5.0 out of 5 stars Definitve classics in best sound quality 10 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
Dionne's output from the 1960s has been re-released many many times (partly I recall due to doubtful copyright), but I have not heard it in such splendid audio quality as this. I know these songs inside out and I was picking out instruments and background arrangementts that I had never heard before. All Music Club Deluxe issues that I have purchased have great sound, and at a real bargain price.

The 1960's tracks speak for themselves - these songs will live on for generations, and although other artists may have had the British hits with most of these songs, they were mainly written for Dionne and these are the definitve versions.

Nice to get a good selection of her hard to find 1970s output too on CD2 as well.

There is minimal overlap with the same label's "All The Love in the World: The Dionne Warwock Collection" which covers her later period. Buy both sets for less than a 10 and you really do have the best of Dionne.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the true greats 2 Sep 2011
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Fortunately Dionne Warwick never had any ambitions to become a singer songwriter.Instead she became the most famous interpreter of the Burt Bacharach songbook recording his songs for years.
This double CD is the 2nd to be named The Essential...but this is a 42 tracker

4.0 out of 5 stars A Sweeping View of Warwick's Musical Output 5 Jan 2014
By L. Boki
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dionne, at the first quarter of her career, was blessed with the talents of writers/producers, Bacharach & David. The songs they composed were intelligent, almost Broadway-like in their stylings. It gave her a wealth of memorable songs to sing that dominate her stage repertoire today, some 40 years later. This compilation gives a fine representation of classics like, my personal favorite, "Walk on By", the sublime "Alfie" to the near Great White ways, "I'll Never Fall in Love Gain". Despite contributions from the master songwriter/producer, Thom Bell and the Supreme Motown scholars, Lamont Dozier and occasionally , the Holland Brothers, her 70s stint at Warner Bros were barren years. The brief resurgence under Clive Davis gave her a first #1 in the charitable quartet, "That's What Friends Are For" and her biggest international hit, "Heartbreaker" as her near 15 year ride with Arista concluded. A very good sampling of a splendid catalog of songs, that though not as stunning album-wise, is perfect for such a compilation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality... 17 Mar 2014

Great CD. 44 songs that send one shooting back to the 60s. The combination of Dionne's vocals laid on tracks arranged by David & Bacharach is timeless. Great to sit & listen to...
