Overview

What Louis Prima accomplished musically in the company of Sam Butera and the Witnesses and vocalist Keely Smith is in hard evidence on this excellent 26-track compilation. All the classics are aboard with excellent liner notes from Scott Shea and crisp transfers of the original masters ("Angelina-Zooma Zooma," "That Old Black Magic," "I've Got You Under My Skin," "Buona Sera" -- which includes a great snippet of studio chatter kicking it off -- "Oh Marie," and the obligatory "Just a Gigolo-I Ain't Got Nobody"). Although this duplicates several tracks with Rhino's Zooma! Zooma! compilation, with the addition of several singles and unissued tracks, this stands as the best single-disc collection available of Prima's tenure with Capitol Records. The perfect place to start your Louis Prima collection.

I grew up with Louis Prima. My parents played his music along with many other wonderful artists and these songs are pure happiness to me. Each one is a signature Louis Prima song. Louis' "Just a Giggolo" is probably the best known due only to David Lee Roth covering it on his solo attempt but people, we must remember where Dave got it from. "Jump, Jive and Wail" will get you up and dancing like nobody's watching. This song has been re-released by many but no one does it like Louis. Each song brings back happy memories of my wonderful childhood and I can still hear my daddy laugh from sheer delight in this music. This is a must have for any real music lover/officianato.
