2015 collection. The 1960s girl-pop compilations on the occasional Ace International and Big Beat International imprints rank among their most popular releases of recent years. Having hit upon a winning formula by hopping over the Channel to France for C'EST CHIC! And TRES CHIC!, and by venturing further afield to Japan for two volumes of NIPPON GIRLS, the label now turns the spotlight on Italy. The collection opens with Brunetta's prized dance floor-filler 'Baluba Shake' and closes with 'Cuore', a dramatic beat ballad by petite dynamo Rita Pavone. Star of the show is the prolific Mina - queen bee of Italy's female singers - with three tracks: 'No' (a wailing folk rock nugget), 'Più Di Te' (a cover of the Tracy Dey/Bob Crewe classic 'I Won't Tell') and 'Se Telefonando' (a sophisto-pop epic courtesy of maestro Ennio Morricone). 24 tracks.
