Album of the Day
Though not as famous as her older sister Dionne, Dee Dee Warwick made some wonderful R&B records of her own in a career spanning more than two decades. Following a stint on Mercury, Dee Dee signed with Atlantic Records in 1970 and over the next two years cut the 35 tracks heard on THE COMPLETE ATCO RECORDINGS. The double-disc collection includes Warwick's superb TURNING AROUND in its entirety; recorded at Miami's Criteria Studios with producer Dave Crawford, the album is highlighted by Grammy-nominated R&B hit “She Didn't Know (She Kept On Talking).” Along with non-LP singles and compilation-only tracks, the set includes a dozen previously unreleased sides that further underline Dee Dee's strength as a soul singer. With terrific remastered sound, THE COMPLETE ATCO RECORDINGS showcases a talent that shouldn't stand in anyone's shadow.
