For 1976's Songs For The New Depression, Bette Midler proved once again that she was a force in popular music that would truly stand the test of time. Almost four decades later, the album continues to resonate with her millions of fans around the world, and is truly one of the most revered in her extensive catalog of hit albums. Produced by Moogy Klingman (Utopia, Todd Rundgren, Buzzy Linhardt), the masterpiece included some of the finest renditions ever of classic standards like a rockin' disco version of Strangers In The Night, the stunning Arif Mardin arrangement of Patti Page's Old Cape Cod, as well as one of Bette Midler's own penned classics Mr. Rockefeller. Always supporting the upcoming writers and artists, Tom Waits gets represented early on with her brilliant interpretation of Shiver Me Timbers, as well as a knock out Philly soul ballad rendition of Phoebe Snow's I Don't Want The Night To End. Superstars abound on the album like the great Bob Dylan, who lends an artistic hand with his classic BucketsOf Rain, plus friends like Todd Rundgren & Utopia, The Brecker Brothers, and Rick Derringer all play prominent roles in creating one of the coolest albums of the mid 70's. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Elvis Presley, Billy Joel, Todd Rundgren) from the original Atlantic Records tapes, Friday Music is very pleased to offer another fine Bette Midler classic with her 1976 masterwork Songs For The New Depression. Complete with the original LP artwork element, Bette Midler's Songs For The New Depression will be one of this summer's finest re-released gems.....courtesy of Bette Midler and your friends at Friday Music. I Don't Want The Night To End.......
