Top Customer Reviews
This collection contains most of the songs that are associated with Dean, including Memories are made of this, That's amore, Volare, You're nobody till somebody loves you, In the chapel in the moonlight, Houston and Everybody loves somebody. Dean's first solo hit, Powder your face with sunshine, is also included. It was no match for Evelyn Knight's version, which was number one for many weeks, but it was a start. Evelyn was at the peak of her career while Dean was just beginning.
Dean is often compared to Frank Sinatra, but their music was quite different. I enjoy both of them in different ways. While Frank's music was rooted in the big band sound of the late thirties, Dean's was altogether more relaxed - Dean was the classic crooner. In the sixties, his music took on a country flavor. It was never country enough for him to establish credibility amongst diehard country music fans, but for those who enjoy both pop and country music, Dean's sixties music is particularly appealing. Dean does not twang, so a lot of people who don't like country music can still enjoy his music.
If you only ever buy one Dean Martin album, this is the one to buy. You can always add volume 2 later.
It was a real pleasure to rediscover Deano, especially the wonderful 'Gentle on my Mind', my favourite track. But it's so hard to knock any of these songs, they are incredibly mellow and laid back with superb vocalisation. They make you want to get up and dance.
The recordings are excellent quality - highly recommended.
A passive fan of this genre for many years, this CD is singly responsible for making me a die hard fan. You can hear him smile through the lyrics of 'Volare' and 'Gentle On My Mind', and these tracks, along with the stunning 'Sway' and big band anthem 'Ain't that a Kick In The Head', are the highlights that you just don't tire of. This collection will never be outside of arms reach from my CD player at home, in fact I'll buy a second copy for the car.
The only thing that's missing is 'King of The Road'. Luckily that's on Volume 2!
