Dionne Warwick and Thom Bell: Hitting The Road Together

David Nathan, Blues & Soul, December 1975

WITHOUT ANY question, one of the most significant musical marriages of our decade was the one that brought the team of Dionne Warwick, Burt Bacharach and Hal David together to supply not only a string of hits for the lady but to establish a definitive, original and unique sound which has been frequently copied but never emulated. "We carved our own musical niche," is how Ms. Warwicke herself describes the impact that the outfit created.
