Bette On The Boards
December 20, 2010
To celebrate the holidays this year we have dug up a rare recording of Bette performing the classic Christmas song “I Wish I Had A River” by Joni Mitchell during one of her many farewell performances at the Continental Baths in New York City on December 4, 1971. Barry Manilow, Kevin Ellman and Michael Federal make up the band.
Boob Tube Update
A rare student documentary from the early 80’s entitled “Divine Inspiration” as been added to the player. This was a film on Bette Midler and her fans. Many integral people from Bette’s early career were interviewed in this film, including Richard Amsel, Billy Cunningham, Gary Herb, Sharon Redd, Ula Hedwig, as well as a few of the most notorious fans from the day.
