The Bacharach/Jene Miller song, "With A Smile" is from a Japan Nippon Colulmbia Triad cd "Tribute to Burt Bacharach" (1994). Nine tracks: "I'll Nver Fall In Love Again" by 5th Garden, "The Look of Love" by Soul Bossa Trio, "Are You There (With Another Girl)" by Carnation, "Make It Easy On Yourself" by Kyoto Jazz Massive, "Me Japanese Boy" by Pizzicato Five, "Bond Street" by les 5-4-3-2-1, "The April Fools" by The Cozy Corners, "Mulino Blanco"(an instrumental) by Burt Bacharach and "With A Smile".
The cd liner notes give no info about Jene Miller. All of the tracks, except for the two Bacharach ones, give producer and musician credits.



Blue, as you can see Jene Miller's 'With A Smile' has been discussed on this thread before but what wasn't mentioned is the musical phrase in the song which Bacharach used again for his and Elvis Costello's 'Tears at the Birthday Party':

Martin, many thanks for mentioning that post, I'd completely forgotten about it.
I can hear the similarities with 'Tears at the Birthday Party' thanks for the info.
