Re: Leslie Bricusse R.I.P.

Apparently this was Henry Mancini's favourite composition....

Leslie Bricusse R.I.P.

I've just heard the sad news that the great composer / songwriter Leslie Bricusse has died at the age of 90.

He composed and co-wrote many great songs (especially with Anthony Newley)...here's just one of them.



R.I.P. Sir.

Re: Be Aware

Although Streisand`s televised rendition of the song was aired in `71, Dionne`s recording was out of the gate at the start of `72. I wonder if the famously temperamental diva resented that and withheld her version out of spite. Too bad BtoB isn`t still around. He might have some insight. https://ww...

Re: Jimmy Webb performing on TV in 1968

Here's an oddity, a TV performance of Webb's much underrated album 'The Animals Christmas' from 1986.

Jackie sings Bacharach....
I wonder if Tony borrowed the children's chorus from Burt ?

I couldn't agree more, they are all pretty "vapid"

Re: Bacharach TV Special From 1972

So many great moments, but the part where Burt is recording 'Nikki" is utterly priceless!
And the opening number 'Wives and Lovers' is an absolute knock-out!

Even after all these years, this show still has the power to astound!
Paul, thank you for posting.

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

Thanks Paul....and here's another Hatch instrumental, co-written with his then wife Jackie Trent who had a huge hit with her version in the UK charts back in 1965...

We are huge fans of Burt Bacharach music and we try to make a renditon of an old Burt's song, sang by Paul Anka in the'60.
Hope you enjoy our rendition!

Lovely rendition, really enjoyed it !
Thank you for sharing.

Re: Story Behind the Song: Raindrops Keep Fallin'

Paul,
I seem to remember British deejay Tony Blackburn playing "WGTG" quite often on his radio show, but he was about the only one.
