This might be a stretch. But this song from the Ojays(Mr Lucky) produced by none other than the amazing Gamble/Huff songwriting team has a lush and swingy sound and i get a bit of Bacharachesque vibe from it. What do you guys think?

Thom Bell is another one who could do a good dupe of Bacharach when he wanted to. Listen to this Dusty Springfield lesser known gem "i wanna be a free girl"

The Stylistics only for the children has Bacharach elements in the chorus. Thom Bell was def a fan.

Somehow when I first downloaded Come To My Garden, I didn't get this song:

...so a very pleasant surprise to find it when playing via Spotify recently.
There is some echo of Promises, Promises here...The entire album is full of fantastic sonic moments that remind me of Burt.
....And Minnie's amazing voice.
Hank you should ask for your money back. Track 7 out of 10 outstanding tracks on this truly outstanding album.
