Burt Bacharach & Paul Anka's TOGETHER? Soundtrack Now Available

Burt Bacharach & Paul Anka's TOGETHER? Soundtrack Now AvailableThe soundtrack for the 1979 Italian/American film collaboration TOGETHER? is now available for the first time in the US thanks to a new remastering of the Burt Bacharach and Paul Anka score which was composed specifically for the American edition of the film.

The official Amazon description of the TOGETHER? soundtrack is as follows: "Sometimes a movie's commercial flop can condemn a great soundtrack to obscurity. Such was the case with director Armenia Balducci's steamy 1979 film Amo non Amo. This Italian drama starring Jacqueline Bisset, Maximilian Schell and Terence Stamp was originally scored by Italian prog/symphonic horror rock band Goblin, but when the film was slated for an American release with the title Together?, the great Burt Bacharach was enlisted to provide a new, more accessible musical score. And Burt delivered along with a bunch of friends! The songs' lyricist was Paul Anka, who wrote lyrics for the dramatic ballads "I Don't Need You Anymore" and "Find Love", both sung by Jackie DeShannon in a sumptuous reunion with Bacharach, and the soulful "I've Got My Mind Made Up", performed by Michael McDonald with splendid orchestral backing. For his part, Bacharach's own instrumental compositions are melodic in his classic fashion but arranged very much in the modernized vein of his late- 70s Futures and Woman albums, with unusual textures and surprising flourishes. This long-lost nugget from the Bacharach catalog makes its worldwide CD debut outside of a limited, high-ticket Japanese edition on Real Gone Music, with notes by Joe Marchese featuring contributions from all of the principals involved and remastering by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios in New York. A must for Bacharach fans!"
