Re: Lost Horizon demos

When blue posted the Lost Horizon demos on here a few years ago I commented that Bacharach's enthusiasm for the songs was obvious from his performances and he must have been very confident as to their reception at the film's release. Little would he have known that Fate was lurking round the corner...

I sincerely hope that Elvis Costello sends a special advance copy of this 4-album box set to Bob Dylan as a Christmas present.
I'm sure Bob would appreciate it.....(ouch !) :D

Dylan's book might come in handy as a suitable door-stop.

..... 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: Golden Rule lyrics

Slightly off topic...the "golden rule" line also crops up in another Bacharach / David song 'You'll Never Get To Heaven'

Hal certainly had a thing about "the golden rule".

Re: No one told me Michael Jackson and Burt worked together.

After all these years I attempted to listen the Carole Bayer Sager album this track is on. I hate to say this but it was really bad and i mean really really bad not even Burt could save it. I have a new respect now for Hals relationship in the tandem and the triad(where Dionne is concerned). Carole...
