Louis Prima and Keely Smith were at the height of their fame when they starred in the Hollywood film Hey Boy! Hey Girl! This soundtrack album has ten numbers from the film including spots for Prima's trumpet on "Oh Marie" and "When the Saints Go Marching In," two numbers for Smith in which she is backed by the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, a feature for Sam Butera on "Fever" and several notable vocal duets by the stars (including "Lazy River" and two versions of the title cut). The music never quite cuts loose but does include some exciting moments. Louis Prima fans will want to search for this collector's item.
