This cd has the original recordings of Bacharach songs. They are all very dated but if you appreciate his melodies and variety of moods, you'll love this,

I love this music, sort of a soundtrack of my 20's and it was great to hear them again. Bachrach is great.

I bought this album when it was offered at Starbucks....and I was not disappointed! All the songs bring back memories from the past. Each song is masterfully recorded, and listening to it makes you appreciate Bacharach's awesome talent.

Now this one's a keeper, so good that it sits in my car on a semi-permanent basis to help set up my day.

The Bacharach/David collaboration spawned more memorable hits than could possibly fit on a single CD, perhaps even two. Thus my procrastination in purchasing any such CD, as I dawdled on Amazon and at Borders, combing through all variety of offerings to find just the right mix of my own all-time favorites. I still haven't found the perfect mix - probably never will - but this one comes extraordinarily close. ("Promises, Promises" and "Raindrops" didn't make the cut. Nuts.)

The opener, "Don't Make Me Over", was Dionne Warwick's breakout hit with Bacharach/David and ensured a long-running relationship and steady stream of chart-toppers. That slight off-beat hesitation (in a way like Sinatra) makes all the difference in the world. And she's back several tracks later with one of my all-time favorite teen-decade solos, "Walk On By", with those lush Bacharach strings. Jackie DeShannon takes us from bittersweet lyrics to halcyon ones with "What the World Needs Now", which could easily have morphed into an over-the-top saccharine ditty were it created by less gifted hands. "The Look of Love", from Brasil 66, doesn't provide us with the smoky sax of the original version, but instead offers up a delightful, pulsating Latin treatment with great vocals. And then, two back-to-back startlers - a highly stylized, aching rendition of "Anyone Who Had a Heart" by Ronald Isley and an equally agonized confessional from Elvis Costello. To take us down from these two windows into the soul, the producers leave us with the soft, stage-exiting "Windows of the World", a Sixties-flavored instrumental if there ever was one.

I stumbled upon this CD while placing an order at the Starbucks on the mezzanine of the U.S. Steel headquarters in Pittsburgh, carefully examined its contents, and snatched it up. There were only two left. Don't miss out on Amazon.
