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"
