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! 
Included is a 36-page booklet in color with a Dinah Washington biography, written by the great Chicago music journalist Bill Dahl, and many photographs and illustrations, some of them rare!

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.
