Dionne WarwickDionne Warwick On Stage & In The Movies ... LP
Scepter, 1967. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Dionne Warwick's making a bit of a break from formula for this album – by singing a batch of tunes from films and shows, none of which were written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David! Yet despite this change from earlier records, the album's still got a sound that's strongly in keeping with Warwick's 60s years at Scepter Records – thanks to arrangements by Burt that help transform these older tunes, and update them with a new sense of maturity for Dionne's singing style. The real appeal of the record is the way that Bacharach changes things up with some of these overdone numbers – finding new corners to explore, and creating a sense of surprise that's quite different than other albums of this nature. Titles include "Something Wonderful", "Summertime", "My Favorite Things", "I Believe In You", "My Ship", "Anything You Can Do", and "He Loves Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Dionne WarwickDionne Warwick's Greatest Motion Picture Hits ... LP
Scepter, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
A late 60s collection of groovy tunes fronted by the always gorgeous voice of Dionne Warwick – some from movies she starred in, some from soundtracks she recorded, and others from films that she never had a hand in at all – other than covering the material and completely making it her own! Arrangements are by Burt Bacharach on half the tunes, but the groove is shaken up nicely on some other tunes arranged by Pat Williams, Garry Sherman, Bobby Scott and a couple of others – and titles include "Slaves", "The April Fools", "A House Is Not A Home", "The Look Of Love", "Alfie", and "Valley Of the Dolls".

Dionne WarwickGolden Hits Part 1 ... LP
Scepter, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
Lovely early work from Dionne – one of the greatest voices to ever get the support of the great Burt Bacharach, the guiding hand on this tasty batch of early singles! We hardly need tell you about these tracks, because if you know Dionne at all – these are the songs you know! Titles include "Walk On By", "Wishin & Hopin", "Don't Make Me Over", "Anyone Who Had A Heart", "Reach Out For Me", and "You'll Never Get To Heaven If You Break My Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dionne WarwickJust Being Myself ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good ... $16.99
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".

✨✧ Dionne WarwickNo Night So Long ... LP
Arista, 1980. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A key album in Dionne Warwick's career revival at Arista Records – a set that's filled with the kind of fuller sounds and maturing modes that worked quite well for her shifts in styles over the years! Warwick's a bit less fragile than in the Scepter years, but also not trying as hard to be an all-out soul singer as she was at Warner Brothers – instead nicely laying back into the album's grooves, which usually have a smooth, modern soul approach – almost in Phyllis Hyman territory at times, yet with more of the mainstream modes that were more appropriate for Warwick's audience. Production is by Steve Buckingham, and titles include "Sweetie Pie", "How You Once Loved Me", "It's The Falling In Love", "Easy Love", "We Had This Time", "When The World Runs Out Of Love", and "Somebody's Angel".

Dionne WarwickVery Dionne ... LP
Scepter, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $2.99
Dionne Warwick's last Bacharach album for Scepter Records – and really wonderful stuff! Burt's still very much at the helm on Very Dionne – working with Warwick in an ever-maturing mode that's expanded a bit with some help on arrangements from Marty Paich and Larry Wilcox. The mood is adult, but still has some of the dreamier touches of early pop days – and the Bacharach compositions are among some of the best of the bunch, and include "Walk The Way You Talk", "Check Out Time", "The Green Grass Starts To Grow", and "They Don't Give Medals To Yesterday's Heroes".

Dionne WarwickWindows Of The World ... LP
Scepter, 1967. Very Good ... $2.99
Seminal later work from Dionne Warwick – an album that perfectly sums up her evolving genius at Scepter Records! Windows Of The World continues the very successful Bacharach-led arrangement scheme – but also features Dionne deepening things a bit more vocally, and also hitting some more personal notes on a few tunes arranged by Peter Matz. 11 titles in all – including "The Windows Of The World", "I Say A Little Prayer", "Love", "Taking A Chance On Love", "(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me", "The Beginning Of Loneliness", "What's Good About goodbye", "Taking A Chance On Love", and "Somewhere".

