Brings back wonderful memories of the 60s with Burt and his songbird, Dionne, and all the other wonderful performers of his sophisticated, excellent music, and, of course, the outstanding Dusty Springfield. Bravo, Burt.

American pianist/composer, Burt Bacharach (now 88 years old), has had an amazingly successful career as the writer of some of the most popular songs ever recorded in the pop music industry.

Throughout the 1960s (and well into the late-1970s), Bacharach teamed up with lyricist Hal David, and together this dynamic duo of the popular song penned more #1 hits than any other American songwriting team of their era.

A 6-time Grammy Award winner, Burt Bacharach has, to date, a total of 73 top 40 tunes to his credit.

This "Best Of" CD contains 3 discs of more than 70 songs, featuring the vocal talents of such notable performers as Gene Pitney (watch video), Etta James, Perry Como, Tom Jones, Gloria Gaynor and Elvis Costello, to name but a few.

This is simply the most enjoyable and comprehensive compilation available for casual fans of Burt Bacharach. All the great songs are here in their original or best-known versions: Walk on By, Say a Little Prayer, Close to You, Any Day Now etc., and are bolstered by a wellspring of supremely high-quality, lesser known tracks.

A bunch of interesting performers make appearances: Tony Orlando, Richard Chamberlain, The Drifters, The Hollies in addition to Bacharach steadies like Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield and Gene Pitney. Even as a Bacharach enthusiast, this set will keep you satisfied for many listens and I heartily recommend it for anyone who appreciates skilled songwriting and powerful vocal performances.
