Totally agree -- not a fan of Bette at all, but her point about Laura's courage was spot on. The performance following was good, too!

Never quite had a handle on where Laura's style came from. Just heard Fontella Bass' version of the Goffin/King song "Oh No, Not My Baby," though, and it doesn't sound unlike her. Maybe she's rooted a fair amount in Brill Building, etc.
