Hey pallies, likes today is 'nother outstandin' day in all of Dino-history. Courtesy of our amazin' pallie Mark R. over at his fabulous blog "popculturefanboy," comes the news that on this very Dino-day in 1955 our Dino recorded a batch of songs in Capitol Recordin' studios. A quartet of Dino-tunes were done in a mere three hours, includin' the huge hit, "Memories Are Made Of This" and one of my all-time person fav Dino-songs, "The Lucky Song" from my all-time fav Dino and the kid flick, "Artists And Models."
We sez our thanks for pallie Mark's faithfulness to rememberin' and postin' these stellar Dino-remembrances of great dates in our great man's great recordin' career.
