Burt Bacharach: Make it Easy on Yourself 1962 - Various Artists

Burt Bacharach: Make it Easy on Yourself 1962
·       Third in El's series of Burt Bacharach composer anthologies following The First Book of Songs 1954-58 (ACMEM166CD) and Long Ago Last Summer 1959-61 (ACMEM233CD)
 
·       All of these recordings were released in 1962, a time in which Bacharach was at last - after years of unhappy compromise - beginning to be able to exert some control over the arranging and recording and finished presentation of his compositions
 
·       The advantages of Bacharach's personal supervision was evidenced by such memorable hits as Jerry Butler's 'Make It Easy on Yourself' which reached number 20 on the Billboard Top100, Chuck Jackson's ‘Any Day Now’, and the first recording of the beautiful ‘I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself’ performed by former Flamingos vocalist Tommy Hunt. ‘Love of A Boy’ by Timi Yuro, The Shirelles, ‘It's Love That Really Counts (In The Long Run)’ and ‘Forgive Me (For Giving You Such a Bad Time)’ by Babs Tino, were other Burt Bacharach - Hal David compositions that charted that year.
 
·       Beside the hits, our edition also contains a number of Bacharach rarities; the only known recording of Marlene Dietrich performing a Bacharach song, ‘Kleine Treue Nachtigall’ (Small True Nightingale), soon to be more widely known as ‘Message to Michael’; a French version of ‘Too Late to Worry’ (Donne-Moi Ma Chance), sung by Sophia Loren, and the Drifters' ‘Mexican Divorce’, a classy but obscure flip-side session, where, among the backing singers, Bacharach encountered for the first time a certain Dionne Warrick (Warwick).
 
·       1962 found the duo that would revolutionise popular songwriting, establishing their style and getting into their stride. Within months they would commit to working together exclusively...

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’. Our Price: £9.95

The Miraculous Tamba Trio
Propelled by the extraordinary piano playing and arranging skills of Luíz Eça, Tamba Trio are characterized by their very original and highly attractive blending of left field Bossa grooves and almost sacred vocal harmonies.

An important landmark in the evolution of modern Brazilian music and far ahead of its time.

Long Ago Last Summer 1959-61
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.

Bacharach won the respect of everyone from Brian Wilson to Bill Evans to Frank Zappa, but his early years had been ones of struggle and frustrating compromise. This compilation continues where the 2009 El Records edition, "Burt Bacharach - The First Book of Songs" (ACMEM166CD), left off and charts Bacharach's course as we move into the more open sixties landscape.

The set comprises an eclectic range of styles that have character, are fun and are thoroughly eccentric at times. Standout tracks include Gloria Lambert's slinky romantic space-age liason, ‘Moon Man’; Dick Van Dyke's, early version of ‘Three Wheels On My Wagon’; Paul Hampton's whimsical continental-sounding ‘Creams’; ‘Somebody Else's Sweetheart’, a big hit on the Northern Soul Scene for The Wanderers; The Four Coins' soaring, spirited ‘Miracle of St Marie’ and ‘Baby It's You’ by the Shirelles, an R&B and mainstream pop smash with a vocal arrangement adopted by The Beatles for the version that would be an integral part of their early repertoire.

Press:-


"More eclectic and less distinctive than his later work, this collection of Burt Bacharach songs - most with lyrics by his long-term collaborator Hal David - is nevertheless a delightful collection from the turn of the 1960's, cramming no fewer than 33 songs onto a single CD.
