Editorial Reviews

Product Description

24 of the '60s pop-soul hits that sent Dionne (and those heavenly Bacharach-David songs) soaring up the charts. Includes Anyone Who Had a Heart; Walk On By; Message to Michael; Theme from Valley of the Dolls; I Say a Little Prayer; Do You Know the Way to San Jose; I'll Never Fall in Love Again; Alfie; The April Fools , and more!

Amazon.com

Dionne Warwick's vocals were never more strong, more vulnerable than when she sang the songs of Burt Bacharach and Hal David--and, oh, yeah, "Who Can I Turn To" and the theme from "Valley of the Dolls," the two non-Bacharach/David songs included among the 24 singles collected here. Both technically and emotionally, this was an unstoppable team: from the drama of "Don't Make Me Over" to the tongue-in-cheek backing singers on "Are You There (With Another Girl)," the barely veiled civil-rights message of "Reach Out for Me" to the deceptively bouncy "Do You Know the Way to San Jose," this CD sheds light on one of the most perfect marriages of pop form and content this side of Sinatra's classic Capitol work. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars so beautiful November 21, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I have always been a great admirer of artists like James Taylor, The Carpenters, Carly Simon, Roberta Flack, and others, but I had never really been exposed to Dionne Warwick's earlier music (with the exceptions of songs like Walk On By, Say A Little Prayer, and I'll Never Fall In Love Again) until a desire to own a recording of Walk On By lead me to purchase this greatest hits CD. I didn't really have any expectations of this CD beyond the few songs that I knew I liked, but after listening to it just a couple a times, I was quite overwhelmed by it's significance and sheer beauty. I can say easily that this collection of music ranks among the best I have ever heard, and this includes the artists whom I mentioned above as well as others. I wonder that there may be others who are as unaware of this special music as I have been. Rarely have I had the great pleasure and honor to experience such beautiful expressions of romantic love and sorrow: Burt Bacharach and Hal David are poets of the human heart, and Dionne their voice. The music they've produced is unique, and at times, crushingly beautiful, and at times, breathtaking.

4.0 out of 5 stars I bought it - - and I'd buy it again December 20, 1999
By Shawn
Format:Audio CD
This is a comprehensive double-CD collection of Dionne's AM radio hits from the 60's. I just as strongly recommend Dionne as the foremost interpreter of Burt Bachrach's music.
The sound quality is great. Rhino Records did a nice job, in this area, and the liner notes provide a good bit of information. Dionne's performances of these songs are flawless. She has great range and feeling, as well as subtlety and restraint. "Windows of the World," for example, sends a shiver up my spine. The hasty "San Jose'" is also a treat. The quantity of music presented is more than enough; you won't hear any 60's Warwick song on the radio not presented here, although this results in some unevenness. Burt Bachrach's composition is super.
I couldn't give it 5 stars because some of the musical arrangements don't hold up well, and probably sounded schlocky when they came out, even over the tinny radio speaker of a 1966 Ford Fairlane on its way to San Jose. But you know that going in. Lyricyst Hal David was most effective when he kept it spare and light ("Walk On By"), not when he tried to communicate socially "relevant" ideas (e.g. - "Message to Michael" - mobile society; "Windows of the World" - Vietnam). Not every song on the collection is to my taste. It's hard to find enough great material to fill a double greatest hits album, but most of this is quite good. Anyone who likes Dionne's 60's radio hits or needs a comprehensive sampling of Bachrach-David at their creative peak, should look here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dionne's Finest May 22, 2002
By Marc200
Format:Audio CD
This CD has a hefty price tag but it's well worth it because it is the best single-disc compilation of Dionne's early work. It includes her renderings of the best known compositions from the Bacharach/David songbook including "Walk On By", "Anyone Who Had A Heart", "I Say A Little Prayer" and "Alfie". It also includes some wonderful near-miss hit singles like the exquisite "Looking With My Eyes", on which Dionne punctuates her delicate pop phrasing with some gospel shouting. "April Fools" showcases Dionne's interpretive gift -- the rare singer whose voice caresses both the melody and the lyric. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Her most comprehensive collection... June 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic collection of Dionne Warwick's songs from 1962-1971, showcasing not only her distinct voice, but also the creative collaborations of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. The CD illustrates the tremendous bond that lied between Warwick's vocal styling, and Bacharach and David's songs. The highlights include "Don't Make Me Over," "Anyone Who Had A Heart," "Walk On By," and "I Say A Little Prayer." The album is quite lengthy (24 tracks), including a few mediocre numbers here and there. That's why it earns four stars, rather than five. However, the album is a perfect illustration of a matching of a great voice with great music. This album is an excellent introduction for the younger generations who might have only been exposed to her sub-par eighties work. This album is essential to any collection of sixties music, as well as any collection of popular music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop Perfection January 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Whoever it was that pointed out, "Man cannot live by bread alone," certainly had a nice flair for aphorisms. Even the most demented audiophile, subsisting on a diet of Blue Cheer, Albert Ayler, Vanilla Fudge, and Sun Ra; occasionally feels a strange desire to be soothed by something that is, for want of a better word, nice. The demented audiophile must be careful at such moments, lest the pendulum swing horribly far to the opposite extreme. For example, many demented audiophiles have been banned from the best jazz clubs for life simply because they let it slip that, in moments of weakness, they played something by Barbra Streisand and actually enjoyed it.

The horror!

Fortunately for the demented audiophile, this Greatest Hits of Dionne Warwick is readily available. This CD is pop perfection, the synergy of Burt Bacharach, Hal David, and Dionne Warwick is breathtaking. If you're lucky enough to have been raised on these classics cranking out of car radios, you'll be thrilled to hear them in their full acoustic glory - the sound quality is crystalline. Most noticeable is how good the arrangements are, and how disciplined. These songs were composed and recorded in an era when it was fashionable to goop up good music with massive banks of intrusive strings, pouring down like waterfalls of molten Velveeta cheese and smothering the quality. Considering this is pop fare - aimed squarely at the Top 40 - (remember that?) - the arrangements are wonderfully subdued, they actually enhance the beauty.

As to Ms. Warwick; a very soulful, emotional singer able to evoke feeling from the smallest lilt and a nicely turned phrase. A subtle, brilliant talent. I don't think I could ever hear Walk On By or You'll Never Get To Heaven too many times.
