You weren't supposed to hear the struggle. At least that was the idea with most Motown artists during those breadbasket years of the '60s, post-J.F.K., pre-Tet, more AM than FM. The plan, as dreamed up by Motown's founder and the architect of its sound, Berry Gordy Jr., was not so much to make black music safe for a white audience but to make it

    More Details Hide Details After living in Los Angeles for a number of years, Warwick became a resident of Georgia in 1994.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1973
    Age 30
    In 1973, Warwick returned to Mercury but in 1974, she moved to Private Stock, where the 1975 single "Get Out of My Life" became her final charting (#73 R&B) song.

  • TWENTIES
  • 1970
    Age 27
    Warwick made her first recordings for Atco in February 1970, cutting four tunes with Townsend.
    More Details Hide Details In an early indication of the disarray, that Warwick's career would experience at Atlantic, these tracks were shelved and she was sent to Criteria Studios in Miami in April to work with producer Dave Crawford and fast-emerging studio band, The Dixie Flyers. The resultant Turning Around album yielded a Top Ten R&B hit with "She Didn't Know", but Warwick would never have another album release or single in the R&B Top 20. In October, she cut 10 tracks at Muscle Shoals, again with Crawford producing (along with Brad Shapiro). Only three singles were released with one, a remake of "Suspicious Minds", becoming Warwick's final R&B hit in 1971. That summer, Crawford and Shapiro produced an eight-track session for Warwick at the Pac-Three studios in Detroit. One track, "Everybody's Got to Believe in Something" was issued as a single - Warwick's last release on Atco despite two final sessions for the label in early 1972. Reflecting on her unrewarding Atco tenure, Warwick opined: "The problem was simply, that the company had a lot of other big female acts - like Aretha Franklin and Roberta Flack - and you get into a situation, where you don't get the right kind of material or production or promotion "
  • 1969
    Age 26
    Although her occasional success in the R&B field - notably the 1969 Ed Townsend production of Foolish Fool - was enough for the label wishing to re-sign her in 1970, she signed with Atco at the invitation of Atlantic Records president Jerry Wexler himself, Wexler having admired Warwick's early session work.

  • 1968
    Age 25
    Warwick had one sister, Dionne Warwick, and a brother, Mancel Jr., who was killed in an accident in 1968 at the age of 21..
    More Details Hide Details She was of African American, Native American, Brazilian and Dutch descent. Warwick graduated from East Orange High School in 1960. Dee Dee Warwick sang with her sister Dionne Warwick and their aunt Cissy Houston in the New Hope Baptist Church Choir in Newark, New Jersey: eventually the three women formed the gospel trio the Gospelaires, who often performed with the Drinkard Singers, Houston being a member of both groups. At a performance by the Gospelaires with the Drinkard Singers at the Apollo Theater in 1959, the Warwick sisters were recruited by a record producer for session work and Dionne and Dee Dee Warwick, along with Doris Troy, subsequently became a prolific New York City area session singing team.
  • 1966
    Age 23
    It was on the Mercury label in 1966, that she had her biggest hit with "I Want to Be with You" from the Broadway show Golden Boy, a #9 R&B hit, which just missed the pop Top 40 at #41 (Nancy Wilson had reached #54 with her version entitled "I Wanna Be with You" in 1964).
    More Details Hide Details The follow-up single was the original version of "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" which, peaking at #13 R&B and #88 Pop, was not Warwick's biggest hit, but became her best known number by virtue of its later success as a duet between Diana Ross and The Supremes and The Temptations. Warwick continued to record for Mercury through the late 60s.
