DESCRIPTION

Bette Midler has been singing her way into people’s hearts since her debut album, The Divine Miss M (1972), helped the singer win her first Grammy® Award. Throughout her career, Midler has demonstrated a remarkable musical range, but many of her signature hits have focused on matters of the heart. That’s why Rhino is bringing together 18 of her best love songs for a new collection A Gift Of Love.

After Atlantic Records president Ahmet Ertugun discovered Midler in 1972, the irrepressible singer with the unmistakable voice went on to enjoy an amazing career that continues to this day. This new collection includes highlights from albums she recorded for both Atlantic Records and Warner Bros. between 1976 and 2014.

The earliest recording on the new album is Let Me Just Follow Behind, which Midler recorded for her third album, Songs for the New Depression (1976). The most recent tracks — (Talk To Me Of) Mendocino and The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game — come from the sessions for Midler’s smash tribute to female trios It’s the Girls and are previously unreleased outside of the U.S.

This new collection spotlights a number of incredibly poignant tracks, like her cover of Marshall Crenshaw’s My Favorite Waste Of Time from No Frills (1983); Every Road Leads Back To You from the soundtrack to her film For the Boys (1991); Shining Star from Bette (2000); plus five tracks from her release Bette of Roses (1995), including It’s Too Late and As Dreams Go By.

A Gift Of Love would not be complete without three of Midler’s biggest hits: The Rose from the 1979 film of the same name in which Midler starred; the #1 Grammy-winning smash Wind Beneath My Wings from another Midler film, Beaches; and From A Distance, from her album Some People’s Lives (1990).
