"Jimmy Roselli's version of "Little Pal" has been adopted by mob guys and adapted to their way of life, to the constant threat of leaving their loved ones, e...
Great song for the innocent victims.
such a great song, i want my son to hear this to understand a little better!
Some of the comments ppl have left on my youtube page for this vid are very sad, losing their pops. Heartbreaking...
Very nice .Who doesn't want there son or sons to do better.
Always thought of mob music in terms of 1950s Doo Wop (Dion,The Cadillacs,The Five Satins,etc...) or Big Band/Sinatra/Tony Bennett...Have heard of Jimmy Roselli as a local favorite NY artist in the '70s though,believe he was mentioned in the book "Donnie Brasco" selling his records from his car trunk during The Feast and Tony Mirra was angered by it.He's pretty good actually!.
This is the SONG that made the wiseguys WEEP. Roselli's beautiful music had the flavor of "the old country" which they missed. The Luciano crew ran the music industry and the jukeboxes.When Roselli broke ties with them all his records were taken out of the jukeboxes. Sinatra who was in tight with the Luciano crew stopped the radio stations from playing Roselli's music.This is why he was selling his records at the Feast. But guess who was sitting FRONT and CENTER at Roselli's shows...the Wiseguys with their MOTHERS. Their MOTHERS wouldn't let them clip Roselli. The women SAVED HIM.
Thanks,DaLenosgirl,for the great song and story.I did some research on Jimmy and his music was around before my '70s comment.I didn't know of Ol' Blue Eyes involvement,must've been jealous of Jimmy.I do know Frank himself was almost on Sam Giancana's hit parade back in the early '60s.Yes,the mob was very big in the music industry back years ago,especially bootlegging albums.The jukebox racket was also big back in the '40s,'50s with Joey Gallo leading the charge (my personal favorite gangster).I'm going to buy some of Jimmy's music for my listening pleasure and thanks again for getting me hep to it!.
