‘ promotion for the "new" aptly-titled Dean Martin CD Forever Cool
is so good I ran out to get a copy Tuesday when it was released. I wish I liked it more.
Much of it has a strange karaoke feel to it. The duet partners picked, including actor Kevin Spacey, seem a little odd to me. So does some of the "conversation" between the new singing partners and Dean. After all, Dean’s dead! The best cuts are of Dean singing solo, anyway.
I used to like this sort of thing, like the Natalie/Nat King Cole version of "Unforgettable" released years ago. Even some of the Sinatra Duets and Duets II weren’t too bad. But Forever Cool isn’t it.
Save your money. Spend it on a real Dean Martin CD. Start with The Essential Dean Martin.
