Of all the recordings in Capitol’s Live from Las Vegas series, this set by Louis Prima and Keely Smith with Sam Butera & the Witnesses is a standout. For Prima fans, it’s a treasure trove since only six of the disc’s 19 tracks have been previously issued in any form. Recorded in 1958 during the act’s long-running stint at the Sahara’s Casbah Theater and featuring superb editing that retains much of the stage banter and the pair’s often humorous antics, it offers listeners the spontaneity and feel of a single live set in the moment. The sound is simply stellar; warm, full, and immediate, its presence gives one the impression of being in the room. As evidenced here, Prima and Smith often worked out material in front of their nightly audiences.
