Way Out West was a 1966 rock n' roll studio album by legendary film star Mae West. The album consisted mainly of West singing covers of popular rock songs of the day. Teen rock band Somebody's Chyldren provided instrumental accompaniment.

The album was a surprise best seller, peaking at #116 on the Billboard Hot 200 LP chart although there were no original hit singles from the collection. West was 72 at the time, making her the oldest woman to ever have a solo album on the Billboard Hot 200 chart, a long-held record broken in 2011 by Wanda Jackson, then 73, with her The Party Ain't Over release.
