Product Description

This is a tribute to Joe De Luca and his music. Joe was the first Italian rock artist to sing about Italy in English. Click here to listen to Joe De Luca (Real audio)

If you don't have Real Audio installed in your computer get it here... it's free!!(Real audio) Here's a medley of his songs from his last CD "Crash Barriers". I also chose the lyrics from 2 of his songs: "Magnum JDL" and "Rome Blues". Joe was the first artist to sing the blues about Rome, and to sing about Italian immigrants in America in English...

-------------------------------------------- Magnum JDL

(music by JOE DE LUCA) (lyrics by JOE DE LUCA and PETER REGINALD HALLAM)

Land of opportunity, told my Grandpa streets were paved with gold. From the port of Napoli, 'cross the ocean sleepin' in the hold.

He was to find that it wasn't so, no guarantees " The land of the free". Fight to survive on 5th Avenue, carryin' wherever he went.

Under his coat ... not a Colt, a Magnum JDL. He held her close, seven shells 100 decibels.

Endless winter came and went, took 1000 jobs to make some dough, sleepin' rough couldn't pay the rent. Times were tough, he wouldn't let it show.

" I need a gun with me on the road ", somebody said at 'Café and Cream'. He had to prove he'd got what it takes, runnin' whisky, rye by the load.

Under his coat ... not a Colt, a Magnum JDL. He held her close, seven shells 100 decibels.

Stood on 52nd street, white silk handkerchief, gold watch and chain. Windy City " family " says ... bad for business Johnny what's-his-name.

Summer aflame the lorry sold 'Ice', two guys got out - it didn't seem right. " This is a hit, hey Johnny De Luca ! ", tried to take him by surprise.

Under his coat ... not a Colt, a Magnum JDL. He held her close, seven shells 100 decibels.

He held her close, sent them sons of bitches straight to hell !!!

Rome Blues

(music by JOE DE LUCA) (lyrics by JOE DE LUCA and PETER REGINALD HALLAM)

On a Roman holiday, strolling down the Palatine. The Eternal City great!? This infernal city's mine. Coliseum traffic lights, they're like lions in a cage. See the 'Christians' on the stripes, now it's green they're givin' chase.

Long ago when the 'Dolce Vita' reigned, cast her spell drivin' everyone insane! She's my Muse, now I sing, now I sing Rome Blues.

Signorina you're too much, always just outside the reach. - You can look but you can't touch -, yes, I heard the Papa preach. Juliets and Romeos, I was feeling all alone. Gigolettes and gigolos, as they say now ' When in Rome...'

Golden age that was 40 years ago, all the rage on the Via Veneto. Nowadays all that's left is the mem'ry but...

I chase the night thru those narrow alleyways, I taste the 'Sweet Life'... Everywhere lanterns burn bright. I drank the wine, crawled along those cobblestones, yeah, all the way home! Time of my life all the while singin' Rome... Rome Blues.

Carla Bruni Spanish steps, earns 10.000 bucks a day. Down and outs, drinkin' dregs, - Stand in line! -, for bread they wait. Trevi Fountain time to go... Yeah, your time is running out. Cast a coin and then who knows..? 'nother time will come around.

Say goodbye like Fellini so unfair, in the pool dissolve moments of despair, shed a tear now he's gone but his name lives on...

I chase the night thru those narrow alleyways, I taste the 'Sweet Life'... Everywhere lanterns burn bright. I drank the wine, crawled along those cobblestones, yeah, all the way home! Time of my life all the while singin' Rome... Rome Blues.

Long ago when the 'Dolce Vita' reigned, cast her spell drivin' everyone insane! She's my Muse, now I'll sing, now I'll sing them yes...

I chase the night thru those narrow alleyways, I taste the 'Sweet Life'... Everywhere lanterns burn bright. I drank the wine, crawled along those cobblestones, yeah, all the way home! Time of my life all the while singin' Rome... Rome Blues.
