A mess! 13 Jan. 2008
By "Gimpy" Peach Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD had the potential to be very good; unfortunately it isn't. The CD collects snippets from Betty Boop cartoon soundtracks and mixes them with 78 rpm records related to Betty Boop. Some of the 78s are by Helen Kane (the inspiration for the voice and image of Betty Boop), others are by Mae Questal (the woman ultimately responsible for voicing Betty Boop in the cartoons), and others are simply songs by other groups about Betty Boop. However, nowhere in the packaging are the artists for any of the recordings credited. There is no discographical information, and the brief liner notes in the foldover insert aren't very illuminating. To add insult to injury, the sound quality is disappointing: many of the tracks have been subjected to electronic reverb which makes them sound muddy and distant. Who *ever* thought adding reverb was a good idea? This has the look and feel of a sloppily-produced disc rushed through the presses to make a quick buck. Fans of Betty Boop may still find much to enjoy here (a few of the recordings still have not been reissued elsewhere, as far as I know), but I would advise against spending very much for a used copy (now that the CD seems to be out of print).

Happy, often humorous, music 1 Mar. 2014
By Les Perkins - Les Is More Productions - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Contrary to Mr. Johnson’s posted comments, I found this CD delightful for the very reasons he disliked it. He’s not wrong. People’s tastes are different. As one friend said, “That’s why there are 31 flavors.”

I find this a very fun compilation of a specific style of Harlem jazz from a short period in the mid-1930s, which I love. I played it over and over. True, not all tracks are Betty herself (voiced by Mae Questel). But, many of the non-Betty tracks are from Fleischer Studios cartoons. Her “hot” theme song, sung by male vocals, began several Betty Boop cartoons, so those are totally appropriate. I was introduced to Don Redman’s band through cartoons included here.

Further, I was delighted to have Fanny Brice singing, “I’m An Indian,” plus Maurice Chevalier’s “Hello Beautiful” complete. I knew those songs only from the cartoon “Betty Boop’s Rise to Fame” (1934) wherein Betty imitates those stars on those songs. That soundtrack is also included.

True, there are two Helen Kane songs (“That’s My Weakness Now”, “Do Something”), which I consider a mistake. But, they are stylistically consistent, so I don’t mind these enjoyable tracks in the mix. (There was a landmark lawsuit where Helen Kane sued and lost over the Fleischers’ making such a blatant rip-off of Kane’s voice. Decades later, Bette Midler got that ruling overturned, defending a celebrity’s right to control their own likeness.)

In the 1970s, there was an unauthorized vinyl LP of Betty Boop cartoons that I loved. I was delighted that those best song moments were re-captured on this CD, which is why I bought it hoping for that. The highlight is Cab Calloway’s two songs from “The Old Man of the Mountain” (1933) that finish this CD. I can’t get enough of those catchy, toe-tapping tunes. I find the Fleischer versions better than Calloway’s official studio recordings for 78 rpm. The other Calloway recordings on this CD are also from Betty Boop cartoons, so these are not as unrelated as Johnson’s comment suggests. However, there are no liner notes to explain all this, so it’s a fair conclusion to draw without knowing animation history.

btw: audio restoration is part of my professional work and I’m pleased with what was done for this 1998 CD. Today, we could even get better noise reduction. But the original integrity is preserved and features the best-quality versions of these tracks I’ve heard. I likewise object to reverb, but I thought it was well applied sparingly to some of these tracks, as the limited liner notes indicate.

BOOP BOOP A DOOP! 5 Jan. 2011
By Bruce Whippie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This became another step in mom's collection of Betty Boop. She grew up during the depression years
listening to the radio version. This cherished CD is hers with thought to purchase all her cartoons.
Mom is becoming old with not many years left to enjoy the things she once had, yet she accepts
her aging identity despite iniquities. All five of us I the younger make her feel wanted with the most
important gifts she enjoys as a child, we all love our dear Mothers. Thank you very much!
