Synopsis

Amazon.com
Bernadette Peters opens this self-titled album with her usual "Broadway Baby" and includes some other show tunes, but she also samples country and rock & roll, accompanied by small combos, piano, or guitar. While it's a little different from what her fans are used to hearing, this ballad-heavy album shows Peters at her torchy best. The 50-minute CD, released in 1992, is a combination of tracks from her 1980 solo debut album and 1981's Now Playing. And that's an authentic Vargas portrait on the cover. --David Horiuchi

CD Reviews

Prime Peters
Bruce Kofoed | Twin Falls, ID, USA | 04/16/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recorded during Peters' prime, this album is a wonderful foray into pop songs rather than Broadway. Combining selections from two LPs issued in the late '70s, it allows Peters to showcase her great range of expressiveness and vocal resources. My only regret is what I call the "Cuban" song from one of the LPs did not make the final cut onto the CD. What is here are very good '60s and '70s pop songs covering a wide emotional range performed all out by one of the best voices of her generation."
I Don't Know Why I Just Do
David M. Garens | Canton, Ohio United States | 10/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are parts of this recording that will get to you. Like the medley "I Don"t Know Why/Mean to Me". You really feel for the gal depicted in the song, and that takes real singing and real acting. In fact, you may even want to join a group that fights for the dignity of women. This album is not as polished as her next album, but then, she had a decade to polish herself up for that one. But it is a great album, highly reccomended."

"I am a fan of Bernadette Peters and have been since I first heard her sing in the delightful show "Dames at Sea" - so many years ago. My admiration for her singing and her interpretation of wonderful songs have done nothing but expand. This particular recording is mostly made up of music recorded in 1980 and 1981. Beginning with Steven Sondheim's "Broadway Baby" from Follies and ending with Harry Warren's "You'll Never Know" this is packed with great songs and magnificent singing. While I like every single one of the songs, the poignant "Other Lady" by Lesley Gore and Ellen Watson seals the fate of this CD to be at the top of my most listened to stack that I keep handy at all times. Wonderfully subtle renditions of "Mean to Me" and "If You Were The Only Boy" help to make this CD one of the best collection of Ms. Peters' singing that is available. Trust me - if you like good songs, terrific singing, and Bernadette Peters - RUSH to get this CD."
