Unbelievable that it's here..I went to Tower records in New Orleans several years ago and they said it wasn't available in any format! Anyone know what ever happened to Jill O''hara? I know she was in HAIR too..

The original cast recording of Promises, Promises is searing. Like all seminal Burt Bacharach pieces you'll remember the time and place you first heard it. Promises, Promises hints fantasy fulfillment is right around the corner. With a semi autobiographical touch, who would've thought you'd meet a match who shares your passion for basketball. I'm there. It's a big deal Promises, Promises has made its way to cd. Snatch it.
