I bet there are a lot of Bob Dylan fans at C&L, and probably a few Bette Midler fans as well. But how many have heard the two of them together. Have you heard this duet they did of Bob's classic "Buckets of Rain?" It was first released-- the original, I mean-- in 1975 on Blood on the Tracks and the following year they recorded this duet for Bette's Songs For the New Depression. He only performed the song live once after that, in Detroit in 1990. It sounds like he and Bette totally mangled the lyrics on this version.

Can you help us out?
