Re: Burt Bacharach - A life in Song, Festival Hall, London

Having been at the concert I agree with comments already expressed especially those about Joss Stone, Alfie Boe and Shaun Escoffery. They certainly understood the songs and put a lot into them. The reason Michael Grade was the host is that this was one of a series of A Life in Song concerts at the R...

Re: John Barry RIP

In addition to We Have All The Time In The World from the Bond film On her Majesty’s Secret Service Hal David also provided the lyric to John Barry's theme for Moonraker sung by Shirley Bassey.

As a boy I can remember JB with his group The John Barry Seven.

A sad loss.

Re: Burt in London: concert review

Just noticed in my play list (second post on this thread) I missed out The World Is a Circle. :oops:
It was in the movie medley after What’s New Pussycat.

Burt in London

While looking at John Pagano's website I noticed on his Appearances page he has dates in London with Burt scheduled for October 21/22, this is just before the Italian tour. No other details at the moment. If it comes off this will be great news!!
:D

Cheers,
