An album of the songs that Bacharach and Steven Sater wrote for the musical Some Lovers has just been released. It features dozens of performers mostly associated with the Broadway stage and from the album here's Welcome To My World and A Thousand Things That Were You:

Talking of impressive singers, I think it was a master stroke getting Jennifer Holliday of Dreamgirls fame to sing 'Every Other Hour' for this album, especially as the arrangement is very close if not identical to the one featured in Bacharach's shows in recent years.

I listened to most of the album today. ... Jennifer Holliday delivers a fine performance of "Every Other Hour"

Maybe I just haven`t spent enough time looking but I can`t find any information about this album.
Whose project was it? Who produced? Who arranged? Is this a collection from the singers` various albums or...what, exactly?

Blair, all these artists were brought together by Broadway Records to record the 'Some Lovers' album and Bacharach is credited as one of the co-producers. There's thirteen tracks and so not all of the songs that were featured in the London production of 2017 are included. Here's some more information:

Thanks, Paul.
Now, if only a similar project could be arranged for `New York Animals.`I thought that that score was at least as good and in some instances better than SL.
