Too Close To Perfection

Archive || reaction gifs

A Great Performances T.V. show featuring Bernadette Peters, Andy Williams, Glenn Close, Judy Collins, and many more singers and songwriters. I have also uploaded some of these performances on separate videos, such as Bernadette Peters and Marvin Hamlisch together with "The Way We Were", a song which Hamlisch wrote the music for. I have done this on a few of my long videos, so that some of the performances will reach a wider audience (they are especially good, I think, &/or those who haven’t otherwise been seen, such as Glenn Close singing "They Didn’t Believe Me".
