Bob,

If you and Davide get a chance, take some photos and email them to me to post on the site! I'd love to see your collective collections of Bacharachanalia.

That should be a great show. I attended Burt's concert there a few years ago and it was a lot of fun. The subway ride back to 168th Street, on the other hand, wasn't so much fun.

I was lucky enough to pick up a CD of "On the Flip Side" in Japan a few years ago. Even though I bought five or six Bacharach CDs there, I wish I'd bought more. If I recall correctly, all (or most) of Burt's solo albums were reissued on CD in Japan in the 1990s. I'm still trying to nail down a track...

Yes, Burt does know about it, although I can't imagine he spends much time lurking here. He and his people are aware of the site, though, and they routinely send me items that may be of interest to fans to post on the site.

As Warbachavid indicated in his original post, the Bravo broadcast is July 18, not June 18.

I've thanked him privately but I also want to thank warbachavid publicly for all his posts. God knows I don't update the site as often as I should, so his posts provide a steady flow of fresh info and help keep us all up to date on the activities Dionne, Burt and Hal. So thanks!

I would hope that everyone who weighs in on this topic exercises restraint and respects the opinions of others. That said, it's kind of a no-win proposition for me. If I fail to try to determine Burt's true birth year, some people will criticize me for neglecting my role as a provider of reliable, c...

I never did a talley, but I know I'd seen his birth year listed as both 1928 and 1929. I vacillated on the issue, especially when one of the correspondents here said Burt had personally told him 1929 was correct. Obviously, there was a miscommunication or perhaps Burt was engaged in the grand old sh...

The Tony Orlando version is available on the Rhino Records box set "The Look of Love: The Burt Bacharach Collection." You ca...

Burt's Birthday

Settling the debate once and for all, a British correspondent emailed me a copy that he had obtained of Burt's birth certificate.

The correct date is May 12, 1928, making Burt 76 years old as of a week ago.

Great news is right. Scott sent me this info last night and I hadn't had a chance to post it yet. I have to admit I was unaware of Hip-O Select, which appears to be to Universal Music Group what Rhino Handmade is to WEA. I'm trying to get a tentative track listing to post. If anyone hears anything, ...

Thanks for posting this discovery, Gabba. The "enumeration date," which I assume means the date the information was collected, is April 23, 1930, but for the life of me I can't decipher line 79 column 13, which should indicate Burt's age as of that date. If his year of birth were 1928, the numeral i...
