Re: Remember New York Animals?

Re Snow White, are the songs that bad to be kept under wraps for over twenty years? If Bacharach won't touch them with a barge pole, why hasn't BA Robertson, once a successful recording artist in his own right, cut them or is their association with a failed project and the resulting falling out wit...

Re: Remember New York Animals?

Blue, you can hardly be accused of "banging on" about something I can't remember being mentioned before in the seven years I've been parking my bike on this forum. "There was one with BA Robertson, the Snow White thing. I put a lot of time into, spent a lot of money going to England ...

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

A song by Roger Manning Jr, formerly a member of the nineties rock band 'Jellyfish'
It strays into Bacharach territory throughout, especially at 3:51....damn those Flugelhorns !