✨✧ Dionne WarwickDionne (Arista) ... LP
Arista, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of those great 70s records that really reminds us that, way past Burt Bacharach, Dionne Warwick's a heck of a great soul singer! The album's a bit more polished than some of her other post-Scepter efforts from the decade – yet still comes off quite well, with Dionne really stretching out vocally – and bringing a lot more to the table than might be expected. There's a few uptempo cuts that are a bit off the mark, but Warwick really shines on the mellow and midtempo numbers. Titles include "Who What When Where Why", "All The Time", "In Your Eyes", "Feeling Old Feelings", "Deja Vu", "I'll Never Love This Way Again", and "After You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dionne WarwickTrack Of The Cat ... LP
Warner, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from Dionne Warwick – probably her greatest record after the early years! The session was recorded with production by Thom Bell at Sigma Sound in Philly – and the style is a sweet blend of Philly modes, from fragile ballads to midtempo groovers, all done in a warm and intimate style that's never cloying, and which really gets at the depth of Dionne's soulful style. The record's one of those that you might have passed by for years, but which if you heard it playing at someone's house, you'd say "Dang! What the heck is that?" Great all the way through, and with tracks that include "Track Of The Cat", "His House & Me", "Once You Hit The Road", "This Is Love", and "Love Me One More Time". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Isaac Hayes & Dionne WarwickMan & A Woman ... LP
ABC, 1977. Used 2LP Gatefold ... 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.

✨✧ Dionne WarwickMagic Of Believing ... LP
Scepter, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
Quite an unusual album for Dionne Warwick – a late 60s effort that has her returning to her gospel roots, and singing with backing from The Drinkard Sisters – a group originally founded by Dionne's mother, and which featured a young Cissy Houston! The sound here isn't as strictly gospel as you might expect – and in a way, it's almost an exploration of some of the more spiritual themes that echoed on some of Dionne's earlier hits written by Burt Bacharach – those slow-building and soulful moments that were themselves a reflection of Warwick's earlier roots. The arrangements aren't credited here, but they're also not as "churchy" as you might expect – and still have some of the sophistication of Bacharach backings from previous albums. Titles include "Somebody Bigger Than You & I", "The Magic Of Believing", "Steal Away", "Grace", and "In The Garden". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DellsDells Sing Dionne Warwick's Greatest Hits ... LP
Cadet, 1972. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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".

Scepter, Late 60s. Sealed Gatefold ... $3.99
Fantastic! This great Burt Bacharach score to an obscure film has some of his most fantastic orchestrations ever. The sound is cool, breezy, and with some amazing changes that make you gasp anew at his genius. Dionne Warwick sings on some tracks, and it's nice to hear her do material that you're not too familiar with. Titles include "He's Moving On" and "Amanda", and it has a gatefold cover.

✨✧ DellsFreedom Means ... LP
Cadet, 1971. Very Good- ... $8.99
A stunning set from the mighty mighty Dells – a cool collaboration with the legendary arranger Charles Stepney and songwriter Terry Callier – and a record that shows just how far the group had come since their streetcorner harmony days! The vocals are incredible – that rich blend of deep notes and soaring highs that made The Dells one of the most technically amazing soul groups in the 70s – and Stepney's arrangements follow in the same mode as his work for their Dionne Warwick album, and his music for Minnie Riperton and Ramsey Lewis – with lots of groovy currents on the bottom and soaring strings on the top – sophisticated, but completely soulful too – at a level that nobody else can touch! Terry Callier wrote the original tunes "The Love We Had Stays On My Mind", "Freedom Means", "Melody Man", "Free & Easy", "Rather Be With You", and "It's All Up To You" – and the set also includes great remakes of "One Less Bell To Answer", "Make It With You", and "If You Go Away/Love Story".

