Dinah Washington: A Rockin' Good Way - Juke Box Pearls (CD)

​1-CD Digipak with 36-page booklet, 29 tracks. Total playing time about 77 minutes. 

Dinah Washington was not only called 'The Queen', she simply was 'The Queen'. 
Her incredibly powerful voice, which is unparalleled, obliges us to include her in the 'Juke Box Pearls' series!
With a total of 29 sound clips dating from 1947-1962 we show the complete stylistic range of this great artist!
On this very personal selection - mostly up-tempo numbers and brilliantly arranged pop - you will find rarities and greatest hits.
Among them her smash hits What A Diff'rence A Day Made (she sang makes instead of made), September In The Rain, Mad About The Boy as well as the two duets with Brook Benton: A Rockin' Good Way and Baby (You Got What It Takes)!
Rarities such as the hard-to-find Mercury single Honky Tonky, which was released in 1958 under the pseudonym 'The Queen', are also included.                                                                       
With this 'Juke Box Pearls' edition of the great Dinah Washington we are erecting a small but fine memorial.                                                                                         
The 36-page color booklet contains her biography, written by the famous Chicago music journalist Bill Dahl, as well as many photos and memorabilia, some of them rare!

A review of Dinah Washington's career
This compilation of 29 songs does not follow a chronological order, but it outlines the great career of the artist, who died far too early. It is impressive how her voice has developed over the course of two decades, from the jazz-soaked Rhythm & Blues of the late 1940s and early 1950s, when Dinah Washington was just one singer among many, to the great monumental pop arrangements and jazz standards of the later years with an enormous flexibility of her voice!

A Rockin' Good Way
Dinah Washington's greatest hits are all there, including the title song she sang with Brook Benton. Many will also remember A Rockin' Good Way in the cover version of Shakin' Stevens with Bonnie Tyler from the 1980s, as well as Mad About The Boy from Levi's Jeans TV commercial around the same time. Not only nostalgics and collectors will get their money's worth here, because if you're into powerful female voices, Dinah Washington is always the right choice - and young girls who dream of a singing career should also listen to this CD!

What A Diff'rence A Day Makes

Dinah Washington

What A Diff'rence A Day Makes

(G“Dinah was the reason they wanted me to take over Mercury’s New York office,” said Clyde Otis. “They introduced me to her, and I said, 'I respect what you do so much, I'm afraid to even suggest a change in direction, but I have this idea for you to do “What A Diff'rence A Day Makes.” Have you ever heard it?' She said she had, and she asked me if I wrote it [Otis’ predilection for his own songs was legendary in the business]. I said I hadn't, but I told her if she recorded it, it could be very successful for her. She said, 'You do huh, motherfucker.' That was how she talked. She said, 'I'll give you one take, motherfucker.' I knew she meant one take, too. On the session, she was getting her shit together in the bathroom, and I told Belford Hendricks the arranger to get all the kinks out of the arrangement. She came back, she said. 'Ready?' One take, and we got it.

I went to a product meeting [at Mercury HQ] in Chicago, and played them ‘What A Diff'rence.’ They hated it. Meantime, Arnold Shaw [professional manager at the music publisher E.B. Marks] heard it and thought it was a monster. Arnold said, 'I'll take this song on the road, and I believe we can get the dee-jays to support it.' He went out three months, and when he came back it was a hit.”  In his book, Honkers And Shouters, Shaw adds that he actually brought the song to Otis. “When I suggested to Mercury executives that Dinah could sell pop, they patted me on the head and told me not to waste my company’s promotional budget,” wrote Shaw. “I was so excited when Clyde Otis cut [the song] that even though field promotion was the province of other members of staff, I went on the road. I spent nine weeks visiting disc-jockeys. Not R&B, but pop.”  

Dinah changed the song’s tense. Originally written in Spanish circa 1934 by Maria Grever as Cuando Vuelva A Tu Lado, it was rendered into English that year by veteran Broadway tunesmith Stanley Adams as What A Diff’rence A Day MADE. It hadn’t been an especially big hit in 1934, although it was interpolated into the 1955 Kirk Douglas movie, 'The Racer'. In 1959, it became Dinah’s first pop hit of the rock ‘n’ roll era, and it was, by any criterion, an exquisite performance. In 1975, Esther Phillips took what was essentially Dinah and Belford Hendricks’ arrangement of the song back into the pop Top 20. By then, Dinah was twelve years dead.

