Burt Bacharach: Post Hal David
Episode date - July 19, 2013
This represents our final show dedicated to Burt Bacharach and his lyricist partner, Hal David. Actually, this show mostly covers the period after Burt and Hal split from one another.
While Burt Bacharach’s career continued over the next few decades in fits and starts, it is rather clear that his latter day work lacked the extraordinary staying power of his work with Hal David.
