  • Now on 45 RPM LP, mastered at Sterling Sound by Ryan Smith from the analog tapes

"Dean's voice here caresses the microphone like few other male singers' ever have, and the quartet stays politely in the background. This collection of popular tunes is perfect for the 45 RPM treatment. ... Martin had a gorgeous voice and it's beautifully recorded and reproduced here." — Recording = 10/10; Music = 6/10 - Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi +, Issue 126

"Here Dean is accompanied by a quartet of West Coast performing and studio veterans: Barney Kessel (guitar), Red Mitchell (bass), his long time accompanist Ken Lane (piano) and Irv Cottler (drums). Martin sounds as if he's within inches of the microphone with the backing players mixed to keep the vocals way upfront. On the opener that's not a 'tic', it's Martin's lips smacking. That's a gutsy move for any vocalist but Martin adds to the daring by laying almost completely off the reverb send. He's in your room. The recording is simply astonishing. It's a show-stopper at every audio show ... The Analogue Productions first class gatefold packaging includes a laminated 'Tip-On' jacket and two wonderful studio shots, beautifully reproduced in black and white showing a relaxed and happy Dean Martin in what looks like Gold Star Studios. ... If you're going to have one Dean Martin record, this one would be it." — Music = 9/11; Sound = 11/11 — Michael Fremer, Read the whole review here.

"The packaging of Dream with Dean is absolutely flawless. ... The LPs were truely hefty, tipping the LP balance beam at a highly commendable 207 grams for LP A, and 210 grams for LP B. Both were exceptionally flat, and without scuffs or skid marks due to sloppy handling. ... Solid as a rock, clean, flat and unmarked. LPs like this really set the standard ... I've never seen better than this. ... If you haven't heard the new Analogue Productions' reissue of Dean Martin's Dream With Dean on Analogue Productions / Quality Record Pressings 45 RPM LP, then you are missing one of the very finest examples of 'palpability' that I've ever heard. A reference classic." — Dr. David W. Robinson, Editor-in-Chief, Positive Feedback Online, March/April 2015. Read the entire review here.

Dream With Dean - The Intimate Dean Martin is back bigger and better than ever! We've gone the deluxe Analogue Productions route - remastered from the original analog tape by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, cut at 45 RPM, plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. Then packaged in deluxe tip-on gatefold jackets from Stoughton Printing. A great title, a brilliant reissue. Exceptional!
