Bette Midler is grabbing a business lunch in the Rotunda, the mouse-motif restaurant frequented by the top rung of Team Disney, when a sandy-haired executive interrupts her, mid-bite. "You're my favorite . . . seen everything you've done," he says, both excited and apologetic. "I was in the second row at Radio City [Music Hall]--the one who caught your hairpiece in the mermaid act."

Nostalgia's always been the Divine Miss M's strong suit on records, from "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" to last year's "Bathhouse Betty," a nod to her early days entertaining New York's gay underground. And the best tracks on this new album are redolent of '60s pop.

One so wants to like everything the Divine Miss M does. But you'd have to reach back two decades to find an album of hers that even hints at the endearing wit and charm she displays on stage and screen. Pretty much the only thing about "Bette of Roses" that will raise a smile is its cute title. Which is not to say the album is wholly without appeal. It's just that the entertainment it provides is so, well, mainstream .

James Caan's disparaging remarks regarding Bette Midler--"Bette Midler is very stupid. She's not a bad person, but stupid in terms of gray matter. I mean I like her, but I like my dog too"--demonstrate a clear lack of class and character. His selection of friends (Ronald A. Lorenzo) would seem to bear this out. Or perhaps he's jealous that her stellar career has so overshadowed his. N. D. LAUER Long Beach

There are some weeks when it seems appropriate to call this column the Rhino Records Corner, because the Santa Monica-based label continues to come up with so many impressive CD reissues from the early days of rock. The latest examples are the first four titles in a series of packages that are being released in connection with Rhino's acquisition of the North American rights to the catalogues of Roulette Records and associated labels.

When Houston-born drummer Tony Braunagel left chiropractic college in 1970 to work with a band on the Southern rhythm-and-blues circuit, his parents were desolated. Twenty years later, Albert and Jody Braunagel watched their son Tony on national TV, playing with blues singer Bonnie Raitt at the 1990 Grammy Awards show. Raitt's album "Nick of Time," featuring Braunagel on drums, swept the awards, and it was clear he'd made the right move.