Lesley GoreSomeplace Else Now ... LP
MoWest, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
An obscure later album from Lesley Gore – and a set that's far more mature and adult than you might know from her 60s girl pop hits! The album's cut for Motown's MoWest subsidiary, and has the same hip style as other albums on the label at the time – kind of a California singer/songwriter style, which fits well with all the original material penned by Gore for the album – arranged with kind of a gentle, glowing sound by Artie Butler and the team of Michael Omartin and Jimmie Haskell. The approach is laidback and warm on most numbers, with compressed orchestrations that would be right at home behind Dionne Warwick – and titles include "She Said That", "Out Of Love", "For Me", "The Road I Walk", "Someplace Else Now", "Mine", and "Be My Life".

Stephanie MillsFor The First Time ... LP
Motown, 1975. Sealed ... $4.99
A really unusual album from the young Stephanie Mills – not only because it captures the singer at a wonderful early point in her career, when she was still open to a rich range of expression – but also because the whole thing was written and produced by the team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David – who almost work with Mills as a 70s update of their classics with Dionne Warwick! Yet the sound here is also different – deeper in that nicely matured way that Burt had brought to his own great albums and special projects of the time – with these sensitive emotional moments that are a real surprise from Mills, especially as she could have just been phoning it in at this point. Backings are definitely Bacharach-like, but nicely subtle too – again like the direction Burt himself was going at the time – and titles include "No One Remembers My Name", "Loneliness Remembers (What Happiness Forgets)", "This Empty Place", "The Way I Fell About You", and "All The Way To Paradise".

Nancy WilsonNancy ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A self-titled set from Nancy Wilson – and a record that definitely lives up to everything the Nancy name meant at the end of the 60s! The album's got a depth that can take on comers from all corners – enough class and sophistication to match the modes of Marlena Shaw or Dionne Warwick, but also enough punch to tackle the heavier soul styles of singers like Aretha Franklin or Fontella Bass – thanks to some heavier groovers on the package! There's loads of fresh numbers on the record – many given a great blast of jazz and soul by arranger Jimmy Jones – and titles include "Prisoner Of My Eyes", "Looking Back", "You'd Better Go", "What Do You See In Her", "We Could Learn Together", and "Player Play On".

VariousOut In The Streets Again – The Soul Sounds of Scepter ... LP
Scepter/Sundazed, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $12.99
Rare soul from the Scepter label – the famous home to the early work of Dionne Warwick and Burt Bacharach, but a very hip record company with a strong commitment to underground soul in the 60s! The best of that stretch is presented here – in a really well-done collection that's filled with obscure tracks that only every appeared as 45s, including some obscure cuts by bigger names, including a few that might surprise you! There's also a few blue-eyed soul tracks here too – titles that might seem a bit surprising on paper, but really fit the groove of the collection. Titles include "Work Song" by Tommy Hunt, "Dearly Beloved" by Jack Montgomery, "Just One More Time" by JJ Barnes, "The Change" by Ernestine Eady, "I'm Stepping Out Of The Picture" by Johnny Maestro & The Crests, "Out In The Streets Again" by Candy & The Kisses, "Lost Love" by Irma & The Fascinators, "Hey Watcha Doin" by Jerry Tiffe, "Marching" by The Camp, "Groovy Guy" by The Shirelles, "Tonight's The Night" by Candy & The Kisses, and "Ain't No Soul Left In These Old Shoes" by Ronnie Milsap.

✨✧ Carmen McRaeAlfie ... LP
Mainstream, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dionne Warwick may have made the title track a hit, but the tune stands as a great start for this classic 60s album from Carmen McRae – one of those superb gems from a time when the singer was really finding herself – and hitting this mature territory that gave her what she fully deserved on record! The backings here are handled by Peter Matz and Don Sebesky – both of whom bring all their experience to bear on the album, and really turn things up from some of Carmen's small combo sets – using strings and other orchestrations in these ways that are subtle, but powerful – never overwhelming the singer, but underscoring her emotional balance in a really great way. Titles include "Alfie", "Who Can I Turn To", "Don't Ever Leave Me", "The Music That Makes Me Dance", "He Loves Me", "Once Upon A Summertime", and "The Sweetest Sounds". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bill EnglishBill English ... LP
Vanguard, Early 60s. Used ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with obi!)
