Dee Dee Warwick: Foolish Fool
From Foolish Fool (Mercury, 1969). Also on Best Of.
Damn, so many legends are passing (Dolemite, RIP!) right now.
Dee Dee Warwick’s one of those soul singers who had this incredible voice but never really got her due (unlike her more famous, younger sister Dionne). There’s actually interesting parallels (however loose) between Dee Dee/Dionne and Erma/Aretha Franklin. In any case though, soul music has lost yet another great one. You’ll be missed.
