Early Burt Special

"... Hard to believe it, but Burt's been in the songwriting business for 53 years now--his first title on wax was the instrumental "Once in a Blue Moon", recorded by Nat King Cole in 1952. The source for the tune was Anton Rubenstein 's "Melody in F", which Burt adapted with the assistance of his father, syndicated columnist Bert Bacharach! We do not lie.... " tells Lee Hartsfeld at Music You (Possibly) Won't Hear Anyplace Else.
4 tracks being shared rec. between 1952 - 1962 (includes a not that bad version of "(They Long To Be) Close To You" as sang by Richard Chamberlain).
