As a fellow Bacharach fan of many years, it is with sadness that I note that Keith seems to have left us. He was instrumental in providing us with genuine "rarities", and I, for one, was more than grateful for them. After all, isn't this what its all about - sharing things between collectors. Sadly,...

Recorded in Paris in 1964, and - yes - arranged/conducted by Burt, as he was Marlene's arranger/conductor at this period.

Marlene sings Bacharach

thought that Keith might not have this one? (hopefully - as a "thank you" for all the rarities he's been posting here recently - enjoy!)

Wonderful - so grateful! Thanks again Keith.

One slight niggle though - the link for track 10 (Please Let Go) links to track 9 (All the Way To Paradise) unfortunately!

Keith - you certainly know how to "share the joy"!
Many thanks for all the recent rarities you've been posting for us Bacharach fans.
(Would love to hear the rest of the Stephanie Mills sides - hint!)

Lost Horizon

Just a reminder to all members who live in the UK - Channel Five are broadcasting the film musical "Lost Horizon" on TV today (01/01/2006) at 12.30 lunchtime. A rare chance to see this.

I own the UK DualDisc version of this album, and had no problem copying it onto my mp3 player (Creative Zen Extra - not an IPod!). Makes the journey to work a lot more appealing, listeining to Burt....etc

Think you might be referring to the Dual Disc issue of this CD. The one I got via the Internet has the audio CD tracks on one side - and a 20 minute DVD interview with Burt on the other side of the disc. Number is: 82876742832 (Sony/BMG Dual Disc) Hope this helps? Superb CD, by the way - love the fi...

I think that the BBC-TV documentary is titled "This Is Now" which aired on the 1st January 1996 and ran for 50 minutes.

London Life

A recent British 2 CD set "It's So Fine" (Castle/Sanctuary CMDDD 1159) contains a couple of Bacharach/David "rarities": Anita Harris's "London Life", which Burt reportedly wrote for especially her and "The Last One To Be Loved", performed by Billie Davis, a 1960's UK songthrush.

Thanks to you guys for the heads up on the Scepter Records Story 3 CD set! Managed to get hold of a set via Ebay ( for a great price!), and there are some real Bacharach goodies on it too - I love the Chuck Jackson version of "Any Day Now", Tommy Hunt's "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself", an...

I was lucky enough to be able to chat to the great man way back in the 1960's, when he was conducting for Marlene Dietrich on her 1964 and 1965 concert tours. As an impressionable 18 year old, it was an eye opener to be able to visit the stage door at the Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh and talk to both...
