Format: Audio CD
Dean Martin had two separate hit-making periods - in the fifties with Capitol and in the sixties with Reprise. The early sixties were not successful in the charts, although Dean continued to record albums and was also kept busy in other ways. You would normally have to buy one album to get his Capitol music and another to get his Reprise music. This collection spans both periods, although there is also a second volume, so you may end up buying two CD's anyway.

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.

In my record/cd collection, I have stacks and stacks of Sinatra and Tony Bennett, etc but only one Dean Martin tape....a very old one. I recently saw the outstanding "Rat Pack" in London and was reminded of the great songs Dean recorded. I've had this cd for a week and it's brilliant. If you are hesitating as to whether or not you should buy it...DON'T! Twenty one excellent tunes sung in that irresistible style....I've been singing them all week!

Before I bought this CD I was someone who only had a passing interest in Dean Martin, now I am a die hard fan! This is the best CD I have ever owned, and it comes with my highest recommendation. There is not a single track that isn't of the highest quality, but the highlights are: "Everybody Loves Somebody", and "Your Nobody 'til..." This truely is a masterpiece, and a worth gift for Christmas, anyone would apreciate.

I'd heard some of these songs years ago but I'd forgotten how good they were.
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.

There is no question that this is the ultimate Dean Martin collection on one disc. It doesn't have them all, but it has the one's we know, and then some. The things that strike you about this artist and this collection are the timelessness of the voice and the music, you simply will not believe "That's Amore" was a hit in 1953! The quality of the tracks and Martin's voice is astonishing. While Sinatra often stole the limelight and sales rank from his long term side-kick, Dino's own richness and 'easy' approach comes across in this collection shading any Sinatra effort when it comes to effortless style. I defy anyone to avoid singing along or humming the melodies afterward.
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!

Since Dean and Frank died, and the crooners are back in vogue. Especially Dino. And this is probably the CD that did it. In amongst all the bubblegum pop in the album charts, Dean stayed up high for ages. And that's because this CD is one of the few worthy of Dean- a slick compilation of his best & best loved songs. Classic.

As a person with musical tastes that stretch from Handel to John Lennon I still find a special place for this man.Dean Martin certainly is the king of cool.This compilation showcases his wonderful smooth voice superbly with an excellent cross section of songs.From the opening 'Gentle On My Mind' and onwards to the catchy 'You're Nobody 'Til Sombody Loves You' to the ending 'Everybody Loves Somebody' this album is class.The ultimate 'crooner' selection but with that Dino touch to each song.My own favourite is 'Houston', but all tracks are memorable.An album to relax with and enjoy at quiet times.Highly recommended!
