Promises, Promises Aimi MacDonald & Ronnie Carroll Fontana SFL13192, 1968
Promises, Promises album cover

One of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's smash hit 60s musicals, this soundtrack is taken from the UK London West End cast and is the best recording of the score. Hard to find and issued only in the UK, the best thing about it is the great 60s big band poppy instrumentation and arrangements, not a million miles from the KPM sound. 'Overture' has its moments but doesn't quite hit the mark - the rest of the LP is good if you're a Bacharach fan. Not one for funk fanatics.

Overall Rating: 3

Track listing:

Overture | Half as big as life | Upstairs | You'll think of someone | She likes basketball | Knowing when to leave | Turkey-lurkey time | A fact can be a beautiful thing | Whoever you are | Where can you take a girl | I'll never fall in love again | Promises, promises |