Press and Reviews
Press Archive - Dinah Washington A Rockin' Good Way - Juke Box Pearls - Keys and Chords
Press Archive - Dinah Washington A Rockin' Good Way - Juke Box Pearls - Keys and Chords In her short life, she was born on 29 August 1924 and already died on 14 December 1963, Dinah Washington became 'The Queen' as she was often called. In the late forties and early fifties she was one of many jazz-inspired rhythm & blues singers, then she later turned out to be a top singer. With her powerful and flexible voice she sang jazz standards and pop songs with sublime arrangements into eternity. Her 'A Rockin' Good Way' in the 'Juke Box Pearls' series is a hit. All her great successes are on this. From the start she has been a hit with the title track, which she canned together with Brook Benton. Also 'Baby, You've Got What It Takes' that the duo recorded, is on this album. By the way, 'A Rockin' Good Way' was covered in the 60's by Shakin' Stevens together with Bonnie Tyler. Also 'Mad About The Boy' that was used in a TV commercial for Levi's jeans can be found on this collector, as well as all the great successes of this monumental artist. What A Diff'rence A Day Makes', 'September In The Rain', 'Smoke Gets In Your Eyes', 'Such A Night' and 'Unforgettable' are all part of this album. You will also find some extremely rare and hard to find recordings of Dinah. This certainly applies to her Mercury single 'Honky Tonky' from 1959, which she recorded as The Queen.

Press Archive - Dinah Washington A Rockin' Good Way - Juke Box Pearls - Keys and Chords
Press Archive - Dinah Washington A Rockin' Good Way - Juke Box Pearls - Keys and Chords In ihrem kurzen Leben, sie wurde am 29. August 1924 geboren und starb bereits am 14. Dezember 1963, wurde Dinah Washington "The Queen", wie sie oft genannt wurde. In den späten vierziger und frühen fünfziger Jahren war sie eine von vielen jazz-inspirierten Rhythm & Blues-Sängerinnen, später entpuppte sie sich dann als Top-Sängerin. Mit ihrer kraftvollen und flexiblen Stimme sang sie Jazz-Standards und Popsongs mit sublimen Arrangements bis in die Ewigkeit. Ihr 'A Rockin' Good Way' in der Serie 'Juke Box Pearls' ist ein Hit. Alle ihre großen Erfolge sind darauf zurückzuführen. Von Anfang an war sie ein Hit mit dem Titeltrack, den sie zusammen mit Brook Benton einfing. Auch "Baby, You've Got What It Takes", das das Duo aufgenommen hat, ist auf diesem Album zu hören. Übrigens wurde 'A Rockin' Good Way' in den 60er Jahren von Shakin' Stevens zusammen mit Bonnie Tyler behandelt. Auch 'Mad About The Boy', das in einem TV-Spot für Levi's Jeans verwendet wurde, ist auf diesem Sammler zu finden, ebenso wie alle großen Erfolge dieses monumentalen Künstlers. What A Diff'rence A Day Makes", "September In The Rain", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "Such A Night" und "Unforgettable" sind alle Teil dieses Albums. Sie werden auch einige äußerst seltene und schwer zu findende Aufnahmen von Dinah finden. Dies gilt sicherlich für ihre Mercury-Single "Honky Tonky" von 1959, die sie als "The Queen" aufnahm.

Press Archive - Dinah Washington A Rockin' Good Way - Juke Box Pearls - Now Dig This
Press Archive - Dinah Washington A Rockin' Good Way - Juke Box Pearls - Now Dig This Dinah Washington was one of those divas of the '50s who made her reputation with her treat-ments of standards from the songbooks of giants of an earlier age. Like Ella Fitzgerald and Helen Humes, she had a high voice and could tackle anything from salty blues through to string-laden plush pop in front of massive orchestras. Quite rightly. NDT readers will eschew those pop / "classy" numbers and seek out the more bluesy, more r&b (i.e. better) tracks, and there are some here. This CD includes recordings from 1947 through to 1961. and all come from her time at Mercury Records.

Press Archive - Dinah Washington A Rockin' Good Way - Juke Box Pearls - Blues News
Press Archive - Dinah Washington A Rockin' Good Way - Juke Box Pearls - Blues News Dinah Washington Juke Box Pearls — A Rockin' Good Way (Bear Family, 76:43) An sich müsste man dieser CD zwei Sternewertungen geben —zwei für reine Bluesfans und volle sechs für Hörer, die R&B, Jazz und Pop gleichermaßen schätzen. Wie im Artikel weiter vorne im Heft beschrieben, entwickelte sich Dinah Washington stilistisch von ihren R&B-Anfängen zu einer Jazz-. Pop- und Balladensängerin, deren exquisiter Gesang zumeist von einem großen Orchester inklusive Streichern begleitet wurde. Diese CD in Bear Familys ,,Juke Box Pearls"-Serie enthält zwar nur Mercury-Material, aber da Washington von 1946 bis 1961 bei diesem Label war, werden alle ihre Facetten abgedeckt. Sechs Titel aus ihrer frühen R&B-Phase sind vertreten und auch später nahm Washington noch bluesige Sachen auf (darunter mit ,,Honky Tonky` einen Titel, der 1957 unter dem Pseu-donym „The Queen" erschien), aber der Fokus liegt auf ihren großen Erfolgen wie „What A Diff'rence A Day Makes", „Unfor-gettable" und den beiden Duetten mit Brook Benton. Sound und Aufmachung (Digipak mit 35-seitigem Booklet mit vielen Fotos und ausführlichem Text von Bill Dahl) sind exzellent, sodass dies sicher der beste Überblick über die vielschichtige Karriere der großen Diva ist.
