Dean Martin: Lay Some Happiness On Me (6-CD & 1-DVD mit 112-seitigem gebundenen Buch)

6-CD/1-DVD box (LP-size) with 112-page hardcover book. CD 168 tracks, playing time approx. 452 mns. DVD 25 tracks.

DVD = NTSC 1966-1985

By 1966, when this retrospective begins, Dean Martin was once again one of the biggest stars in American entertainment...perhaps the biggest! His records were selling more than ever; his top-rated television show was renewed year-after-year; his appearances in Las Vegas were sell-outs; and he was the star of the cult Matt Helm movies.

This 6-CD (plus DVD) collection includes all of Dean Martin's classic Reprise albums from 1966 to 1974 together with his last recordings from 1983 and 1985. Here are all of his later hits, including
Somewhere There's A Someone, Come Running Back, Lay Some Happiness On Me, In The Chapel In The Moonlight,
and Little Old Wine Drinker Me. This set also includes all the LPs, 'Somewhere There's A Someone', 'Songs From The Silencers', 'The Dean Martin Christmas Album', 'The Dean Martin TV Show', 'Happiness Is Dean Martin', 'Welcome To My World', 'Gentle On My Mind', 'I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am', 'My Woman My Woman My Wife', 'For The Good Times', 'Sitting On Top Of The World', 'You're The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me', and the final Reprise album, 'Once In A While.' When
Dean Martin recorded again it was for Warner Bros. Nashville, and the resulting album included a duet with Conway Twitty on My First Country Song, which became a Top 40 country hit, and a duet with Merle Haggard on Everybody's Had The Blues. In 1985, Dean Martin made his final recording, L.A. Is My Home, which became the closing theme to Joe Pesci's television show, 'Half Nelson.'

The set concludes with the soundtrack versions A Wonderful Time and I'm Not The Marrying Kind, plus two soundtrack versions of Five Card Stud. There are some radio spots and an exclusive tape of songwriter Baker Knight (The Wonder Of You, Lonesome Town, etc.) demo'ing some songs for Dean Martin that Dean Martin eventually didn't record. In addition, there's a bonus DVD of movie trailers.

When Dean Martin died on Christmas Day 1995, an era died with him. He was the last of the great lounge performers. His easygoing insouciance and roguish charm are now back in fashion. This set, and its three companion volumes, comprise absolutely everything that Dean Martin recorded. An incredible legacy from the most incredible entertainer.

This set also includes a hardcover book with many previously unseen photographs, a complete discography, a biography of Dean Martin during this period by Ryan Null, and an appreciation by Neil T. Daniels.

Artist description "Martin, Dean"

Dean Martin
That life had its origin when Dean Martin's father was born in the Abruzzi region of Italy in 1894 and emigrated to the U.S. in 1913. He Americanized his first name ‘Gaetano’ becoming barber ‘Guy’ Crocetti who would marry Angela Barra the following year on October 25, 1914. Dean's mom was born in Fernwood, Ohio in 1897 and met Guy while she was studying to be a nun! Dean is quoted in a 1967 ‘Look’ article as admitting, "She was in a convent. She met my father, and fell in love at first sight. She left the convent, and she married him two weeks later." The Crocettis’ first child, Bill, was born on June 24, 1916. His brother entered the world as Dino Paul Crocetti less than a year later on June 7, 1917. The family lived at 319 South Sixth Street, Steubensville, and Dean was baptized at St. Anthony of Padua's Church on September 16th of that year. He didn't speak any English until the age of five.

Dean's childhood was filled with fond memories as he remembered during an interview with the ‘Saturday Evening Post’ in April 1961. "We Crocettis had everything we wanted. I had a bicycle. We had a car and good food. As a cook, my mother was the greatest. Her specialties were spaghetti and meat balls, veal and peppers or sausage and peppers."

Dean attended Grant Junior High and Wells High schools and was a Boy Scout in Steubenville's troop ten. He quit school in the tenth grade because, as he noted, "I thought I was smarter than the teachers."  A succession of jobs followed, including a stint when he boxed in the welterweight division as  ‘Kid Crochet’.  This left him with a permanently split lip, crooked hands and a broken nose.

While in his teens, Dean worked in Ohio's steel mills bundling hot coils. "We had big platforms half a block long; hot coils of steel wire came down on them," he recalled in 1961. "They cooled as they came because there was water splashing on them. At a certain point a buddy of mine and I would bang the end of a coil with a hammer, I'd pull a lever and the coil went into a boxcar." When he narrowly avoided being hit by a falling bundle, Dean decided to try his hand at another profession.

In the 1930s, Steubenville was known as ‘Little Chicago’ due in large part to its gambling houses. During the Depression, Dean delivered bootleg whiskey throughout Ohio and across the river in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. He also worked as a clerk at the Rex Cigar Store on Steubenville's Market Street, which was a front for one of the town's gambling centers. He dealt poker and blackjack in the back room and expertly handled the stick as a croupier, raking money off the gambling tables. Dean elaborated, "I learned to roll the wheel, how to shoot craps, how to deal blackjack... my salary for working the chips and the dice tables was eight bucks a day. Tips brought that up to fifteen or twenty dollars. Also, I did a little knocking down. During the course of a day I could steal maybe as much as five silver dollars."

But Martin wasn't just a good croupier, he was also good looking. He admitted to ‘Look’ magazine in 1952, "I was the kind of guy who'd walk down the street and people would turn around and look after me." And from a very early age, he discovered another talent: singing.

In the September 18, 1965 issue of ‘TV Guide’, Dean's first cousin Mary related the following: "Dino somehow... acquired a record player, an old one, the kind that you had to wind up after each record. He collected records of singers; I can't remember all of them, but I do know that his favorites were Bing Crosby and Russ Columbo. He'd play their records over and over, and sing with them."

Throughout the years, Dean always acknowledged his debt to Crosby. In 1961 he told journalist Pete Martin, "I copied Bing Crosby 100%. Frank Sinatra and Perry Como did too." Six years later, he confided to Oriana Fallaci, a reporter for ‘Look’, "When a Bing Crosby movie came to Steubenville, I would stay there all day and watch. And that's how I learned to sing, cause it's true I don't read a note. He was the teacher for all of us." And in the September 1969 issue of ‘Billboard’ he remarked, "We all sound a little bit like him because he didn't strain when he was singing. He just let it flow naturally."
