One thought on “Yesterday, the music world lost one of it’s legends, Leon Russell. Here is Bette Midler performing his composition, Superstar, from Burt Bacharach’s special in 1973, Opus 3

  1. This version of Superstar is the absolute best (so sorry, Divine Miss M Deluxe Edition), and very glad you posted it again for all to hear. I also love how it segues into the Burt Bacharach instrumental–can never seem to find this “long” version on YouTube, but I don’t know how any one cannot feel an emotional connection after listening to this. It’s the moment when you realize that Bette can create an impact with every word in the song–and that a great actress was born. Her interpretive skills are beyond compare. R.I.P. Leon Russell
