The Flip Side

Back in the days of records, producers had an A side and a B side, or flip side. They usually put equally powerful songs on the B side, but sometimes they would put throw away songs on the back.

One of my favorite flip sides is “Warm and Tender” by Burt Bacharach and Syd Shaw (Hal David is also credited for the lyrics of this song).  Johnny Mathis did this song on the flip side of “It’s Not For Me To Say” which went to number one. “Warm and Tender” remained on the B side and was on Johnny Mathis’ greatest hits.

Personally, I like “Warm and Tender” better. It’s just…..warm and tender.
