There is something about Miami that captures the soul of an artist.

Maybe it’s colorful neighborhoods awash in tropical colors and scents? Maybe it’s the sultry beaches and nightlife of Miami Beach? Maybe it’s the eclectic nature of the people who inhabit this stretch of land between the Florida Everglades and the mighty Atlantic Ocean?

Or, it could be a combination of the three?

Audio: Tenterfield Saddler -Bette Midler – Kiss My Brass – Australia – 2005 – (The Real One)

Mister D: This version is quite different than the Peter Allen tribute. Mainly the key changes and the addition of the Harlettes. It really does bring the song to life and, yes, I would say it makes it more emotional and dramatic. I just wish the sound quality was better.

Audio: Bette Midler - Tenterfield Saddler - Kiss My Brass Down Under - 2004

Update: I originally had this listed as the KMB version, but with a couple of people bringing things to my attention and listening to the tape, I’m convinced it was the Tribute and she got a do-over. I do have the Down Under tape somewhere because I’ve posted it before. I promise i will do my best to find it. Sorry, I know this is disappointing to some of you, so but it still is a beautiful version, Now I shall continue my ques

Video: Bette Midler: Bootleg Betty: Rainbow Sleeve – Divine Madness

This is a Tom Waits song Bette sang in Divine Madness that was left off the soundtrack. A gem of a song. She has always been his best interpreter. It just seems logical for her to record an album of his tunes.
