The First Book of Songs 1954-58 - Burt Bacharach

The First Book of Songs 1954-58
Released 16th February 2009. Burt Bacharach revolutionised popular songwriting, employing a previously unimagined technical sophistication that would find full expression in the sixties when with an astonishing run of unforgettable hits, he and his lyricist partner Hal David, ruled the pop charts. The Prince of popular music, Bacharach was now respected by everyone from Brian Wilson to Bill Evans to Frank Zappa, but his early years had been ones of struggle and frustrating compromise. This collection offers fascinating glimpses of an eclectic apprenticeship that culminated in the landmark first hits ‘Magic Moments’ and ‘The Story of My Life’.
