Classic Engelbert II

On the 2007 DVD, Engelbert Humperdinck: Greatest Hits 1967-1977, Engelbert notes the following of his recording of “I’m a Better Man (For Having Loved You)”:

It was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David and I happened to get hold [of it] in my early career. Of course, to be involved with a Burt Bacharach and Hal David song is outstanding, so I was thrilled by that. Although it didn’t do great as far as the charts – it did climb into the Top Ten, which was rather wonderful. The lyrical content and the melody was absolutely fantastic. It’s one of my favorite songs up to this day.
