Dream With Dean – The Intimate Dean Martin is back bigger and better than ever! We’ve gone the deluxe Analogue Productions route – remastered from the original analog tape by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, cut at 45 RPM, plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. Then packaged in deluxe tip-on gatefold jackets from Stoughton Printing. A great title, a brilliant reissue. Exceptional!
This album with the original Martin recording was released after the hit single version and on the same day as the Everybody Loves Somebody LP, but how many times does the audience get a different studio reading of a seminal hit record? Not only that, but the version that preceded the hit. The backing is so sparse it is almost a cappella, with Kessel’s guitar noodlings and Ken Lane’s piano. The bass is mostly invisible, coming in only when needed. It’s a slow and sultry version that caps off side one.
