Re: Lost Horizon to DVD on October 4

Thanks, B2B. I, too, have long hoped this material will finally see the light of day, as well as the rest of the unreleased music promised by David Nathan in the Rhino Handmade liner notes for future volumes that, alas, never arrived...fingers crossed. Thanks, too, to David for getting Dionne's WB c...

Re: Lost Horizon to DVD on October 4

Has anybody here actually heard the fruits of those 1974 Bacharach/Warwick sessions? They've long been my true Bacharach holy grails. It's been said that the songs recorded were: "Plastic City" (Bacharach/Russell; registered 1974), "And Then You Know What He Did" (Bacharach/Russe...

Lost Horizon to DVD on October 4

It looks like LOST HORIZON will arrive, packed with extras, on DVD on October 4. The downside? It appears to be part of Sony's made-to-order DVD(-R) program rather than a pressed DVD. Some details here: http://www.oldies.com/product-view/1441ED.html Now, if only the laserdisc's isolated score track ...

Re: LOST Horizon

LOST HORIZON was released on a fantastic laserdisc, complete with isolated score track. Rumors emerge every year or two about a DVD/Blu-Ray release, but nothing's come of them...keep your fingers crossed, everybody, and that such a release includes the music-only track and more!

Re: Rare Bacharach

Lee has unearthed a number of treasures over the years. I urge readers here to check out the "Tuesday Morning Burt" post, especially, for two songs that weren't even catalogued in the main section of the Serene Dominic book. Lee has located recordings of: CRYIN', SOBBIN', WAILIN' (Bacharac...

Re: Beautiful Newish Burt song...

I can't recommend Nikki Jean's new album enough. "Pennies in a Jar" (the title track) and Nikki's co-write with Thom Bell (who hasn't been nearly as prolific as Burt in recent years), "How to Unring a Bell," will both linger with you way beyond the first listen. But the entire al...

Re: any word on "Gift of the Magi"?

No fear, THE GIFT OF THE MAGI is still in development, but unfortunately the normal period to bring a musical to fruition can be years rather than months. Word is that the last readings/workshop went well, and hopefully there will be more progress this fall, even as Steven Sater has his hands in oth...

Re: Dionne's new album of Sammy Cahn songs released next month

I'm surprised that it's been underplayed that Dionne has recorded a Bacharach song on her new album: "Keep Me in Mind," introduced by Patti Page in 1955 and co-written with Jack Wolf, one of the two songwriters Dionne is celebrating on this disc. (Sammy Cahn, of course, is the other.) From...
