It’s The Girls! is Bette’s first studio album in 8 years, a stunning new collection of songs that pays tribute
to girl groups through the ages. “A long time ago I fell in love with voices in harmony,” said Midler. “In particular, the sound of female voices singing together. There were so many great girl groups in those days, I still listen as avidly as I ever did. This record is a small attempt to honor them for all the joy they brought to me and the world.” It’s The Girls! is a jaunty and celebratory collection ofsome of the greatest harmonies performed by girl groups such as The Ronettes, The Boswell Sisters, The Andrew Sisters, The Chiffons as well as Motown acts like Martha Reeves and TheVandellas, and The Marvelettes, among others.
