DISCOGRAPHY

1967: I Want To Be With You / I'm Gonna Make You Love Me

Dee Dee Warwick: I’m Gonna Make You Love MeMercury. Credits: Horace Ott (Arranged By), Teacho Wiltshire (Arranged By, Conductor), Jimmy Wisner (Arranged By), Ed Townsend (Producer), Jerry Ross (Producer)

Around Tin Pan Alley today - and today that's a street that embraces almost every corner of the world - you hear a lot of talk about 'tell it like it is', 'soul', 'nitty-gritty' and 'where it's at'. Simply translated, it means - AU NATURALE. Singing with a feeling and a meaning and a sincerity that bespeaks an honest interpretation of a song and is presented by a singer truthfully and without electronic trappings, kitchen sink arrangements and vocal gymnastics.

It's precisely this quality that makes Dee Dee Warwick one of the most promising young singers to step before a microphone in a too long period. Her 'soul' quality is perhaps derived from the gospel heritage that saw her family perform as The Drinkard Singers - one of the most renowned gospel groups in the country... the first of their musical persuasion to appear at the Newport Jazz Festival.

Following years of backstage exposure to the family's ovation-filled performances, Dee Dee won easy acceptance at New York's many recording studios, singing background vocals for other performers recording sessions. Each day, each week saw a different personality at the mike, a different arranger and musical conductor with whom she had to work. A flexibility and a professionalism developed that has since proved to be an apprenticeship well spent.

Now, as a solo performer, she is in demand for clubs and theaters throughout the country, she has toured England to acclaim via the two title tunes of this album as well as through other of her Mercury recordings.

Listen. You'll hear it not only 'like it is' - but like it was meant to be! (The Original LP Notes)

1969: Foolish Fool

Dee Dee Warwick: I’m Gonna Make You Love Me

Mercury. Credits: Horace Ott (Arranged By), Jimmy Wisner (Arranged By), Joe Renzetti (Arranged By), Rene Hall (Arranged By), Peter Knight (Arranged By, Conductor), Ed Townsend (Producer), Gamble & Huff (Producer), Jerry Ross (Producer), John Franz (Producer), Lou Courtney (Producer)

It takes two to tango. It takes two to make a really great record especially when the Warwick sisters are recording. Foolish Fool paired one-time R&B artist Ed Townsend, who has turned songspinner-producer and the younger distaff member of the famed Warwick clan, Dee Dee. The state of New Jersey can take some of the credit for this one. Both Townsend and la Warwick reside there. But overall, it was a perfect melding. Proof of their teamwork is seen in the song-writing credits, where both contributed to provide the fine ballads. Dee Dee’s success is proof again of the adage that nothing beats hard work and resultant experience in gaining success.

Dee Dee starting singing at church, also began recording as a background singer. And, we see, that Dee Dee is carving that some solid niche in pop music that sister Dionne has etched. (The Original LP Notes)

1970: Turning Around

ATCO Records. Credits: Ann Moss (Backing Vocals), Cissy Houston (Backing Vocals), Jackie Verdell (Backing Vocals), Judy Clay (Backing Vocals), Jim Dickinson (Guitar, Piano), Tommy McClure (Bass), Sammy Creason (Drums), Charlie Freeman (Guitar), Michael Utley (Organ), Arif Mardin (Orchestrated By), Chuck Kirkpatrick (Engineer), Howard Albert (Engineer), Ron Albert (Engineer), Dave Crawford (Producer), Jimmy Douglass (Tracking By), Lew Hahn (Tracking By), Graffiteria (Artwork By), Joel Brodsky (Photography By)

Dee Dee Warwick has been turning out good records now for half a decade and she really hasn't received the acclaim she warrants. However, her new album, Turning Around, even tops anything she has ever recorded. It's particularly interesting and pleasing since it is also her first since joining Atlantic: "Working with such a good company as Atlantic is really satisfying", she told me over a somewhat echoing telephone line from her home in New Jersey. "They attack everything so professionally that nothing is left to chance. You can say that I'm very happy and thrilled to be recording for Atlantic." (John Abbey, Blues & Soul, December 1970)
