Muze PNote If you're at a loss for context, think of Bacharach as the American Jobim. Like his Brazilian counterpart, he combined the influences of jazz and 20th Century classical music with a penchant for odd harmonies and meters, all made palatable by an uncanny gift for infectious melodies. Again like Jobim, Bacharach was more a composer than a performer, and he usually left the singing to professionals (we won't get into the Astrud Gilberto/Dionne Warwick parallels).
Muze PNote The Bacharach tunes presented on this three-disc retrospective are the original hit versions as sung by the likes of Warwick, Tom Jones, the Carpenters and others. Over the course of this set, what becomes clear (besides the ungodly bankroll Burt must have amassed via these compositions) is the consistent merging of innovation with pure pop appeal. Perhaps only the Beatles ever pulled off that combo with equal panache.
