The melody for 1967’s Bacharach/David classic “The Look of Love” was inspired by Bond Girl Ursula Andress; and that iconic melody has inspired countless artists to record their own versions of the song. Reclaimed Soul’s Ayana Contreras brings us a selection of soulful vintage covers of “The Look of Love”. Plus, we hear groovy covers of other Bacharach compositions, as well (like “Walk on By” and “I Say a Little Prayer”).
