Audio: Bette Midler – Tenterfield Saddler
– Australia – 2004



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.

  1. To me, “Tenterfield Saddler” is one of the quintessential Bette-performances. I prefer (love!!!) the original tribute version (which includes her irresistable humor in sharp contrasts with heartfelt sadness) but I also like this version. I wish she’d record it properly… Speaking of “essence-” performances that were not recorded for an album: “Here comes the Flood” and “Broken Bicycles”, “Everybody knows”. (And if you read this: RECORD THEM, BETTE!) My favorites: “I shall be released” from Divine Madness – and I for some reasons the very classy “He was too good to me – Since you stayed here” from “Some People’s Lives” that makes me cry every single time…

    1. Oh my, I loved every song you mentioned. I remember thinking all those songs from the second half of Art or Bust we’re going to be on No Frills and I was so disappointed
