UC282 – Beats from the Boot – pt. 11

I admit we’re scratching the bottom of the Barolo barrel, tho’ I’m sure the pieces we found are all more than enjoyable. An d they should be all uncomped! Mostly, this time they come from (in)famous singing stars which may have had hits or won at the many San Remo blueprint "Festivals" of Italy, many of whom  enjoyed  a more or less long career, but accidently left the commercial road for a one off shot.  We’ll meet 12 yo boys (Mauro Ingafù), ladies who did a desperate latest jump on the Beat train (Wanda Romanelli), Italian singing guys from Spain (Los Marblau) and Germany (Wiking Groth) (both with heavy accents), only Yugoslavian pressings (Ennio Galli), and 2 unfortunate guys who died in a car crash at the age of 19 (Jean Luk)  or were electrocuted while taking a shower (Claude Francois, RiP). All in alphabetical order, this time, from 1962 to 1969 which creates a varying, mostly sunny soundscape with blows of fresh winds, and, sometimes, off the road cover versions that even top the original (like I’m a Believer, Sha la la la, and Barbara Ann)  I have to thank my friends from the fb page “Beat& Rock’n’Roll Italiano” (www.facebook.com/groups/160225698043329/) for many good leads to uncomped Italian nuggets (read: URL and yt links, all mentioned in the booklet). Also, for those who don’t speak Italian, I’ve translated the group’s name s and song titles, to give a slight idea of what the song might be about (from "When I was a baby " to Ugolino’s massively distorted "Oh whadda lovely day ‘t was”).  A Ulì Ulè!
