The Very Best Of Dean Martin (2CD SET)

Format: 2CD
Bar-code: 5060143497940
Cat No: NOT2CD794


In the richest possible sense of the word, Dean Martin epitomised easy listening music. Perched on a bar stool, cigarette smouldering in one hand, a drink never far from the other… While all the while, that distinctive, seductive crooning voice made everything sound so easy.The songs that fill this 2CD set have captivated listeners for generations. Like the families who flocked to see Dino and the Rat Pack in action in Las Vegas, in faraway Memphis a young Elvis Presley cited Dean Martin as his favourite singer. But Dino was proud of his Italian heritage, and this was reflected in his choice of songs over the years, many of which can be found here: On An Evening In Roma… Buona Sera… Write To Me From Naples… Mambo Italiano… In Napoli… Come Back To Sorrento (Torna A Surriento)…For many however, the essence of Dean Martin is in the recordings he made at his peak which are featured here. Comedian, movie star, legend… Dean Martin was all of those, but it was as a singer he wanted to be remembered. And here are forty reasons why…
