Honeymoon In Rome (small rodents included)
The album starts out innocently enough with a mandolin, a voice, a guitar, some bells, a triangle, then it happens. Are those nutty squirrels, chipmunks? Wha' happened? You've just entered the world of Renato Carasone - a spicy Italian sausage sandwich filled with parts of Esquivel, Raymond Scott, Dean Martin and Ross Bagdasarian. A tasty mixture, indeed, awaits your ears. By the time this LP was released in the states in 1956, Renato was a big name in his native Italy. Give this a spin and you'll wonder why he wasn't as big as Topo Gigio here.
Ripped from vinyl @ 320 by yours truly. Scans included.
