Live Scores Film Composers

Burt Bacharach

In the sixties, Burt Bacharach was the Hitmaker Man! His songs performed by Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield, Jackie DeShannon, The 5th Dimension and many other artists were instant hits with the lyrics of Hal David. He also scored several soundtracks and appeared in many TV Shows as you can see from this list. It is no surprise that there are recent tributes to him and his music and they are available in DVD format. That he is still active and working relationships with many singers and songwriters is a statement of his appeal as a composer but also as a kind person, we hope that he keep on releasing more projects!

This is a list of the appearances on TV or movies, concerts, interviews, books, article magazines and related material. I am still researching for his works so what you see here is a sample of what would be featured soon.
