Rounding out the performer lineup thus far: K. Michelle, Wale, Kem, Chrisette
Michelle, Eric Benét, Ronald Isley, Bobby Caldwell, Joss Stone and "American
Idol" season 12 winner Candice Glover. Notes Robinson, "I'm very

We Need To Go Back: The Unissued
Warner Bros. Masters by Dionne Warwick

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dionne Warwick was a force in
pop music for several decades; selling tens-of-millions of albums and singles.
Her career can be divided into three parts; her time with the Scepter label
(1963-1970), the WB label (1972-1977), and the Arista label (1979-1994). Her Warner
Brothers period was more obscure. Now Real Gone Music has gathered together 19
unreleased tracks from recently discovered master tapes.

 

Fans of Dionne Warwick will be
delighted with the release of We Need To Go Back: The Unissued Warner Bros.
Masters.
On the other hand, many times unreleased tracks were unreleased
for a reason, which means the average music fan of her era may want to pass and
stick with her better known material.

 

She recorded dozens of tracks by
Burt Bacharach and Hal David while with Scepter but now Bacharach has some new
writing partners. Bacharach and Bobby Russell provide “And Then You Know What
He Did” and “Plastic City” and he teams with Neil Simon on “And Then He Walked
Through The Door.”

 

Five tracks are from her
unreleased country album. Highlights are “Rest You Love On Me” by Barry Gibb,
“I’ll Never Make It Easy” by Connie Van Dyke, and “Keep Me Warm” by Linda
Hargrove.

 

No matter what the material,
Warwick is a pure pop artist. Her voice can soar plus bring out the nuances of
a song as she creates varied textures. The material may not be the best she has
ever worked with but her voice is at the height of her powers.

 

We Need To Go Back: The
Unissued Warner Brothers Masters
is not
the place to start when exploring the legacy of Dionne Warwick but fills in a
number of gaps in the career of one of pop music’s masters.

 

 

 

 

AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 2, 2010! "My Life as I See It" an autobiography coauthored with David Freedman Wooley.

Grammy Award-Winning Music Legend Dionne Warwick Earns Humanitarian Award

 

 

 

 

 

 

Legendary singer and actress Dionne Warwick unveiled a new technology lab
that includes HP desktops, notebooks and camcorders at the Dionne Warwick
Institute. HP surprised Warwick and the school with its latest product designed
specifically for elementary school students, the HP Mini 100e PCs, customized
with the school logo.

 

 

EAST ORANGE, N.J. — Kicking off the new school year, legendary singer and
actress Dionne Warwick unveiled a new technology lab that includes HP (NYSE:HPQ) camcorders and desktop and notebook PCs loaded with education software at the Dionne Warwick Institute of Economics and Entrepreneurship.

East Orange, N.J., city and school district officials joined the students in
welcoming Warwick as she addressed the school on the importance of technology in
education and unlocking student potential.

“HP has been at the forefront of providing computers and setting up
state-of-the-art computer labs for schools worldwide,” said Warwick. “I am proud
to say they have thought enough of my ‘babies’ at the Dionne Warwick Institute
to provide a complete computer lab furthering my children’s computer learning
skills in such an environment.”

From prekindergarten through fifth grade, students at Dionne Warwick
Institute are exposed to progressive themes in economics and entrepreneurship
that also incorporate elements of technology education. Students will use the
new HP Compaq 6000 Pro All-in-One Business PCs featuring Adobe® Digital School
Collection and Microsoft® Office 2010 to design creative ads, keep inventory
records, calculate profit and loss statements, compose business plans and
produce multimedia presentations.

By fifth grade, the students have developed and practiced the skills needed
to establish and run their own businesses. Three times a year, during the
school-hosted “Market Day,” students put their business plans into action and
showcase original handmade products to sell for profit.

“We’re grateful for the generous gift from Ms. Warwick and her business
partner, Dave Wooley, and are so appreciative of the relationship that they have
formed with HP,” said Gloria P. Watson, principal, Dionne Warwick Institute. “We
are excited to put these incredible tools to practice as we teach our students
about the real world of business. Our students are eager to learn and having the
latest technology will empower them to do amazing things.”

The technology education theme is infused throughout the school and includes
students’ daily use of the internet to learn real-life skills. This includes
accessing websites to practice depositing into bank accounts to track
investments, visiting a virtual school cafeteria to purchase food and calculate
a tip, comparing membership prices at a gym, and purchasing from the toy store,
where students calculate total costs and make change for payments.

As Warwick celebrates 50 years in show business, she also will release on
Nov. 2 her memoir, “My Life, as I See It,” coauthored with David Freedman Wooley
and written on her product of choice – an HP notebook.

HP and its partners Adobe, Atomic Learning and Microsoft collaborated with
Warwick to donate the following products to the school:
