Ed's Epistle......Ramblin's and Ruminations of a Disciple of Dino
"On This Day In Dino History: November 20, 1952"
Fewer places I can conjure up to be on a warm Hollywood night in November 1952, than that tall sleek stack of 45’s off Hollywood and Vine. To witness Dino do to song what wine does the head.
At this point in his career, with already 100 songs recorded in 29 recording sessions, Dino has this business down pat.
Wear the hat, or hang the hat, his biggest decision of the night I’m sure. The man is about to put voice to tape for decades of future generations to enjoy, and he’s tossin' cigarettes into his mouth like a magician. Great ones make exceptional appear routine.
Friday night, November 20th, 1952, Dino cozies up to the silver pill in the Capital Studios for two recording sessions. Who says our Dino wasn't a devoted artist? The "Dean Martin Sings" LP sessions, released the following year on January 12, 1953.
