Burt Bacharach/Tom Jones/Dionne WarwickWhat's New Pussycat? ... LP
United Artists, 1965. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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

DellsDells Sing Dionne Warwick's Greatest Hits ... LP
Cadet, 1972. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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".

✨✧ Isaac Hayes & Dionne WarwickMan & A Woman ... LP
ABC, 1977. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful duet set from Ike Hayes and Dionne Warwick – one that draws on the classiest side of the Hayes spectrum, and uses his groove to help Dionne find some great new energy! Even in performance, the music has that great rich quality that Isaac always brought to his solo recordings in the 70s – with strings, backup singers, and some tight undercurrents that help keep things soulful throughout – really cutting through the schmaltz of Ike's shiny tux on the cover! Dionne really sparkles in his company – and the record features duo numbers, solo spots, and even some nice medley tracks. The band behind the pair are electric, mellow, and very soulful – and titles include "Can't Hide Love", "Chocolate Chip", "Then Came You", "Come Live With Me", "Unity", and "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" and "I Say A Little Prayer", done nicely in a medley together. LP, Vinyl record album
(In the die-cut gatefold cover. Cover has some light wear.)

✨✧ Dionne WarwickSoulful ... LP
Scepter, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dionne's certainly winning the "soulful" tag on this albums – working with Memphis producer Chips Moman, in a mode that's clearly designed to give her more credibility with the hipper soul scene at the end of the 60s! Burt Bacharach's still in the shadows, but Moman's the real genius on this set – working with Dionne to create a style that's got some of the same touches as Aretha Franklin's work on Atlantic, but a bit smoother overall – in keeping with the Warwick vocal mode. Dionne opens up amazingly in the set – hitting notes never heard on the Bacharach sides, and going for an almost gospel-inspired approach on a few numbers. Tracks includes "I'm Your Puppet", "You've Lost That Loving Feeling", "You're All I Need To Get By", "Do Right Woman", "People Get Ready", "We Can Work It Out", and "People Got To Be Free".

✨✧ Bill EnglishBill English ... LP
Vanguard, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".
