Mae West: Mae in December

It would not seem right to bid adieu to the last month of the year without mentioning the MAE WEST LP from 1980 — — "Mae in December," flavored with the unique campy style that gave her numbers such a kick.
• • Initially released in a modest pressing as "Wild Christmas" [1966], the tracks were reissued on a small Hollywood label: AEI Records fourteen years later. The original monaural recording presented the same covers but in a slightly different order. It seems this collection has not been offered in a Compact Disc format.
