Mario del Monaco sings Cowboy

Who says crossover is new? "Yippee yi-yay Yippeee yay-oooo !" Mario del Monaco (1915-1980), sings Ghost Riders in the sky with Italianate operatic flourish! "Awe inspiring and hilarious in equal measure", says the friend who sent it to me. You bet. Enjoy the flatulent brass underscoring del Monaco's heroic approach.
