The Rose (soundtrack) (35th anniversary)
Today (February 15th) marks the thirty fifth anniversary of the release of the soundtrack from The Rose, a rock drama starring Bette Midler (in her acting debut) which told the tale of a 1960’s rock star who was struggling with the pressures of her career and demands from her business manager. The story was loosely based on the life of Janis Joplin, and the film was nominated for four Academy Awards. The soundtrack album, which features Midler on vocals, reached number 12 on the US Billboard Album chart with a forty-five week total run on the chart.
