Honey Confection of the Highest Order
Peter | East of Los Angeles | 02/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am floored everytime I hear the two rollin' pop hits by Dinah and Brook together ("You've Got What It Takes" and "Rockin' Good Way to Fall in Love")---this is pure pop heaven!! I just love rolling down the windows and blasting these two songs in my car on a summer day. Dinah and Brook seem to have really good chemistry together, that is, until you read what REALLY happened in the studio according to the liner notes, but they complement each other well on this CD. His mellow, smooth baritone just hits the spot in contrast to the emotional, dramatic vocals of Dinah. One wishes they had done more duets together. There are some nice individual songs by each on the CD. Dinah really tears at your heartstrings with her achy-breaky version of "Love Walked In". And if that's not enough to get the tear ducts workin', she lays it on with "There Goes My Heart"---a heartbreaker!! She does these songs in the emotional vein that only she knew how. Brook shines equally with his warm, honey-soaked voice. He really could've given Nat King Cole a run for his money. This is a must have for any Dinah Washington fan and you're in for a bonus to hear Brook as well if you haven't already."
One of truly great soul albums of the 60's

"In the summer of 1960 there was Brook and Dinah with their sweet, swinging soul duets "Baby, you've got what it takes" and "A rockin'good way" inching their way towards the #1 position occupied by Everly Brothers. Many of the records from that era sound dated today, but this album is immortal. Listen to Brook on "Call me", like honey poured over silk, it is. Or the two of them on "I do". Makes you wanna call that girl from long ago right away again. Buy this record, you won't regret it!"

"It is so wonderful to hear artists "click" when they record togather and to feel the experience of joy and happiness they emote.....THIS is what you get with this superb album....Listen to the banter between them on "You've got what it takes" and "That's a rockin good way" (at the end of this tune Dinah says to Brook as the song ends and they think the're off mike- "baby, you've got what it takes" and they both laugh loudly...the chemistry is heartwarming.....) Brook's "Someone to believe in.." and Dinah's "There goes my Heart" are just so good that I almost cry- You MUST have this LP if your a fan of R&B or either artist....just fantastic.....!!!!!!!"
