Sam Cooke is the greatest American vocalist, which means that Sinatra lands somewhere around fourth or fifth in the top five. So where’s that leave Dean Martin? Who knows? Who cares? The man’s place in American popular culture is forever secure. Rat Pack. Handsome. Martin and Lewis. Golf. TV. The whole 18 holes. So, the double disc Dino: The Essential Dean Martin and its more compact companion, Classic Dino: The Best of Dean Martin, are probably not going to offer you anything you aren’t expecting. Martin was a charming guy with a good voice who recorded some memorable songs, and attempts at deeper analysis seem almost heretical for a man who made his name in an era where the illusion of glamour, immortality, and star power (read: the superficiality of celebrity) reigned supreme. The stuff the casual listener—the dame or dude who, like me, wants to have some Dino on hand for holidays and dinner parties—really wants what occupies the single disc Classic Dino set. They’re all there—“That’s Amore”, “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head”, “Volare (Nel Blu Di Pinto Di Blue)”, and “You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You”—and each reveals Martin’s uncanny ability to lend warmth to a simple melody and make us unashamed to embrace lyrics that ask us to believe in the impossible and smile all the while.
