Burt Bacharach/Tom Jones/Dionne WarwickWhat's New Pussycat? ... LP
United Artists, 1965. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Dionne WarwickDeja Vu – The Arista Recordings 1979 to 1994 (12CD set) ... CD
Arista/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 12CD ... $49.99
A huge run of music from the legendary Dionne Warwick – all of it very different than her early work with Burt Bacharach, and brought together as a strong testament to her ability to change and grow over the years! Although Dionne started as a sweeter singer in the 60s, and had a few great Warner Brothers moments during the 70s – she really reemerged strongly on Arista at the end of that decade – thanks to strong help from a label that really knew what to do with a top-shelf female singer, and help them move past some of the pop and disco pitfalls that brought down some of their contemporaries in the decade! Warwick really returned to the American consciousness with these records, then kept on growing and maturing – really able to shift through a range of styles as the 80s moved into the 90s, even ending up with a bit of jazz in the mix – as you'll hear on this long run of records. The box set features twelve full albums, a great value for the price – records that include Dionne, No Night So Long, Hot Live & Otherwise, Friends In Love, Heartbreaker, How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye, Finder Of Lost Loves, Friends, Reservations For Two, Sings Cole Porter, Friends Can Be Lovers, and Aquarela Do Brasil.

Dionne WarwickSoulful ... LP
Scepter, 1969. Very Good ... $4.99
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".

✨✧ Dionne WarwickHeartbreaker ... LP
Arista, 1983. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet 80s soul from Dionne Warwick – an album that features a fair bit of production work from Barry Gibb – and a sometime sound that definitely shows his presence! The style here is smoother than Dionne in earlier years – with a nice undercurrent of jazz in the instrumentation, one that helps keep things hipper than you might expect – and which avoids a lot of the cliches of early 80s pop soul that might muck things up. Gibb's touch helps things glide nicely at times – a bit of that soulful Bee Gees flourish – and tracks include "Heartbreaker", "It Makes No Difference", "Take The Short Way Home", "Just One More Night", "You Are My Love", and "Our Day Will Come".

✨✧ Dionne WarwickValley Of The Dolls ... LP
Scepter, Late 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not really the soundtrack for the movie – but a sweet batch of tracks that feature the lovely Dionne Warwick singing the title tune – and stretching out on a host of other great 60s numbers too! The album was recorded in two different sessions, mostly with backings by Burt Bacharach – who always makes his own music sound great – with a bit of extra help from Pat Williams, Manny Albam, and Garry Sherman – who each get a tune to work with. Gone is the dreamy optimism of some of Dionne's earlier albums – and in its place is a more mature, slightly sadder style that's really great. Titles include "Valley Of The Dolls", "For The Rest Of My Life", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", "Silent Voices", "Let Me Be Lonely", "You're My World", "Where Would I Go", and "Walking Backwards Down The Road".

✨✧ Dionne WarwickVery Dionne ... LP
Scepter, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 WarwickLove At First Sight ... LP
Warner, 1977. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
The final Warner Brothers album from Dionne Warwick – and a smooth, sophisticated affair done with full arrangements from Michael Omartian! The sound's still not as pop disco as you might expect from the time, and Dionne's gentle vocals are often cast in backings that step along nicely with a mellow, midtempo groove – one that's a bit like some of the best Philly soul of the period, yet still with a bit more California polish overall. The album works surprisingly well as a soul record – and really puts Warwick in the company of a whole generation of younger singers who'd risen above her by this point in the 70s. Titles include "One Thing On My Mind", "Don't Ever Take Your Love Away", "Livin It Up Is Startin To Get Me Down", "Since You Stayed Here", "A Long Way To Go", and "Keepin My Head Above Water".

