Re: To Webmaster Mark.

Hey Djalma, Sorry I didn't reply earlier. I've been researching anti-spambot measures in phpBB and unless I'm missing something, none seem to be 100 percent effective. I haven't found an easy plug in like the ones you see asking you to select all the pictures that have storefronts or all the picture...

Re: "Bob Dylan", Nobel Laureate

I'm a fan but I do think the awarding of a Nobel Prize for literature is inappropriate. As "poetic" as his lyrics may be, they're songs and they're meant to be experienced that way.

Re: 2017 Tour Dates?

As soon as I get confirmed dates from Burt's publicist, they get added to the On Tour Page. http://bacharachonline.com/wordpress/on-tour/ As of right now, Burt is still scheduled to play Jazz Alley in Seattle from Oct. 20-23. He also announced a new date at San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall on No...

Re: Dionne's first TV special to air on getTV

Sorry, grooverider! I totally missed your earlier posting. Yes, it's great to see it re-aired, although unfortunately getTV doesn't air in my market. I'm hoping somebody will record and post the entire show to YouTube.

Re: Dionne's first TV special to air on getTV

The Glen Campbell clip is watermarked with getTV's logo, so someone recorded it. Maybe somebody over at the Glenn Campbell Forum can upload the whole show. I was especially impressed with the quality of the video. I've got VHS copies of Burt's TV specials from that era and the quality isn't that gre...

Guests include Glen Campbell, Creedence Clearwater Revival, comedian George Kirby and (of course) Burt Bacharach. Here'...

Re: We Seem to Have Come to Another Halt Here

I realize it's partly (mostly?) my fault for failing to run a tighter discussion forum, but I wonder sometimes what happened to some of the old regulars. Who here remembers Maggie? Westgate? Warbachavid? BCelarent? David Lincoln Brooks? Gil or whatever his name was? Although things sometimes went a ...
