Re: ????? new Burt's CD????????

Burt and Bernie Taupin have already collaborated some years back on one song entitled 'When Love Survives," which has only seen release on a Warner/Chappell publishing demo of Bacharach songs. (There are many other unreleased titles from this demo disc including a song co-written with Dave Logg...

Re: Remember "Some Lovers"?

SOME LOVERS isn't exactly dead, but it is in the same development hell that plagues so many musicals - MOST musicals - these days. Heck, it took Stephen Sondheim almost ten years before his musical ROAD SHOW (previously known as WISE GUYS and BOUNCE) made it to New York. I'm sure we'll hear more fro...

Re: Dionne Warwick ...... "NOW"

I can't speak to the quality or the production of the remake tracks ("Be Aware" and "I Just Have to Breathe," reportedly, plus the more well-known hits), but I'm disappointed that misinformation is apparently being spread about a Burt/Hal reunion. CNN reported over the weekend: [...

Re: Dionne Warwick ...... "NOW"

Hi there B2B, the lyrics to "Is There Anybody Out There" aren't Hal's. Rather, Burt penned the tune in 1995 (originally recorded by singer Mari Ijima) with John Bettis, James Ingram and "Puff" Johnson. Burt's other "new" song is "Love is Still the Answer," als...

Re: Hal David is gone

May this remarkable lyricist and remarkable man, who's left behind a legacy that will no doubt continue to inspire, rest in peace.

My own tribute to Hal can be found at The Second Disc:

Two new Bacharach-related releases...

Hey all, Just a heads-up about two recent releases (one on CD, one digital) which might be of interest... Germany's Jazz Club series (an imprint of Universal Music) has recently compiled WIR LIEBEN BACHARACH, a collection of German-language versions of Bacharach songs including some you might not ex...

Bob, you've piqued my interest!

Who are the song's writers? Searches via ASCAP and BMI don't seem to turn anything up...

Re: March 26 publicity Event?

Billboard has full coverage of the event, and the article indicates that the Phil Ramone-produced CD will offer Dionne's performances of two songs written by Bacharach without David, and two songs written by David without Bacharach. Nothing about "new" material, as we suspected: http://www...

Re: The Fate of "Some Lovers"

Sadly, the reality in musical theatre nowadays is that it takes years to get a musical to NYC; just ask Stephen Sondheim or John Kander and the late Fred Ebb, all Broadway legends who in recent years have had shows close out-of-town or take circuitous paths before finally arriving.
