Just Being Myself Dionne Warwicke - K46186 (2658)

£9.99

Product description

Vinyl: G+/G surface scratches but generally plays well despite one large scratch in particular that seemingly remains superficial
Sleeve: adhesive gone, but have included a plastic sleeve for your convenience

Classic Dionne, mint condition going for 30+ pounds so ahve reflected condition in a fair price for this listing.

From the arrangements, it is obvious that H-D-H held Dionne's work from the Bacaharach-David era in great respect. The songs frequently qoute many of Bacharach-David stylistic touches (listen to "I Always Get Caught in the Rain"). Yet H-D-H add a new dimension to the Warwick style by rooting the album in the post 60's Motown sound. In return Dionne sings at her most soulful, adult-themed songs backed by funky,and complex musical arrangements. The magic of H-D-H has always been their ability to communicate an epic sweep in 3-4 minutes and this remains true on all the songs on this album. "Just Being Myself" finds Dionne at the top of her game - a consumate professional. Given how much I love this record, it is odd for me to read reports where Ms. Warwick speaks disparagingly about this album and this period of her career -success with Warner Brothers records eluded her, and "Just Being Myself" produced no chart hits for her. I think time has vindacted this period of her career -- the music remains relevant and classic at once. Each decade from the 60's through to the 90's, Dionne's output was exemplary and this for me is the high point of her 70's era.
