FOCUS: Love is the heart of God's commandments. Today's reading from Acts describes one of the struggles of the early Christian community. Most of Jesus' first followers were Jews. As Paul and Barnabas began sharing the Good News with non-Jews, many of them also accepted Christ. Some insisted that these Gentile converts also follow Jewish laws and regulations. Paul and Barnabas met with Church leaders to discuss this. The Apostle Peter had witnessed God pouring out the Holy Spirit on Gentile converts. He reminded the others that God had treated Jewish and Gentile believers the same. Peter affirmed that those with sincere hearts—Jews and non-Jews alike—are saved through faith in the grace of God. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the early Church was led to conclude that since God made no distinction based on Jewish religious observances, neither should the Church. In doing this, they were acting on the principle found in today's Gospel. In his parting words, Jesus did not map out detailed require ...

After building up a following in local Hollywood clubs and numerous personnel changes (original member John Fleckenstein left to become a cinematographer) and name changes (The American Four, The Grass Roots), the Los Angeles band Love were poised to conquer the world, but while the music was beyond worthy, fate was cruel and did not give them the ginormous success they were so deserving of back in the '60s. Lead man Arthur Lee had natural talent going for him, and the right players. Their first album had them in a decidedly Folk Rock mode, becoming masters of the form after The Byrds hit it big in 1965. Their version of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's "My Little Red Book" is more stomping, and maybe more deliciously sinister-sounding than Manfred Mann's more ornate version. "Can't Explain", "My Flash On You" (in a vein not far removed from The Leaves' version of "Hey Joe", it also has a nice bass solo by Ken Forssi), "No Matter What You Do", "You I'll Be Following"(one can travel the world, but when you f ...
2/17/14-The Look Of Love-Dusty Springfield-1967-This Burt Bacharach & Hal David composition was featured in the movie Casino Royale (with David Niven & Peter Sellers.) Dusty was my favorite female vocalist of the 60's and her version of this tune showcases her unique vocal style. She had already achieved the status of royalty among her British Invasion peers her inimitable style. With her storied beehive hairdo , heavy eyeliner and Carnaby Street wardrobe, Dusty defined the look of the era. Had her start with her brother Tom in the folk group The Springfields (Silver Threads And Golden Needles). I also enjoyed the Sergio Mendes And Brasil '66 version which charted later on in '68.

I translated this beautiful Burt Bacharach & Hal David 's song from English into Japanese. 『Alfie』
"Burt Bacharach and Hal David: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize," A star-studded tribute to the songwriting team who penned such classic tunes as "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," "What The World Needs Now is Love," "Walk on By" and "Alfie."
'What The World Needs Now Is Love' is one of my fave Burt Bacarach/Hal David numbers (when sung by Jackie Deshannon/Dionne Warwick)
