Biography

It’s been nearly ten years since Dean Martin departed this earth, but the man’s stature as an artist and icon continues to grow. His importance to generations of music fans (not to mention aficionados of masculine cool) now far outstrips his former reputation as the tippler of the Rat Pack¹s tuxedoed triumvirate or Jerry Lewis’ crooning straight man. He was, simply ... Read more in Amazon's Dean Martin Store

The Music is good, but I don't understand the Title. Where were they lost? There's not a single song that I don't have already on several cd's.

An Extensive Collection of Hits 20 Sept. 2012
By WarrenS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This collection of Dean Martin's Reprise singles covers all of his twenty charting hits between 1964 and 1969. Some of these recordings can be found on other compilations, but it is very hard to find one release that has all of them. What is missing from his Reprise years is "From The Bottom of My Heart" #91 and "Sam's Song" #94 with Sammy Davis Jr. Also not included are the eleven singles that made the "Bubbling Under" Billboard chart. One of those was "Gentle On My Mind" which reached #2 in the U.K. This collection would seem to be ideal for the fan of Dean's 60's hits. There is one problem and that is with the mastering of this release. The audio levels between the songs are all over the map. "In The Misty Moonlight" is twice as loud as "The Door Is Still Open To My Heart". If you have access to a CD burning program like NERO, it is possible to make a copy of the disk with more uniform audio levels. It shouldn't be necessary to redo the job of the mastering engineer to achieve a pleasant listening experience. The rather strange wide stereo separation between the chorus and the band seems to be from the original studio mix since other collections of these songs sound the same. Other than the issue of volume levels, the CD is a good choice for collecting these fine Dean Martin songs.

2015 Update: There is a fine alternate choice now available for fans of Dean’s recordings. Sony has released a 2-CD collection of songs that include five of his Capitol hits, plus twenty of his twenty two U.S. charting Reprise singles. The only songs missing are “Sam’s Song” and “Not Enough Indians”. Also not included is his number two 1969 U.K. hit “Gentle On My Mind”. As a bonus, you get some of his singles that didn’t make the Billboard chart and lots of “B” sides. They even threw in “Drinking Champagne” which was issued by Warner Brothers in 1983. This Sony release seems to be selling at a very attractive price and that makes it a strong challenger to the Collector’s Choice offering.

Fairly Thorough Coverage Of His 27 Reprise Hit Singles 16 Jun. 2012
By AvidOldiesCollector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first part of Dean Martin's long association with that elusive commodity known as the hit single began in 1948 with Johnny Mercer's Capitol Records where, to 1959, he would register 18, the best of which were (in terms of commercial success), late 1953's That's Amore from the Martin-Lewis comedy The Caddy which made it to # 2, followed by Memories Are Made Of This, # 1 in late 1955/early 1956 with The Easy Riders. The backing orchestra on both was that of his long-time associate Dick Stabile. In May 1958, with Gus Levene & His Orchestra backing, he had a # 4 with Return To Me.

Off the charts through all of 1960 and 1961, as well as most of 1962, he resurfaced in December of that year with buddy Frank Sinatra's Reprise Records, although the commercial results weren't encouraging at the start. From The Bottom Of My Heart (Dammi, Dammi, Dammi) on Reprise 20,116 could only manage a weak # 91 Billboard Pop Hot 100 b/w In A Little Spanish Town (some pressings had Who's Got The Action as the flip), while a late December duet with Sammy Davis, Jr. on a cover of the 1950 Gary & Bing Crosby # 3 hit, Sam's Song, did even worse at # 94 on Reprise 20,128 b/w Me And My Shadow, a duet involving Frank & Sammy which did much better at # 64. The backing orchestras were, respectively, Chuck Sagle and Billy May. None of the four sides are here.

He would have nothing chart through all of 1963 and half of 1964 before clicking with his cover of a 1948 Columbia Records release by Frank, Everybody Loves Somebody. Released on Reprise 0281 b/w A Little Voice, with the Ernie Freeman orchestra backing, it surged to # 1 Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary (AC), a chart introduced in late 1961, and from that point on he would seldom be off either chart until around 1973, although his Pop results would always languish well below his AC listings with just 3 Top 10 hits.

The arrangements with Reprise meant that Dean owned the masters of everything recorded and for whatever reason they fell out of print towards the end of his life, which came on Christmas Day, 1995 at age 78. Sometime later his estate made the necessary arrangements to have his extensive catalogue released through various outlets, including this one from Collector's Choice which covers his Reprise Hot 100 hit singles - in chronological order - from 1964 to 1969. I have repeated the tracks in the Comments below showing their chart status and backing bands.

Unfortunately, what they skip over were some pretty decent Adult Contemporary hits, starting with the 2-sided late summer 1968 entry April Again (# 9 AC/# 105 Hot 100 Bubble Under) and That Old Time Feelin' (# 19 AC/# 104 Hot 100 Bubble Under) on Reprise 0761 with the Glen D. Hardin orchestra backing. Another omission is his March 1969 cover of Gentle On My Mind which made it to # 9 AC/# 103 Hot 100 Bubble Under on Repise 0812 (again with Hardin).

The last one in this volume is August 1969's cover of the Merle Haggard Country # 3 I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am (see Comments), but after that he would register four more AC hits, none of which are here: One Cup Of Happiness (And One Peace Of Mind) - # 15 AC/# 107 Hot 100 Bubble Under in October 1969 on Reprise 0857 b/w Crying Time; Detroit City - # 36 AC/# 101 Hot 100 Bubble Under in November 1970 on Reprise 0955 b/w Turn The World Around; She's A Little Bit Country - # 36 AC in May 1971 on Reprise 1004 b/w Raining In My Heart; and Get On With Your Livin' - # 50 AC in August 1973 on Reprise 1166 b/w Smile. These all remain the "Long Lost Reprise Hits."

Another drawback to this release is the sound quality which will probably not appeal to audiophiles (it isn't bad per se), nor should you look for extensive, comprehensive liner notes. They are minimal.
