Featuring Jose Melis

Blue Star (Melis) / Destine Me (Napoli)
Featuring Jose Melis
Spinorama Records M-75

Interesting release in that side two features Mike Di Napoli. The only way you know this is the look at the back cover.

Melis served as musical director of The Tonight Show when Jack Paar was host. He wrote Paar's theme song (Jack Paar Theme). Read more about Melis on Wikipedia.

From the back cover: Mike Di Napoli was with the Frank Petty Trio for 13 years. Mike has written many tunes which have been recorded by such famous personalities as the Mills Brothers, Tennessee Ford, Hank Snow etc. etc.
