Re: With A Voice

I agree 'blue' Last night - Another great evening with Burt and The San Diego Symphony. Biggest audience response was to John Pagano's performance of "With A Voice" which Burt introduced with comments on the HOT weather in Europe experienced during their 12 performance tour which ended thi...

Re: Life to see another day: new song!!!

Davide:

Thank you for posting this. ... Easy to envision Josie James, John Pagano & Donna Taylor performing this in concert (or even recording it!). Hope they include this in this evening's performance with the San Diego Symphony. ... Looking forward to it!

Re: With A Voice

.... BIG QUESTION now - who will record the "definitive version" .... Hope John Pagano gets an opportunity!

Re: With A Voice

Martin Johnson & Sara D

One of those songs that you love the first time you hear it! ... John's vocals are excellent and I'm really looking forward to seeing it "live" when Burt performs here in San Diego with The San Diego Symphony on August 3rd! .... Thanks for posting!

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: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

... Blair and Martin: I've just been lifted out of "the rut" referred to here. ... Often forget how compelling a voice Randy Crawford possesses and I do pick up on the "sounds like BB" vibe - especially with the 2 words "People Alone". ..... Easy to imagine how Dionne c...

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?

Re: Bacharach & Costello benefit concert

....Blair! The Belly Up is just a mile north of me and close to Burt's home here in Del Mar. ... Although I'd like to attend - the local horse racing crowd is in a far better financial position to support this effort and I suspect it will sellout fast. ... Those who labor behind the racing scene are...

... 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!

Re: Burt's Top 3 songs of all time(I know it's subjective)

... for me - an impossible task! ... My favorites are always in an active rotation - it would be far easier to identify those on the opposite end of being my favorites but even those pop up occasionally on my ever changing favorites list!
