Now Tokyo resident, ex Sonic Youth member Jim O'Rourke has put together a rather wonderful tribute to Burt Bacharach. O'Rourke himself sings on one track - and plays guitar, bass and other instruments on other tracks- as does Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and a superb cast of Japanese musicians such as Haruomi Hosono and Kahimi Kari.
