Long before Mike Myers’ Austin Powers character idolized him on film, Burt Bacharach was the quintessential golden boy of pop music. He studied with French composer Darius Milhaud (as had jazz legend Dave Brubeck), he backed up Marlene Dietrich (something Brubeck didn’t). He composed hit after hit after hit after hit for movies and singers; he pretty much launched Dionne Warwick single-handedly (well, double-handedly, with the help of lyricist Hal David). He was where everyone wanted to be, with everyone that everyone wanted to be with, making the scene and making the scene his.

How do you fit all that musical goodness into five compact discs?

Focus.


Our collection is Burt being Burt, occasionally with a guest vocal where called for, but mostly the man in his own voice, conducting and playing and just generally being his luminous self. Scan the track list for song titles you don’t know; there won’t be all that many. It’s impossible to believe that the man is three quarters of a century old, yet this collection dates back to the early Sixties, and bookends his performing career on one end with his Kapp recordings and on the other with A&M masters.

Lotsa rare and previously-unreleased recordings, amazing liner notes by Lauren Oliver, Phil Ramone and Richard Carpenter, incredible photos and much love went into this big bouquet for America’s premier pop songwriter of the last half-century. Yeah, baby!

Part of a series of high quality limited edition foil stamped 7-3/4" x 6-1/4" cloth bound books.

Hip-Ocrates Says...

DID YOU KNOW? Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones appear as session musicians on Burt’s Hit Maker! album from 1965.
