I really didn't know what to expect when I purchased this album. I bought it mainly for nostalgia more than anything else but Dionne Warwick gives a clean, time honored performance on this album.

No one is going to sing the same at 70 years old as they did in their 20's but Dionne Warwick's voice, though now a bit deeper, still has a warm, soothing tonality to it. She can still pull off some high notes. I'm glad she's not retiring and I hope she continues to record as long as Tony Bennett.

Dionne Warwick's voice is finer with age. Beautiful songs sung as they should be in this remarkable retrospective. The new songs are an added treat. I would love to see an album done in collaboration with Ms. Warwick, Al Jarreau, George Benson, George Duke, Stanley Clarke, and Lenny White. But, I'm just dreamin'!

What can I say? Miss Warwick is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of being in the music industry and this album does that milestone and her legend justice. Each track displays her voice as warm and in control as ever. What beautiful orchestration as well. I would say Always Something to Remind me is actually an improvement on the original. Are you there with another girl has a maturity that just makes it seem better. A fresh reteaming with old collaborator Burt Bacharach produced, Love is the Answer and it's worthy of any of their best teamings. Another reteaming with a former collaborator in the form of Hal David, produced a hauntingly beautiful vidid piece that is possibly her best work in many years. The track Be Aware comes a little too close to one of those songs that veers way too close to being on the self righteous, beautifully sung though. Reach Out, I would say is an improvement on the original as well. Is there anybody out there, has many under and overtones to some of Miss Warwick's smoky numbers from the early 1980's, with that rich warm voice and tight phrasing. I just have to breath positively has a palpable feeling of regret of lost loves, relationships and loss. Once again the orchestration is beautiful and she brings every proper emotion to being resigned to a situation that has changed. A tearjerker, but a real winner. The love song It was almost like a song, is one that will hit a chord to anyone who has had a relationship that has ended and it still hurts. One gets the feeling Miss Warwick is singing from experience but of course she is a total pro so who knows? Make it easy on yourself is without a doubt an improvement lacking the overpowering background vocalsof the original. The ethos and the maturity and power she now has in her voice gives the song more substance.Read more ›

Miss Dionne Warwick is a excelente singer Always. The voice isn't the same.... is better to sing wonderful songs of wonderful times, I loved all songs in this album, but the best to me is "I just have to breathe"...thanks Miss Dionne, and God bless your voice.

I stumbled across this cd in July 2013 missing any hype for it's release to be aware of from 2012. If you ever liked Dionne buy it! It's a lovely album to hear in it's entirety and Dionne's song styling every bit as valid as it ever was to hear against current productions at the hands of genius. Timing alone to have this become a magnificent release to have had Phil Ramone and Hal David involved and the quality and artistry of such songs like 99 miles just a reminder of why everyone involved of legend status. Why our culture does not nurture the arts to allow industry support for our living legends to create and evolve with the wisdom of years and voice, I will never understand. I was concerned this a re-hash of old hits, but it is worth hearing such gems without the dated fashion of the times, but as compositions worthy of a superstar to muse new vocal nuances. Burt Baccarach should have every female singer worth their salt vying for his songs to interpret and legends like Dionne and the likes of Olivia Newton-John (who covered "Alfie" and "Anyone who had a heart" flawlessly with Phil Ramone on her Indigo album), Diana Ross, Joni Mitchell, Linda Rondstadt and even Pat Benatar and Debbie Harry who where great voices of their genre should have forever formats to create and not get lost to have their voices heard. My review a soapbox I know, but singers should sing....and their artistry a gift. I want more artistry and opportunity for art for our still valid vocalists....and buying their cds to support such efforts the way to let it known they are relevant to music lovers. 5 stars as it's an album fitting of a legend to be more about great first. Brava.

This is the voice, and the songs that got me through my youth, and my time in Viet Nam. I really had a crush on this lady. Listening to Dionne revisit these songs just brings it all back for me. A once in a lifetime singer, with a once in a lifetime voice. Glad I was able to enjoy it in my lifetime. Love it...

The four Bacharach and David songs she had not recorded before are terrific. I can not stop listening to her takes on Hal's "99 Miles to LA" and "It Was Almost Like A Song".

And her new takes on songs I have never heard her perform live like "I Just Have To Breathe" and "Be Aware" are deeply moving. They become quite something else from the perspective of a mature woman, IJHTB moves me now in a way it has never done before. So does "Make It Easy On Yourself".

All in all this album is a very worthy addition to her incredible catalogue.
