Using her regular touring band and employing Don Was, an expert on helping pop veterans reclaim the sounds that made them successful, Bette Midler makes an excellent album to tie in with the premiere of her network television show. Was seems to conceive of Midler as a kind of pre-rock, neo-Brill Building performer, frequently putting her into mid-tempo pop arrangements of old R&B ballads, here including Baby Washington's 1960 hit "That's How Heartaches Are Made," the Temptations' 1971 hit "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)" (which here sounds even more like an old Drifters hit than it does usually), and a pair of 1980 titles, Teddy Pendergrass' "Love TKO" and the Manhattans' "Shining Star." The album's tour de force, a six-and-a-half-minute version of Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello's "God Give Me Strength," also recalls the Brill Building, as does the bouncy pop tune "Nobody Else but You," co-written by Midler and Marc Shaiman to be the theme for the TV show. Was and Midler also satisfy the need for up-tempo material with a trio of genre exercises, Latin pop in "In These Shoes," mbaqanga in "Moses," and dance in "Bless You Child." Bette is a tasteful album that showcases Midler's expressive singing but avoids her excesses. "In These Shoes" is an amusing novelty that does not play too heavily to the singer's broad comic style, while ballads like "Color of Roses" and "When Your Life Was Low" are striking for their restraint, not going for the maudlin extremes Midler has been guilty of indulging in the past. That means fans of the bawdy Bette and the bathetic Bette may be disappointed, but the rest of her followers will enjoy the balance and consistency of this collection.

Bette Midler counts singing as only one of her talents. Still, she has managed to score a number of major hits in a roller-coaster career as a recording artist. Born in Paterson, New Jersey and raised in Hawaii, Midler showed an interest in singing and acting early on, and by the '60s she had moved to New York and gotten a role in the long-running Broadway hit Fiddler on the Roof. Midler developed a nightclub act that included comedy and singing of a variety of kinds of material, including show tunes,...
