Description

Bette Midler - To Deserve You (HQ 1080p HD Upscale) Bette Midler (born December 1, 1945) is an American singer, actress, and comedian, also known by her informal stage name, The Divine Miss M. She became famous as a cabaret and concert headliner, and went on to star in successful and acclaimed films such as The Rose, Ruthless People, Beaches, and For The Boys. During her more than forty-year career, Midler has been nominated for two Academy Awards, and won three Grammy Awards, four Golden Globes, three Emmy Awards, and a special Tony Award. She has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Her voice type is categorised as deep mezzo soprano. Midler was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. Her parents moved from Paterson, New Jersey to Honolulu before she was born, and hers was one of the few Jewish families in a mostly Asian neighborhood. Her mother, Ruth (née Schindel), was a seamstress and housewife, and her father, Fred Midler, worked at a Navy base in Hawaii. She was named after actress Bette Davis. The song 'To Deserve You' comes from the album Bette of Roses and it is her eighth studio album released on Atlantic Records in 1995. It became Midler's final album for the label, twenty-three years after the release of her debut and breakthrough The Divine Miss M. Although Bette of Roses met with generally positive reviews on its release it proved to be Midler's lowest charting studio album since 1983's rock and new wave influenced No Frills, peaking at #45 on Billboard's album chart and #55 in the UK. This resulted in the release of a radically remixed dance version of Maria McKee's country rock ballad "To Deserve You", which more or less only retained the lead vocals and a sample of the spoken line "I would die for you" from the album version, which had been arranged by the composer herself. The original backing track was replaced with a 123 BPM mid 90s dance production in the style of house music remixers like Shep Pettibone, Frankie Knuckles and Junior Vasquez - although it in fact had been remixed and re-produced by Arif Mardin himself. The promo video was also re-edited and re-released, then using the dance remix instead of the Bette of Roses recording. In Europe, Australia and New Zealand the remix single was issued to promote Atlantic/Warner Music's expanded re-release of Midler's 1993 hits compilation Experience the Divine - on which it was placed as the opening track - instead of the actual Bette of Roses album. Although notably different to Midler's original recording of the song, and indeed the whole Bette of Roses album project as such, the disco remix of "To Deserve You" proved to be one of the biggest commercial successes of her musical career as the track became a major dancefloor hit in the US in early 1996, reaching #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. It however became Midler's final collaboration with the Atlantic Records label. Info source http://en.wikipedia.org I had a reasonable vob file for this upscale although it was a bit too blurry for my liking. After removing most of the fizzy, grainy, noisy crap from the image I have refocused the video as much as possible. Color and lighting has been tweaked. Details have been enhanced as much as possible as well. After scaling it to HD resolution I compared it to the vob source it came from and I'm quite pleased with it as it came out much better than I expected. The audio from the vob source was in stereo but I didn't like it. Much too flat and weak. After digging out a digital file to replace it and listening to it I was disappointed with that as well. So I took the audio completely apart in my sound studio. After about an hour or so of working on it I can tell you that it sounds beautiful and much better than what you'll get on the CD. Turn up the volume and enjoy the fabulous sound my friends. This is the best quality you will find for this superb track from Bette Midler and I hope you enjoy it! :-) Be aware that some evil people will download my clip resto...
