The legendary Bette Midler will celebrate the release of her new album, Bette Midler Sings The Peggy Lee Songbook, with her New York area fans at a rare in-store appearance at Tower Records (Broadway and 4th Street, Manhattan) on Tuesday, October 25, beginning at 7 pm.
Bette Midler will sign copies of Bette Midler Sings The Peggy Lee Songbook, which is being released as both a traditional CD and as a DualDisc.
Bette Midler Sings The Peggy Lee Songbook reunites Bette with producer Barry Manilow, her original piano accompanist and musical director. In 2003, Manilow -- who produced Midler's first two breakthrough albums, Divine Ms. M (1972) and Bette Midler (1973) -- helmed Bette's Grammy-nominated RIAA gold-certified Columbia Records debut, Bette Midler Sings The Rosemary Clooney Songbook, her highest-charting album of the SoundScan era.
Bette Midler Sings The Peggy Lee Songbook pays tribute to the enduring brilliance and fantastic range of one of the most alluring female jazz vocal stylists of all time, Miss Peggy Lee. Bette Midler conjures soulful interpretations of Peggy Lee's most memorable songs including the Grammy-winning signature tunes "Fever" and "Is That All There Is?" as well as "Alright, Okay, You Win," "I Love Being Here With You" (duet with Barry Manilow), "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe," "I'm A Woman," "He's A Tramp," "The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "Big Spender," and "Mr. Wonderful."
