Bette Midler Artist Snapshot:

Honolulu-born Bette Midler's flamboyant stage persona, born in the 1970s (though she had been singing professionally in the 1960s), is what makes people take notice, but the self-proclaimed Divine Miss M is more than a singing comedienne. In addition to being a skilled TV and film actress, she's also a canny interpreter of pop and novelty songs in a multitude of genres, some ranging back as far as the Jazz Age. She's tackled everything from the Rolling Stones' "Beast of Burden" to an album's worth of Rosemary Clooney-associated tunes with equal aplomb, and has made a splash on the silver screen many times (THE ROSE, SCENES FROM A MALL, BEACHES, and numerous others).

Product Notes

Like its predecessor Bathhouse Betty, Bette Midler''s Bette spends a good deal of its playing time on ambitious, smartly chosen songs. Even the biggest pop-ballad success here is a Dionne Warwick-style take on the Elvis Costello/Burt Bacharach weeper "God Give Me Strength," rather than a dire work of schlock such as "The Wind Beneath My Wings." Elsewhere, Midler continues to indulge her cheeky side (the album''s working title was Bette, Bath and Beyond) with Kirsty MacColl''s Cuban-influenced "In These Shoes," and revives Teddy Pendergrass''s classic "Love TKO" with an impressively throaty vocal. The handful of Hallmark-esque tunes near the disc''s end doesn''t diminish the subtlety and tastefulness of the rest of it. --Park Slope
