The Divine Miss M
(Deluxe Edition, 2PC)
Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Bette graduated quickly from the cabaret circuit to pop stardom in '72, when her now-iconic debut LP The Divine Miss M went gold and sent her spirited spin on "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" to the top 10. The rest is showbiz history; now, Rhino is taking us back to the top, remastering Bette's first album and adding a disc of rarities plus liner notes by Better herself. You get single mixes of "Friends," "Chapel of Love," "Do You Want to Dance" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," demos of "Saturday Night" and "Mr. Freedom and I," early versions of "Old Cape Cod," "Marahauana" and more precious snapshots of the very beginning of a spectacular career in entertainment.
