"The thing with Dean is that sometimes less is more."

Hey pallies, likes August 3-6 of this year we were deeply delighted to share a quartet of excellent efforts accentin' some of our Dino's rave record al-b-ums from the Brit blog tagged  "Vox Pop Music Album Guides - A blog to promote the definitive , most comprehensive, guide to popular music" where a unnamed blogger who tags himself "Mr Right Wing" powerfully pontificates on all thin's vinyl.

Likes today we are pleased as punch to return for a fifth  helpin' of Dino-reviews, this time 'round fabulously focusin' on our Dino's swingin' al-b-um,"DEAN MARTIN HITS AGAIN."  Before we share a few thoughts on Mr. Right Wing's most current Dino-contribution, let's share with all youse Dino-holic's where you can find our past  posts from Mr. Wing.  They are located  HERE,  and HERE and   HERE and  HERE!

Each post that Mr. Right Wing shares includes wise words from a number of folks who have enjoyed the particular Dino-disc.  This time 'round we are once 'gain in absolute awe of the veritable variety of touchin' thoughts on "DEAN MARTIN HITS AGAIN," but, likes the one that we greatly grooves on the mostest is the one that we partially included as the tag of this here Dino-post..."The thing with Dean is that sometimes less is more. These lesser known songs are some of my favourites. So over all, this LP delivers the Dean Martin goods."

Likes, we coulda shares more, but, then there wouldn't anythin' for all youse Dino-philes to digs, so just read on pallies for mucho Dino-readin' pleasure.  Once 'gain we salute Mr. Ring Wing for liftin' up 'nother remarkable recordin' from our most most beloved Dino and we sez, Mr. Wing if you keeps scribin' more Dino-devotion, we promise to keeps sharin' it with all the pallies gathered 'round the ilovedinomartin waterin' hole.  To checks this out in it's original source, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram.

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

Hits Again – DEAN MARTIN***

You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You/I’ll Hold You In My Heart/Have A Heart/My Heart Is An Open Book/ You’ll Always Be The One I Love/Send Me The Pillow You Dream On/In The Chapel In The Moonlight/Send Me Some Lovin’/Wedding Bells/I’ll Be Seeing You

Dino continued his mid sixties winning streak with Dean Martin Hits Again, although the title is rather a misnomer as the album contained no major hit single. (US:13)

"Producer Jimmy Bowen had conceived the idea of doing a 1950s style rock & roll arrangement of Everybody Loves Somebody in 1964 and thus fostered Martin's musical comeback. On Hits Again in early 1965, he and arranger Ernie Freeman cloned that sound over and over, from the 4/4 beat and the piano triplets to the swooping strings and the vocal chorus. The ever-versatile Martin seemed to be at home no matter what the backing."

"Dean Martin Hits Again seems to be a quickie. One gets the feeling that the wine was pouring a little to hard on these sessions. Try to figure out how many songs are moulded on the first track. Three songs in a row have the same word in the title and this is not a concept LP."

"It doesn't get any better than this for Dean Martin fans. Hits Again is for romance and candlelight."

"This is a wonderful, excellent recording of some of Dean's great songs. It truly is worth owning and having this marvellous group of songs to listen to."

"Well, Dean Martin is one of those singers that, with each new song heard, continues to amaze me. He sits in a very short list of singers that I would class as the best. The continued love for the music is maintained with this album."

"I personally find some of Dean's Reprise records to be the most well crafted (production wise) of all time, and Dean helps them to soar. He was such a terrific singer, and had the nicest voice."

"The thing with Dean is that sometimes less is more. These lesser known songs are some of my favourites. So over all, this LP delivers the Dean Martin goods."
