BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
Dionne recorded this dance/pop gem for her How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye album in 1983. It was produced by R&B mainstay Luther Vandross and really took Dionne out of her easy listening comfort zone. The single was released on Arista records and only charted in the US peaking at #45 R&B and #15 Dance in 1984.
As a sidenote, Jermaine Jackson would later do a cover of the b-side “Two Ships Passing In The Night” for his Don’t Take It Personal album.
