Yes, Bacharach/Simon compositions were part of the unreleased three-song Burt/Dionne session. I believe Phil Ramone was involved in those recordings, too.

Ron, I was surprised too to find the 4 Rhino Handmades still available via their website. Perhaps that explains why the Rhino brass wouldn't greenlight further reissues, though I had read that Ms. Warwick wasn't in favor of the series continuing (mainly because she didn't want the albums "competing"...

Hi, perhaps I should have made myself a little clearer in my original post -- the CCM reissues are of the Scepter albums NOT in the Rhino Handmade series (VERY DIONNE; PROMISES, PROMISES two-fered with I'LL NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN; THE WINDOWS OF THE WORLD two-fered with VALLEY OF THE DOLLS; SOULFU...

New Dionne reissues from CCM

For those of you who might not have picked up the British two-fers some years ago, Collectors Choice is on 1/2 releasing a number of original Dionne albums to CD, and they're boasting fresh remastering, too. This batch includes the never-on-CD LIVE IN PARIS, ON STAGE AND IN THE MOVIES and THE MAGIC ...

RE: "I'm Gonna Find Her"

I don't believe the Steve & Eydie recording is currently available (though S & E are little by little getting their catalog on CD via their website, as I'm sure you know), but Brian Gari has recorded a version of "I'm Gonna Find Her" on his BRIAN GARI SINGS WILLIAMS & NICHOLS CD. Hope this helps!

It's fascinating to compare the Peter Matz-arranged version on the FLIP SIDE soundtrack to Burt's single release which can be found on Hip-O Select's SOMETHING BIG box set. And both are smashing, swinging and perfectly encapsulate the era as much as Burt's scores to CASINO ROYALE, PUSSYCAT, etc.!

Burt in CT!

As Vincent and Paula have mentioned, Burt's Mohegan Sun shows were wonderful!! I was there Saturday night, and he played a solid 1:45 of hits! And what a pleasant surprise it was to hear Donna Taylor do "Fallin' Out of Love" from Aretha's last album. We got 4 songs from AT THIS TIME, which the audie...

And one more...

Don't believe this single has been released yet on CD -- here's Eydie Gorme's lovely version of "This Girl's In Love With You" -- listen real close towards the end for what sounds like beautiful harmony with hubby Steve Lawrence.

Promises, Promises at Encores!

Hi,

From the 1997 Encores! production of PROMISES, PROMISES, thought you folks might enjoy Martin Short & Kerry O'Malley's delightful "You'll Think Of Someone".

Hi Keith, I think Tracks 7 & 9 of the demo are missing -- 7 altogether, and "Where Knowledge Ends" (Track 9) is actually the film soundtrack version. Thanks so much for these priceless recordings!!

Thanks for these wonderful treats!! Someone mentioned the elusive Burt & the Backbeats single in another thread...anybody have the original Keely Smith "One Less Bell To Answer" or an audio track of Barbra Streisand's "Be Aware" from Burt's TV special? Thanks as always! :-)

Thanks, Keith -- "I Might Frighten Her Away" is my favorite song from LH, and Burt's demo is indeed, as Blair put it so eloquently, a beautiful little gem, as only the Maestro could perform it himself. Gorgeous!
