BetteBack January 16, 1974: Expert Peruses Shoes For Fashion Views

Lebanon Daily News
January 16, 1974

2016-07-19_8-47-46

Kooky Bette Midler, the 5 Ft one rock-roll singer whose ’40s clothes are custom made by Bob DeMora, wears one of her six exaggerated high platform shoes bought “for practically nothing” from thrift shops. She wears the same shoes over and over again.

“That girl emulates the spirit of Mae West,” says Regensburg. She has a large bosom and accentuates her curves by wearing old clothes that whittle her waistline. And those shoes, which are really outrageous, have become part of her sex appeal.” Read More

Seven Facts About “Leader Of The Pack”

AARP Blog
George ‘Shadow’ Morton: 7 Facts About ‘Leader of the Pack’
Posted on 02/21/2013
By Patrick Kiger

Bette-Midler-Tour-1978

You know the story: Girl from respectable family falls in love with motorcycle-riding bad boy from the wrong side of town. Parents disapprove, and force the girl to break up with the boy. Boy, aggrieved and despondent as only a young romantic can be, peels out on his motorcycle, and promptly crashes and is killed. Girl cries and promises never to forget him.

If William Shakespeare had been alive in 1964 and worked at the Brill Building, he might well have written the chart-topping hit single “Leader of the Pack” instead of Romeo and Juliet. But he wasn’t around, so instead, that job fell to the writing/producing team of Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and George “Shadow” Morton. Read More

BetteBack Review: The Divine Miss M ~ January 12, 1973

Van Nuys Valley News And Green Sheet
Bette Midler Puts Utmost Into Act and It’s Paying Off
January 12, 1973

Every once in a great while there comes along a performer who is not only good in his-her field, but comes equipped with a u n i q u e style making people sit up and take notice.

Those who have seen Bette Midler perform have been overwhelmed by her exuberant flair and the manner in which she lets herself go and puts the utmost into her act.

This same abundance of energy comes through loud and clear on her new Atlantic album “The Divine Miss M.” Besides the energy and excitement expressed on the LP, Miss Midler sings with such sensuality and phrasing as to caress each lyric. Read More

Charleston Gazette
The Divine Miss M ~ Bette Midler
December 2, 1972

THE DIVINE MISS M. -Betle Midler, Atlantic – At last a new female VOICE on the scene, Joplin is gone, Carole King is nice but not unusual and Barbra Streisand is… well, not enough. Not just a singer, ‘Miss M’ is an entertainer and this album shows her off well.

From sultry sexiness to innocence, to gritty meanness, Midler goes through such goodies as “Leader of the Pack,” Chapel of Love” and “Do You Want to Dance?.” Read More