✨✧ Dee Dee WarwickSuspicious Minds/I'm Glad I'm A Woman ... 7-inch
Atco, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A great cut from Dionne's harder sister! Dee Dee's cover of "Suspicious Minds" is pretty nice, but the really great cut here is "I'm Glad" – as it begins with a firm horn blast over drumbreaks, then rolls into a warm soul vocal that's very much in a Sweet Inspirations mode. Produced by Dave Crawford, and with funky backing by the Dixie Flyers! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Dee Dee WarwickFoolish Fool (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work from Dee Dee WarwickDionne's more soulful sister, and a heck of a singer! The record's got a mix of uptown soul production and deeper soul styles, with a sophisticated style that reminds us of Chicago work by singers like Joann Garrett, Marlena Shaw, or Ruby Andrews – totally tight and sophisticated up top, but with a nice kick on the bottom that really deepens up the groove! The sound is really wide-ranging – similar to what you might find on Shaw's Cadet albums from the time – and production is by some top shelf talents throughout – including Lou Courtney to Ed Townsend to Jerry Ross to Gamble & Huff – all of whom leave their own impressions on the record. Titles include "Foolish Fool", "You Taught Me To Love", "Thank God", "That's Not Love", "Thank You Love", and "When Love Slips Away". Great bonus tracks from singles, too – including "Ring Of Bright Water", "Next Time You Fall In Love", "All The Love That Went To Waste", "I Who Have Nothing", and "I Haven't Got Anything Better To Do".

Carmen McRaeAlfie ... LP
Mainstream, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

VariousBurt Bacharach – The First Book Of Songs 1954 to 1958 ... CD
El (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... $16.99
A host of early Burt Bacharach compositions – mostly not sung or recorded by the maestro himself, but handled by a host of different talents from the 50s! The package is a great testament to the depths of Burt's writing, even at this early point – and many numbers are from the generation before Bacharach started hitting big with Dionne Warwick, which makes the tunes sound a lot fresher than some of his 60s hits. The style is more conventionally pop, but still pretty darn great – and there's some surprisingly great soundtrack numbers on the set too. Titles include "Humble Pie" by The Four Preps, "Peggy's In The Pantry" by Sherry Parsons, "The Morning Mail" by The Gallahads, "I Cry More" by Alan Dale, "The Story Of My Life" by Marty Robbins, "These Desperate Hours" by Mel Torme, "That Kind Of Woman" by Joe Williams, "It Seemed So Right Last Night" by Mary Mayo, "Saturday Night In Tijuana" by The Five Blobs, and "The Story Of My Life" by Michael Holliday.

VariousReady Or Not – Thom Bell Philly Soul Arrangements & Productions 1965 to 1978 ... CD
Ace/Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Sublime soul from the great Thom Bell – one of our favorite arranger, producer, songwriters of all time – and a talent who really helped push the Philly soul scene much farther than most during the 70s! Bell was trained as a classical pianist as a kid – which might explain part of his ear for a special sort of tune – but by the time of this work, he was neck-deep in the soul scene – and working with a fantastic track record for bringing the best out of a very wide variety of artists! Bell was especially great with groups – he helped more than a few really stretch out their wings and grow – but as you'll hear here, Thom also handled a fantastic range of music in Philly studios – all with magnificent touches that really set the tunes apart from the rest – French horns, harpsichord, and especially that twangy sitar sound that worked so well with a harmony ballad. The set's got 23 tracks in all, and a massive set of notes on the man and his music – with titles that include "What I See" by Three Degrees, "Here I Go Again" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "You've Been Untrue" by The Delfonics, "Moody Woman" by Jerry Butler, "Something For Nothing" by MFSB, "One Man Band" by Ronnie Dyson, "Close The Door" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Life Is A Song Worth Singing" by Johnny Mathis, "Look The Other Way" by Lesley Gore, "What Kind Of Lady" by Dee Dee Sharp, "It's The Same Old Love" by The Courtship, "Do You Remember Yesterday" by The Intruders, "Track Of The Cat" by Dionne Warwick, and "I Wanna Be A Free Girl" by Dusty Springfield.

VariousSweet Inspiration – The Songs Of Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A treasure trove of wonderful tunes – all written by the legendary southern soul team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham! The pair rarely entered the spotlight themselves, but contributed countless compositions that helped forge the sound of southern soul in the 60s – classic tunes that made the music of Memphis and Muscle Shoals even more mighty than anyone might have expected – thanks to a depth of feeling, sensitivity of emotion, and a trademark undercurrent of sadness that really helped the music set a new level at the time! This collection is the first to really do justice to the full range of the Penn/Oldham catalog – a beautiful batch of soul singles from a variety of different 60s labels – laid out back to back, in a breathtaking tapestry of soulful music. Titles include "Feed The Flame" by Ted Taylor, "Take Me" by Solomon Burke, "I'm Your Puppet" by Dionne Warwick, "Out Of Left Field" by Percy Sledge, "Cry Like A Baby" by Arthur Alexander, "It Tears Me Up" by Jeanne Newman, "I Met Her In Church" by Tony Borders, "I Need Someone" by The Wallace Brothers, "In The Same Old Way" by Arthur Conley, "Let It Happen" by James Carr, "Are You Never Coming Home" by Sandy Posey, and "I Worship The Ground You Walk On" by Etta James.

