This is to test the poll question function.

Has to be "Hitmaker" - remember getting this on vinyl way back on the 1960's - and playing it to death!

No easy decision, but I tend to Painted From Memory! I still feel showers over my back when listening to these terrificly great songs. Elvis Costello s voice and Burt s songwriting fit perfectly and I wish, there had been a second album of this collaboration! A true gem in a world of fast paced one hit wonders...;-)

Mark,

:D Congratulations for the new format.

Answering to the poll: I don't know how to do it... For me the best BB album is "Burt Bacharach" (the Green Album).

Thanks, Tom.

I think the problem is you need to register with a username and sign in to be able to participate in polls. Once you register you can also start your own polls. This poll is kind of screwed up, though, because Painted From Memory is listed twice and I can't for the life of me figure out how to edit it.

With any luck I'll figure it out eventually...

If this phpBB forum works the way the A&M Corner Forum does, you should be able to select "Edit" on the lead post. From there, I would think there would be an option to Add or Delete items from the poll.

Since I couldn't edit the poll questions properly, I pulled the plug on this poll. The final talley was a four-way tie between Hitmaker!, In Concert, Woman and Painted From Memory, each with two votes. Not exactly scientific, I realize, but a start.

If I'm not mistaken, all registered users can post their own polls, so please feel free to try out this feature of the board.

Burt Bacharach (1971) or Make It Easy on Yourself (1969). Probably the latter. Then, Reach Out or Butch Cassidy.
