Review

Canta Italia is perennial Italian sentimental crooner Al Bano's fourth album, specially recorded for the Spanish market. As usual, it is a compilation of sorts, although this time, rather than translating his own hits, Al Bano offers his own rendition of 20 all-time Italian classics sung in Spanish. Artists covered include all of the usual suspects: Riccardo Cocciante, Renato Carosone, Mina, and Adriano Celentano, etc. Ditto for the songs: "Margherita," "Tu Vuò fa' L'americano", "Volare," "Caruso," "Azzurro," "Corazón Gitano (Il Cuore è uno Zingaro)," and even a few Al Bano originals such as "Pensando en Ti (Pensando a Te)." ~ Mariano Prunes
