Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
20 pop songs recorded in Italian, or at least in English with heavily Italian-oriented themes, for RCA in the 1950s and 1960s. This is Italian or Italo-American pop at its most middle-of-the-road and sentimental, which could serve as either a recommendation or a warning. Includes selections by Lou Monte, Perry Como, Sergio Franchi, Domenico Modugno the massive hit "Volare", and even a number by Sophia Loren, among others.
