I neglected to buy those titles on CD when they were available as European and/or Japanese imports and now I'm kicking myself. Vinyl copies turn up with some regularity on eBay and at thrift stores. I haven't searched eBay for the CDs lately, but they're out there so they must turn up once in a whil...

Thanks for the news, Ron. The timing is a bit dicey for me, but the combination of Burt and San Diego is hard to resist.

This is unfortunate news. The fact that Dionne's CDs were released on Rhino Handmade--as opposed to Rhino--let me to believe they were labors of love for the label and not held to the same profitability standard that ordinary reissues are subject to. This disturbs me, because I've always been a fan ...

Wow. Are those the Rhino Handmade releases? They're not even listed on the Rhino Website yet.

Bacharach samples?

Late Sunday night I was listening to New Orleans' great college radio station WTUL-FM (you can listen to its simulcast via RealPlayer at http://www.wtul.fm ). I'm not up-to-date on my genre classifications, but it was sort of a chill/lounge electronica sort of show. The track that got my attention w...

What a great story, Jim. Thanks for posting. One question about the set list: I'm unfamiliar with the song I Remember You. Can you describe it? For those unfamiliar, Rudy's A&M Corner is a wonderfully comprehensive site dedicated to Burt, Herb Alpert, Sergio Mendes, the Carpenters and all the other ...

See those Burt shots (thanks, warbachdavid)? No way that's easy listening... Gotta love the guy! Burt's showcase performance in New York with Ron Isley last November was the first--and probably only--chance I had to take flash photographs throughout a show. I probably snapped about 50 shots during ...

Bacharach music in TV commercials

I was just trying to identify a song from current TV commerical when I came across this forum: http://adtunes.com/forums/ It got me thinking that we've never compiled an comprehensive list of commercials that use Bacharach songs. So I'll start: 1. The current Saturn commerical ("it almost feels like...

I didn't ask him after a show. One of the forum's correspondents, Roberto de la Garza, if I recall correctly, said that while talking with Burt after a show, the topic of his birthday came up in the context of their conversation (as opposed to Roberto asking Burt point blank). Burt responded that an...

Sorry. I posted an explanatory edit in the "New Tour Dates in Italy Announced" thread.

The San Antonio date turned out to be a private function. No tickets to the general public will be available. When I found that out, I deleted it from the online list.

Since I couldn't edit the poll questions properly, I pulled the plug on this poll. The final talley was a four-way tie between Hitmaker!, In Concert, Woman and Painted From Memory, each with two votes. Not exactly scientific, I realize, but a start. If I'm not mistaken, all registered users can post...
