The Avalanches - "Frankie Sinatra"
The Great calypsonian Wilmoth Houdini takes uncredited vocal turns in this video by the Avalanches for their single, "Frankie Sinatra." The sampled song is "Bobby Sox Idol," which Houdini recorded in the early 1940s to celebrate the young crooner who made female hearts flutter on concert stages, over radio airwaves, and on 78 rpm platters.
