On This Day In Dino-history: October 13, 1958

Hey pallies, likes thanks to our great pallie Mark R. over at "popculturefanboy" we knows that today is 'nother great day of Dino-remembrance. It was on this very Dino-day, October 13 in the year of our Dino 1958 that 4 of the great songs that woulda be released on our Dino's won-der-ful al-b-um, "Sleep Warm," were recorded at "The Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, California between 10:00pm and 1:00am."

Those songs include, "Dream", "Dream a Little Dream Of Me", "Good Night Sweetheart", and "Cuddle Up A Little Closer." And to tops it off pallies, our Dino's pallie Mr. Frank Sinatra was at the baton conductin' the how cool is that!?!?!?!

So on this 13th day of October, we pause a moment to remember and honor 'nother great accomplishment in the life and times of our most beloved Dino. Thanks to Mr. Mark R. for remindin' all us Dino-philes of this memorable day in our great man's great life. To view this at Mark R.'s pad, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.

This particular album has a lot of smooth tracks. Dream With Dean is smooth, too, but arrangements on that particular album are quite minimalist whereas Sleep Warm has lusher arrangements.

Hey pallie, likes Miss AOW, no one is as smooth or as lush as our most beloved Dino...and very cool that Mr. Sinatra helped create "Sleep Warm." Keeps lovin' our Dino!
