4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By David R. Bishop VINE VOICE on 4 May 2008
Format: Audio CD
I decided to review a Dionne Warwick compilation. I looked for one that was a double, and covered the Bacharach years of the 60s, the Warner years of the 70s and the Arista years of the 80s and beyond. I could not find such a compilation! In spite of all the albums available, there could be a gap in the market! A double is more than justified to get beyond the well known songs of the whole career of this recording legend.

This one covers the 60s and 70s, but the Arista stuff ('Heartbreaker', 'That's What Friends Are For' etc) is missing. Nevertheless, in conjunction with a disc of that music, this compilation will give you the hits, and a bit of depth from this icon.

The Sceptor years of the 60s, cover 34 of the 40 tracks here. That ratio is about right. When Dionne sings those Burt Bacharach/Hal David songs, it is one of those rare moments in life when everything was in the right place. You pull on the door and it opens into a world of magic. The casual listener could be forgiven for not realising how many of these numbers are Dionne Warwick originals. So many artists covered these songs and had hits with them. To my ears, few equalled Dionne's versions of these songs (maybe Aretha, Gladys, Luther and Dusty managed it). It is difficult to pick out favoites, as they are all so good. If you press me I'll rate 'Are You There With Another Girl' as my fave, but it could change tomorrow.

Dionne makes these songs seem easy, but try one at karioke, and you will soon realise that they are not! Dionne and the team made them appear easy listening, but they are deceptively complex, and pleasing on different levels.

After the success of the 60s, the Warner years were an anti-climax, but do not write them off.

There have been so many compilations of dionne's work over the past few years but this one is truly the Best as it, not only includes everything you ever heard and danced to at your wedding but added gems like "April Fools" and "Track of the Cat" that only ever remained on vinyl. Buy this you won't be dissapointed, in fact if you're new you'll be amazed

When it comes to classic song-writers, Burt Bacharach and Hal David have to be near the top of the list. In the 1960s they redefined the sophisticated pop-soul market with their beautiful melodic compositions, and Dionne Warwick was the voice they chose to record their numbers. This 2 CD collection basically offers the singles released by this combination, then adds a few extras in - like Dionne's Memphis recording of "You"ve Lost That Loving Feeling" (a real R&B gem!), then the major singles from her Atlantic period in the 70s most of which are pleasant but merely adequate. The rest, though, is totally fabulous - one great and timeless song follows another, and you can drift away with the wonder of "Anyone Who Had A Heart", "Walk On By", "I Say A Little Prayer" and all the rest. A wonderful and essential part of anyone's collection. For real Dionne fans, you need to add a collection of her Arista years (e.g. Greatest Hits 1979-1990, though much better is the 3 CD Legends) and you have the cream of a very fine crop.

Granted, I only knew Dionne's voice from a song she did for the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful, then one day I heard her version of the classic "I Say A Little Prayer" and I found it very strangely performed (it was on the radio on a bus). After a couple of days it was still in my head so I decided to buy this cd among others because it looked like one that wasn't just produced in a second. The artwork is very good, and there are pictures and liner notes fot some background on Dionne.
I was captivated right away by "Don't Make Me Over" and her high voice. There were a lot of classic songs I already knew, and she performs them heavenly.
There are a lot of great songs here for my taste, and also some really hidious songs (lyrically, I mean) that I just don't get ("...Kentucky Bluebird, fly away..."???????????).
I soooooo adore "You've Lost That Loving Feeling", it's one if the best songs I ever heard. "Track Of The Cat" is also a small masterpiece in my opinion, and there's also another song, which sounds very different to the others, sounds a little 50s, "Make It Easy On Yourself". A delight.
If you don't know Dionne Warwick, this surely is the best cd to start with.

The Very Best Dionne Set You Could Own... 6 Jun. 2000
By W. Budris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I mainly purchased this CD set because of the rare inclusion of tracks from Dionne's Warner years during the 70's. This is the first CD release worldwide I am aware of that includes TRACK OF THE CAT, and this is the full album version from the album of of the same name. For those fans who never were able to obtain the two Austrialian CD's of JUST BEING MYSELF and THEN CAME YOU, some of those tracks are included here from those albums. The digital remastering done by Warner Germany is fabulous, as mostly all the songs have no hiss and sound better from many of their counterparts from around the world, including the US Rhino reissues. Another rare Scepter track included is ODDS AND ENDS, a personal favorite of non-album tracks. For a thorough overview of Dionne's 60's and 70's best in one collection, this is the one to own. It is worth the imported price.

