Dean Martin "Cool Then, Cool Now" 2-CD/Book

Biography

It’s been nearly ten years since Dean Martin departed this earth, but the man’s stature as an artist and icon continues to grow. His importance to generations of music fans (not to mention aficionados of masculine cool) now far outstrips his former reputation as the tippler of the Rat Pack¹s tuxedoed triumvirate or Jerry Lewis’ crooning straight man. He was, simply ... Read more in Amazon's Dean Martin Store

"DEAN MARTIN cool then, cool now" is a fun photo essay of how cool Dean Martin's life was during the best of times. This is a combo photo album and dual CD musical tribute ... let's hit on the book first.

The Book...

It's important to note that "cool then, cool now" is not a biography or expose; there are several books that fit that bill (try Shawn Levy's Rat Pack Confidential), but this Dean Martin Family Trust effort is essentially a photo album. With the exception of a forward from Kevin Spacey and brief intros at the beginning of each major section, the only words in the book are captions under the photos. That said, the writing that does appear is nicely done -- just enough to lend some context, humor and poignancy to the great pictures.

Speaking of the pics, the quality of the photography and the book overall is excellent. The photos are beautiful -- looking and feeling like actual photographs -- you'll find yourself trying not to touch them when turning the pages!

The book is laid out in life-sections following a one page introduction from Kevin Spacey. Spacey's forward is a well written tribute to Dean, the actor, performer... and of course the king of cool. Spacey does a nice job of showing how Dean -- a generation away -- made such a difference in Kevin's approach to acting and performing. It's a surprisingly personal and sentimental slice of Spacey and a great leadoff for the book.

The Entertainer...

The first section is briefly introduced by Robbie Williams, who also sings a remastered Please Don't Talk About Me duet with Dean on the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Photo Book June 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm really excited about this book. It's full of beautiful photos of Dino with his children, friends, on movie sets etc. It really gives you a sense of what an incredibly life Dean lived. It includes 2 CDs, too. Nothing more relaxing than Dino on the stereo and flipping through the pages. Miss you Dino!

Who does not love Dean Martin? His voice can always get to me, and who can not enjoy his humor. Handsome and Italian. Who could ask for anything more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Keepsake for Any Dean Martin Fan! October 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dean Martin was, and still is, one of the greatest entertainers to ever walk the face of the earth. This book shows candid photos from his family life, which paint a much different picture than the swinging nightlife he took part in. I haven't listened to the CD's yet, but I know that they will be fabulous.
