This goes without sayin but basically all the brazilian traditional bossa nova type music makes me think of Bacharach.

re: Amanda

marvellous, but why would Burt and Hal produce a soundalike song for other songwriters?

I`m guessing that DW`s contract w/Scepter stipulated that each release be a Bacharach/David production, if only formally.
If BtoB is still around, I`m sure that he can shed more (authoritative) light.
Addendum:
I no longer have copies of albums like Magic of Believing, Soulful et. al., but I`d bet that they, too, are B/D productions despite having not one B/D song on them.
