Was listening to this fabulous sounding SACD tonight from Mobile Fidelity. This is likely Dean Martins best recording. He is in fantastic form, and the sound quality is fabulous - Capitol at its heyday. But Nelson Riddle really mailed this one in. It's like he came up with one arrangement and applied it to every song.

Still, a great album!

(FWIW), I really ,really like(d) Deano as an entertainer. His TV show was terrific! His art was to make it look easy to be an inebriated, barely-together buffoon. Nowadys, when you see something like that in the media, it is an actual inebriated, barely-together buffoon :p


Heck I like(d) his movies, too --- 'specially the Matt Helm movies! :)
Perhaps I shouldn't admit that in public(?)

Don't forget the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts ! I remember watching them years ago. I can get them on Amazon Video now, and they haven't aged well. Foster Brooks made a living being a faux inebriated so and so.

Now, just watching that She's My Kind of GIrl (right near the beginning) -- with the rollin' camera... if that wasn't rehearsed... that's phenomenal.

Fan of his TV show and the Matt Helm movies. :)

I loved the roasts. :)

Does anyone remember his movie 'Five Card Stud'?

I remember the roasts as absolutely hysterical and pretty edgy (in that self-consciously hip way of the entertainment industry) for their time -- but I was a kid and it was a different world, a long time ago. :-I
