Dionne's Voice is in Top Condition

"Dionne performs in a beautiful black floor length bangle beaded gown. The gown shimmers and glows as she gives a very lively and animated performance in Edmonton Canada. She sings songs that I have never heard her sing before and I'm a Dionne Warwick International Fan Club Member and have about 98% of all the albums she's ever recorded. She performs rare songs like Love to Love You Baby (Donna Summer's old Disco sultry song), The Way I Want to Touch You (Captain & Tenille), Have You Never Been Mellow (Olivia Newton John), Love Will Keep Us Together (Captain & Tenille), This Will Be (Natalie Cole), Get Down Tonight (KC and the Sunshine Band). Dionne dances and moves about on the sexy and funky songs like Love to Love You Baby, Get Down Tonight. She touches on her classics too.

Classics include Alfie, Don't make me over, windows of the world, message to michael, I'll never fall in love again. At the end of the concert Dionne brings the house down, I mean the girl burns the rafters up with a super charged version of Promises, Promises.

Vocally and muscially her voice is powerful medium ranged timbre (mezzo soprano range). She executes excellent crescendoes, calandoes, decrescendoes, perdendoes, with excellent pitch and volume. Vocally this is Dionne is top vocal form as she performed in 1977 backed by the impressive Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (before the cigarettes detroyed her voice).

If you didn't know, Dionne has been a heavy cigarette smoker for many, many years and today (in the 2007's its taken a toll on her voice). However, this rare treat from 1977 is the exception. I have never seen Dionne so animated, energized and lively as in this performance. This is Dionne performing as a young woman -- at the time of the concert she's 37 years old.

True Dionne Warwick fans -- this DVD is a must. You must own this DVD as it showcases the super gifted and rare quality of one of the world's premiere pop vocalist.My Point Of View
