1905: Composer Annunzio Paolo Mantovani, better known by just his last name, is born in Venice, Italy. The light orchestra-styled entertainer would prove to be one of England's most successful album acts prior to The Beatles, becoming the first British act to sell more than one million stereo albums. In 1959, he had six albums simultaneously in the U.S. Top 30. He died at age 74 on March 29, 1980.
