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?

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

Just curious, if I could get a list of what people think are Burt's top 3 songs of all time..I know this is ridiculously hard.....but if some of you could mention what you feel to be Burt's best, and any lyricist that Burt wrote with is game. I realize that it's all subjective. I would choose: 1. Th...

Re: On My Own: sublime or turkey

I know as a songwriter(not famous) I have written some things in hindsight that turn out to be 'not so great"(to me)..and I understand that when people criticize, that they don't realize how difficult it is to write...but I'm not big on this song.....

Re: Who were The Five Blobs?

Thanks for the information on the "Five BLobs"...I have read elsewhere that it was Bernie Nee overdubbing his voice several times....I'm sure the sax player on the record was a famous
session musician...Anyway, cool record!
