Rare work by Dean Martin – a wealth of early singles, soundtrack tunes, and other tracks that have never been reissued before – all wrapped up in an incredibly lovely 8CD box set that comes with a LP-sized hardcover book filled with color images, notes on the music, and loads of fantastic photos! The set features early material that Dean recorded for the Diamond label starting in 1946, then moves into his Apollo recordings, and finally hits the bulk of the sides – which are for Capitol
Records, from 1949 to 1956. But not only that, 2 of the CDs in the set features material from Dean's films – including many with Jerry Lewis – numbers that have never been reissued from movies that include The Stooge, My Friend Irma, At War With The Army, The Caddy, Money From Home, You're Never Too Young, Scared Stiff, and lots more. The set is incredible – with far more songs than we could ever hope to mention here, and enough material to keep you digging into Dino's career for years and years and years!
