'The Last One To Be Loved' I've never heard Burt play that 'live' before ?
I keep hoping for a concert version of 'South American Getaway' but that's probably asking too much ?

Steve, great to see you back ! :)

Hi BLue,
Ty you for your welcome back. Hope you are doing well. I seem to remember Burt doing South American Getaway a couple of times, but I could be wrong ..its kind of hazy...There was a time in the early 70s when he had his singers on stage to perform some of the Lost Horizon songs..He had a mixed choir there. I think this may have been The Hollywood Bowl.
Cheers.

It could be argued that Burt was the only American in the British Invasion. (Think about that)
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is.

And Bacharach was held in very high regard in the UK...and still is.
