I have noticed a commonality of titles included in the following releases:

CYCLONE 506 - 78rpm
MEZZOTONE   - album 11  3-78rpm  Album of Mae West Songs
MEZZOTONE   - album ??  3-45rpm
PR 22       - PROSCENIUM records  W.C.Fields & Mae West  LP
DPC 718     - DEMAND PERFORMANCE cassette (Glendale, CA) 1986  Mae West Naughty But Wise

Are these all derived from the MezzoTone recordings?
What information is available about MezzoTone and Cyclone labels?
Are there additional Cyclone Mae West releases?
Can anyone provide complete session details for Mezzotone?
What are the record numbers for the individual Mezzotone disks?
Are there any CD issues of these Mae West recordings?
What is known of Demand Performance?
What other releases were on Demand Performance - were there LP's as well as cassettes?

Here is the list of titles and releases:
