Dream With Dean – DEAN MARTIN****

I’m Confessin'/Fools Rush In/I’ll Buy That Dream/If You Were The Only Girl In The World/Blue Moon/Everybody Loves Somebody/I Don’t Know Why/Gimme A Little Kiss/Hands Across The Table/Smile/My Melancholy Baby/ Baby Won’t You Please Come Home

Dream With Dean was released concurrently with Everybody Loves Somebody. Although it gained more critical plaudits, it was less successful commercially. Includes a different version of the hit single Everybody Loves Somebody. (US:15)

"An intimate, late-night affair recorded with a small combo and spare arrangements."

"Martin decided to cut a concept album of slow ballads, sung as slow as they could be sung, with an intimate backing of just four pieces. The resulting sound is, of course, sparse and mellow, but it actually works very well behind Martin's voice, which sounds deep and soothing, a little bit as though he were singing directly into the listener's ear, trying his best to contain the emotions expressed in the lyrics."

"Dream with Dean might be the crooner's best album. Backed by a small tasteful quartet this is the polar opposite of the music that is normally associated with Dino. The album is all the better for that difference as Martin's truly beautiful voice is accentuated in all its subtle glory. The result is a stunningly intimate recording."

"The arrangements though tasteful vary little from song to song and listeners are left begging for a little drama. Still hearing Martin in this context is well worth the effort and the album is in general a success. While Martin had a reputation for being indifferent to just about everything, this is a real serious attempt at some kind of art."

"Dream With Dean is what many consider a 'Dino unplugged' session, if you will, away from all the glitz and glamour and hype and swing, just Dino, the boys in the small group, and you. Clearly an after hours mood album that even Frank Sinatra must have been thrilled to hear."

"Dream With Dean is a quiet and very relaxed meander through a dozen standards, simply accompanied by four musicians. Dean is completely relaxed, and there is no doubt this minimal backing provides the perfect setting for his understated style which represents the ideal package for late night listening."

Nothing like Dream with Dean, candlelight, and a glass of good brandy.
