Warwick, Dionne / B.J. Thomas / Jackie De Shannon / Bobby Vinton - Tribute To Burt Bacharach Tribute To Burt Bacharach
Pop New - LP SPS 5100 Scepter
Sealed 1972 Original, COH. “While Reading About The Rich History Of The Composer/Conductor/Arranger, Listening To This Magnificent Album Is An Easy Task. "Anyone Who Had A Heart" Is Certainly One Of Dionne Warwick's Most Dramatic Numbers. But That Take Didn't Have Gene Pitney's "Only Love Can Break A Heart" Follow It As This Album Does, Which In Turn Is Followed By Dusty Springfield Doing "This Girl's In Love With You." Now That Trio Of Performances Is Tough For Anyone To Beat, And When This Was Compiled, The Powers That Be At Scepter Probably Didn't Realize What A Compilation Masterpiece They Were In The Process Of Producing. A Critic Can Gush About This New Album And Tear Apart That, But Everyone Who Putsa Tribute To Burt Bacharach: Composer, Arranger, Conductor On The Turntable And Should Realize That It Is A Precious Work Of Art, A Fine Wine That Should Be Treasured And Put In A Special Place On The Mantlepiece. Eight Of The Fifteen Tracks Were Licensed From Other Labels, And It Is A Shame This Didn't Take The World By Storm, Because If You Go Track By Track It Rivals Carole King's Tapestry As A Listenable And Essential Document Of This Period In Music. Timi Yuro's Powerhouse Voice Follows "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" With Her Thunderous "The Love Of A Boy," Which Is Just Total Contrast, And Add Jerry Butler Performing "Make It Easy On Yourself," Chuck Jackson On "Any Day Now," Along With Jackie Deshannon's "What The World Needs Now Is Love" And You Find Balance And Integrity In These Grooves. The Depth Of Bacharach's Catalog And Production Work Is Presented In Clever Fashion Here. It’s One Of Those Rare Moments When An Artist's Songs Come Together In A Magical Combination That Works So Well, That The Only Word To Describe The Experience Is Genius. Burt Bacharach Is Pure Genius, And This Obscure Early-'70s Album Is Exhibit A.” Joe Viglione, All Music Guide... more details
