If you're at all a fan of Dionne Warwick or Burt Bacharach, get it while you can.

Only a few Dionne gems left to go now... Here I Am is one of my faves of her work, finding her moving gradually into her sophisticated pop phase.

This beautiful album is the lady at her best and demonstrates her chops and interpretive abilities.

When Rhino Records' specialty imprint, Rhino Handmade began releasing limited edition Dionne Warwick CDs of her 60s catalog, fans were thrilled. Deluxe packaging, copious notes, awesome sound, and TONS of extras. Well, they did about 4, promised more to come, and then... nothing. Little by little though, her rare out of print catalog has been trickling out.

Which brings us to the Collector's Choice batch, just out now. Pretty straight-forward, no frills or bonus tracks... but good sound and decent liner notes. Hey, I'm just happy they are putting more rarities in print. Only a few Dionne gems left to go now...

Here I Am is one of my faves of her work, finding her moving gradually into her sophisticated pop phase. There are lots of ballads, gentle bossa nova ditties and even a gospel-style track. The lyrics are clever, with a dark underside that belies the sunny melodies. Dionne finds the heart of those lyrics, elevating the precedings to art.

Although many dismiss her mid to late 60s era as easy-listening pop, I think it's incredible stuff. Dionne has the grit and soul to move you, no matter what style she sings in.

Dionne Warwick possessed one of the most beautiful pop voices of all time. Her soft soprano voice with the lilts and turns just drew me in like a bee to a blossom. Her voice was like a real breath of difference in a whole world of sameness. "In Between The Heartaches" begins this Dionne fest and the charm of her voice is seductive. You want to hear more. She is versatile and skilled as an interpreter of the beautiful Hal David Lyrics. She is the perfect match for the sometimes complicated melodies of Baccharach. Just when you think ya got the girl pegged she breaks the mold with her version of "This Little Light". Dionne reminds the listener of her gospel roots and her familial association with the fabulous Drinkard Singers. This offering alone would give no indication of her diverse sound on the other cuts. In fact, the song immediately following the gospel number is remarkably different in tone and character and Dionne fills the bill expertly.
Dionne Warwick deserves more regnigtion for her singular contribution to American Pop Music. Before Diana and The Supremes captured the hearts of young America, before Aretha made the world listen and respect her, there was Dionne. This CD helps substantiate her place in musical history. Love every moment.

When historians look back at the career of Dionne Warwick they will write that she was the cross between the legendary jazz ladies of yore and the pop/r&b divas of today. Dionne, along with Gladys Knight, Diana Ross/Supremes, and Aretha Franklin changed the way we view music and constructed the female vocal bridge into the 60's and beyond. These ladies brought their distinctive style to new their recordings as well as those they covered. They did not attempt sound like as some of the ladies of today and as a result created magic more often than not. Dionne with her beautiful tenor, class, diction, and coolness, had a great impact upon many singers for which she is not given credit. For many people she was far more effective live, where she would take her sometimes pristine recordings and knock them out of the ballpark.

This beautiful album is the lady at her best and demonstrates her chops and interpretive abilities. The album is gorgeously orchestrated and produced with Here I Am and Are you There With Another Girl being wonderful examples of the Warwick magic. A must have for the collector.

I have been a devoted fan of the masterful songs and arrangements of Burt Bacharach for years, and especially the timeless songs and arrangements he did for Dionne Warwick in the 1960's. Needless to say, when the Rhino "Look of Love" box set came out, I snatched it up, and practically wore it out listening and re-listening to this very day. I even snatched up the import version of "The Look of Love" box set, with its bonus CD of more wonderful Dionne Warwick/Burt original 1960's arrangements and recordings. Needless to say, my thirst for classic Dionne/Burt song works led me to seek out the original 1960's albums on CD, and that leads us to this release. There is arguably no more perfect paring of songwriter and singer in the entire world as is represented by the "Here I Am" album. Not only is just about every track timeless, amazing and will take your breath away, note how unbelievably adventurous, groundbreaking and (dare I use the word) dangerous the confidence is on this album. Aside from all the famous songs that this release contains, it is actually the lesser-known Bacharach classics that impress just as powerfully---the first time I heard "Looking With My Eyes", I couldn't believe what I was hearing: the ghostly intro, the chugging brushes on the snare drum, the tantalizingly unusual chord changes and tonal shifts---this was music light years ahead of its time, and also transcends the "lounge" tag that Bacharach '60's music has been labelled with for the last few decades--this is just AMAZING MUSIC, period. So it literally aches my own heart and soul to have to put in a review warning folks not to purchase this masterful album, because the REMASTERING IS HORRIBLE!

As wonderful as this work of musical art is, I cannot imagine a worse remastering job in my life.
