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".

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".

✨✧ Stephanie MillsFor The First Time ... LP
Motown, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".
