About this album

Dionne, Dionne Warwick’s Platinum-certified debut album for the Arista label, was released in 1979. It was recorded during the winter of 1978-1979 and was released late that spring. The LP was originally issued as number AB-4230 in the Arista Catalog. The disc stands as the biggest selling album of Dionne’s 50-plus year recording career, with 1.5 million copies sold in the United States alone. The album’s lead single was the track, “I’ll Never Love This Way Again” written by Richard Kerr and Will Jennings, and originally recorded by Cheryl Ladd.

The LP would then yield Warwick’s next big hit, “Deja Vu”. This song, written by Isaac Hayes and Adrienne Anderson, became one of Warwick’s signature songs. Other notable songs on the LP were “After You”, “In Your Eyes”, “The Letter”, and “Who, What, Where, When, Why”. The album was produced by Barry Manilow, who was paired with Warwick by Arista founder Clive Davis. Both of the above singles were Grammy winners the next year, and were certified gold records by the RIAA. The LP was Warwick’s first album to be certified platinum. The cover art for this LP features Warwick on a light background, in a fur stole. The album was a major critical and commercial success, her first successful album since the late 1960s.
