"Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just For You" is the second
studio albumfrom the Academy Awardwinning actorand singer Joe Pesci.
The idea for the album originated from Pesci's character, Vincent LaGuardia Gambini, from his
1992movie My Cousin Vinny. In the movie, Pesci starred as Vinny, an inexperienced lawyerwho 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 2006film, The Good Shepherd, where he played Joseph Palmi.
The album was released on
October 13 1998under the Sonylabel. It is stamped with a parental advisorysticker for explicit content. A music videowas 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?".
