bette midler's induction speech was really nice
and her son the sensitive brooklyn tough was awesome!

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!

eight months pass...

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.

Her final "roof" is like Gaudi's angel flying off from the top of the steeple.
