Gotta love the Prima!. Very exciting stuff that must have been a gas to hear live. He performed with Sam Butera and the Witnesses. In the band was his wife, Keely Smith.
She was a good singer who occasionally had a film role here or there. Most notably in Robert Mitchum's 'Thunder Road'. You can refer to it as a Mitchum film because he wrote it, produced it, starred in it, wrote the title song, performed the title song, and fathered the main supporting actor.
David Lee Roth thought he could do Prima with Just a Gigolo. I don't think anyone who's heard the original would think so.
