Re: Dionne Warwick Rarities Collection

I must be in the minority here - I am so looking forward to hearing some of these rarities - and I still think that the Scepter recordings are the high point of Dionne's singing career. Her voice and range are breathtaking in some of her discs from that period. Bring it on!

What a gem! She was so assured and relaxed. I loved hearing Any Old Time of the Day. Priceless!

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

"Asteroid" - the Pearl and Dean theme was composed by Pete Moore - not sure where you got the Webb connection from! Catchy tune though.

Sublime! Can't wait for the album. Surely one of Burt's loveliest melodies.........

Re: A Bacharachonline concert first

How was it? Would have loved to have gone, but it was a bit soon after Burt's last Edinburgh visit to the same venue.

Burt Bacharach book

For those of you who live in the UK - the bargain store "Poundland" has copies of Burt's recent book "Anyone Who Had a Heart - My Life and Music" for a measly quid!

At least the branch on Livingston/Scotland near me had a pile of them on a stand near the door

Re: Dionne Warwick's voice

[quote="BlueLotus"]I am a great fan of Burt Bacharach and his music....... Though he is late, he still lives among us with the magic of his songs.

No, Burt is still VERY much with us - and still touring! Long may he do so!

Re: The maestro in Edinburgh

Meant to include the fact that Burt mentioned during the Edinburgh concert that he is writing a musical based on the "Painted From Memory" album. He and Elvis Costello are writing some new songs for it as well.
Don't know if this has been posted elsewhere?

Re: in London

"Trainers" is (are?) the British term for what you Americans call sneakers: ie: running-type footwear.
One more example of the language difference between continents!
Still high from seeing Burt on Saturday night in Edinburgh.
