Louis Prima

Prima was a bandleader and a singer and he recorded vocal duets with his wife Keely Smith. But as a solo artist he only had one hit.

Louis Prima:

Wonderland By Night – The song was a hit for three artists at the same time. Anita Bryant was the only one of the three with words (it was about a one-night stand), and it placed third. Prima’s version placed a distant second to Bert Kaempfert’s whose record reached number one. Prima reached 15. From late 1960. (There is a vocal version by Prima on YouTube, but the hit version was instrumental.)
