✨✧ Burt BacharachCasino Royale ... LP
Colgems, 1967. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing! Burt wrote all the tunes – and the album's a wonderful romp, with lots of odd twists and turns that are quite different from Burt's usual bag (baby!), but which still have all of the charm of his best work. A few performances on the set are by Herb Albert & The Tijuana Brass, who do the completely chaotic "Casino Royale Theme" – and the lovely Dusty Springfield sings a versions of "Look Of Love" that has to be the best ever recorded! Other tracks include "Home James, Don't Spare The Horses", "Money Penny Goes For Broke", "The Venerable Sir James Bond", and "Hi There Miss Goodthighs". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove.)

Burt BacharachMake It Easy On Yourself ... CD
A&M, 1969. Used ... $8.99
Fantastic work by maestro Burt Bacharach – subtle genius, and an album that offers more to us every time we listen to it! Burt's work has been recorded by many – but few ever gave it the kind of treatment that he did – as you'll hear in this brilliant array of sweeping strings, sly syncopation, and well-placed instrumental solos! The sound is breathtaking throughout – a new level of maturity and majesty for 60s instrumental pop – and the record's an enduring classic that deserves a place in every sensitive record collection. Includes the amazing cut "Pacific Coast Highway", plus great versions of other classics, like "Wanting Things", "She's Gone Away", "Knowing When To Leave", and "This Guy's In Love With You". CD

Burt BacharachTogether? ... LP
RCA, 1979. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A lost Burt Bacharach treasure – a bit later than classic vintage, but a wonderful album from the mature maestro – and sometimes overlooked, due to its status as a soundtrack! The work here is totally great – that mellow, easy-flowing style that Burt really perfected around the time of Living Together – served up here in a batch of sweet instrumental tracks, plus a few key vocal numbers with lyrics sung by Jackie DeShannon, Libby Titus, and Michael McDonald – all of whom slide down more into the Bacharach ethos than stand out as their usual selves – and we mean that in a good way! Titles include "I Don't Need You Any More", "In Tune", "If We Ever Get Out Of Here", "On The Beach", "I've Got My Mind Made Up", "Find Love", "Luisa", and "I Think I'm Gonna Fall In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach (composer)Always Something There – A Burt Bacharach Collector's Anthology 1952 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Rare Bacharach galore – an assortment of under-reissued tracks all penned by the mighty Burt – most of which are from the heyday of 60s uptown soul! Despite the 1952 in the date range on the title, almost all the tunes here are from the mid 60s – that time when Bacharach was writing new tunes like a demon, and getting most of them recorded by a range of great talents on the New York scene. Singers are a good mix of soul, pop, rock, and vocal artists – and although the material was done for a variety of different labels, there's a relatively unified feel – thanks to that snapping syncopation that Burt always brought to work like this. CD features 26 titles in all – including "How About" by Della Reese, "Third Window From The Right" by Dean Barlow, "I Wake Up Crying" by Del Shannon, "I Looked For You" by Charlie Gracie, "That's Not The Answer" by Vi Velasco, "More Time To Be With You" by Brook Benton, "Three Friends" by The Turbans, "Move It On The Backbeat" by Burt & The Backbeats, "You're Telling Our Secrets" by Dee Clark, "Thirty Miles Of Railroad Track" by The Hammond Brothers, "The Story Of My Life" by Big Al Downing, "Made In Paris" by Trini Lopez, "Rain From The Skies" by Adam Wade, and "True Love Never Runs Smooth" by Don & Juan.

Burt Bacharach/The HolliesAfter The Fox – Original Soundtrack ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Sealed ... $14.99
Burt Bacharach's fab score to a goofy crime film that starred Peter Sellers, and which features lots of groovy instrumental tunes from Burt, plus a vocal track sung by The Hollies, and even one by Peter Sellers! Titles include "After The Fox", "Italian Fuzz", "Hot Gold", "Tourist Trap", "Bird Bath", and "Love Times 2". LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach/Tom Jones/Dionne WarwickWhat's New Pussycat? ... LP
United Artists, 1965. Very Good+ ... $1.99
The classic Burt Bacharach score for What's New Pussycat – a mid 60s sex-farce starring Peter Sellers and Peter O'Toole! The album features some amazing vocal tracks that have become enduring classics – like "What's New Pussycat?" sung by Tom Jones, "Here I Am" sung by Dionne Warwick, and the incredible "My Little Red Book" sung by Manfred Mann – but almost better than these are the Bacharach instruments – handled by Burt in ways that really move past some of the simpler stylings of his pop work of the time, yet which still have all the breezy Bacharach charm firmly intact! Some of these sweet original titles include "Marriage, French Style", "Stripping Really Isn't Sexy, Is It?", "Catch As Catch Can", and "Pussy Cats On Parade". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Burt BacharachReach Out ... LP
A&M, 1967. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic! We love Burt Bacharach in so many ways that it's easy to forget the genius of these early A&M sides – but going back to them is always a treat, and it's wonderful to hear the way that Burt lays down his own work when given the chance! You know the tracks – "House Is Not A Home", "Bond Street", "Reach Out For Me", "Are You There", "Windows Of The World" – but you may not know the arrangements, which are superb – quite different than the more famous vocal versions you've probably heard ad infinitum, and recorded at a level that brings a whole new magic and majesty to 60s pop! An essential record for any fan of all things groovy – and an album of new pleasures each time we hear it! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Burt Bacharach/Hal DavidPromises, Promises ... CD
Kritzerland, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
Burt Bacharach and Hal David's sole entry into the musical genre – a weird little musical that's based on the film The Apartment! The record's a lot less "Broadway" than you might think – and often handled with the same sly syncopated style of Bacharach's regular pop work – particularly that of the later A&M years. And even if you're not the sort to go for the usual sort of musical, this one's filled with some really great little tunes that stand with some of Burt's best later work – and which are almost even more interesting, given some of the themes that get explored! Musical direction is by Harold Wheeler, and Jerry Orbach's one of the key vocalists of the set! Titles include "Upstairs", "Knowing When To Leave", "She Likes Basketball", "Half As Big As Life", "Our Little Secret", "Christmas Day", "Grapes Of Roth", and "Wanting Things". CD
(Out of print. Limited edition of 1000. Still sealed.)

