    Does anyone know where I can find a copy of "Colors of My Life"? I love that track and can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Thanks!

    Was "And I Love you SO" ever released to the general public? This was one of the late and great Perry Como's songs, correct ??

    This is absolutely magnificent! I can't stop listening to Frankie's rendition of this Don McLean pop hit. Gorgeous orchestration, arranged (again) by the late Bill Rogers, with great subtle guitar work (Jim Fox) and trombone solo (Eddie Morgan). I have to say it is my favorite of all the tracks on the full album. A wonderful bonus—well worth the extra cost from QVC.

    Yes, it was covered by Perry Como. Elvis Presley, among others, also recorded the song.

    Frankie's Italian Recordings

    In commemoration of Frankie's birthday tomorrow (January 10th) and the 50th anniversary of his RCA Victor singles, this post recognizes his Italian recordings.

    The September 2, 1967 issue of Billboard reported, "Frank Sinatra Jr. (RCA-Italiana) is due in Rome to record in Italian." Frankie would sing the Migliacci-Farina-Pintucci-penned "Quando tanti soldi avrò" with Piero Pintucci's Orchestra and Rossini Pinto's "E' questa la mia vita" with Amedeo Tommasi's Orchestra. The latter is a reworded cover of Brazilian vocalist Roberto Carlos' "Só vou gostar de quem gosta de mim" (with Italian translation by Gaspari).

    At the time in the U.S., RCA Victor had released two singles by Frankie: Shadows On A Foggy Day / (As Long As You're Not In Love With Anyone Else) Why Don't You Fall In Love With Me (April 1967) and the recent Building With A Steeple / I've Been Lookin' (August 1967). The following year would bring Nothing Is More Important Than Love / I Want To Hear It From You (June 1968).


    The Italian recordings appeared as an RCA Victor single (N 1533) in Italy.


    An excerpt of "Quando tanti soldi avrò," the 45's A-side, was also featured on Auguri Dalla RCA Italiana [Greetings From RCA Italiana] promo sampler (RCA Italiana SPEC 7), one LP containing 56 tracks by various artists.


    "E' questa la mia vita" was included on a Brazilian collection of Italian recordings, RCA Victor's Più Fortissimo (BBL-210) in 1968.


    In Argentina, the recordings were retitled and flipped for Enamorado de quien me quiera / Cuando tenga dinero (RCA Victor 31A-1235).


    "Quando tanti soldi avrò" is a beautiful recording with a striking a cappella intro.
