Re: New Elvis Costello album

I'm going to stick my neck out and predict that the version on the album of 'He's Given Me Things' is going to be a whole lot better than that live rendition. Here's another one of those three tracks that have been put out ahead of the album's official release next month, 'Unwanted Number': https:/...

Re: Dionne - Odds & Ends album

My goodness, how did this album slip under the radar ?
There's some really rare stuff on that one !
Thanks for the "heads up" Hank !

Re: R.I.P. ... Vincent Cole

This is shocking news, Vincent and I chatted many times over the phone about Burt, he was a great concert goer and a very kind man and a dear friend, I'm devastated to hear this.
My thoughts are with his wife Cheryl, family and friends.

RIP Vincent,I'll miss you....mon ami.

Re: 'LISA' ?

blue, this recording is so rare that not even Stefan Wesley, a former member of this parish and a well-known Bacharach collector and archivist, had a copy. I'm beginning to suspect that the only people who might have heard it are Mr Ingmann's nearest and dearest. Paul, I guess we'll never know ? 'b...

Re: 'LISA' ?

Paul, thank you for the info.
Apparently a Danish artist named Jorgen Ingmann recorded a "cover version" I've never heard it, as anyone else ?

'LISA' ?

I've often wondered who Bacharach and David were referring to in the title of this song ?

Re: Burt Bacharach London 2018 on BBC Radio 2

Unfortunately they cut the two new songs written with Melody Federer (“Bridges” e “Blanket Capes”) ... If the Radio 2 producer hadn't decided to feature the three hit records at the start of the program there would have been more than enough time to include the two Melody Federer songs. Sara, I can...

Re: With A Voice

.... BIG QUESTION now - who will record the "definitive version" .... Hope John Pagano gets an opportunity! I agree. I can't imagine it being improved upon by anyone else. Having heard him perform the song in concert twice I'd say he's never sounded more impressive. It's John's song.........

Re: With A Voice

One of the best songs Bacharach's composed in years.....can't wait for a 'studio recording'.

The magic's still there ! :D
