Mae West - Wild Christmas (A REMASTERED CANCELLATION)



The album you are looking at holds a special spot in my collection.  It was one of the first Christmas albums I actively searched for when I seriously began collecting Christmas music.  It also was the first album I ever shared online (first at FaLaLaLaLa.com, then here).  

And it's still one of the most popular shares in my sharity list  (over 800 downloads since I first posted this).

Since I'm a sentimental guy, I decided when I got my new USB turntable in hopes of remastering many of my older shares that this would be the first album that would get the star treatment.

I think Mae West would have been pleased.

I had rescanned the covers (300 dpi) and the record labels and was getting ready to drop the needle to re-record the glorious tones of Ms. West.

But...

I was reading my new copy of Goldmine Magazine and discovered a vendor selling a new Canadian import 2-for-1 CD.  In addition to this album, you get West's 1970 album "The Fabulous Mae West" that features 11 songs and was issued in conjunction with her appearance in the dreadful movie "Myra Breckinridge".

Best Buy's online site tells us that this was released on January 4, 2011.  Soooooo, I've taken the old share offline and sadly, I won't be posting the new remastered version.  


Do us a favor - read through my sharity list and see which titles jump out at you.  Which of these albums should be given the full remastered treatment?


Leave us a comment and let me know your choices...  who knows, I might be able to post something new!

I have a soft spot for late 1950s early 1960s music. I would vote for Bobby Vinton. Keep up the great work on the site. The Mae West album is a must have!
