The Fabulous Mae West - Mae West

The Fabulous Mae West
‘He who hesitates is a damned fool’. ‘His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork’. ‘I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it’. ‘Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution yet’. ‘You're never too old to become younger’. Just a few quotations from the immortal Mae West, one of the Monstres sacrees of the modern world. From her celebrated career on Broadway in the 1920s (where plays like ‘SEX’ made her both a star and a national scandal!) to her storming of Hollywood (where her double entendre packed movies saved paramount Studios from the depression) Mae West will always be a legend. More than capable of handling the music numbers both in her stage work and movies, she started to record risque rock’n’roll material in the early 1950s. Sensing a kindred spirit in the music, this great CD is based on her first album in the genre, totally rockin' and totally filthy - in the nicest possible way. Her later albums in the 1960s and 1970s were produced by legends like David Mallet (supervisor on SHINDIG!) music historian and unlikely pop star Ian Whitcomb, and Michael Lloyd of The WCPAEB. Now hear where it all began, as Mae treats rock’n’roll as she did Ragtime and Jazz before them... as a mere vehicle for her suggestiveness, and what a ride! Rock n Roll has NEVER sounded so filthy! NEVER BEFORE ON CD - nobody dared! Wonderfully remastered in true Rev-Ola style! A must for all fans of Rockin' mayhem...and general naughtyness!!!
