Between 1977 and 1981, the iconic Carole Bayer Sager released three albums of collaborations with Melissa Manchester, Bette Midler, Marvin Hamlish, Peter Allen and many others. This performance is a loving recreation of the 10 perfect pop songs included on her first album, Carole Bayer Sager (Elektra Entertainment 1977).

This is a song by song, in chronological order, look at that first album - Carole Bayer Sager. It is a loving recreation of particular time in our lives. For a lot of us, who came to NYC in the time of STUDIO 54 and punk music, the vibe of this album was a right of passage into love, surviving love and love lost.
