''Our friendship has traveled down many roads over the years and there will always be         a special place in my heart and soul for Dean.   ''He has been like the air I breathe - always there,         always close by.''

Music History: February 3rd:

1960 Frank Sinatra launches the first fully artist-owned label, Reprise Records (pronounced "repreeze"), so he can own his own masters. Some of his cohorts, including Dean Martin and Rosemary Clooney, join the label, which is sold to Warner Brothers in 1963, where it becomes home to a number of famous acts, including Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell and Green Day.

A very important milestone in Dean Martin history and music as a whole. As usual DMP you have me heading to Wikipedia to check out the history of Reprise records and there history, and it is a very rich one indeed. A treasure trove of artists and music and it is still in existence today. One thing that I love is history, my favorite of subjects in school and today too. Thank you DMP once again for a great history lesson.

Have a wonderful week.
