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).