Great Stuff! 3 Aug. 2004
By terroh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Dionne Warwick is one of those performers who has been around for so many years and has had so many hits, its impossible to find a compilation set with everything on it. (Why has no one put out a box set?) The fact that she's been on 3 labels complicates matters. This double CD is the best deal if you are looking for her early and middle career hits. I especially like this one as it has hard to find hits from her late 60's period like Odds and Ends, Paper Mache, Who's Gonna Love Me and Let Me Go To Him. Also covered is her middle Warner Bros. period which is also hard to find on her reissues. The Rhino compilation is also very good, but it ends too early. Pick up this and a best of her Arista years CD and you'll be all set. I know, its expensive, but Dionne is worth it! But if you only want one set of her Bacharach period and 70's hits, this is it!

Definitely definitive, at least for pre-'80s. 6 Jan. 2003
By "simnia" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great artist + great collection + great sound = 5 stars, no question. I'm a little confused as to why a collection made in the year 2000 with no indication about time range stops at the 1980s and therefore omits some nice '80s songs like "That's What Friends Are For" and "Déjà Vu," but since I was primarily interested in the 1960s-1970s, this album was absolutely unbeatable for me. In my opinion, this is the only Dionne Warwick pre-'80s greatest hits album worth owning: every other such album I could find was missing some songs I wanted. The songs appear to be in chronological order, and my favorites tended to be the active ones clustered at the end of the first CD, like "I Say A Little Prayer," "Do You Know The Way To San José," and the powerfully romantic "This Girl's In Love With You," derived from Bacharach's original "This Guy's In Love With You" (also good). The included booklet has some interesting history, though I was a tiny bit disappointed that the year of release and maybe peak chart position wasn't always shown for each song.

Poignance and Poise 8 Nov. 2007
By Barrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
At first, Dionne Warwicke's recording persona was as vulnerable as a baby bird. In the course of a song -- particularly her great Burt Bacharach/Hal David hits -- she seemed to be transformed by love (or its loss) from a woman-child into a wiser, deeper soul. Combined with Bacharach's sophisticated chord progressions and David's plaintive but articulate lyrics, she projected a mixture of poignance and poise that still makes our hearts go right to her, almost protectively. Even the imperative "Don't Make Me Over", her breakthrough number, is actually a plea for mercy.

This compilation is the obvious go-to option for anyone who wants more than a cursory overview of Warwicke's great period (roughly 1962-68) without investing in every album. (Still, the Sequel twofer "Presenting.../Anyone Who Had a Heart", now out of print, is worth seeking out.) All of the classic hits are here, sparklingly remastered. The only drawback is that in its sweep, the set documents in some detail the creeping divahood that enervated most of Warwicke's '70s output, and would leave her calcified in the '80s (a period the set avoids).

Her near-strident attack on "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" is a surprise (though it's arguably wasted effort; the song is as owned by its originators as any in pop), and producer Thom Bell coaxed a truly superb performance from her on the Spinners duet "Then Came You." Or maybe her duet partner, the punchy Phillippe Wynn, provided the spark: Warwicke swoops, she swings, she damn near makes the pro forma song a gospel rave. Elsewhere she's mostly cushioned in arrangements we now tag as "lounge", and lounging. But these caveats are no reason to pass up this set. Buy it, and enjoy the eternal moments that preceded a fine singer's vanishing act.

The finest Warwick Collection to date!!! 27 Dec. 2010
By David D. Macks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was driving in a friends ride when I heard a CD of songs by Dionne Warwick. I enjoyed that disk immensely but realized rather quickly that some great early songs by her were missing. I went online and began scouring the Amazon and others for The Definitive Dionne Warwick Collection and folks, let me tell you that this one is IT! Most if not all of the good stuff is here. Combine with with the Bacharach Box Set and you're golden. Her voice, so unique, so poignant so beautiful. No she's NOT Aretha or Gladys or anyone else.... she's simply Dionne. I god this box set and listened to it straight through about 5 times in a row. If you love this woman and her music, this is simply the collection to buy.

Da Worfster

Errr Revision time. I bought this collection thinking that it was all I needed and "all that"! Now that I've heard the Rhino and Japanese re-masters I can truly say how wrong I was! This import CD sounds fine till you stack it up against real remastering and you see just how BAD it sounds. I recently ripped all my CDs to my Hard Drive and Have been streaming them to my main 2 channel listening post in lossless. Sad to say this compilation does not hold up. I'm now buying all the individual Sceptre recordings. That's just the way it is. Could've saved myself some dosh on this one.
