Re: Swing out Sister new cd

Getting into this album big time. Love the vocal arrangement, flute and percussion on 'Which Wrong Is Right':

Re: UK Tour 2018

I wonder if Bacharach has ever played a concert in Berlin since the Marlene Dietrich days? Well, much to my amazement he's scheduled to play the Admiralspalast Theater in the city on July 14th. I have many friends there and several of them are planning to go.

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

I think in the UK Tony Hatch was just as well known for writing instantly catchy TV themes as he was for his songwriting. 'Man Alive' was a brilliant BBC current affairs programme which started in the 60s and went on until the 80s. It's fondly remembered by many as is its theme tune by Hatch. https:...

How sweet of Burt to oblige me with Brighton on the 9th.

Re: UK Tour 2018

The Festival Hall seats well over 4000 and as I write both shows are on the verge of selling out with only around 70 or 80 seats still available for both nights.

Re: Swing out Sister new cd

There's plenty of press stuff but I haven't found much on YT in the way of interviews featuring both Corinne Drewery and Andy Connell and certainly nothing which goes into any depth about their songwriting. However, I recently discovered this excellent short promo film for the 'Get In Touch With You...

Re: 90th birthday concert tribute to BB in Chicago

Liz Mandeville is a real down and dirty blues singer and I wish I could be there to see her adapt her style to perform Bacharach, assuming that she does adapt her style, of course!

Re: Swing out Sister new cd

What Martin J omitted to say was that 'Where Do I Go' is from 'Somewhere Deep In The Night', the somewhat downcast album that came before the generally more upbeat and optimistic 'Where Our Love Grows'. I might have thought that the title track to the album at the heart of this topic was a touch sac...

Re: Bacharach in unexpected places...

Who's recording of 'Wives and Lovers' did they use? I don't recall ever hearing any Bacharach in a non-musical theatre production but his music can often be featured or heard in the background on TV shows, especially, bizarrely enough, gardening programs and a few years ago the producer of BBC's Gar...

Re: Swing out Sister new cd

I don't think the focus here on SOS has anything to do with nostalgia, nowmedical, anymore than our love and appreciation for Bacharach has. Besides, I'm still discovering songs posted on here I'd never heard before (aren't we all?), like the exquisite 'Butterfly'. I'm usually quite slow on the upta...

Re: Bacharach in the U.K. 2018

Apologies for the short notice but I've only just discovered this 'Back To Bacharach' show on tonight (Friday the 26th) at the Richmond Theatre, West London.

Re: Swing out Sister new cd

I seem to be the only person here who actually got this album at the time of its release, although I have to admit it was given to me as a gift. Swing Out Sister have been reinventing the past in their own image for three decades now and despite their music revealing all kinds of different influence...

Re: Bacharach in the U.K. 2018

I see that singer/actress Lauren Samuels has her own (with guests) 90th birthday tribute to Bacharach at Crazy Coqs, Zedel Brasserie, London on the 12th and 13th of May.
