Dean Martin - Forever Cool

Today a new album with Dean Martin called "Forever Cool" has been released. You may wonder how that's possible since Dean Martin died in 1995 but what they have done is to take old tracks with Dean Martin's song and pair them with new arrangements and new duet singers like Robbie Williams, Martina McBride, Joss Stone, Shelby Lynne, Kevin Spacey and bands like Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

The album features classic Dean Martin songs like "Ain't That A Kick In The Head", "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone" and "Baby It's Cold Outside".

See a trailer for the "Dean Martin: Forever Cool" album.

Have you listened to the album "Forever Cool" with Dean Martin? What do you think? Tell me.

Thanks for letting me know about the Dean Martin CD. I think they did the same thing with Frank Sinatra and his duets album. It tends to reach a younger audience and then create more sales on the older stuff that he recorded solo. Brings his talents and comedy to a whole new generation! Ed - the Music Man
