Song(s) of the Day # 789 Dionne Warwick

Dionne Warwick in the sixties was a singer quite apart. Bacharach and David helped of course. But she also had a sheer grace and certainty about her delivery that was a cut above those around her. Her hit singles are so embedded in general consciousness that it's worthwhile sometimes looking elsewhere. Towards b-sides and album tracks. Like these for example, three great tracks from 1968's The Valley of the Dolls.
