Kennedy Center Honors: Our top 50 recommendations who need to be chosen include Dick Van Dyke, Liza Minnelli, Jessica Lange, Bette Midler

Mister D: Ok, I admit that I’m prejudiced, but this list could be whittled down in seconds for me. My standards are high, well in some things, and some of these people don’t really belong on this list.

Bette Midler, Jason Isbell Join Statement to Congress Urging CLASSICS Act Passage

Billboard
Bette Midler, Jason Isbell Join Statement to Congress Urging CLASSICS Act Passage
12/20/2017 by Billboard Staff

A group of more than 40 artists, including Jason IsbellEmmylou HarrisHenry Rollins and Bette Midler, have signed a letter to Congress urging them to pass the CLASSICS Act, which would require digital radio services such as SiriusXM to pay royalties on pre-1972 sound recordings.

“Digital radio makes billions of dollars a year from airplay of music made before 1972,” the artists wrote. “Yet, because of an ambiguity in state and federal copyright laws, artists and copyright owners who created that music receive nothing for the use of their work. The ‘CLASSICS Act’ would correct this inequity and finally ensure that musicians and vocalists who made those timeless songs finally get their due. We urge Congress to pass the CLASSICS Act and other pro-artist reforms quickly.” Read More

They fight for justice, and we cheer. They slash out in anger, and we cringe. From The Women to The Help, and from Carrie to Lady Vengeance, we honor a dozen movies that brandish female fury.

It’s a story as old as the Greeks’ Medea and as modern as any YA novel-turned-film, whether The Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games or Divergent. We present a dozen movies, from Hollywood, France and South Korea, that treat the vengeful-woman theme with fondness or dread, as comedy, melodrama or stark tragedy. You’ll think of other films, too.

BetteBack 1976: Songs For The New Depression Lacks Old Excitement (February 22, 1976)

Gazette Mail
Midler’s latest album lacks old excitement
By Jim Carnes
February 22, 1976

Some performers, once they find a formula that works, stick with it through successive albums. That’s what Emmylou Harris has done (we’ll discuss her latest. Elite Hotel, a little later), and that’s what Tom Jones (Memories Don’t Leave Like People Do) and Black Oak Arkansas (Lite Mutha) have done.

Not so, however. Bette Midler. The only thing standard about her latest album Songs for the New Depression (Atlantic SD18155). is the way the singer will attack any material, old or new. On this set/songs range from ‘Ol Cape Cod to Strangers in the Night with a duet with Bob Dylan on his Buckets of Rain thrown in. Read More
