Album Remarks & Appraisals:
2010 collection from the classic crooner containing his most essential romantic recordings. Warm your heart with these lovably delicious tunes! 16 tracks including 'I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face', 'Everybody Loves Somebody' and 'That's Amore'.
Released in time for Valentine's Day 2010, Essential Love Songs rounds up 16 romantic highlights from Dean Martin's classic Capitol recordings. This splits the difference between Martin hits ("Everybody Loves Somebody," "That's Amoré," "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You") and standards ("I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face," "Dream a Little Dream of Me"), adding some good lesser-known selections from somewhat deeper in his catalog, all adding up to nice sampler of Dino at his most romantic. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
