Overview

There's no way Keely Smith will ever be able to escape the long shadow of Louis Prima, whose fourth wife she was and who led the band where she found her greatest fame. Heard apart from Prima, she was a fantastic vocalist, the equal of more respected singers like Chris Connor or Helen Merrill, who were working a much different circuit than Smith during the late '50s and early '60s. The Essential Capitol Collection is an excellent way to survey Keely Smith's early career; it includes 27 songs, including much of her several LPs for the label, as well as her most popular duets with Prima and two with Frank Sinatra.

This takes me back to when I was a very little girl, my Mom, and Dad would play this music, and dance the night away. I loved Keely Smith, this brings back warm memories, all her music, she had the very best singing sound. Love this, if your in your middle 50's you'll remember and love Keely Smith, "NOW THIS IS REAL MUSIC".
