"Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just For You" is the second studio album from the Academy Award winning actor and singer Joe Pesci.

History

The idea for the album originated from Pesci's character, Vincent LaGuardia Gambini, from his 1992 movie My Cousin Vinny. In the movie, Pesci starred as Vinny, an inexperienced lawyer who comes to the rescue of his wrongly accused cousin, Billy Gambini, played by Ralph Macchio.

Before becoming a professional actor, Pesci was a lounge singer. When he announced his retirement from acting in 1999, he pursued a further career in singing. Pesci remained retired until his return to acting in Robert De Niro's 2006 film, The Good Shepherd, where he played Joseph Palmi.

The album was released on October 13 1998 under the Sony label. It is stamped with a parental advisory sticker for explicit content. A music video was produced for the song "Wise Guy", featuring Pesci reciting his lyrics in various mob-themed settings. "Wise Guy" recreates elements from the Blondie song "Rapture" and features a chorus lyrically similar to that of Fred Rogers' "Won't You Be My Neighbor?".
