Apparently the five tracks that make up the EP have been in the can for about a year and I wonder if they weren't tempted in the interim to expand the project to a ten or twelve song album? While I think 'Bells Of St. Augustine' is the outstanding song, 'Blue Umbrella' and 'We Go Way Back' are real...

Re: 'Midnight Watch' ...new Bacharach / Tashian song.

I don't think it's that controversial, Blair. Looking at it on purely artistic grounds, I think the partnership with Carole Bayer Sager represents the nadir of Bacharach's career. To my knowledge, no one has yet to record a 'Sings the Songs of Bacharach and Bayer Sager' album and I can't imagine th...

I can't imagine how any fan of Bacharach's music could not love this beguiling and excuisitely orchestrated piece by Morricone.

Ennio and Burt....separated at birth ?

Another prime example....

Morricone was a Master at blending music and imagery, here's his love theme from 'La tenda rossa' ('The Red Tent')

A song that lingers long in the memory.

Re: First released recording of 'Knowing When To Leave'

I remember the first production of Promises, Promises that I saw was on the London fringe in 1996 and perhaps because the short run was scheduled for August the two overtly Christmassy songs in the score were dropped, so instead of witnessing the wonderful incongruity of Turkey Lurkey Time being pe...
