Re: "I Took My Strength From You"

If Dionne recorded this song I would dearly love to hear her version. Robin Platts (page 91) doesn`t mention a date , only to state that Dionne and Burt went back into the studio following the DIONNE LP (which was released early 1972). With the forthcoming release of the three songs from 1974 (lyric...

Re: "Three Wheels on My Wagon"

Steve, Burt actually performed this song (piano and vocals) when he appeared on DINAH ( with host Dinah Shore) in 1980.

Re: 2 more good but little-known songs

Steve,

Yes , they are fine songs and I know why you like them so much- its the arrangement by Burt and the production by Burt and Carole Bayer Sager.
Check the website discography (Davide Bonori) . The songs are from their 1991 album LOVE TALK.

Tom JOnes - US

The very first rendition of `Us` I remember hearing was by Burt who sang the song on the Dinah Shore Show in 1977. It was during the conversation with Dinah Shore that the then new album `Futures` was discussed. I can recall that Dinah told Burt that Bobby Shew played the trumpet solo during the son...
