60 TRACKS ON A 3-CD SET!!

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. Bacharach was named the “greatest living composer” by the Grammy panel that gave him a lifetime achievement award in 2008.

This superb 60-track, 3-CD set contains Bacharach’s most essential and enduring works from the beginning of his career, gathering the great sides he composed between 1955 and 1962. Included here are 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 just a few.
