Another big break for Luther came on this day in 1975, when Bette Midler’s Clams on the Half-Shell Revue opened on Broadway. On the recommendation of David Bowie, Luther arranged vocals for Bette and backing group The Harlettes, raising his profile as a session singer.
Fans gave Luther five awards in the Blues & Soul magazine 1988 readers poll, and the editors put him on the cover for it on this week’s issue that same year!
