Containing Multitudes Since 2004
love the mop top boy toys she's got
I want this record! WANT, WANT WANT!!!
It's a classic. You should hear her version of Light My Fire.
I remember her version of Light My Fire was right up there with The Doors and Jose Feliciano back in the day..but I can't honestly say if I've ever heard it!!I'd like to check out some of these tunes....lol ..Day Tripper..
Hmm...maybe a posting is in order...
Say, is that The Wonders backing her up?
Say, is that The Wonders backing her up?That's the O-ne-ders!
Sure that's not Cap'n Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters?
I wonder if she could breathe alright in that dress. I'm feeling a little faint just looking at her.
Geoff:The mop top boys on the cover were undoubtedly hired just for that, and nothing else. The music on the album was, I would guess, handles by session players (God knows there had to be professionals involved with that record at some point).Stephen:Post it if y'got it. It's no 'Criswell Predicts', but it's got charm nonetheless.
Criswell Predicts is a classic.I just realized I don't have this particular Mae West LP, I have a later one on MGM titled Great Balls of Fire (1972) produced by Ian Whitcomb, with music by "the Hot Rockers" and vocals by the Mike Curb Congregation. Besides the title track and Light My Fire, she also performs Whole Lot of Shakin' Goin' On, Rock Around the Clock and something called How Miss West Won World Peace (written by Whitcomb). Clearly I need to give this another listen.
Supposedly, the backing band on Way Out West is "Somebody's Chyldren" (sic).From the liner notes: "In this album, Mae rocks and rolls to an especially selected repertoire of the latest rock'n'roll hits, backed by the dynamic young group Somebody's Chyldren. Her voice is torrid. Her beat is sensational. Her rhythm is like no other rhythm in the business. When she sings these emotional lyrics, they take on deep and feelingful meaning. It's as though Mae was made for rock'n'roll, and rock'n'roll made for Mae."

Testify ~ I *think* this was re-released on a budget MGM label here in England. You used to see this, not often but it would crop up. My friend had a copy from a car boot and it was very good, as I recall.
I've only just seen these posts so belated thanx to y'all.
