A Gift Of Love
Since her 1972 debut, Bette Midler has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and become only the second female singer to score a Top 10 album in five consecutive decades. Throughout her career, Midler has demonstrated a remarkable musical range, but as the new Rhino collection A GIFT OF LOVE bears out, many of her signature songs have focused on matters of the heart. Drawing from the singer's studio albums and soundtracks recorded for Atlantic Records and Warner Bros. between 1976 and 2014, the 18-track set is both poignant and passionate. Of course some of her most famous hits are here: “The Rose” from the 1979 film of the same name, the Top Ten “From A Distance” and the #1 Grammy-winning smash “Wind Beneath My Wings.” But the lesser-known songs are equally affecting, such as her cover of Marshall Crenshaw's “My Favorite Waste Of Time” or “Every Road Leads Back To You” from the FOR THE BOYS soundtrack. With A GIFT OF LOVE, Bette Midler will sing her way into your heart.
