Re: reaction to last night's PBS program

I haven't had the chance to see this much-deserved honor bestowed upon Burt and Hal. I have read fellow Burt fans' reaction, and I appreciate it. I just wanted to comment about why Dionne was not at the White House: we have to remember that this was an event honoring Burt and Hal, and NOT Burt, Hal,...

Re: White House Press Release, Burt & Hal Gershwin Award

My 2 cents: It is rather unfortunate that Dione will not be at the White House. Whatever the reason for her not being there is, does not matter. It does NOT change her admiration, respect, love, and appreciation for Burt and Hal. Also of note for his absence, is Elvis Costello. His wife, Diana Krall...

Something interesting

Greeting to alll Bacharachians out there, Here is a link to a video of a great singer. You may have heard of her, but this is BEFORE she went to the stratosphere of famous. Before she 'rolled in the deep', before she had '21', she was recognized by none other than the man who has a keen eye and ear ...

Re: Dionne: New Bacharach Songs ??

From what I have read, these are NEW songs written by Burt and Hal, and the album will be produced by Phil Ramone! It doesn't get any better than that.

Re: A mini tribute to one of Burt's arrangements

I think I may be in the VERY minority here, but here goes: I prefer Burt's albums than performances by other artists. Sorry, but it's true. For me, listening to Burt's renditions of his music is just magic, pure and simple. His arrangements of: "Reach Out For Me", "Wives and Lovers", "I Say A Little...

Re: beautiful song for a cold day

Having my 2 favorite artists join forces for a song was awesome news to hear back in 1998: Burt Bacharach would write a song and CHICAGO would perform it! The song: "If I Should Lose You" intended to be used in "Isn't She Great?", but for some reason, did not make the cut, the song was included in C...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

It would be really nice to hear a 21st Century tune composed by Bacharach/David and sung by Dionne. If that would never happen, the last tune was "Sunny Weather Lover" from 1993 AND Dionne's last Bacharach-written tune was "Captives of The Heart" from 1994, if I'm not mistaken. Please correct me if ...

Re: Lost Horizon to DVD on October 4

Greeting to all fellow Bacharach-ians! It's been a while since my last posting. I find it incredibly hard to believe that this post hasn't received any more replies. The release of 'Lost Horizon' on dvd has got to be about the most sought-after dvd by Burt fans. I've seen the movie a few times, and ...

Reunion?

It seems to be that reunions are taking place with bands. I was just curious and wondering if Burt and Dionne would ever work together again. If I'm not mistaken, the last time both worked together was in 2006 on American Idol (at least on television). I would take it a step further and suggest a re...

Burt on the radio!

Greeting fellow Bacharachians. I live in Monterrey, MX and last night, on one of the local radio stations, titled 'Night Tracks', they played tribute to none other than Burt! The show was titled 'Burt Bacharach and Friends', in other words, they played 3 hours of Burt's own interpretations AND songs...

Burt CDs

Hello everyone, First of all, Merry Christmas to all fellow fans of all things-Burt. As a huge fan of Burt's solo material, I have a question: does anyone know if or when, if ever, Burt's A&M records will be available on CD? I know 'Reach Out', 'Make It Easy on Yourself', and 'Greatest Hits' are ava...

On the Special edition DVD, an alternate ending is that 'Sundance Kid' plays over the end credits.

Re: A VERY SPECIAL EVENING IN SAN DIEGO

Can I just ask one simple question? And this is just an observation: How many people at Burt's age are doing half as much as Burt is? I mean 'At This Time' was released when Burt was in his 70's! The man is constantly writing, performing (aside from the back surgery)! I am 37 right now, but boy, do ...

Brilliant

Hello to all! I guess we all can agree that Burt is one heck of a brilliant composer. It had been a while since I watched a fantastic movie over the weekend, and while watching it, I couldn't help but notice that although there are only about 12 minutes of music in the film, just one listen to a pie...
