One of the strongest influences on American popular music has been the Italians. Originally it was the crooners and then it was the rock'n'rollers. The Italians The Next Generation gathers fifteen hits, all recorded by Italian-Americans, that helped shape the musical soundtrack of the '50s through the 1970s.
In addition to smash singles by singers including The Four Seasons, The Rascals, Annette Funicello, Bobby Darin, Dion DiMucci, and Jim Croce, the album also includes a 24 page booklet telling the story of the Italians, from their original immigration to their prominent place in popular music. As a special bonus, the package includes a DVD, featuring a short film "Growing Up Italian," narrated by Award-Winning actor Robert Loggia.
