As well as hanging upon every word and composer's insight from maestro Bacharach himself, each and every song is a delight to the ears.
I found the not-so-well-known songs, some of which I hadn't heard before, every bit as enjoyable as his many chart-topping hits. Being in Australia I was unfamiliar with all of the singers, and liked their interpretations.
I loved hearing Hal David's lyrics all over again, and admire their content as well as the way that words and music blend so well, in both slow-tempo and fast-tempo songs.
The BBC concert production was excellent, as always. For me the only jarring note was that the host at times came across as rather loud and a bit overpowering (compared with the softly-spoken maestro).
