    Why Jimmy Van Heusen, one the past century's greatest, has no anthology of his own is hard to explain (publishing rights?). The songs written with Sammy Cahn - the Rat Pack songbook, and more - is widely covered in Warner Bros' "New Sammy Cahn Songbook", but the just as essential (and...

    IMO more constantly good &/or inventive) previous years - mainly his genial collaboration with Johnny Burke and earlier works from the late 30's - are much harder to find. Until the recent publication of the Johnny Burke songbook (available from sheetmusicplus!) the pre-Cahn years were only available in single sheet music and in this small collection called "Songs Of Burke and Van Heusen": there's not a loser in the bunch, and once you've forgotten about the crazy notion of handling a "Burke & Van Heusen Anthology" that would include more than (count them) twelve songs, you'll cherish this small book of great music just the same.
