Nel blu dipinto di blu - Domenico Modugno
Following commercial success in Italy, where it sold almost a million copies, the song was also released in the United States and in the rest of Europe. In the United Kingdom, Modugno's single was released on 23 August 1958, together with eight other versions recorded by international artists. The single obtained global acclaim, becoming an international hit. However, somewhere along the line the song became better knows as... 'Volare'.
This single is an Italian pressing, presumably from 1958, on blue vinyl. I don't know, but it might be a real collector's item.
