This link is the following: Together since '99, Casino Royale is a ten piece band w/go go dancers whose songs, dances, and style all set the tone for a happening like no other. Miniskirts and boots, velvet suits, flowers and beads; spy culture mystique with daring, dashing men and sexy secret agent babes; sassy soul struttin' and eye-poppin' fashion are all represented in Casino Royale's action packed performance!

Casino Royale plays decade-bending classics such as 'Tainted Love', 'What's New, Pussycat?', 'Always Something There To Remind Me', 'I Say A Little Prayer', 'The Look Of Love'; soul shakin' hits 'She's A Lady', 'Son Of A Preacher Man', 'I'll Take You There', 'Shout', 'Hard To Handle'; and period-defining tunes like 'These Boots Were Made For Walkin'', 'Use Me', 'I Got You, Babe', 'Secret Agent Man', 'The First Cut Is The Deepest', 'Mellow Yellow', 'I Just Wanna Celebrate', and 'Incense & Peppermints.'

And if you see them in the L.A. area when Burt is not touring, you may well see the gracious Miss Eliza James, (Burt's violinist extraordinaire) wiggling her stuff as part of the show.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is.

another great youtube clip

a live or lip-synced version of a different take, replete with clarinets
and vocal group, not unlike the way Burt would arrange for these
elements on some of his early records..
a fantastic "adult" rendering by the then only 16 year old Brenda Lee...
just a genius production...she had so much talent at at that age it was scary!
I wonder who the arranger was? Bill McElhiney?
anyway, its great...give it a gander and a listen...
the dynamic "I'm Sorry" by the late, great songwriter Ronnie Self
original recoding produced by the late great genius Owen Bradley

You could see the love that Ronald Isley had for Burt... and vice versa. I remember seeing Ron on Conan O'Brien (with Burt sitting next to him) and saying about Burt, "this man is a genius." I think Ron knows music and songwriting and has known many a songwriter in his day, and yet, you can see the awe he has for Burt.

I was wondering if Burt himself changed the music where Ron sings "I can hardly wait to hold you, feel my arms around you" (this change happens later, not the first time) or if Ron improvised that change? Either way, I really like it.

I also love that new intro to the song here. Burt must have REALLY loved it, because he wrote a whole new song around it and put it on "At This Time".

I hope Burt comes out with a new CD soon (of all new music and songs)! It's like when I used to wait with such anticipation for a new Burt/Hal/Dionne song.

The April Fools

Postby An Enormous BB Fan » Sun Jul 29, 2007 12:12 am

Here's an interesting version of "The April Fools" (the title is erroneously listed as "April Fools") by Earl Klugh. The song is so beautiful, it amazes me that it hasn't been done by more and more people over the years. But this guitarist does a fine version of it, doesn't he? Does any composer get such yearning and sadness in his melodies? Burt has been such a gift to us all.

Wow!!! Thanks so VERY much for this link! I loved that 2-part interview. To hear Burt talk like that about his music is fantastic. And when he went to the piano and played a little -- particularly the bit from "Danger" and then talked about it -- was fantastic!! I rate "Danger" as one of the greatest pieces of music EVER... by ANYBODY! It's that good! And so unusual. Burt talked about the dissonance in it. I also got the feeling from the interview -- combined with that other interview posted here when he was in Australia -- that Burt and Dr. Dre had either some kind of falling out or some break in their relationship. But Burt's genius is such that he could compose fantastically wonderful music based on a short drum loop. Burt mentions his gift for melody in either the above or what I'm going to post below.

Here's a great podcast interview with Burt. I got this link from the link above... so a double thanks to you Marcel!!

Here's the version of Wanting Things (in Promises Promises?)

I haven't heard Astrud Gilberto and Dionne's versions for a long time
Astrud's one was really good, i think but Dionne's was again
wonderful too

Maybe someone posted this link before, but it is rather recent.

As someone said, it's priceless. Burt and Dionne rehearsing what was to become Loneliness Remembers.

I don't know whether anyone has posted this yet. It's Burt and Cilla Black's recording session video for her "Alfie". I've seen excerpts of this before, but never this longer version:
