Re: Samples of all 12 songs on Dionne's new album "Now"

I have listened to the samples...very interesting how Donne's voice now goes so into such low keys or tessitura... I would say, although this version is not my cup of tea, with the new rhythm "feel" perhaps "I say a little prayer" might appeal to the millenios? I liked Are You Th...

Re: Burt Bacharach says Andy Williams was a 'natural' singer

Re: "The World Is A Circle" - Disneyland Records (1973)

I remember when this came out...The "execs" at Disneyland Records in Burbank heard Burt's song score for Lost Horizon, and loved it. Jimmy JOhnson, president and co-founder of Disneyland Records thought it would be great if the "Disney Chorus" did a few of the songs....so they di...

Re: Burt in San Diego

There have been no reports about the aftermath of this concert....One of the reasons for of the lack of reporting is that the "usuals" or faithfulls that cover Burt's concerts were not allowed to see or kibbitz with Burt after show(for whatever reason)...NOW Im not saying this was Burt's f...
