AllMusic Review by

Always calm to the point of serenity, with a highball in one hand and a cigarette in the other, Dean Martin turned a kind of detached bemusement into a solid career as a pop crooner, entertainer, and straight man, and that smooth, easy singing voice made it all possible. This 20-track set is a bit hit-or-miss at times, but it does include classic performances of "Volare," "That's Amore," and "Ain't That a Kick in the Head" by Martin, who never left a song without making it easily his own somehow.
