A mighty nice collection of cuts – one that not only really gets at the genius of Burt Bacharach's songwriting, but also shows the way his music works well in so many different settings too! The 40-track collection is heavy on music from the 60s and 70s, and also features a few gems from later years too – and the music here is a mix of soul, vocal, rock, and other styles – with a wide range of artists that really show Burt's lasting impact on music in the 20th century
! These tunes are undeniable gems – classics you've no doubt heard in some version over the years – yet some of the readings here are unusual, and unusually fresh as well – a lasting tribute to the sublime sounds of Bacharach.
