Here I Am
, the fifth album by Dionne Warwick
, was recorded during the summer and fall of 1965 and released in December 1965 by Scepter Records
. The LP appeared as number 531 in the Scepter catalog, and was produced by Burt Bacharach
and Hal David
. This album, as was usually the case until 1968, was recorded at Bell Sound Studios in New York
The album's lead single, the title track "Here I Am", was featured in the film "What's New, Pussycat?
". Despite this, the single failed to make the Top 40
in the United States
. The follow-up, "Looking With My Eyes", was prominently featured on the dance show "Hullabaloo
", but did not make the chart either.
The third single from the album, "Are You There With Another Girl?" was released in December, 1965, and became a hit, making the Top 40.
Several early copies of the album had errors in the album cover, listing tracks such as "It's Love That Really Counts" that were not included on the album itself. Other notable songs featured on the album are the bouncy "Window Wishing", the hauntingly beautiful "If I Ever Make You Cry" and "This Little Light" which featured Warwick herself on the piano
