Bette Midler On What She Might Do After The Rose; “I might end up in opera, who knows? I think I’d like to do some version of Salome, a rock and roll version of Salome. I saw a real serious version of it the other day on some cheesy channel. You know the ones you have to fiddle with to get the channel.” (Advocate, November 10, 1977)

BetteBack October 29, 1973: Bette Midler’s New Album Will Be A Collector’s Item Dream

Greeley Daily Tribune

In little over a year Bette Midler has become the most exciting new star of the 1970s.

Her club and concert appearances are all SRO; she has a TV special in the offering; her first album on Atlantic records turned to gold.

You can’t ask for much more than that in such a short period of time.

Bette’s new album is full of the magic that made her a superstar in so short a time and it’s entitled simply “Bette Midler.” She sings songs old and new, investing them all with the warmth and feeling that gives them new life and freshness, whether they are happy or tragic, camp or torch.

Bette Midler On Singing State Songs In Concert:

Bette Midler On Singing State Songs In Concert: “It gives me a laugh. I really do make an effort to find a Colorado song or a Carolina song, depending on where we are. The band and I always like to see what happens when you sing the state song of wherever you happen to be. Very funny things can happen, especially in the Midwest. It keeps us on our toes and gives the audience a giggle.” (Boston Globe, 1994)
