10. Cha-Cha De Amor (1962)

Martin, Dean - Cha Cha De Amor - Music

“With a smoothe, velvety voice that brings me to tears, drop-dead handsome gorgeous good looks, an incredibly laid-back & irreverent stage presence and that Italian thing going on…Dean had it all! What a man! Too bad he was so under-recognized!”

9. French Style (1962)

Dean Martin – French Style (1962, Vinyl) - Discogs

“I have been looking for these French songs for years – an LP version was issued back in the 1960’s which I lost along the way – and I am very pleased this album has now been issued after so many years. I believe the French songs are brilliant (possibly with the exception of “Mimi” which has a strangely sharp vocal backing) and in general better than Dean Martin’s Italian songs. I do not like the “Latin” songs on this CD which are mainly in South American/Tango style and too “brassy” for my tastes.”

8. Dino: Italian Love Songs (1962)

Dean Martin – Dino (Italian Love Songs) (1973, Vinyl) - Discogs

“If your italian, married or dating one, or looking to date one, these songs are GOLD! Every romantic needs this CD in their collection to study and enjoy the full-bodied flavor of the Master “Dino” crooning these masterpieces.”

7. Dino Latino (1962)

Dino Latino by Dean Martin on Amazon Music -

“Excellent male vocal sound from an era where solo male voices and good clean music and melodies were popular. Dean, Frank, Ed Ames, Sammy Davis and many others brought such listenable music to many age groups. And they were a joy to see and hear in person without all the electronic enhancments.”

6. This Time I’m Swingin’! (1960)

Dean Martin – This Time I'm Swingin' (2013, SACD) - Discogs

“This is why he is called the king of swing. He is so smooth, every song is just swinging. Love the song arrangement, the sound , they did a good job matching his voice to the right songs.”

Dean Martin – Dean Martin's Greatest Hits! Vol. 1 (1968, Vinyl) - Discogs

4. A Winter Romance (1959)

A Winter Romance - Album by Dean Martin | Spotify

“Dino is at his artistic peak here, and his popularity in America was tremendously high at the time of this release. Don’t confuse this with a ‘holiday’ album. Yes, there are holiday songs like Rudolph and White Christmas, but the album is weighted with winter-ski lodge type love songs -and they steal the show. ‘Baby it’s Cold Outside’ has become one of the most popular duets of all time, and gems like ‘Won’t Cool Off’ & ‘The Things We Did Last Summer’ feature Dean at his boozy, mellow~swingin’ finest. One of the best albums of the Rat Pack era, period.”

3. Pretty Baby (1957)

Dean Martin – Pretty Baby (1957, Vinyl) - Discogs

“Dean is in fine voice, as usual, and these are all excellent famous very popular songs that feature wonderful backup singing groups to double your pleasure. These backup singing groups are top notch, as great as The Pied Pipers, The Meltones, or The Chordettes, for example. You’ll want to hear this CD over and over again. Oh, and included on this CD is Dean’s great his “Memories Are Made Of This”, a timeless masterpiece.”

2. Sleep Warm (1959)

Sleep Warm - Album by Dean Martin | Spotify

“Great album! Adult lullabyes. So nice to have them playing late in the evening, calming. When you cook for isntance, or do easy work in the house, late. Dean Martin fits better than ever for this. Frank conducts. Just a thing like that it is worth havig it.”

1. Dean Martin Sings (1953)

Dean Martin Sings - Album by Dean Martin | Spotify

“Dean Martin Sings has plenty for us to be happy about! This is a great album of songs by the one and only Dean Martin. Dean really doesn’t get the recognition he still deserves today; but hopefully with continued sales of CDs like this one that will change. The sound quality is excellent and the artwork is very nicely done.”
