CD Reviews

Double Dino Dynomite
Joseph Panzarella | West Islip, New York | 01/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This two disc set is loaded with goodies. Disc one kicks off with an intro from Dino telling us about his latest Capitol recording "Memories Are Made Of This". Also included are plenty of duets by Dino with: Peggy Lee, Jerry Lewis, and Nat King Cole, five previously unreleased tracks, and a previously unreleased "live" medley from 1959 recorded at the Moulin Rouge in Hollywood backed by the Dick Stabile Orchestra. One of the previously unreleased treasures is a track titled "Be An Angel", Dino recorded this track in 1961, it wasn't available until 1965 on an import long play album, the version on this disc is in true stereo which really adds beauty to this track. The booklet included with the set has extensive liner notes and lots of pictures of Dino's Capitol singles with some original picture covers, pictures of Dino in the recording studio with Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. It also has a listing of other Capitol cd's that Dino appears on. This Dino compilation is well worth the price."
A Beautiful Voice
Amanda | Encino, CA | 10/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dean Martin's voice is much like satin, smooth to listen to, yet exhuding the mood of his songs to perfection. The entire CD is great for anyone who may have heard of him, such as his inclusion of the Rat Pack, or may have appreciated one of his hits such as "Amore". This extensive collection features what an incredible performer he truly was, with a velvet voice that was extremely underratred when compared to the success of his fellow Rat Packer Frank Sinatra. Although it is not by any means just for oldies' fans, is relaxing and wonderful to hear- it makes me smile. I had only heard very little of his work, but was interested enough to buy this- I have not regretted it, and listen to it often on my CD player, instead of the current top hits on the radio ( I am 24). A great buy,and is better, in my estimation, than Frank Sinatra's greatest hits CDs. He had a remarkable voice and talent. It is great also because it includes many smooth love songs, as well as upbeat big-band type songs as well."
Memories are indeed made of this!

"You start with the single disc ``Capitol Collectors Series.'' You wear that out. You want more Dino. This is the place to go next. Thoughtfully arranged with lots of prime rarities and a great live medley. (For more live Dino, check out The Summit CD.) Beautiful booklet comes with the set with lots of classic Dino photos (including many with the Chairman) along with informative background on the 40 cuts here. I wish Reprise would release a compilation like this for Martin's later years. Maybe they will by the time I wear out these two discs."
