    Ah, if only Dawg had known about Al Capone's interest in music, which led him to learn to play mandola, as well as tenor guitar and tenor banjo, and even write a song for and about his mother. He could have worked these proclivities, especially the composition, "Madonna Mia," into the soundtrack. But sadly (from a musicological standpoint), this interest arose while incarcerated; that is, while doing time, not while doing crime. And public knowledge of this didn't arise (AFAIK) until the sheet music came up for auction in 2009. Too bad. Perhaps this oversight can be addressed in time for the 50th Anniversary Special Edition Reissue.
