Think of Italian song, and you’ll probably immediately think of “Volare”.

Almost certainly the most frequently recorded Italian song into many different languages.  But did you know that in the 1960’s many British and American singers sang their hits in Italian in an attempt to conquer that market?

This remarkable and hugely enjoyable album celebrates the efforts of singers such as Neil Sedaka, Marianne Faithfull , Chubby Checker, Andy Williams
and many others as they re-sing their original English language hits in Italian!

A highly informative booklet sheds light onto this fascinating chapter of pop music of the sixties and shows us some of the original artwork used too.
