It opens with "No One In The World," which was released shortly before Anita Baker's version. Dionne's however, held it's own and remains one of the best covers of the song to date. Track # 2 "Without Your Love," has a great feel to it with nice harmony. It's the type of song you like to listen to while driving along the Paciffic Coast Highway in a convertible. The third track, one of my favorites, is a duet with Barry Manilow called "Run To Me,", which is simply brilliant in every sense of the word. Dionne's voice is powerful, melodic and blends perfectly with Barry's.
Tune # 4 "Finders of Lost Loves" was used for the televsion show with the same name by Aaron Spelling, and was#6 and #2 on the Billboard Charts for R&B and Pop respectively. This duet between Dionne and newcomer (at the time) Glen Jones was phenomenal. The song is packed with raw emotion and really good singing, with each singer complementing the other. Track #5 "Love Doesn't Live Here Anymore" is another favorite of mine. Dionne really belts this song out with such vocal dynamics, letting you know in no uncertain terms that you are listening to an accomplished vocalist.
"It's You" is a Stevie Wonder song that has Stevie's trademark of great harmony, wonderful words and terrific arrangement. There's no going wrong with this tune. Track # 7 "It's Love" is another work of art that clearly depicts a woman walking into a room and cathing everyone's eye as she falls in love with that special guy as soon as she sees him; great use of words and imagery.Read more ›
Most fans will be familiar with the original album. Its a real mish mash of styles with various producers trying to find Dionne a hit in 1985. "Run To Me" a duet with Barry Manilow was the only single to scrape into the UK singles chart although "Without Your Love" which was obviously heavily influenced by the "Heartbreaker" album should have been a hit. There are also two duets with Stevie Wonder taken from the "Woman in Red" soundtrack which had already made it to number 2 in the UK album charts just before this release.
The most interesting part of this release is the 2nd disc of unreleased material which is worth the purchase price alone. It starts off with "Broken Bottles" written by the Bee Gees and produced by Manilow. It's a very interesting track and leaves you wondering how it would have sounded with Barry Gibb as producer. Next comes "Dangerous" another outtake that is very mid 80's in sound - but again with a few adjustments had hit potential. The title track on the original version sounds rather pedestrian - but here with the great Luther Vandross duetting with Dionne the track takes on a new life. It really is outstanding and puts "How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye" in the shade. It leaves you wondering why this has not been released before? There is also a "Dionne Solo Version" with Luther on backing vocals! The alternate version of the excellent "No One In The World" is better than the original release and the same could be said about "Bedroom Eyes". The 7" inch single (remember them?) versions of Without Your Love, Run To Me and It's Love are also great and perfect for creating your own playlists.
This album (originally released in the UK as "Without Your Love"only made 86 in the UK Album Charts) has never been a favourite of mine, but CD2 of this version is up there with Dionne's most enjoyable albums.
Warwick sings of regret saying "Love Doesn't Live Here Anymore". With Grammy winner and Motown superstar Stevie Wonder is " It's You", penned by him. "It's Love", you already know. "Bedroom Eyes" and "Weakness" (again, with Stevie Wonder) are self explanatory for your dim all the lights moments. "You Made Me Want To Love Again" is a victory song for those of us who lose faith in love, unless it comes again. With Dionnè Warwick, it should not be a problem. (Arista/BMG)
