EU-only two CD compilation. a multi-faceted composer, the great Burt Bacharach 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. This quintessential collection contains Bacharach's most essential and enduring works from the beginning of his career, gathering a variety of the great sides he composed (and in several cases, also arranged) for different labels between 1955 and 1962. This set boasts classics like Dionne Warwick's 'Don't Make Me Over,' Gene Pitney's 'Only Love Can Break a Heart,' Tommy Hunt's 'I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself,' and the Shirelles' 'Baby It's You,' to name a few. This release also contains lesser-heard tracks which are just as enjoyable as the hits. All of this material represents a formidable slice of popular culture and allows you to experience some of the finest gems of the pop and soul genres.
