I Wonder What Became of Me features 12 early tracks from cabaret vocalist Anita Ellis recorded in the mid-'50s. The program consists mainly of standards, as she dips into the songbooks of George and Ira Gershwin ("They Can't Take That Away from Me"), Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn ("Something to Live For"), Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart ("Wait Till You See Him"), and Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer ("I Wonder What Became of Me"). Ellis fans will definitely want this set, as so little of her material remains in print.
