Re: Promises Promises 2CD set from Kritzerland

Kritzerland managed to get rights to issue a second 1000 of this release! Get one while they are still available - well worth it.

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Thank you, guys, for all the info about "The Look Of Love" recording: I did think that it might have been on that rare "Dionne Sings Dionne II" - it's one of the few that I don't have in my collection. Will have to look out for it now! It is a breath-taking performance of this B & D song.

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cs79NjF4om4&feature=related This is a terrific version of "The Look Of Love" by Dionne - I have searched for this on all my Dionne CDs and albums, but can't find it anywhere - any suggestions? It runs for over 4 minutes - and is not the normal Dionne recording of this ...

Re: New Bacharach Early years CD

My CD arrived here in Scotland today - haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but the layout, design and quality of the booklet and CD looks superb! I have transferred the tracks to my Iphone, and will be listening to it on the bus commute into Edinburgh tomorrow. Always great to have more (and n...

Re: That old Dylan / "Raindrops..." story

I would dearly love to hear that Dionne version of "Everybody's Out Of Town" - imagine her voice against that slithery backing track! (I love that intro). It is a very under-rated B/D song.
Wonder if it will ever turn up - maybe David Nathan could instigate a search of the vaults?

Re: New Bacharach Early years CD

Has anyone been able to pre-order this CD from the website? I keep trying, and it knocks me back when I am about halfway through ordering - also tried the PayPal link, but that doesn't seem to work either - do you think it might be available from amazon later? Looks excellent, by the way - loads of ...

Re: Magic Moments: The Definitive Burt Bacharach

Well it's been released in the UK, I received my copy from amazon.co.uk here in Scotland this morning. Haven't had a listen yet - but it's a 3 CD digipack, with a small booklet inserted into a slot in the sleeve.
Hope to get round to hearing this later today.

Re: Always Something There - Ace compilation

Well! I gave this CD a listen to and from work today: all I can say is, all Bacharachians need to get this for their collections! If only for the truly wonderful (and raucous) "Move It On the Backbeat", which I guarantee you will want to play over and over - I did! From the opening fanfare of trumpe...

Or how about a "Loneliness" medley: "Loneliness Remembers What Happiness Forgets"/"Let Me Be Lonely"/"I Cry Alone"/"A Lifetime Of Loneliness"/"The Beginning Of Loneliness"?

Where does this guy get all these rare and marvellous Dionne clips - a lot of them are before video recorders were even invented!
It would be great to have a DVD full of them, in the best possible quality..........
