Re: Scott Walker 1943 - 2019

English veteran singer Cliff Richard sang Make It Easy On Yourself and The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore during his 1974 Japan tour..
Not a bad medley at all.

Re: Was it Dionne or was it Burt/Hal?

My personal opinion is Aretha and Dionne are totally different in style and genre. Dionne sings "white" music

Cover version of I Might Frighten Her Away

How about a Filipino Chinese ballad singer singing this song from The Lost Horizon
(a duet with another Filipino Janet Basco)
I think it is as good as the original..
