Dionne Warwick’s 1972-1977 singles for the Warner Bros. label not only feature a reteaming with Burt Bacharach and Hal David but also a host of other top-drawer collaborators, including former Motown kingpins Holland-Dozier-Holland, Philly soul king Thom Bell, R&B legend Jerry Ragovoy, West Coast pop-rock pioneer Steve Barri with multiple Grammy-winner Michael Omartian, and ace Gladys Knight & The Pips producer Joe Porter. Now, for the first-time ever, the “A” and “B” sides of all 21 of Warwick’s original Warner Brothers stereo single sides are brought together into an album—including such tracks that hit Billboard's Hot 100, R&B and Easy Listening charts as "Once You Hit The Road" and "If We Only Have Love." Although Dionne would leave Warners to achieve new triumphs with Arista Records in 1978, these long-buried gems—many of which have never been released on CD—reveal that her soulful pop sound and vision remained potent and true during the '70s. Paul Howes’ notes include quotes from Dionne herself that illuminate this overlooked period in her brilliant career
