Christmas Music: Dean Martin

One of my favorite albums not just at Christmas, but year 'round, is Dean Martin's A WINTER ROMANCE (linked above). Recorded for Capitol, Dean is in absolutely prime voice on a variety of winter-related tunes such as "June in January," "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" and the lovely title tune. Five or six of the album's songs are traditionally associated with Christmas, including "White Chrismas" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."

A more complete collection of Dean's Christmas recordings can be found on MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT or the more recent release CHRISTMAS WITH DINO. MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT is one of the Christmas CD's most frequently requested by our children.

Dean can also be heard on the fun compilation CHRISTMAS WITH THE RAT PACK.
