"This CD is one of the few recordings currently in print which contains Mae West's music and it certainly does not disappoint.
The first six or so tracks are commercial recordings of the songs featured in Mae's 1930s films (they are longer and slightly different than what's on the movie soundtrack). But from then on, all the songs are taken directly from the soundtracks of those films, so if you are a fan of Mae West movies and enjoy the music she sings in them, the songs are here on CD just as they are in the movies and you will be delighted with them.
People who only know Mae West from the 'Myra Breckinridge' phase of her career (not only the movie but Mae's "comeback" albums of the 60s and 70s) should know that the music from that era is not on this CD. This CD is Mae West at her commercial and artistic peak, the 1930s and early 1940s.
My favorite tracks include "They Call Me Sister Honky Tonk," "Easy Rider," "When a St. Louis Woman Comes Down to New Orleans," and especially "I Found a New Way to Go to Town." All great honky tonk numbers, all pure Mae West.
This CD is a must for all Mae West fans. Get it before it becomes unavailable."
