May 24, 1999

It’s been forever since I updated this page, but thankfully the river of Burtformation has kept flowing through the forum.

Thanks to everyone who has posted news there in the past six months. A few items of business: First of all, Happy Birthday to Burt! On May 12, Burt turned 70, a fact we here at A House Is Not A Homepage are (almost) sure of thanks to the firsthand research of forum contributor Robert H. de La Garza.

The theatrically named Nando van Kleeff recently submitted this fabulously hip photo of Burt along with a RealAudio file of Burt and Noel Gallagher’s rendition of “This Guy’s In Love with You.”. Thanks!

Bill Minnick wrote to report three upcoming Burt releases: The Reel (movie music) on Hip-O, June 22; 20th Century Masters/The Millennium Collection on UMG/A&M, July 13; and the long-awaited Promises, Promises OST on Rykodisc, July 13.

And finally, I’m still trying to get an official word on Burt’s summer appearances, but as of right now the only two dates I know of are the ones listed on the Ticketmaster site, Atlanta July 10 and Detroit July 11. Chech out for details.
