DEAN MARTIN's discography is really something to behold.Those two lps on one cd are a typical example.The first DEAN MARTIN HITS AGAIN it seems is a quickie;one gets the feeling that the wine was pouring a little to hard on those sessions.Try to figure out how many songs are molded on the first track.Three songs in a row have the same word on the title and this is not a concept lp.On the other hand,HOUSTON is a good mix of country and pop songs and I WILL, the last top ten hit of DEAN's career was indeed perfect for him.Trying to figure out the many ups and downs of DINO's recordings can actually take a few years out of your life.This guy DEAN MARTIN,perhaps this is the main reason we love him so much is quite an enigma in itself.We all agree nevertheless that he was an accomplished singer.

Well, Dean Martin is one of those singers that, with each new song heard, continues to amaze me. He sits in a list (a very short list) of singers that I would class as the best. The continued love for the music is maintained with this CD.

I personally find some of Dean's Reprise records to be the most well crafted (production wise) of all time, and Dean helps them to soar. He was such a terrific singer, and had the nicest voice. I, find when I discuss him i become very dumbed down, only the simple words like terrific and nice come to mind. I guess he takes my breath away.

Anyway, this CD digs up the original LP's - two of the best as well, and delivers golden tracks like Houston, I Will & You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You - all very big hits for Dean. It also has (of course) the "mere" album tracks - lesser known songs like Love, Love, Love; Little Lovely One and Everybody But Me. The thing with Dean is that sometimes less is more. These lesser known songs are some of my favorites.

So over all, this CD delivers the Dean Martin goods.

It doesn't get any better than this for Dean Martin fans. Houston is Dean at his coolest and Hits Again is for romance and candlelight.I bought both these albums as LP's way back in the sixties and they're still my two favorite Dino albums and now on CD the sound is even better ..

Got this for Texasman because the song Houston is one of his favorites and wasn't on any of the compilations of songs from the '50's and '60's we had.

It's strange to think we are probably the last generation to know about Dean Martin, to have seen him on TV and in movies all those decades back, and enjoyed his beautiful voice.

The quality of this recording is great and the selection of songs wide and interesting.

This CD carries several of my favourites, but then, pretty well all of Dean Martin's are favourites. His rendition of Wedding Bells particularly stands out, in that deep, easy listening voice. This is a CD that has seen the inside of my CD player for extended periods and will continue to do so. As well, it was shipped promptly and securely packaged. Recommended.

I remember "Houston" as far back as when my parents used to play it (at least 40 years!). I snuck the record out when I moved from home! But over the years it has suffered so much wear and tear I decided to get the CD.

so what more can I say? He was, still is, and will always be the essence of cool. I think he's become more popular through his CDs. So glad EVERYTHING he ever did is on CD or DVD. I still miss him.

I had both records, but played them so much, they skip now, so, I was glad to find this CD! All the songs are top notch, because well, let's face it Dean is top notch!

This is a truly wonderful excellant recording of some of Dean's great songs. It truly is worth owning and having this wonderful group of songs to listen to.

Great vocals from a charter member of the Rat Pack. Some may argue that the song selection is lame but he brings a nod and a wink to the songs delivery.
