You can tell that it’s nearly Christmas – every Monday there’s been either a diva album or features album released, and I’ve bought and reviewed them all!
… and now Bette Midler with ‘It’s The Girls!‘ – essentially an intelligently selected mix of songs from the good old days.
The shoo-dwopping track-list is as shown below:
Her vocal is sublime on each track, and of all the albums that I’ve reviewed recently, this is the first not to disappoint and actually ‘work’ in concept.
I’d definitely recommend ‘It’s The Girls!‘- whether a cheeky Christmas buy for Mum / the other half.
With this awesome album, Bette easily proves that she’s still worthy of the title ‘the Devine Miss M’.
Even better news – with the release of this album, we’re getting a UK Tour in 2015 – Bette Midler hasn’t toured this country in 35 years (1979/1980) – essentially, she’s never even sang ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ in a UK Arena before!
