I just received Rhino’s new The Very Best of Burt Bacharach. While I would definitely quibble with a few of the selections (why no “This Guy’s In Love With You”?), this affordable, 16-track distillation of The Look of Love: The Burt Bacharach Collection is an excellent introduction to Burt’s music for the quasi- or would-be fan and Patrick Milligan and Alec Cumming are to be saluted for

their typically meticulous work on the liner and production notes.
