The Rat Race directed by Robert Mulligan starred Debbie Reynolds and Tony Curtis and the original score was composed by Elmer Bernstein. The music played here by Sam Butera & the Witnesses (basically the band he put together on the side while playing with Louis Prima and Keely Smith) is not the original soundtrack from the picture, though it might seem that way from the cover, which uses a Paramount Studios promo pic for the front. The music here is a great deal rowdier than the tracks from the film, rawer, looser and still retaining its inherent swing.

Butera responded extemporaneously, "The Witnesses", and the name stuck. Butera remained the bandleader of The Witnesses for the better part of the next twenty years. During that time, he performed with Louis Prima and/or Keely Smith on such Prima-associated classics as "That Old Black Magic", "Dig That Crazy Chick", "Just a Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody," "Come on-a My House," and "I Wan'na Be Like You" (from Disney's The Jungle Book). Sam Butera appeared in a Joe Piscopo HBO special. Butera played a part in the movie The Rat Race (1960), starring Debbie Reynolds and Tony Curtis. He played a scam artist along with Joe Bushkin who fleeced Curtis out of his instruments. The music can be heard on the LP and the CD released by Dot as a soundtrack of The Rat Race.
