BetteBack: The Divine Miss M – Bette Midler Is Finally Released ~ Review

Charleston Gazette
The Divine Miss M ~ Bette Midler
December 2, 1972

THE DIVINE MISS M. -Betle Midler, Atlantic – At last a new female VOICE on the scene, Joplin is gone, Carole King is nice but not unusual and Barbra Streisand is… well, not enough. Not just a singer, ‘Miss M’ is an entertainer and this album shows her off well.

From sultry sexiness to innocence, to gritty meanness, Midler goes through such goodies as “Leader of the Pack,” Chapel of Love” and “Do You Want to Dance?.”

Oldies, yes, but they become new when Bette Midler does them. Leon Russell‘s “Superstar” is perfection. And “Am I Blue” is near it.

The lady’s been appearing recently on the Johnny Carson “Tonight. Show” and “The Divine Miss M,” coupled with these appearances may make her a new star soon. Pick up on her early—you’ll be glad you did. UC
