Bacharach's enthusiasm for those songs is very evident in his performances and he must have thought that he and Hal David had yet another sure fire hit on their hands with 'Lost Horizon' to add to their already long list of successes. Bacharach's reaction or overreaction to its eventual failure, resulting in the break-up of their partnership and the split with Dionne Warwick, always brings to mind the line from the poem 'If' by Rudyard Kipling, "If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors both the same".

Wow, that´s really something!!! Never heard these demos. I wonder what else A&M Records had in their vaults.
