Classics like "Baby It's You," "Walk On By," "What the World Needs Now Is Love," and "Wishin' and Hopin'" are here, of course. What really makes this exceptional by box set standards, however, is the deft intermingling of familiar smash hits with interesting minor hits and rarities. Certainly there's more Bacharach/David worth hearing; the first places to start after getting through this are vintage Dionne Warwick compilations. For a rich but manageable anthology of his best work, though, it could hardly be bettered, enhanced by nearly 100 pages of liner notes and track annotations.
Although it doesn't contain every great song Burt Bacharach ever wrote, the various-artists collection The Look of Love: The Classic Songs of Burt Bacharach is a wonderful sampling of his best moments.
Hasbrook Heights - Burt Bacharach (3:11) 16. The Balance of Nature - Dionne Warwicke (3:26) 17. Living Together, Growing Together - The 5th Dimension (3:50) 18. You'll Never Get to Heaven (If You Break My Heart) - The Stylistics (3:39) 19.
The Look Of Love - Dusty Springfield. 2. Do You Know The Way To San Jose - Dionne Warwick. 3. This Guy's In Love With You - Herb Alpert. Generally, the US version favors the original artists (either the first to record the song or the first to make it a hit) while the UK version replaces some of these with British artists to appeal to a British audience. I've heard both sets and I prefer the American versions in most cases. The original version of this album is understandably out of print and was produced by Patrick Milligan of Rhino Records in 1998. I've actually got quite a few of these songs on 45RPM or 33LP, but now I'm dating myself!).
