Italian music a gogo : Rita Pavone

Rita Pavone was born in Turin in 1945 to family impoverished after the war.At a very young age,she worked as a seamstress for a meager 50 Swiss francs a week.Rita Pavone was little,but she had big dreams of becoming a famous singer.By 15,she had already won the "Festa degli Sconosciuti" talent contest for undiscovered young artists in Ariccia, near Rome.The organizer (and her later husband) Teddy Reno gave her the opportunity of a lifetime when he brought her to Rome's prestigious studios. With her small size and young age,she was an instant hit.She quickly rose to the top of the charts and in 1965 she was invited to appear on the leading American music show, the Ed Sullivan Show. She recorded hit after hit,in particular "Bye Bye Blue Jeans" in 1964 and "Arrivederci Hans" in 1968.In the late sixties,she performed at New York's Carnegie Hall and the Olympia in Paris.She sang throughout Europe,especially in Berlin where she was nicknamed the littlest singer of schlager in the world.

    Hi Bruno
    I don't know much about Rita Pavone so i found the info very useful.
    She seems to have a very frenetic girl sound on these tracks and i enjoyed the first one the most.
