what the critics are saying

“An absolute must!”
–Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“This CD is a winner! Forget thinking you know who she is from The Facts of Life – this woman has had an amazing career and still shows up in concerts and benefits. This album is just crazy good – run and get this.”

Charlotte Rae
Songs I Taught My Mother
Silly, Sinful & Satiric Selections

Originally issued on LP in 1955, SONGS I TAUGHT MY MOTHER was a classic of its time, showcasing singer-actress-comedienne Charlotte Rae in a delightful and novel album of both specialty material and standards. A Tony and Emmy-nominated actress (best known today for her role as Mrs. Garrett on The Facts of Life), Rae had already struck gold as Mrs. Peachum in The Threepenny Opera when she recorded SONGS I TAUGHT MY MOTHER; two years later, she triumphed again in Li’l Abner, and maintained strong ties to the theatre throughout her prolific television and film career, receiving Tony nominations for her roles in Pickwick (1965) and Morning, Noon and Night (1968) and an Obie nomination for her appearance in Terrence McNally’s Whiskey (1973). PS Classics is proud to be releasing this much-loved album (which includes rarities by Cole Porter, Sheldon Harnick, Marc Blitzstein and Vernon Duke) for the first time on CD.
