Orietta Berti


Orietta Berti - Gli Anni Della Polydor 1963-1978 My email buddy calls her the Italian Skeeter Davis. They both had good voices and shared pop tastes although Skeeter is country music. I really liked the first disc of this box set. It's Orietta covering the likes of Lesley Gore and Dusty Springfield. It's enjoyable fluff. The other cds contain more original material and it ends in a folk album called Zingari. Orietta is rarely talked about when it comes to Italian divas. She's overlooked.
