3.0 out of 5 stars Slim Sampler from Dionne's Last Label 27 Mar. 2010
By The Aeolian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a paltry compilation of Warwick's late stint at Arista Records from 1979-1995, well past the time of the signature Bacharach/David songs that made the singer and the songwriters famous.

This CD has a few true hits ("I'll Never Love This Way Again" [US Pop # 5, Grammy Award: Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female], "Heartbreaker" [US Pop # 10], "Love Power" [US Pop # 12]); a clutch of Adult Contemporary charters ("Deja Vu" [US AC # 1, Grammy Award: Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female], "After You" [US AC # 12], "All the Love in the World" [US AC # 16], "How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye" [US AC # 12], "Run to Me" [US AC # 12]). The rest is filler, some taken from albums: "Yours" (didn't chart at all), "Walk Away," "So Amazing" and "I Don't Need Another Love" (US R&B 84).

Warwick adopted two tactics in this late phase of her career in order to maintain a profile in the music business: duets (Luther Vandross, Barry Manilow, Jeffrey Osborne, and The Spinners are heard here) and collaborating with the Gibbs (four of the tracks in this compilation are Gibb, Gibb, Gibb compositions). Both of these moves were typical of the music business in the 1980s: Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder did a smash teaming; Barbra Streisand sought out the then-magic touch of the Gibbs, etc. Whether Warwick's performances along these lines constitute "Greatest Hits" is moot.

Oddly enough, Warwick's most successful collaboration from this period, "That's What Friends Are For," with friends Elton John, Gladys Knight and Stevie Wonder (what an ensemble!), isn't included in this compilation, possibly because of the intricacies of working out release rights from all those heavy hitters. For those who may have forgotten that moment in pop music history, "That's What Friends Are For" was a cover of a Burt Bacharach/Carol Bayer Sager song first performed by Rod Stewart for the film "Night Shift" (1982). The Warwick/John/Knight/Wonder version was released in 1985 as a charity single with the proceeds going to the American Foundation for AIDS Research. The single topped the charts in the USA and the UK, and went on to win the performers the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, as well as Song of the Year for its writers. Billboard magazine ranked it as the most popular song of 1986, and listed it at #61 in their 100 Greatest Songs of All Time. But you will have to find it elsewhere.

This should have been titled Dionne Warwick - The Last Hits.
