a wonderful introduction to bette midler

I was first introduced to Bette with this album when I was twelve. I was transfixed by the shear fun of it all, and absolutely loved Miss Otis Regrets. This is an album that I think everyone should have along with Bathhouse Bette. Buy it ... don't copy it!

A One Hit Wonder??

I must disagree with the opening review that this cd contains only one hit. This cd, Bette's most successful commercial release, contains three radio hits, "Night And Day," "From A Distance," and "The Gift Of Love." Bette's vocals on all the tracks is spot on and while the over-production marks time a bit this cd is still an excellent listen.

My wife and I have listened to this wonderful album for many years; wore out one cassette and now have it etched in my hard drive of my laptop! This is Bette at her best we think and since Beaches, my wife has been hooked on Bette!
