Burt Bacharach/Tom Jones/Dionne WarwickWhat's New Pussycat? ... LP
United Artists, 1965. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The classic Burt Bacharach score for What's New Pussycat – a mid 60s sex-farce starring Peter Sellers and Peter O'Toole! The album features some amazing vocal tracks that have become enduring classics – like "What's New Pussycat?" sung by Tom Jones, "Here I Am" sung by Dionne Warwick, and the incredible "My Little Red Book" sung by Manfred Mann – but almost better than these are the Bacharach instruments – handled by Burt in ways that really move past some of the simpler stylings of his pop work of the time, yet which still have all the breezy Bacharach charm firmly intact! Some of these sweet original titles include "Marriage, French Style", "Stripping Really Isn't Sexy, Is It?", "Catch As Catch Can", and "Pussy Cats On Parade". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

✨✧ DellsDells Sing Dionne Warwick's Greatest Hits ... LP
Cadet, 1972. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Forget Dionne Warwick, and think Burt Bacharach – because on this sublime little set, The Dells are singing some of Burt's greatest tunes ever – all set to impeccable arrangements by the legendary Charles Stepney! The album's more wonderful than you might even expect – a true high point in the career of all parties involved – and a tremendous recasting of Bacharach's original brilliance – taking his key compositions into the most sophisticated styles of the Chicago soul scene in the 70s! There's a sense of timing and phrasing here that's quite unique – hardly simple covers of Dionne Warwick's approach to these hits – and Stepney's backings feature his own Fender Rhodes, guitar from Phil Upchurch, percussion from members of The Pharoahs, and some fuller horns, harp, and strings. The Dells are equally great too – and serve up some of the best vocals of their career – really magnificent harmonies, and soaring solo parts that seem to even go beyond their best-known hits. Titles include "Walk On By", "Trains & Boats & Planes", "I Say A Little Prayer", "Wives & Lovers", "Close To You", "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself", "This Guy's In Love With You", "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head", and "A House Is Not A Home". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner & some light wear.)

✨✧ Dionne WarwickJust Being Myself ... LP
Warner, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
While the title may claim that Dionne Warwick is "Just Being Myself", the sound of the set is something completely different – a surprisingly great album that has the lady working with the post-Motown production team of Holland-Dozier-Holland! There's a quality here that resonates strongly from the very first note – a bold move away from Bacharach to some of the more adult soul modes explored in the 70s – handled by HDH with full-on backings on some numbers, but with a more gentle Warwick-styled groove on others. The album's got a depth we never would have expected – especially from the slightly-soppy cover – and Dionne's manage to bring in all the strengths from earlier years, yet also recast them a bit with a fuller soul-based groove on the set. The album features the surprisingly funky "I'm Just Being Myself", which has some great sinister flute over skittish drums – plus the tracks "You're Gonna Need Me", "Come Back", "Don't Burn The Bridge", "Don't Let My Teardrops Bother You", and "I Think You Need Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a cut corner.)

Bill EnglishBill English ... LP
Vanguard, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A rare groover from drummer Bill English – Dionne Warwick's husband during part of the 60s, and a great little player in his own right! The set's one of the rare few hardbop sides cut for the Vanguard label – and it's got a crack quintet lineup that features horn work by Dave Burns on trumpet and Seldon Powell on tenor and flute. The groove's similar to Burns' rare album for the same label – a mixture of soulful hardbop with slight touches of Latin, and perhaps a bit of a modernist groove at a few points. The best numbers are originals – no-nonsense jazz tunes with a clear and simply soulful approach. Titles include "Rollin", "Heavy Soul", "Sel's Tune", "Blues Serenade", and "222".
