Biography

With a hit-single track record spanning four decades, Burt Bacharach became one of the most important composers of popular music in the 20th century, almost equal to such classic tunesmiths as George Gershwin or Irving Berlin. His sophisticated yet breezy productions borrowed from cool jazz, soul, Brazilian bossa nova, and traditional pop to virtually define and undoubtedly transcend the staid ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Marks the end of an era magnificently July 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
For many, 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' is the quintessential 60s movie, portraying a couple of lovable, free-spirited rogues whose lives end in glorious defeat. (It was immensely popular in England, perhaps because we try so hard to be good losers!)
It's virtually impossible to divorce the soundtrack from the movie. In the space of a little less than 28 minutes, you get three versions of the theme from 'Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head' and six other tracks. (And fortunately none of the versions is the lamentable single recorded by Sacha Distel!)
Composers didn't write scores in the 1960s the way they write them now. No attempt is made here to include ethnic instruments or musical styles from Latin America. This is (North) American popular music through and through, and it is hugely enjoyable.
The stand-out track, to my ears, is 'South American Getaway', a slightly elongated version of the music that accompanies the pair's many bank raids in Bolivia, hotly pursued by growing numbers of mounted police or soldiers. But this is music that stands on its own and would grace any Bacharach album, movie or no movie. Its upbeat wordless vocals are so optimistic, and it would be a joy to see this piece performed live.
The movie marked the end of the 60s. It was perhaps appropriate that the heroes get killed, but that we the cinema-goer, like Sundance's teacher girlfriend, did not quite see the pair die. And the soundtrack also marked the end of Bacharach's compositional brilliance. Bacharach's genius dominated the 60s, but he was only occasionally to regain his form in the 70s and 80s. I believe that his mantle -- for writing optimistic, sophisticated popular music with underlying Latin rhythms -- has been inherited by guitarist Pat Metheny.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Film Score May 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This sountrack is just as fresh today in 2003 as when it was released on L.P. so many years ago. Some of Burt Bacharach's Best Work. You'll notice "South American Getaway" has been recently been used on SBC commercials.

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful if limited piece of work February 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'd not seen this film since its release. The other day my son (a heavy-metal guitarist) saw it, and was raving about a couple of the soundtrack bit. To my surprise, I could recall each one he mentioned. So I ordered the soundtrack.

Yes, it's very good. The only thing that keeps it from five stars is that there are actually only a few themes here and they're re-used in interesting but not spectacular ways. As another reviewer wrote, "South American Getaway" is the standout piece, but "Bicycle Built For Joy" and the main theme are also quite good. Heck, "Raindrops" is good, but it was so damned overplayed when the film came out that I still have a hard time hearing it without reacting to the over-exposure. If you're not pushing 60, you might not have the same problem.

Overall: definitely worth buying. It was money well-spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 Versions Keep Falling On My Head October 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
A remarkably good album for only 9 songs. The songs span several different styles: pop ("Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head"), '60ish scatting ("South American Getaway"), circus music ("On A Bicycle Built For Joy"), old-fashioned brass band ("Old Fun City"), moody harmonica ("Not Goin' Home Anymore"). There are 3 versions of "Raindrops..." here under different song titles. One of these versions (the instrumental one) never appeared in the movie, but the music in the movie's intro (a guitar version of "Not Goin' Home Anymore") doesn't appear on the album. ... B.J.'s voice is hoarse in "On A Bicycle Built For Joy" but surprisingly that somehow makes it sound even better! It would also be great if, like on the M*A*S*H film soundtrack, they added bits of the very cute dialog from the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, and Great Score May 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I've watched this film so many times, and what keeps me coming back is not only the cinematography, but also the music. A lot of the things I like in 60s pop music can be found in this score. Also, I've been listening to a lot of dream/baroque pop recently, and can't help but feel that "South American Getaway(which is one of my favorite tracks, as well as scenes in the film)reminds me of The Free Design.

If you love the film, chances are you will like the soundtrack as well.

Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid.

The heart of the Outlaw's legend is a love story.

Two men solidify their bond through one woman they respect and dote on.

A School Teacher with beautiful long Auburn hair, and big eyes, Etta Place.

Etta is the Hole In The Wall's favorite guest.

The old abandon hideout will have succumb to the ravages of time, but the dirty worn floorboards which needs sweeping and old stove that could use stoking will have absorbed and recorded a lot of her warmth.

Burt Bacharach's Soundtrack captures the dynamic.

Listen to Come Touch The Sun.

Burt Bacharach likes talking about how he had alot to do with inserting Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head into the bike scene.

I guess. Thanks for the astounding lyrics, Hal.

I don't know if anyone has come forward to confess, but the song was nescessary for the audiance to catch their breath.

Etta has been grading school papers, she makes her way across the yard at sundown to her little room, Sundance is waiting for her and startles Etta.

Sundance instructs, "Teacher lady" to let down her hair and undo some buttons at gunpoint, only to find out she likes it as much as him and wonders why he can't get there earlier.

That's a lot of information.

Especially for a boy of ten, fall of '69.

My family was entertaining a Soccer family from out of town.

Dougie and I snuck off to watch the film by ourselves, I'm not sure what I would've done if I was sitting by my parents, shrunk into my seat, I suppose.

As the audiance lets out one big exhale, I can feel the sweeping shots of sun flicker on the audiance while Burt, Hal, B.J.
