Threadcrap . . . that's a new one on me, LOL. You always have definite opinions Harry and you're welcome to them. I don't know what it is about Basia for me - maybe it's partly because of the emotion she conveys. She has written almost all of her material based on her own life experiences and I think it comes across very well. That and I love the way she sings sambas.Lots of love here for Basia. Interesting. Don't want to threadcrap, but she's never been my cup of tea, for some reason.
And I knew I'd forget someone important in my listing earlier in the thread, and thankfully someone else mentioned her, and that's Dionne Warwick. She's simply the voice of Bacharach/David unlike most others. Karen was one of the exceptions, of course.
Dionne Warwick, of course, is the original voice of Bacharach/David songs, and that's what draws me to her. I do love "I'll Never Love this Way Again" however.
