Midler Steps Into Persona of Janis Joplin on Record Steeped in Rock n’ Roll, Pounding R&B, and Memphis Blues.

Contagious Sound That Spotlights Midler’s Potent Voice: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelity’s World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI

Bette Midler’s first leading role in a musical remains her best. As the soundtrack for that film, The Rose spotlights The Divine Miss M’s outstanding performance as a character in the persona of Janis Joplin. Midler received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress, and while the record contains no visuals, it punctuates the raw emotion and show-stopping persuasion that the singer brings to upbeat, rollicking fare composed in tribute to the late Joplin. Her reading of “When A Man Loves a Woman” remains definitive and unique for being sung from a female’s perspective.

Mastered on Mobile Fidelity’s world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Label LP allows listeners to hone in on Midler’s voice like never before. Kernels of previously unheard tonalities, richer hues of her bluesy timbre, and better-defined contours of her phrasing come to fore — as do the contributions of guitarist Steve Hunter and drummer Whitey Glan, both members of Lou Reed’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Animal tour. No, The Rose isn’t your conventional adult-contemporary pop offering from Midler. It’s much more.
