Format: Audio CD
This is an extremely well put together CD, since it avoids all the better known Bacharach hits and will therefore appeal to anyone who has these and would like to explore Burt's work a little more deeply. I haven't heard of many of the artists, let alone the records, so on a CD like this, it is essential to include a comprehensive explanatory booklet, and I'm pleased to say that the CD does have a 24-page book giving details of many of the artists and including pictures of the relevant record labels. I've not come across Rare Rockin' Records, (who issued the CD), before, but if it is their intention to concentrate on obscurities of the 50s and 60s it will be well worth keeping an eye on their releases.

This is not the only CD to feature lesser known recordings of Bacharach songs. Raven records issued a 53 track double CD called The Rare Bacharach 1, (which indicates there is, or is to be, a second volume). Unlike the Rare Rockin' Records CD this one includes several British recordings.

A third CD of less well-known Bacharach recordings was recently released by Ace records called Always Something There. So in total that means 111 recordings of not-so-well-known Bacharach recordings have become available. Unless I've missed any, I could only spot 1 duplicate track among all 3 CDs. That means if you buy all three and also a CD of his hits, you'll have a pretty comprehensive collection of Bacharach songs. Put on random play on a multi-CD player, that would add up to a whole evening of excellent background music.

The Rare Bacharach- THE EARLY YEARS 1958-1965, 32 Obscure Recordings from the early years including Rare Demos, Songwriter Master Series, Rare Rockin Records Production, 2009, 29 Artist, 4 Songwriting Collaborators.

Rare Bacharach THE EARLY YEARS 1958-1965 is a very important collection of songs, it is the follow up to Rare Bacharach 1, songs licensed through AMCOS, two titles that are a wonderful companion piece along side a number of early works compiled for compact disc.

Always Something There To Remind Me: A Burt Bacharach Collector's Anthology 1952-'69, Burt Bacharach The First Book Of Songs 1954-'58.

I would like to thank the makers of this CD for their commitment to quality.

It was the first time I got a similar inconvenience having been an excellent customer of yours ( thousand pounds spent in more than 5 years of fidelity ) .Rare Bacharach(The Early Years 1958-1965)

Very nice collection sourced from vinyl 15 Mar 2010
By dkamil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The first thing prospective buyers of this disc should know is that all tracks have been transfered from vinyl sources. To their credit, the compilers of the CD have plainly stated this fact on the back of the jewel case. Of course, the chance to read the disclaimer is lost if one is shopping online.

That being said, the sound of most tracks is not that bad, with only a few coming up just a bit short. One thing I really like is that the people behind this release (out of Australia) went to the effort to provide detailed annotation and liner notes (which is not always the case). The track listing includes original release number and year of release, with the booklet including pictures of many of the labels and a few picture sleeves. The liner notes do a good job of placing these recordings in the context of Burt's career, and there is background info on the artists as well as each particular recording in the collection. Often, they discuss the talent behind the scenes, including any involvement by Burt himself. At least some of this information they seem to have gleaned from the record labels.

The bottom line is, if you are a true devotee of the music of Burt Bacharach you are going to want to have this CD. The great majority of these tracks I had never heard before, and I imagine they would be very hard, if not impossible, to find elsewhere. Some of these are first recordings of Bacharach songs, a couple are listed as demos, some are interesting cover versions. Most are in the pop vein typical of the time period, with some having more of an R&B flavor and many exhibiting recognizable elements of the classic Bacharach sound.

For the Bacharach collector, this is a treasure. For the more casual fan, they probably should seek out one of the many collections of his better-known work first.

A Better Bacharach Collection 11 Dec 2009
By Mike Rophone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There are several Bacharach compliation CDs out there of Burt's early and lesser-known works. Most include songs you're likely to listen to once and put on the shelf as a collector's item or a Bacharach completist CD.

This CD is different, in that it features early songs that could very well have become hits with enough radio air play and exposure. A few of these songs even have hints of melodies that later became popular standards of the Bacharach/David team.

I'm not a Bacharach scholar, but a retired DJ from the days of Burt's enormous popularity. If it's any recommendation, I've found myself listening to this CD many times since first purchasing it on Amazon. These early-in-his-career songs are catchy and fun to listen to, even for this jaded DJ who played Burt's mainstream hits over and over and over again on the air.

Rare and Good 10 Dec 2010
By Phillip J. Steer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Great collection of early, & predominantly lesser known, Bacharach songs with all the arrangements & tunefulness that is distinctive of his best work. Amazing that a lot of these songs from early 60's were chart failures, `b' sides or by second stringers.

Burt's Forever 28 Jan 2011
By Joseph - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Somebody (not Einstein) once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I say that the definition of genius is doing the same thing over and over again and achieving different results. That's Bacharach in a nutshell. This collection is a must-have for those of us who can't get enough of BB doing the same thing over and over again and is easily on a par with the Raven Records 'Rare' compilation . Personally, I almost prefer to hear the obscurities and throwaways to the better known productions. And why can't I get 'JOANIE'S FOREVER' out of my head?
