Bandleader/singer/trumpeter LOUIS PRIMA, who'd enjoyed huge successes in the 1930s and '40s, mounted a major comeback in the 1950s, after teaming up with Keely Smith and Sam Butera & The Witnesses.

This compilation, which is one of a closely-linked trilogy, presents the Very Best of Prima's solo recordings for Columbia, Jubilee and Capitol between 1952-59, with the emphasis very much on his 1956-59 Capitol output.

Bandleader/singer/trumpeter LOUIS PRIMA, who'd enjoyed huge successes in the 1930s and '40s, mounted a major comeback in the 1950s, after teaming up with Keely Smith and Sam Butera & The Witnesses.

This compilation, which is one of a closely-linked trilogy, presents the Very Best of Prima's solo recordings for Columbia, Jubilee and Capitol between 1952-59, with the emphasis very much on his 1956-59 Capitol output.

It features pre-Capitol collectors' items like 'The Bigger The Figure', 'Luigi' and 'Man, Dig That Crazy Chick', although twenty-one of the twenty-five sides are from his Capitol output.

These include singles like 'Buona Sera' (a UK hit), '5 Months, 2 Weeks, 2 Days' and 'Banana Split For My Baby', alongside tracks from the hit albums 'The Wildest', 'The Call Of The Wildest', 'The Wildest Show At Tahoe', 'Las Vegas Prima Style', 'Hey Boy! Hey Girl!' and 'Strictly Prima'.

The punters who buy this one, will soon realise that they have to buy the other two releases in this series!
