Customer Reviews

Cheap midi tracks

I think she sounds great after all these years, but the musical beds sound like pre-recorded tracks. So, it lacks a certain spontaneity.

Not Bad!

So I've been a fan of Dionne's for a LONG time and think she is fabulous. Given that she is over 70 years old and still recording is impressive in itself and OF COURSE her voice is lower and not as clear and sweet as it was in 1967, but that's ok. I also like that the arrangements of the familiar songs are just different enough to not sound like a tired cover. And some songs we are not familiar with sound good too. To honor her niece (Whitney) would have been nice to cover one of her songs. Is this destined to be a classic CD, no, but not bad Dionne, you're still doing what you love to do after 50 years!! Hope I can say when I reach 71

What's It All About, Dionne?

To say that I'm a fan is an understatement. I'm about 20 years younger than she is so she started her music career practically the year I was born. I wish this CD could have had more fanfare and been longer. I've heard her in concert years ago with Burt Bacharach and she was wonderful. I have seen her concert in Chicago singing a medley of her hits, many of them written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and she got more than one standing ovation and deserved them. I heard her last year at the NC State Fair and though she sings much lower, she still managed to wow the crowd and got more than one standing ovation for some of her signature songs like Alfie, I'll Never Love This Way Again, and others along with her talented son This brings us to this CD. Though smoking has taken it's toll on her voice, and she won't admit that, she still is very musical and since she is over 70, she has had many experiences in her life, she probably has a better understannding of the songs than when she was just starting out.. I like that she was able to get a few new songs on this CD written by Burt and the late, Hal David. I don't know that any will be a hit. I wish they would. I think her peak vocal abilities were in the eighties. Because time and smoke has made its mark, Dionne sings much lower and her higher register is gone, the songs suffer. This is not a bad album and though I've only heard snippets, I will buy it. I know that her lifetime fans will purchase it as well. However, I don't think that she will win any new fans unless they love the melodies and look back and listen to her earlier recordings. She is still touring the world with her very talented son and he makes an appearance on I Say a Little Prayer, as he did in concert. No doubt then when she is gone, she will leave the world with her great music. I hope that she and Burt get a Kennedy Center Honor before it's too late. Hal David and Burt and her should have gotten honors years ago. I agree with the other reviewer of this CD except to correct him and say that Whitney was not her niece, she was her cousin, but yes, maybe she could have done a duet, a la Natalie Cole/Nat King Cole style.

Biography

Born: December 12, 1940 in East Orange, NJ

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

It is easier to define Dionne Warwick by what she isn't rather than what she is. Although she grew up singing in church, she is not a gospel singer. Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan are clear influences, but she is not a jazz singer. R&B is also part of her background, but she is not really a soul singer, either, at least not in the sense that Aretha Franklin is. Sophisticated is a word often used to describe her musical approach and the music she sings, but she is not a singer of standards such...