✨✧ Burt BacharachHit Maker! – Burt Bacharach Plays His Hits (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Kapp/Elemental (Spain), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great batch of early work from Burt Bacharach – one of the first albums to be issued under his own name, and proof that Mr B was head and shoulders above most of the other arrangers and composers of his time! At some level, the style here is a bit more traditional than some of Burt's later work – with strings and vocal chorus used on many numbers – but the tight, focused, syncopated Bacharach groove is already very firmly on place – on a set of all original numbers, done as instrumentals with some really incredible production! Voices float next to tinkling piano, sweeping strings, and stepping rhythms that show that even when things are mellow, they can still be a bit funky – and the record easily takes 60s easy to a whole new level of maturity and sophistication. Titles include "Wives & Lovers", "Trains & Boats & Planes", "What's New Pussycat?", "The Last One To Be Loved", "Saturday Sunshine", "24 Hours From Tulsa", and "A House Is Not A Home".

VariousBurt Bacharach – The First Book Of Songs 1954 to 1958 ... CD
El (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... $11.99
A host of early Burt Bacharach compositions – mostly not sung or recorded by the maestro himself, but handled by a host of different talents from the 50s! The package is a great testament to the depths of Burt's writing, even at this early point – and many numbers are from the generation before Bacharach started hitting big with Dionne Warwick, which makes the tunes sound a lot fresher than some of his 60s hits. The style is more conventionally pop, but still pretty darn great – and there's some surprisingly great soundtrack numbers on the set too. Titles include "Humble Pie" by The Four Preps, "Peggy's In The Pantry" by Sherry Parsons, "The Morning Mail" by The Gallahads, "I Cry More" by Alan Dale, "The Story Of My Life" by Marty Robbins, "These Desperate Hours" by Mel Torme, "That Kind Of Woman" by Joe Williams, "It Seemed So Right Last Night" by Mary Mayo, "Saturday Night In Tijuana" by The Five Blobs, and "The Story Of My Life" by Michael Holliday.

✨✧ LoveLove ... CD
Elektra, 1966. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Love's first album – a seminal bit of Sunset Strip rock, and every bit as powerful today as it was in the 60s! The style's a bit sharper-edged than the group's classic and more familiar Forever Changes set, but it's still pretty darn great – a completely fresh batch of guitar-heavy tunes that bristle with a sound that's a lot more sinister than some of the group's contemporaries. There's a few folksy or bluesy elements in the mix, but they're almost used in a way that parodies bigger acts of the time – turning the familiar into the freaky, all with a sense of power that's simply mindblowing. Titles include the group's excellent version of Burt Bacharach's "My Little Red Book", plus "Hey Joe", "Emotions", "A Message To Pretty", "Mushroom Clouds", "And More", and "Coloured Balls Falling".

Manfred MannMy Little Red Book Of Winners ... LP
Ascot, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A great step forward for Manfred Mann – a record that's deeper, stronger, and nastier than previous efforts – as evidenced by their wicked take on Burt Bacharach's "My Little Red Book"! What the cats do to that tune perfectly sums up their genius at this point – a sharp fusion of blues and soul influences, put together in ways that are really different than other UK combos of the period – often past any cliches that would show their roots too much, and with the start of a sneer that would appear more strongly from other fronts in the 60s. Original tunes include "You're For Me", "The One IN The Middle", and "Without You" – and the set also features versions of "Brother Jack", "Poison Ivy", "With God On Our Side", and "My Little Red Book".

