“Bette Midler Sings the Peggy Lee Songbook”
Part of being a pop singer, and of being Bette Midler in particular, is playing “let’s pretend”: all right, boys and girls, who are we going to be today? Will we play it for laughs or for tears? On the “Peggy Lee Songbook,” Ms. Midler plays it for both, as she revisits 10 songs associated with that great Benny Goodman vocalist turned legendary nightclub singer.

Midler Embraces the Passing of Time and the Greening of a City
By JAMES BARRON
After showing off the community garden with the composting toilet, Bette Midler took stock of things. The conversation had turned to two numbers that figure in her life these days: 60, for the birthday that she is about to celebrate, and 10, the age of the New York Restoration Project, the nonprofit group she started to clean up parks.
(Thanks for sending me the original Darrell)
She started with the birthday. “I was going to get really depressed, and I thought, ‘So what?’ Let’s put a good face on it, because it’s a really good face,” she said, and laughed.

The other night, I was trying to remember when Karen Carpenter, the soothing-voice singer, died. It was 1983, turns out. She was 32. Then, I had to haul out the one Carpenters CD I have and listen to “Superstar,” a great song. Bette Midler’s version is fine, and I remember hearing Bonnie Bramlett, who wrote the lyrics, sing it too (the music is by Leon Russell). Still, Karen Carpenter’s version is hauntingly pretty.
I’m not sure I always understood all the Eagles were going for in “Desperado,” but it’s a song I like listening to. “Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds, boy!/ She’ll beat you if she’s able.” All righty, then.

Looks like the CD release date for Bette’s new project has been pushed back to November 7th in the UK. No word yet on the Dual Disc. This bit of news comes from Jonathan and Sarah (UnlockDivinity.com) I’m not sure what’s going on with the Aussies and the Yukkers with this Dual Disc, but I’m really hoping it makes its way over there…it would be a shame otherwise.
Anyway, thanks for the information, and be sure to check out Unlock Divinity Sarah, I don’t know why, but that name really makes me hungry for something sweet! 🙂
A Private Performance with Bette Midler and Robin Williams – November 19 at The Beacon Theatre – A Special Thanks To Miss P
This is for some lucky New Yorkers and some of you “trashy” people from New Jersey (I’m just repeatin’ what I heard!
My semi-date from Hulaween’s from Jersey, what can I say? 🙂 ) who can make it and it’s for such a divine cause! I really do hope some of you can go:
This is a private performance with Bette Midler and Robin Williams at The Beacon Theatre (Broadway at 74th street), Saturday evening, November 19th @ 7:30 pm. Bette Midler and Robin Willians will share the bill for this up close and personal one hour private benefit performance.

Mister D: The following comes from Mr. Letterman’s blog and it kinda summarizes what he and Ms. Midler talked about last night….altho you just can’t capture the energy and rapport they had going on by just reading this. I was hoping they would have the video up of her performance of “Fever” but so far it’s not there, yet. Anyway, she was really “0n” last night. Energetic interview and performance….you could tell she was having a good time (except for maybe when she ducked for cover when Dave sneezed!…LOL) It was also fun to hear her talk about Hocus Pocus and put those hideous teeth in from the movie. That was a treat. Plus the reference to Disney’s cheapness… 🙂 Well, you know they do play Hocus Pocus incessantly and she doesn’t see a dime! 🙂 All in all, a lot of fun:
