• on broadway: the songs of barry mann & cynthia weil  (CD, £14.25) due 02-03-2018

    Broadway was not just a part of New York's fabled Theatre district, but the place where some of the most timeless Pop Music of the twentieth century was composed. Here, songwriting teams such as Carole King and Gerry Goffin, Burt Bacharach and Hal David penned the songs that would soundtrack the decade from offices on 1619 and 1650 Broadway. Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil were one such team -compositions such as "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'", "On Broadway", "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" (versions of which are all featured here) are now recognised as touchstones in popular music; while in the US alone they boast over 80 charted singles across 5 decades. This collection - spanning 1962 to 1976 - showcases some of Mann & Weil's greatest compositions, alongside equally stellar lesser-known numbers that got lost among the many great recordings issued in the era. 32-page booklet contains track-by-track commentary, illustrated with rare and unpublished photos. No recordings from previous Mann-Weil collections on other labels have been repeated, and six songs appear on CD for the very first time! Tracklisting: 1. The Executives - It's A Happening World 2.
