Re: New Cover of "The Balance of Nature"

Layne:

Your admiration for Burt shines through on this heart felt interpretation of this timeless song. Looking forward to you sharing some more of your own compositions in the near future!

Re: Unearthed Movie starring Dionne (1992)

B.B.W.

This is puzzling - apparently a made for TV movie that I never heard of and never heard Dionne make mention of it. ... Wonder if it was ever broadcast?

... steveo

"Alfie" is one of Burt's Best; however, I don't feel it's as complex as so many others - some of which are cited above!

... Going back to when I first heard Dionne's recording and Album "Promises Promises" in 1967 - this song remains a favorite BB/HD composition of mine. Although the definitive version belongs to Dionne - I do enjoy the cast recording performances within the play. .... For many years Warwic...
