Bandleader, singer & trumpeter, Louis Prima, who’d enjoyed huge successes in the 1930s and ’40s, mounted a major comeback in the 1950s alongside his new wife Keely Smith and their band, Sam Butera & The Witnesses. This collection, which is one of a closely-linked trilogy, presents the very best of Louis Prima and Keely Smith’s duets for RCA Victor, Mercury, Columbia, Decca and Capitol, between 1949-1959. It features pre-Capitol collectors’ items like “Heap Big Smith (But No Fire)” (their first record together), “I Beeped When I Shoulda Bopped”, “Enjoy Yourself”, “Here Pretty Kitty”, “Oh Babe”, “Teardrops From My Eyes”, “Ooh-Dahdily-Dah”, etc. Their Capitol sides include the million selling “That Old Black Magic”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and tracks from the hit albums ‘The Wildest’, ‘The Wildest Show At Tahoe’, ‘Las Vegas Prima Style’ and ‘Hey Boy! Hey Girl’. The people who buy this one, will soon realise that they HAVE to buy the other to releases in this series!
