FIRST EVER CAREER-DEFINING BOX SET FOR THE LEGENDARY DEAN MARTIN: LAVISH FOUR-DISC COLLECTION INCLUDES RARE/UNRELEASED AUDIO AND RARE FOOTAGE FROM HIS PERFORMANCE IN LONDON, PLUS ALL HIS SIGNATURE HITS -- AVAILABLE JUNE 12
There is only one man who Playboy called "the coolest man who ever lived" and who Elvis Presley worshipped and admired. Simply put, that man is Rat Pack legend Dean Martin. He is one of the greatest recording artists of all time with a career spanning almost 50 years. UMe releases DEAN MARTIN - COLLECTED COOL, the first and only career-defining, four-disc box set that combines his biggest hits and signature tunes from both his Capitol Records and Reprise years. Live rarities and spoken word intros make their CD debut including, in its entirety, the rare and unreleased audio recording of his 1962 Lake Tahoe show capturing Martin's unique vocal styling that cemented his reputation as one of the most revered and emulated artists of all time. COLLECTED COOL also offers a DVD of a live performance filmed at the London Apollo Victoria Theatre in 1983. This show only aired on cable in 1983 for a brief time and has never been aired or available since then.
