Johnny Mathis Warm and Tender

I find this song so innovative for 1957. Is Mathis singing tritones? What am i hearing? Anyway i wanted to know if Lieber and Stoller had a hand in the production. This song sounds like a Bacharach composition produced by them. Around 1957 Bacharach was one of the main assistant composers to Lieber/...

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

I always thought this was a Bacharach composition.....wrong again ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ggqa5FeKWak 'blue' The production can pass for a Bacharach knockoff but there is a certain magic missing. Its like a composer said let us make something that Burt would make for Dionne and did their ...

Re: Most complex Bacharach song ever

So colleagues, what do you think it is most complex BB song ever? You will all say Promises Promises with its changing time signatures, but I'd like to propose Captives of the Heart - layer after layer of sound and rhythms. "Captives" is a nice song, and certainly complex, but it doesn't ...

Kotter theme gives me that Everybodys Outta Town vibe.

Re: NEW ORIGINAL SONG WRITTEN BY TWO BIG FANS OF BURT!!!

If you had a good engineer you would really be onto something. This really captures that late 60's/early 70's Burt vibe.

Burt could have wrote all the opening songs for 70' sitcoms(RIP Mar y Tyler Moore)

Well i wasnt alive to see them during the day but its the first thing that comes to mind when i see the reruns. Mary Tyler Moore died today and silly me never knew that her theme song for her self titled show was written back then as id always heard the new mellenium pop rock version in commercials....

Re: Essra Mohawk an obscure gem similar to Laura Nyro

Because of the generation I was born into I have to do alot of my own digging and unearthing of these gems so that is commonplace for me but to know that Essra is obscure to the aficianados of her own generation is mind blowing( Laura as well). I will look into Bonnie and welcome any other references.

Lieber and Stoller stealing music or someone stealing from them?

Compare and contrast these two songs. The bass lines in the beginning sound identical for the most part. How likely is that?

Essra Mohawk an obscure gem similar to Laura Nyro

Its interesting that the world still has such obscure gems buried so deep. I discovered her name in the credits of Shangr-Las Ill never learn which i found to be very catchy and modern for a early 70s song. Lo and behold Essra turns out to have some serious songwriting chops and her artistic choices...

Re: Olympics Music

I would go as far as saying there would be no "brill building sound" as we know it without Brazilian music. I think most of the major writers seemed to have been very aware of what was in essence bossa nova in sao paolo. Of course this is just my educated theory as I was not alive back the...

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

This goes without sayin but basically all the brazilian traditional bossa nova type music makes me think of Bacharach.
