Biography

Biography by William Ruhlmann

Bette Midler counts singing as only one of her talents; at times, since 1972, when she first came to national recognition, it has seemed to be the least of her talents. Still, she has managed to score a number of major hits in a roller-coaster career as a recording artist. Born in Paterson, NJ, and raised in Hawaii, Midler showed an interest in singing and ...

The release of this album marked Midler's return to recording after a long absence, due to personal issues. The album is considered by many to be one of her best, if not in deed the best. The track selection includes songs from the Rolling Stones "Beast of Burden" and Marvin Cranshaw "My Favourite waste of time", the latter Midler descibed at the time as a "radio record". In her own terms she wanted to do a track that when you heard it you felt that it was catchy enough to be on the radio. In deed this track was released my a number of people as a single ahead of her, but non of their versions are a patch on Midler's. This is a very up song. The album is in many ways closer in gritiness to albums like The Rose, it certainly provided a show case for Midlers diverse singing styles and choice of music. For many this made it more accessible than many of the previous Midler album.

No Frills is a fun record, impossible to put into any box, with Bette showing a number of styles. It has a wonderful 80s feel, delightfully in your face in the bouncy opening number, Is It Love - the question is whether it makes the world go around and around - or perhaps love could be a round and a round, as on the brilliant cover design, or other spheres on the body, according to taste - it's all love, anyway. Beast of Burden was written and produced by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and had a brilliant video with Jagger to promote it. It's a great song, straight from the hip and calling for the kind of full-on delivery that characterised her performance in The Rose ... Then there are sweeter songs such as the delightful Favorite Waste Of Time - which, judging from the comic edge to the delivery, sounds as if we could be contemplating the spheres - a new music of the spheres, perhaps? There are also poignant numbers like Come back Jimmy Dean and Soda and a Souvenir, and the sultry My Eye On You - what part of 'you' is left unclear, but we could be back near the lower spheres - or perhaps somewhere else, if Let Me Drive is any indication. This is the best song of all, perhaps, if you like innuendo. Bette is off on a ride in a Hot Rod, and the boy at the wheel is giving it some gas ... Bette's hot driver seems to truly burn up the tarmac in a comic burst ... and seeing her in the fabulous 80s artwork it's no surprise. It's the style used in the show Art or Bust, very much of the 80s, and with a huge sense of fun and pleasure from every angle. Ah, those big balloons, so light, so big!

Bette Midler's "No Frills" from 1983 is not her most memorable, and its songs don't even get an appropiate representation in her greatest hits collection (or even any 80's hits collection) - which I still can't understand why. Even though it was very successful in Europe (a chart-topper in Sweden, and a top 10 LP in several other countries), The album didn't do well in the U.S, which is another fact that is just impossible to digest....

"No Frills" is simply a great album, and so versatile it just has somthing for everyone - dance, rock, ballads, salsa... even some new-wave elements that ruled the charts back in those days. It's also the first album to include a song which its lyrics was written by Bette Midler herself ("Come Back Jimmy Dean").

"Is It Love" is a true blast to open such an album. That song is just electrifying!!!, "Let Me Drive" is a superb dance smash with the perfect summer-breezy atmosphere (you can really bounce along in your car with its beat),"My Favorite Waste Of Time" is a true Bette-Type-Of-Sound (it was a one-hit-wonder for Owen Paul in 1986), and "All I Need To Know" is simply a brilliant and touchy ballad (much better than the cover of Linda Ronsdatd and Aaron Neville from 1989), "Heart Over Heat" is a cool and calm song to listen to and relax and "Only In Miami" is a nice samba tune which is also typical to the sound of Bette Midler live performances.

As much as all of her albums are great - I'd highly recommend "No Frills" much more than any of her other records. If it didn't sell well back in 1983 - It should be on any music fan's shelf now. Do yourself a favor and get this album.

I Loved this album when it was first released. Lost my copy a few years ago, I heard one of the tracks on the radio last week and that prompted me to seek the album out. Still as brilliant and varied as it was way back when.
