The Gaylords - Sing American Hits In Italian

Ronnie Gaylord and Burt Bonaldie made up the singing duo of The Gaylords, a popular lounge pop act back in the 50's. Here is their American Hits, sung in Italian. In Yakety Yak, instead of "don't talk back" it's "shut upa you face" (long before the novelty number in the 70's).

01 Yakety Yak (1:52)
02 Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini (2:20)
03 Witch Doctor (2:16)
04 All Shook Up (1:51)
05 Oh Lonesome Me (2:32)
06 Blueberry Hill (2:19)
07 Charlie Brown (2:31)
08 Personality (2:33)
09 I'm Walking (2:16)
10 Only You (And You Alone) (2:37)
11 Sh-Boom (Life Could Be A Dream) (2:50)
12 Tom Dooley (2:51)

Also, I added a great little rock'n'roll number by The Gaylords from my 45 collection called "Ma Ma Ma Marie".

13 Ma Ma Ma Marie (2:03)
