Re: Two more Bacharach & Tashian songs

Of the collection so far, my favourites are Blue Umbrella, Midnight Watch and Whistling In the Dark...

Not as good as Alfie, Walk On By and The Look Of Love but good none the less

Okay, but how many times are these guys going to try to sell us the same album with a couple of extra tracks tacked on?
I think this well is dry.

Re: Blue Umbrella with 2 bonus tracks

21st Century Man is a gorgeous track. Love it.

Blue Umbella and Midnight Watch are also my favourites.

Wonderful to be hearing new Bacharach material.

Re: Two New Rarity Collections, Cont`d

The Andy Williams version of 'A Question Of Love', to me, feels over orchestrated.Song seems bogged down by too much orchestration. Would be better with a simpler arrangement, maybe even just a piano backing.

Irish Times Article

I had a quick scan back through through the board and couldn't see this article from May 2019. Anyway, I thought it might be of interest.

Can't help thinking that an album release of Some Lovers and some consequent radio play would drive audience numbers for this musical....
