..... Nice to see you're still posting! ... Based upon all that I've heard about Hal David - I believe he was pretty much a "Golden Rule" kind of guy!

Re: latest news

... Totally understandable - Those of us in the 4th Quarter of life find ourselves in a similar situation (even the hassle of attending concerts can be a real challenge) - I've had the pleasure of attending many many Burt Bacharach as well as Dionne Warwick and joint Bacharach/Warwick Concerts over ...

Re: Is it possible to choose a fave Bacharach song?

geoff85: ... I agree with your analogy - can't pick a fave child! ... "Beginning of Loneliness" was the track that grabbed me when I purchased the Windows of the World album back in the mid 60's. ... Still love it along with so many other Bacharach gems. ... Most of my favorites are the recordings t...

Re: R.I.P. BJ Thomas

..... I believe that BJ was flattered by those who praised his ability to adeptly handle the complexities of Bacharach's Music. ... I vaguely recall a quote stating that he did not wish to become the "Male" version of Dionne Warwick at Scepter Records. ... He had other career goals! ... R.I.P.

Re: The Bell That Couldn't Jingle

Re: Dionne on tour

She's billed this as the last (one night here / next night there tour) ... Totally understandable ... Also claims she's NOT retiring! ... I think the mini-residency appearances at Caesar's Palace and Bally's Las Vegas this year are a great way for Dionne to continue performing without constantly fly...

You're absolutely right! ... Despite Carole's "thin vocals" - it remains one of my favorite albums. ... Saw them perform the entire album live at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles at the time of its release. ... A very special evening at a very intimate venue!

Re: R.I.P.—Doris Day

..... One could speculate endlessly on the posts above. ..... The one thing I am convinced of is that Jackie DeShannon is second only to Dionne as the best interpreter of Bacharach's unconventional compositions. She should have been Burt's "go to" choice after the bitter breakup of the Burt, Hal & D...

Re: New Version of What the World Needs Now by Dionne Warwick

Are you saying the version included on the new CD of "What The World Needs Now" was recorded 16 years ago??? . She's recorded that song many many times. ... I thought this might be NEW!
