Marino Marini is probably best remembered as the man who gave the world "Volare" – the international hit that also helped give Dean Martin
a great song here in the US! Yet way past that one tune, Marini served up a whole host of great records in the 50s and early 60s – the kind of light, playful songs that really helped the Italian scene rise out of the doldrums of the postwar years, and point the way towards groovier styles in the 60s! The passage covered by these tunes really shows that evolution in a great way – as the set features 72 tracks that include touches of jazz, Latin, and even a bit of electric early rock and roll – all presented in the usual great Fremeux style, with notes in English and French. Titles include "Volare", "Come Prima", "Balliamo Il Twist", "Da Da Um Pa", Casanova", "El Mareito", "Jaqueline", "Rico Vacillon", "Donne E Pistole", "Hogi Baba", "Bebe", "Capricciosa"," Nanassa", and "Che C'E Conce".
