Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

"If you wanna hear me sing serious, buy an album," Dean Martin says early in this 70-minute disc, underlining his point by deliberately mangling the last word's pronunciation. Issued to catch the wave of Steven Soderbergh's remake of the Pack's romp, Ocean's 11, Live at the Sands is the second official issue of a Martin/Frank Sinatra/Sammy Davis Jr. show. This September 1963 date, though, is nimbler and funnier than the previous year's set preserved on The Summit in Concert. Some of the same jokes are told, but this Vegas jaunt adds at least one new running gag (Dino's brief rendition of "It's My Party"), and Sammy also gets a few racially tinged zingers off in return for those of his partners. Oh, and lest we forget, there's good music. Martin actually plays it straight on two Guys and Dolls duets with Sinatra, who also turns in a half-dozen strong performances on his own. Plenty of mystique is present, but Sands captures the trio hard at work as well. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars "The 'Pack' In Their Playground" March 10, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Early September 1963...the marquee at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas reads:
DEAN MARTIN
Maybe Frank! Maybe Sammy!
On this new CD (recorded September 7th) there's no "maybes" about it....
Dean, Frank and Sammy give a performance that sums up early 60's cocktail lounge cool...
Dino's opening (the same opening he'd been doing for years) includes "Volare" "On An Evening In Roma" and "I Love Vegas (Paris)"..
Sinatra's set includes material from the "Sinatra-Basie" and "Concert Sinatra" albums plus a beautiful, tender rendition of "Call Me Irresponsible" (then, as Sinatra points out, only 6 months old); interestingly Sinatra's performances of "Only Have Eyes For You" and "Please Be Kind" on this tape far outswing the renditions on the Basie LP.
Sammy does "Lady Is A Tramp," and follows with an impressions-laden "All The Way".
The rest of the disc is classic Rat Pack clowning laced with tons of politically incorrect one liners (Imagine ANYONE saying to Frank and Dean in those days "Hey guys, you know some of that stuff is POLITCIALLY INCORRECT!")...
Dean: "Did you ever see a Jew-Jitsu?"
Dean (to Sammy) "You can sing with me..you can dance with me...you can go to the steam room with me....but just don't TOUCH me!"
Keep in mind this was just weeks after Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech.
It's also interesting to note that this performance occurs just 2 months before the Kennedy assassination and right in the midst of the lurid Sinatra headlines surrounding Sam Giancana and the Cal Neva lodge (weeks later Sinatra would have his Gaming license lifted)...among the celebrities introduced from the audience: "Mr. and Mrs. Tommy Sands!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my 5 favorite CDs June 4, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a slice of history. It is a modified version of the act that Dean, Frank and Sammy came up with to perform at the "Summit" in early 1960.
If you're just after straight music, there are plenty of other CDs to choose from.
As for me, I'll go with the live recordings because they are just that, *ALIVE*. Frank, Dean and Sammy are still as vibrant on the recording as they were in early September, 1963. If you want to laugh at crazy jokes, hear Sammy's incredible impressions or sing along with the timeless tunes, this is the album.
After listening to this CD, I'm hooked on LIVE Rat Pack recordings (I'm in the process of collecting all I can find). I just wish someone would come up with a video of what was happening on stage. I someone makes a DVD, I'll buy it!
If this sounds interesting and you like Sammy, I particularly recommend "Sammy Davis Jr. At the Cocoanut Grove" (recorded in 1962, Reprise). Its all Sammy (although I did mistake Sammy's impressions of Frank for Mr. Sinatra the first few times through.)
:-)
If you love a good time, this CD is guranteed to "leave you swinging..."

5.0 out of 5 stars THREE OF A KIND and a full house.... November 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
....and the payoff's huge for every listener. Another example of why every vault in every studio should be opened is this great "summit meeting" of three of the biggest and best entertainers in the world, found recently and released by the good people at Capitol Records. Here we have Frank, Dino and Sammy on familiar turf, Jack Entratter's Sands Hotel. All three are in spectacular form, but special mention must be given to Dean's being particularly in swingin' form and not quite so laid back. He gets a nice launching pad with a medley of "I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine" and "I Love Paris" (rendered as I Love VEGAS) with special referential lyrics written no doubt by Sammy Cahn for Ol' RED Eyes. Listen to the fun Dean has when he wanders through "June In January" with Antonio Morelli's orchestra (see kudos to them later) Anyone fortunate enough to have the great 2 CD set on the Jazz Hour label (The Villa Venice, Chicago IL concert from '62) will know most of the jokes and punch lines here, but there are a few new ones. The usual set up finds Dean opening for Frank, and Frank comes on and does his thing with the usual flair, with a very swingin' set, interspersed with ballads ("My Heart Stood Still" and the "7-month old song" of the time, Cahn and Van Heusen's "Call Me Irresponsible") Of course, "Luck Be A Lady' closes Frank's segment, and then it's Sammy's turn. To anyone else, it's a most inenviable task to follow someone like Sinatra, but Sammy always did, and did it with verve. He "steals" one of Sinatra's numbers in "The Lady Is A Tramp" and blasts his way through it. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars As close as we can get to the Pack's heyday September 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Many fans have Sinatra albums, or albums by Dean or Sammy. But oh how those albums convey the heart of the singer, the live performance conveys the soul. What a sight it must have been to see them perform live at the Sands in their heyday - commanding the room, sharing their songs and lives in an unique give and take. Luckily, for those of us who never made it to Vegas (or were not born when they Rat Pack ruled), there is this album. It brings you in and plunks you down in the audience. You feel Dean Martin's celebration of life and living it right in his medley of "drinking" songs as he wraps himself around you and brings you into his confidence. And Frank just arrives and commands the room for his set, yielding it to Dean and then Frank in give and take banter and shared songs. Sometimes the quality is not the greatest, and sometimes the references are dated (or unremembered), but they represent performers at the top of their careers. One thing that needs to be kept in mind is that the Rat Pack were far from PC, and some of the banter may seem shocking insensitive today, but was just part of their world then.
Still, if you are a fan of the Rat Packers, or of lounge music in general, this album belongs in your collection. It is just a great and unique album to enjoy.

Nothing funnier than hearing humour from another time which is now slightly politically incorrect. Cheesy, funny, great timeless tunes.
