Some (Not All) of Bette's Best...

This is a great collection of hits from the incredible Divine Miss M. I do have to agree with the first reviewer in that there’re songs Bette has released since her first greatest hits album that should have been included.

Love TKO, One Monkey Don't Stop No Show, and In These Shoes should have been included. I've never understood why songs such as Drinking Again, Big Noise From Winnetka, My Mother's Eyes, Midnight In Memphis, Shall Be Released, Stuff Like That There, and La Vie En Rose were not considered worthy to be apart of a greatest hits album. Interpretations of such songs are some of Bette’s biggest achievements.

Highlights from Jackpot: The Best Bette includes, Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most, Tenderly, and the wonderfully previously unreleased, Something Your Heart Has Been Telling You. Classic Bette.

Bette Midler is beyond divine. She is an American treasure. She is the last great entertainer (if you haven’t seen Bette in concert, GO) of her generation.

The best music in the world, you just have to feel it!

For all of you Bette haters. I can understand where you are coming from. If you want a perfect voice like Barbra Streisand's or Doris Day's or something like that then you are looking in the wrong place. But what real Bette fans know is that it is not about the voice as much as it is about the feeling and the soul in the music. That is what has kept her in buisness for about 40 years. Again, she is amazing, just feel the music and you will love it. My personal favorites are When a Man Love a Woman, In the Mood, From a Distance, and Hello in There, but they are all wonderful.
