Dionne Warwick signed to Arista in 1979. Her silky voice and smooth style were still very much intact and much in-demand among adult contemporary listeners. Her first song for her new label, "I'll Never Love This Way Again," was co-produced by new pal Barry Manilow and hit number one on the adult contemporary charts. Her next single, "Déjà Vu," did even better — as well as topping the adult contemporary chart, it hit number 20 on the pop chart. Both songs ended up winning Grammys and the Dionne album was the first platinum record of her storied career. Platinum & Gold Collection compiles 12 songs from the Arista years. Despite strangely leaving off one of her biggest hits, the aforementioned "Déjà Vu," it serves as a decent summary of her 1980s work. It includes some of her biggest pop hits, like 1982's Barry Gibb-written-and-produced "Heartbreaker," 1982's "Friends in Love," 1983's "How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye," and 1985's huge hit "That's What Friends Are For." The rest of the songs are serviceable pop songs, but nothing too special and certainly no patch on her work from the '60s.
One of the Greats
Dionne, you have given me many, many moments of shear joy just singing your songs and listening to long past hits again after a long time brings those memories right back. Not everyone can do this, over and over. Thank you.
Dionne - what happened to you?
Thought you were a legend, but now know you are just a legend in your own mind. Be nicer to your teamates on the apprentice. I for one will delete songs sung by you in my collection.
