Sondheim, Etc.: Live At Carnegie Hall (1997 Solo Album)

"Sondheim, Etc." is the Bernadette Peters disc I would like to have with me on a desert island, as it includes, among its many excellent tracks, stellar live renditions of some of Peters' big songs from her stage roles. The disc opens with my all-time favorite recording of "Broadway Baby," which Peters expertly builds from coy cooing to a thunderous bellow. Another favorite for me is Peters' rip-roaring "Some People," followed by a slew of Sondheim songs — including some surprising choices — all sung with beauty, strength, thought and feeling. A fun inclusion is "Making Love Alone," the comedy number Peters performed on "Saturday Night Live" in 1981, which is still hilarious to this day.
