Here I Am: Isley Meets Bacharach was released Tuesday by DreamWorks Records. This collection of Bacharach-David songs—newly arranged by Burt and sung by the great Ron Isley—has the timeless feel of an instant classic. I had the good fortune to attend Bacharach and Isley’s New York showcase performance Tuesday night, and I’ve posted a brief recap of the show and a gallery of images. My thanks go out to Linda Dozoretz, Allison Ravenscroft and Sue Main.
