Album review: Burt Bacharach, Anyone Who Had A Heart (Universal)


This six-disc retrospective covers most of the bases from early standards such as “Magic Moments” and “Baby It's You” through to collaborations with Costello and Cullum, sensibly relying on definitive versions by the likes of Dionne and Dusty and Aretha, with just one disc given over to Bacharach's own performances of songs such as “Alfie” and “Trains And Boats And Planes”.

But it's essentially a 1960s experience, as stylish as an episode of Mad Men.
