Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: HELLO ITALY (1963)/KNEES UP, MOTHER BROWN (1963).
Translators: G.C. Testoni; A.B. Tea; Francesco Migliacci.
This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Ames Brothers LPs, Hello Italy and Knees Up, Mother Brown. Both albums were issued in 1963 on Epic, and together contain two-dozen tracks dominated by Italian songs such as "Volare," "Dammi Dammi Dammi," and "Ciao Ciao Bambina" along with parody songs like "When Banana Skins Are Falling (I'll Come Sliding Back to You)," "When Grandma Got Her Teeth in Upside Down," and "(If I Had My Life to Live Over) I'd Live Over a Grocery Store." While this is a strange combination, the albums sound great and work well as individual entities. ~ Al Campbell
