BURT BACHARACH Essential Recordings 1955-1962 - A multi-faceted composer, the great Burt Bacharach (born in 1928, he is 88 at this writing) has enjoyed major hits in numerous musical styles, including Top-40, pop, soul, R&B, jazz, bossa-nova, country, and movie soundtracks. He has also collaborated with a host of major lyricists, including Hal David and Bob Hilliard.