Dionne WarwickDeja Vu – The Arista Recordings 1979 to 1994 (12CD set) ... CD
Arista/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 12CD ... $49.99
A huge run of music from the legendary Dionne Warwick – all of it very different than her early work with Burt Bacharach, and brought together as a strong testament to her ability to change and grow over the years! Although Dionne started as a sweeter singer in the 60s, and had a few great Warner Brothers moments during the 70s – she really reemerged strongly on Arista at the end of that decade – thanks to strong help from a label that really knew what to do with a top-shelf female singer, and help them move past some of the pop and disco pitfalls that brought down some of their contemporaries in the decade! Warwick really returned to the American consciousness with these records, then kept on growing and maturing – really able to shift through a range of styles as the 80s moved into the 90s, even ending up with a bit of jazz in the mix – as you'll hear on this long run of records. The box set features twelve full albums, a great value for the price – records that include Dionne, No Night So Long, Hot Live & Otherwise, Friends In Love, Heartbreaker, How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye, Finder Of Lost Loves, Friends, Reservations For Two, Sings Cole Porter, Friends Can Be Lovers, and Aquarela Do Brasil.

Scepter, Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $1.99
Lovely early work from Dionne – one of the greatest voices to ever get the support of the great Burt Bacharach, the guiding hand on this tasty batch of early singles! We hardly need tell you about these tracks, because if you know Dionne at all – these are the songs you know! Titles include "Walk On By", "Wishin & Hopin", "Don't Make Me Over", "Anyone Who Had A Heart", "Reach Out For Me", and "You'll Never Get To Heaven If You Break My Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

Dionne WarwickSoulful ... LP
Scepter, 1969. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Dionne's certainly winning the "soulful" tag on this albums – working with Memphis producer Chips Moman, in a mode that's clearly designed to give her more credibility with the hipper soul scene at the end of the 60s! Burt Bacharach's still in the shadows, but Moman's the real genius on this set – working with Dionne to create a style that's got some of the same touches as Aretha Franklin's work on Atlantic, but a bit smoother overall – in keeping with the Warwick vocal mode. Dionne opens up amazingly in the set – hitting notes never heard on the Bacharach sides, and going for an almost gospel-inspired approach on a few numbers. Tracks includes "I'm Your Puppet", "You've Lost That Loving Feeling", "You're All I Need To Get By", "Do Right Woman", "People Get Ready", "We Can Work It Out", and "People Got To Be Free".

Stevie WonderEivets Rednow – Alfie ... LP
Motown, 1968. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A late 60s all-instrumental set from Stevie Wonder – and a record that shows a real change from his style in the earlier part of the decade – a much more mature move forward, and one that hints at the power of his arrangements in the 70s! As you might guess from the "Alfie" in the title, Wonder takes on a bit of Burt Bacharach – but also then moves in to other territory too – numbers that feature his harmonica over hip larger arrangements, almost with the feel of a Toots Thielemans album at points – and a bit of a soundtrack vibe at others, particularly some of the more keyboard-oriented cuts. Titles include "Alfie", "A House Is Not A Home", "Grazing In The Grass", "Never My Love/Ask The Lonely", "Ruby", "Which Way The Wind", "Bye Bye World", and "How Can You Believe".

✨✧ Bobby VintonVery Merry Christmas – The Complete Epic Christmas Collection ... CD
Epic/Real Gone, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pure pop from the Polish prince – a classic Christmas set issued during the height of Bobby Vinton's 60s years on Epic Records! The album's got this quality that makes similar use of Vinton's vocals as some of the Johnny Mathis magic on similar Christmas records – a style that still echoes the clarity and punch of his pop recordings, but also brings in a bit of majesty befitting the season – cast in fuller arrangements from Stan Applebaum, Ray Ellis, and Hugo Winterhalter! The song selection is surprisingly nice – with some unusual songs that make the album a real standout – including a great version of Burt Bacharach's "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle", plus "Dearest Santa", "The Greatest Gift", "Peppermint Stick Parade", "Three Wise Men Wise Men Three", "The Christmas Tree", "Christmas Angel", and "Christmas Chopsticks". CD features the full Very Merry Christmas album – plus bonus tracks "My Christmas Prayer", "Silver Bells", "Winter Love", "O Holy Night", "Kissin Christmas", and "Christmas Eve In My Home Town". CD

✨✧ Dionne WarwickValley Of The Dolls ... LP
Scepter, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Not really the soundtrack for the movie – but a sweet batch of tracks that feature the lovely Dionne Warwick singing the title tune – and stretching out on a host of other great 60s numbers too! The album was recorded in two different sessions, mostly with backings by Burt Bacharach – who always makes his own music sound great – with a bit of extra help from Pat Williams, Manny Albam, and Garry Sherman – who each get a tune to work with. Gone is the dreamy optimism of some of Dionne's earlier albums – and in its place is a more mature, slightly sadder style that's really great. Titles include "Valley Of The Dolls", "For The Rest Of My Life", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", "Silent Voices", "Let Me Be Lonely", "You're My World", "Where Would I Go", and "Walking Backwards Down The Road". LP, Vinyl record album
