O sole Mina

Mina is a very successful Italian popular singer. From wiki: "Mina's TV appearances in 1959 were the first for a female rock and roll singer in Italy. Her loud syncopated singing earned her the nickname Queen of Screamers. The public also labeled her the Tiger of Cremona for her wild gestures and body shakes." So, there's that.

By the time of this 1969 album she's unfortunately working more in the Las Vegas style of mild swing and over-blown ballads - she still has quite a set of pipes, though. "O sole mio" stirs the old Calabrian blood.
