Icon, Vol. 2 Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

A companion volume to the 2012 Icon, Icon, Vol. 2 contains some of Dean Martin's very biggest hits, songs so, well, iconic that it's a surprise to realize they didn't make the initial cut. These are "Ain't That a Kick in the Head," "That's Amore," "Memories Are Made of This," "Volare," "Return to Me," and "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You," and they form the backbone of this excellent 11-track budget-line sampler that, when combined with the 2012 set, makes for a good two-disc overview of Martin's most popular material.
