Re: New Version of What the World Needs Now by Dionne Warwick

Hey ,
this is not really allied to the topic, but I was shuffling through the Atlantic Records Sessionography of the Drifters from 1963, and saw the the typical lineup of session backup singers (The Gospelaires?) were Dionne, Dee Dee and Doris Troy...!!! : ) If youre reading this, Hi Dionne!

Re: Francis Lai 1932 - 2018

Hi Blue, Hope you are doing well..I was shocked to see the great Francis had passed..I dont know what I was expecting..as he lived a pretty long life..but one just kind of goes along in life, thinking our heroes are living and with us...yes, it was a shock, and I felt and still feel sadness for the ...

Re: Blast From The Past

Hi BLue, Ty you for your welcome back. Hope you are doing well. I seem to remember Burt doing South American Getaway a couple of times, but I could be wrong ..its kind of hazy...There was a time in the early 70s when he had his singers on stage to perform some of the Lost Horizon songs..He had a mix...

Re: Johnny Mathis Warm and Tender

Noticing all the covers of Warm and Thender, I see that Orchestra leader LeRoy Holmes did a verison of it back in the day...He did it on an ep, as well as The B side to a 45 single(MGM K12460)

Re: Johnny Mathis Warm and Tender

Sara I do her a momentary tritone in bar one of the vocal,(or bar 2 if you are doing cut time) but it is merely a side stepping procedure to the next note forming a 4th....almost an ornamental note. It was kind of "jazzy" lol regarding the Leiber and Stoller connection...this is possible, ...

Walk on By

Ive been subliminally thinking about Burt/Dionne record Walk On By.....thinking that Burt might have taken his inspiration musically from Take 5 by Dave Bruckeck, whom Burt admired...
it kind of loosely follows the harmonic scheme for a bit....Any thoughts?
