Chiffons upon the bridge

This number is complete with the typical bossa nova rythim and horn adornment just like ole Burt loves.

Chiffons one fine day has a similar rythm section to Jay and the Americans Look in my eyes Maria which has a super composer collabo of Bacharach/David and Lieber/Stoller.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5nIgUdWQug Chuck Jackson- Keep forgettin. 140 onwards very Bacharachish it sounds like Dionne on background vocals. I truly believe Burt had a hand in this and just wasn't credited.

I wouldnt be suprised if this song wasn't posted already but it would be great if this site could keep Bacharach's legacy alive long after he is gone and show the influence he had on his contemporaries and those that follow after him. Another gem penned by the great Jimmy Webb who we all know was greatly influenced by Bacharach and has admitted as much. Here is the obscure BJ THOMAS song if you must leave my life. The first 30 seconds is very Bacharachesque to me and 136 me think of the Lost Horizons soundtrack(maybe the background singing style)

Get ready for some convolution this is a gamble/huff song that sounds like a thom bell song that sounds like a Bacharach song sung by a singer who worked with Bacharach Dusty Springfield. Heres her rendition of Free Girl written by Linda Creed.

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.
