BetteBack March 3, 1975: Is Bette Midler going to appear on TV as a regular on a show without singing?

News Journal Mansfield March 3, 1975 Bette Midler Q. – I was told that Bette Midler is going to appear on TV as a regular on a show without singing. Is this possible?  P.B., Bridgeport, Conn. A. – It’s possible, but it’s not about to happen. Bette Midler has not signed to star in a straight non – musical TV series. However, she is a capable actress and would probably do well playing an offbeat character in a TV series. Bette’s current plans do not involve TV … she is readying a Broadway revue in which she will star.

    BetteBack August 26, 1974: Bette Midler Gets Pirated

    Denton Record August 26, 1974 bette-midler-the-divine-miss-m-8-track-tape-1972-atlantic-original-dad0e4d7139986e665e380d9594b0993 HOLLYWOOD (UPI> – Hold it! That EJvis Presley tape cartridge you’re playing on your stereo outfit may well be bootlegged. If you paid only $2.50-*3.50 for that Presley- or Bette Midler 8-track tape then it almost certainly is a pirated product. The United States Attorney’s Office says one out of every three tape cartridges is as hot as the Watergate recordings although considerably less earth-shaking. Diet Brown, an assistant U.S. attorney in Los Angeles, recently won conviction against a man named Richard Taxe in a multimillion dollar tape bootlegging operation trial. Taxe was sentenced this month to four years in prison and fined S26.QOQ. “The case is important,” said Bro\vn. “because it may help us get convictions from other tape pirates. It’s a nationwide problem. “Even.’ top recording star and group in the country is pirated. You name the stars — Jim Croce, Three Dog Night, Bette Midler, the Carpenters. Joe Cocker, Cheech and Chong. Merle Haggard, Johnny Mathis. All of them.” The process is rather simple. The bootlegger buys an album or a tape, records it over and over again on other tapes, slaps a different label on inferior cartridges and sells them for the genuine article. Brown said the bogus recordings are sold at swap meets, filling stations, discount houses and in legitimate record stores. “It’s a S250 million business.” he said. “And one out of three tapes is pirated. Los Angeles. New York and Nashville arr hotbeds of piracy, but small operators are bootlegging tapes all over the country. “Some guys even operate out of vans and sell the tapes right on the streets at swap meets. A legitimate tape costs $6.98 in most places. The bootlegger’s product sells for about a third of that. “A lot of people think there’s nothing wrong with pirating. But it cheats artists, record companies and retail outlets of millions of dollars.
