5.0 out of 5 stars A role she was made for
Midler won much critical aclaim for this popular HBO production of the classic musical. She is great in the role of Rose and covers the classic songs from this great score with much gusto. The role was very much the property of Ethal Merman who is always associated with it. However, Midler more than holds her own and actually goes on to give us a rendition as great as...

3.0 out of 5 stars not quite there
I must immediately admit that I wanted to buy the Merman version, but it's not available. Bette Midler is satisfactory - just - but really lacks the oomph of Merman. However, as I want it for a presentation about the show it will suffice.

Plenty of good tunes to sing along to like you mean it. Check out the video/DVD if you can

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent soundtrack recording, 4 Jun 2007

This review is from: Gypsy - Ost (Audio CD)
Every once in a while, network television does something right. That's the case in this production of "Gypsy." If anything, I like the soundtrack recording more than I did the television production. Bette Midler does an admirable job as "Mama Rose," and her interpretations of the material are outstanding. The score, which is almost 50 years old, is so much smarter than anything coming out of musical theater today, which is sad to say. At least there are revivals.
