We're firm believers that you can never get enough work by Burt Bacharach – especially when it's as brilliant as this! The collection is a wonderful overview of Bacharach tunes performed by different artists – mostly recorded in the late 60s for Warner Brothers and Atlantic Records, in a mix of modes that includes jazz, vocal, and soul interpretations of some of Burt's best tunes ever – all given a slightly different twist than their more famous originals! Bacharach himself was always open to new sounds and new styles, and we're sure that if he heard this set (he has, hasn't he?) he'd be plenty pleased with the track selection – because the scope stretches to many areas that the Great One touched from his private little corner in modern music, and beautifully illustrate how much greater the world has become, thanks to his musical gifts! Package features 18 tracks in all – including "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" by Young-Holt Unlimited, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Long After Tonight Is Over" by Paris Sisters, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Sergio Mendes, "Let The Music Play" by The Drifters, "Made In Paris" by Trini Lopez, "Don't Say I Didn't Tell You So" by Herbie Man, "Make It Easy On Yourself" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "This Guy's In Love With You" by Roy Ayers, "Close To You" by Carmen McRae, and "Promise Her Anything" by Marty Paich. (Small amount of writing in pen inside booklet.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
