A mixed bag but hard to quibble with Bacharach

"A mixed bag : All of these tracks are good, but not all are by the artists most associated with the hit recordings one remembers. There is, not surprisingly, an emphasis on artists who recorded for EMI, such as Cilla Black and Shirley Bassey. Still, there is high quality music here and the performers (and performances) are generally first-class. Bacharach fans are accustomed to multiple interpretations of his finest material, so if you enjoy these artists you'll likely enjoy this set."
Hit songs - just not the Hit versions by Hit artisits
Get What We Give | Georgia | 08/26/2007

"It's hard to believe how many hits Burt Bacharach has written. This collection contains 60 of his "greatest hits". I use parentheses, while all the songs here were hits for Bacharach, they are not all the hit versions of those songs. Most of us know the Dionne Warwick version of "I'll never fall in love", instead we have Bobbie Gentry singing it here. Is this a bad thing? No necessarily. However, it may make you yearn for the hit maker versions."
