Winter Dreams - Dean Martin
Enjoying great success in music, film, television, and the stage, Dean Martin was less an entertainer than an icon, the eternal essence of cool. A member of the legendary Rat Pack, he lived and died the high life of booze, broads and bright lights, always projecting a sense of utter detachment and serenity; along with Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and the other chosen few who breathed the same rarefied air, Martin highball and cigarette always firmly in hand embodied the glorious excess of a world long gone. A Winter Romance is perhaps best described as a seasonal album rather than a Christmas or holiday release, however it does capture the essence of the season with classics such as White Christmas and Winter Wonderland With Sleep Warm Martin finally found a way to construct an album in the style of pal and rival Frank Sinatra s highly successful concept LPs: Bring Sinatra in as the conductor and centre the album on the concept of sleep. Both albums are presented here in their entirity.
