A totally wonderful collection of work from the legendary songwriting team of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil – and one that goes way past some of the too-familiar hits we've heard from the duo over the years! Instead, this one seems to focus on the less obvious – tunes that might be famous, but recorded by some different artists than the hit versions – or some more unusual songs from Mann and Weil, served up with the kind of readings that should have made them huge! Most work is American, but there's also some tracks from overseas – pulled together from a big range of indie labels in the 60s, with a few cuts from later years too. Titles include "This Is A Love Song" by BJ Thomas, "Bless You" by Wildfire, "Angelica" by Roy Hamilton, "You've Lost That Lovin Feeling" by Dionne Warwick, "It's A Happening World" by The Executives, "Talk To Me Baby" by Barry Mann, "Come On Over To My Place" by Dewey Edwards, "Come Home Baby" by Terry Knight, "I Don't Want To Love You" by Skeeter Davis
, "Not You" by Walter Jackson, "See That Boy" by Paris Sisters, "Till We Kissed" by Ray Columbus & The Invaders, "Baby Baby" by Julie Grant, "The Gospel Truth" by The Shirelles, "The Shape Of Things To Come" by The Graduates, "Hungry" by The 5AM Event, and "Glitter & Gold" by Danny & Diego. Great notes – and an excellent package overall!
