Fashion in 1974 is not dictated by authorities or names or peers, but by needs, living patterns, individually and personal preference, New York fashion coordinator Virginia Sorem said recently in Kansas City.

Nowhere is this fashion definition better expressed than on the college campus.

Ms. Sorem, who selects all the women’s clothing for the J.C. Penney catalogue each season, said in 1974” there are no trends, there are concepts.”

THE CONCEPT of easy living reigns supreme on the Kansas University campus. Despite the fashion prognostication of an end to the blue jean uniform of years past, it will continue. Read More

Hot prospect single-popular – Do You Want to Dance by Bette Midler.

Miss Midler has once again done what she is most famous for, she has taken in a 1958 Bobby Freeman hit song and remade it to fit her own style.

The song. Do You Want to Dance, is in a slower tempo with softer music.

BetteBack 1997: ONE MORE ROUND: THE LATEST, GREATEST BETTE, DIVA LAS VEGAS

ONE MORE ROUND:
THE LATEST, GREATEST BETTE,
DIVA LAS VEGAS

Concert review by Todd Sussman. This review appeared in The Bette Midler Scrapbook, by Allison Waldman (1997).

——————————

“Did I sing the ballad yet? Was I wonderful?”

“Did I sing the ballad yet? Was I wonderful?”

——————————

Introduction by Allison Waldman, author of The Bette Midler Scrapbook:
On January 10, 1997, fifty-two-year old Bette Midler returned to the stage once again. The occasion was the filming of her updated Experience the Divine show, renamed Diva Las Vegas. The show that played the MGM Grand Garden was a spectacle, a monumental concert by a monumental concert artist. Entertainment journalist and longtime Bette Midler fan Todd Sussman was fortunate enough to see Diva Las Vegas live. His in-depth review of the show offers insights into the magic of Midler live and at her very best. As you will read, he thought she was simply divine.
