Trivia & History

The January 1969 issue of Playbill featured an article titled "Burt Bacharach." Here's a quotation from Bacharach that was in the article: "Some nights some songs work better than others. The human element is so large in the theatre. If you are making a record, as soon as you have it right, it's on tape — preserved. In the theatre, it's right tonight but tomorrow is another story. The lead trumpet player's lip may be bad, the tempos could be off, the singer may have a cold . . . it's nerve-wracking, but you have to adjust."
