BetteBack 1975: What’s That Song?

Mister D: Of course the song below turned out to be “Gone At Last.” However, it never appeared as a single nor on her album. She was rudely surprised to find that Paul Simon had cut her vocals out and redid the song with Phoebe Snow. This led to a long-standing feud which came to an end during the recording of We Are The World in 1984 ~ Paul Simon’s duet with Bette later appeared as a bonus track demo on his CDStill Crazy After All These Years(?)
