Lyn Collins “Don't Make Me Over”
from Mama Feelgood - The Best of Lyn Collins (Spectrum 2005) —This goes out in tribute to Hal David - one of America's greatest songwriters - who just passed away at the age of 91. I know I played this 1974 version of this Hal David/Burt Bacharach composition a few weeks back but how could I not play it for this?
The Sweet Inspirations “Let Me Be Lonely”
from What The World Needs Now Is...Burt (Rhino 2006) —Written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David and originally released on Atlantic in 1969. For a really nice & well thought out tribute to Hal David, go to Christian Schaeffer's RFT article at http://tinyurl.com/d9ftxym
Gladys Knight & The Pips “One Less Bell to Answer”
from Motown Legends: Gladys Knight & The Pips (Motown Record Company L.P. 1993) —There might be soul singers as good as Gladys Knight but there aren't any soul singers better than Gladys Knight. Written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David and recorded for Motown in 1971.
Roy Hamilton “Reach Out For Me”
from Dark End Of The Street 1963-69: The Operatic Soul of Roy Hamilton (Raven 2009) —Hal David/Burt Bacharach composition recorded in 1965. Sublime.

from The Shirelles Anthology: Will You Love Me Tomorrow? (Castle 2005) —1962 Scepter b-side written by Hal David & Burt Bacharach, produced by Leiber & Stoller, and arranged by Burt Bacharach. That's a whole lot of talent.
