Loser's Lounge: Burt Bacharach

Loser's Lounge returns to its roots with another Burt Bacharach tribute at Joe's Pub on December 18 (Thursday, 9:30pm), 19 (Friday, 7pm and 9:30pm), and 20 (Saturday, 7pm and 9:30pm).

Here's a kind of proto-Loser's Lounge tribute from the TV variety show The Hollywood Palace (December 12, 1967). Yes, there's a fair share of smarminess, but if you're patient you'll hear Liza Minnelli, Wes Montgomery, and Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66 as well as Herb Alpert. I only wish the performances weren't such teases!
