Santo & Johnny

Slave Girl
Santo & Johnny
Arranged and Conducted by Bob Davie
Canadian American Records, LTD
CALP 1001

Top notch steel guitar based mood/swing set featuring creative arranging and excellent engineering.

From the back cover: In April, 1959, the haunting, magical guitar sounds of Santo and Johnny first floated over the air waves, and two Brooklyn youths were on their way to stardom. Several Weeks later, their initial recording, "Sleepwalk", zoomed up to the number one song all over America.

Theirs is a wonderful and heartwarming success story – of two brothers, Santo 21, and Johnny 19, working and living with one goal always foremost in their minds – a burning desire for success. And that desire has paid off in great abundance. To date, the boys have traveled all over the United States, doing numerous television shows, night club and personal appearances, climaxed by their appearance on the Perry Como Show, an opportunity afforded very few young performers.

Now, Canadian American Records proudly presents their first album entitled simply, "Santo and Johnny".
