First major Bacharach song

The first Bacharach song to make an auteur of me was "Come and Get Me" by Jackie de Shannon.

Lost Horizon Instrumental Score

Does anyone (perhaps the administrator?) know if thre is any chance that the instrumental score (as opposed to the official soundtrack) for Lost Horizon will ever be released?

Best of the 80s

I strongly agree with the above instrumental tracks from Arthur and would add a vocal selection from that ST: Fool Me Again.
Most of the collaborations with Bayer-Sager were pretty lame, but their album,Sometimes Late at Nght (with the exception of the two non-Bacharach songs), was very good.

If you`re not familiar with the compositions of Jim Webb you have a lot of work ahead of you.
In addition, if you`re willing to dig for obscurities, check out the album by Paul Williams` former composer Roger Nichols entitled Roger Nichols and the Small Circle of Friends.[/list]

unrecorded ballet

A few years back on the American Masters program, Burt was seen in collaboration with the British choreographer Gillian Lynne. Was this project ever completed and,if so,are there any planned (or extant) recordings of the result?
