Burt Bacharach and Tonio K: Original Demos, just released by the Spanish label Contante y Sonante and authorized by both songwriters, is the first exploration of their collaboration – and it doesn’t disappoint. Its 14 fully-produced demo recordings are all previously unreleased, and feature such talents as Brian Wilson, Dr. Dre, and Bill Champlin.
Burt Bacharach & Tonio K 'Original Demos' features the voice of Bill Champlin on the beautiful 'Count On Me'. Impeccably produced by Ted Perlman, Bill's glorious performance infuses strength and soul into the song, making it one of the stand-out tracks on the album. We're delighted to know that Bill has received one of the very last copies of the album and he's loving it.
BURT BACHARACH AND TONIO K – ORIGINAL DEMOS (2017): What do you get when you put a pop songwriting legend with a contemporary songstress? Hit song after hit song? Original Demos is just that. These 14 songs, presented in their raw demo form, reveal Burt Bacharach’s true musical craft and wonder. If I Should Lose You is the first composition of the songwriting duo, and is a gem. The song, notably recorded by Chicago as an added studio track to Chicago XXVI: The Live Album, still retains its intensity even as a demo, where it was sung by Billy Valentine. Never Take That Chance Again is even.
