Really Famous People Doing Volare (1) - Ella Fitzgerald

A new occasional series for Eurocovers. Artists that need no introduction having their way with the Classic of all Classics still heard in pizzeria's and concert halls around the world, Dominico Modugno's Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu, also known as Volare, the 1958 San Remo Winner, Eurovision loser and the best selling, most covered, only grammy winning Eurovision song ever.
If there's any 'Volare' aficionado's out there (I know there are) I'd like to get in contact, exchange information, compare lists, write a book...

Ella Fitzgerald's Volare can be found on EP Volare (Verve) and also on LP 1964 Hello Dolly.

The LP Hello Dolly was re-issued on CD in 2005 and is avalable from your local shop and the usual Amazons and CD-ONs.