✨✧ KashifHelp Yourself To My Love – The Arista Anthology ... CD
Arista/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1980s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge legacy in soul music from Kashif – one of the greatest rising stars of the 80s scene, and an artist who really helped the music find a new direction at the time! By the time of these tracks, Kashif had already had a lot of experience writing for others – but on his own, he soars even further into the skies – as a mature, sophisticated artist who's able to get past straighter funk and club modes, but also avoid some of the more commercial soul music cliches of the time – with a timeless approach that's ensured that work like this has found a growing audience in the decades since it was recorded! Make no mistake, there's plenty of catchy tunes here – but there's also something special, too – as Kashif was never one to just make throwaway tracks, and instead always seemed to be working towards a greater role. The 2CD set brings together 30 of his best moments from the 80s – including some 12" mixes – and titles include "Stone Love", "I Just Gotta Have You", "Ooh Love", "Moving Song", "Condition Of The Heart (extended)", "Love Me All Over (extended)", "Love Changes (with Meli'sa Morgan)", "Step Into My World", "Love Letter Out Loud", "Kathryn (inst)", "Dancing In The Dark", "Movie Song", "Edgartown Groove", "The Mood", "All", "Ain't No Woman Like The One I Got (extended)", "I've Been Missing You", "Loving You Only (extended – with Doug E Fresh rap)", and "Reservations For Two (with Dionne Warwick)".

✨✧ Nancy WilsonNancy ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ VariousYesterday Has Gone – The Songs Of Teddy Randazzo ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really fantastic work from Teddy Randazzo – the man who put the "up" in uptown soul during the 60s – and who went on to a fantastic legacy of really great music in a variety of different styles! Teddy was always a real cut above the usual pop songwriter – as his songs were fuller, richer, and not afraid to bring some lush aspects to the production – yet always with a way that could still groove – clearly a key step on the path towards more sophisticated soul styles that others would pick up on strongly in the 70s! These tunes have a beautiful way of balancing emotion with a need to be catchy and groovy – all while avoiding modes that would sound way too overdone in the hands of other pop talents of the time – moving past the too-emotive or too-weepy styles that dominated the record racks a few years before. Most of the tracks here are soul singles, but there's also a few jazz and rock numbers too – all supported by the usual deep detailed notes that we love from Ace Records. Titles include "You Better Go" by Derek Martin, "I'm On The Outside" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, "Or Not At All" by Jimmy Rice, "Good For A Lifetime" by Al Hibbler, "Better Use Your Head" by Mel Torme, "Rain In My Heart" by Frank Sinatra, "Can't Stop Running Away" by Timi Yuro, "A Million To One" by The Manhattans, "Think Before You Act" by Tony Orlando, "Goin Out Of My Head" by Dionne Warwick, "Hurt So Bad" by The Delfonics, "I Watched You Slowly Slip Away" by Howard Guyton, "Think Twice Before You Walk Away" by Porgy & The Monarchs, "Baby Are You Puttin Me On" by The Royalettes, and "You Don't Need A Heart" by Teddy Randazzo himself.

✨✧ Barbara GryfeWhat The World Needs Now (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBC/Majik Bus (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sweet jazzy pop from Barbara Gryfe – a singer who not only works here on a rare album for the Canadian Broadcasting System, but who also sings a bit in Hebrew too! The production and presentation have a sweet late 60s style – a bit influenced by the Dionne Warwick/Burt Bacharach material on Scepter, but maybe also with some inspiration from some of the sunnier singers on the LA scene – slight soul currents in the backing, but a very blue-eyed style from Barbara overall. Titles include "People", "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", "Who Am I", "One Child", "Colours Of The Rainbow", "What The World Needs Now", and "If I Were A Rich Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
