Full Circle — Back to Bacharach Purchase CD
Debbie Fleming grew up in the Music Biz singing Bacharach/David tunes in the 60’s when they were first recorded by the likes of Dionne Warwick, Cilla Black, The Carpenters, Dusty Springfield and many others. These songs have been revamped and rearranged by Debbie, and Mark Kieswetter, to give a fresh new approach to old songs – which will never die.
