A well-chosen best-of collection that covers Bette Midler's career up to 1993, EXPERIENCE THE DIVINE hits all the familiar high points. Yes, "The Rose" and "Wind Beneath My Wings" are here--along with longtime favorites like her sultry version of the old 1960s dance hit "Do You Wanna Dance?" and her theatrical take on Tom Waits's "Shiver Me Timbers." Midler's true genius--a quality that only her biggest fans have noticed over the years--is the way that she's casually, almost surreptitiously, updated the Great American Songbook, showing how familiar pre-rock standards, including "One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)" and Cole Porter's "Miss Otis Regrets" fit seamlessly next to songs like the girl-group classic "Chapel of Love" and John Prine's "Hello in There." EXPERIENCE THE DIVINE might feel cursory to devoted fans, but for casual listeners, this disc--along with perhaps her still-exciting debut, THE DIVINE MISS M--is definitive.
