Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head - Living Marimbas

Walk On By
Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head
And Other Bacharach David Hits
Living Marimbas
Arranged and Conducted by Leo Addeo
Produced by Ethel Gabriel
RCA Camden CAS - 2400

It seems as though everyone covered Bacharach. I wonder why the Living Marimbas logo printed so small that it is all but hidden from view on the jacket?

Back in the day RCA wasn't sure how to market the curious blend of Bacbarach/David, "now sound light pop" and, well Living Marimbas.

The bicycle on the cover must be a film reference.

Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head
This Guy's In Love With You
Do You Know The Way To San Jose
Walk On By
I'll Never Fall In Love Again
I Say A Little Prayer
What The World Needs Now Is Love
The Window Of The World


  1. Possibly because of the bicycle scene in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head" was featured in the movie.

  2. Perhaps a bit odd that wordsmith Hal David would be mentioned on an all-instrumental LP, but I guess Bacharach & David were cemented together in the public eye, so not really that unusual.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
