Look What Happened To Mabel: The Essential Bernadette Peters On Disc

"Evening Primrose Suite" (From the Mandy Patinkin Album "Dress Casual")
Mandy Patinkin gave Bernadette Peters fans everywhere a gift when he invited her to co-star in a suite of songs from Sondheim's 1966 television musical "Evening Primrose" on his 1990 album, "Dress Casual." It was dream casting, as the music affords Peters the chance to sing in her sweet, upper-middle register, a range where most women sound interchangeable, but where Peters' idiosyncratic voice conveys personality, warmth and truth. The result is the definitive recordings of the semi-obscure Sondheim gems, "I Remember," "When" and "Take Me To The World."
