Dean Martin Dream With Dean: The Intimate Dean Martin on Hybrid Stereo SACD from Analogue Productions
One of the great lounge singers of the pre-rock era, Dean Martin hit his stride as a cultural icon during his years with Reprise, knocking the Beatles off the top of the charts in August 1964 with a dreamy contemporary take on "Everybody Loves Somebody (Sometime)," a standard he'd sung on Bob Hope's radio show in 1948 that became one of his theme songs, a sentiment so universal it's on his gravestone.
A multi-faceted artist whose talents crossed media boundaries, Dean Martin has three stars on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame: one for recording, one for movies, and one for television, where he introduced Americans to Celebrity Roasts in the 1970's. The genius of Dean Martin is that he made everything sound easy and classy and fun. Relaxed and comfortable, with a beatific self-assurance that transcended confidence, Dino was truly one of a kind.
On his Reprise Recordings, the King of Cool was also at his most soulful. One of the crooner's best-charting albums, 1964's Dream with Dean (subtitled "the intimate Dean Martin") - anchored by Dino's aforementioned signature rendition of "Everybody Loves Somebody" - gets the Analogue Productions Hybrid Stereo SACD treatment with a newly remastered reissue culled from the original analog tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound.
