Album Description
2011. He wrote 'Sing, Sing, Sing'. He presided over the hottest act on the Las Vegas Strip. And 100 years ago, on December 7, 1910, Louis Prima was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, continuing a long line of musical legends to hail from the Crescent City. Now, we at 'Collectors' Choice Music' are proud to add Louis Prima to the long list of musical legends on our label, as we commemorate the august occasion of his 100th birthday with a 24-track collection of hits and rarities straight from Louis' own Prima label archives! Among the unreleased tracks are a duet with Gia Maione Prima, 'I Can't Believe That You're in Love with Me'; studio takes of 'Topolino' and 'I've Got You under My Skin', and live-in-Las Vegas renditions of 'Oh, Marie' and 'Little Green Apples'. The come more uproarious, live-in-Vegas performances of 'Las Vegas Woman; Them There Eyes/Ol'Man River', and 'Dinga Won't Ding'; followed by rare studio recordings of 'Angelina; Civilization; Just a Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody; Robin Hood; Story `Bout the Dor; I'm Confessin'; I Wanna Be Like You; As Time Goes By; It's Impossible; Cold, Cold Heart/Little Mother; Buona Sera; Che La Luna; Joanna; Sugar; Sing, Sing, Sing' and 'I'm Leaving You'.
