations For Two was a subtle hint that here Dionne was rolling out the big guns in supporting roles. Talking of good records, the simply titled Dionne Warwick Sings Cole Porter album is an absolute peach. In reading the songs, she is LP rate here and the instrumental accompaniment wonderfully on point.
The jazz version of Night And Day is quite brilliant and just one of many stunning selections. The highlight LP this set for me. The smooth soul of the title track is also a winner and the orchestrated set closer I Sing At Dawn is good too. A Brazilian album was not such a weird step as it might seem on the face of it, Dionne had fell in love with the country whilst on tour.
She spent a large part of her time in Brazil, eventually moving to live there. Last one. Similar sponsored items Feedback on our suggestions - Similar sponsored items.
