Rumer’s 2010 single “Some Lovers,” from Burt Bacharach and Steven Sater’s musical of the same name, is the most recent track on Universal U.K.’s new box set Anyone Who Had a Heart: The Art of the Songwriter.
Yet 2010 melts into 1965 like a ray of sunshine on the “cloudy Christmas morning” in the song lyric.
Sleigh bells gently underscore wistful flugelhorns as it begins, with Rumer’s dreamy, comforting vocals gracefully gliding over the bittersweet melody. “Everything we touch is still a dream,” she sings, and for three minutes or so, it is. Even shorn of its lyrics, “Some Lovers” would radiate the warm glow of nostalgia without ever seeming dated.
The music of Burt Bacharach is sophisticated in its composition but simplicity itself in its piercing…
Anyone Who Had a Heart: The Art of the Songwriter has also been released in 2-disc, 40-track versions in both the U.K. and the U.S., with almost completely different track listings for each country. More puzzlingly, there are tracks on both editions that are not on the 6-CD box. Although the unique tracks on the U.S. and U.K. 2-CD versions aren’t particularly rare, it’s still disappointing that a potential buyer interested in all the music would have to buy three different releases to obtain “everything.” One would think a 6-CD box set would cover all of the bases. (Shades of the Steve Winwood box set of a few years back which had unique tracks on the highlights version!) Of these two distillations, the U.S. version is the more eccentric of the two with such surprising, and offbeat, tracks as Sybil’s dancefloor remake of “Don’t Make Me Over,” Smith’s rock cover of “Baby It’s You,” Gloria Gaynor’s disco “Walk On By,” The Marvelettes’ Motown-ized “Message to Michael” and Kevin Eubanks’ smooth jazz “That’s What Friends Are For.” (“On My Own” makes its only appearance here.) The U.K. edition is a more straightforward “Greatest Hits,” with some Brit-centric choices like Adam Faith’s “Message to Martha” replacing The Marvelettes’ on the American 2-CD set and Marlene Dietrich’s (in German, no less!) on the box set. Cilla Black does “Alfie” on the U.K. set - as does Barbra Streisand - but only Streisand gets the slot on the U.S. version. Both Streisand and Nancy Wilson’s “Alfie” are on the box set! Bacharach and David’s muse Dionne Warwick has three songs on the British set, but only one on the American counterpart. Some of the alterations are sensible; others seem made at random. (Why are two versions of “Alfie” featured on one compilation with only 40 songs out of literally hundreds to choose from?) The U.S. version has a remastering credit for Mark Omann at UMS-W in Los Angeles.
