Re: Dionne Warwick - The windows of the world 2013 WEA

Sorry, but most bonus tracks are not missing. There are actually five MORE bonus tracks than originally announced if you take the entire series into account. "He's Movin' On" and "Amanda" can both be found in their mono single versions on the new Japanese VERY DIONNE CD. I'm stil...

Re: Dionne Warwick - The windows of the world 2013 WEA

It appears that a number of bonus tracks across the Japanese series have been added/dropped/reshuffled from the finalized track line-ups. (For instance, GREATEST MOTION PICTURE HITS now features no bonus tracks, though some announced for that title have apparently ended up on VERY DIONNE. THE DIONNE...

Re: New Bacharach Box Set On The Way!

I detail a number of the errors (both typographical and otherwise) in my review, above, but how about this one: Tommy Sands' "Love in a Goldfish BOWEL"?? Burt and his legacy deserve better, but it's particularly a shame because this box set had the potential to be a definitive assessment o...

Re: Burt`s book

Burt hasn't made a secret of the fact that the book has been constructed from (new) interviews. Similarly, co-author Robert Greenfield mentions the genesis of the other participants' interviews in the book itself. Off the top of my head, I believe some of Angie Dickinson's quotes were derived from a...

Re: NEW Bacharach/Costello MUSICAL?

Not sure what you mean about SOME LOVERS, Blair. The score was completely original and penned by Bacharach and Sater for the musical. It's just a sign of the long gestation period of musicals that a handful of songs were recorded before the show was actually staged. Burt writes in his book that he a...

Re: Lisa Carroll "Don't Count The Days"

"Don't Count the Days" is a terrific Bacharach/David composition with a bit of the feel of "Knowing When to Leave" to it. It was recorded twice in 1968, but alas, neither rendition had Burt's involvement. Charlie Calello arranged it for Marilyn Michaels on ABC-Paramount, and Lex ...

Re: 2 CD Live album availability

Not sure whether you want to order from Australia, Blair, but if you do, you should be able to order the 2-CD "complete," 40-track edition from The Music Shop (an Australian merchant) at the Amazon link provided above.

Best,

Joe
