Who Better To Spend Christmas With Than The King of Cool?

Factfile - Dean Martin
  • The Dean Martin Christmas Album (1966) sold almost a million copies in it's first month and went to #1 on the Billboard Christmas chart.
  • Martin's son tells us that The Dean Martin Christmas Album was the only one of his father's recordings played in the Martin family home.
  • Dino's 1959 recording of Baby, It's Cold Outside is ranked the 19th best selling holiday single in the digital era (after 2003).
  • Dean Martin died on Christmas Day, 1995.

Dean Martin was as successful on vinyl as he was on celluloid to the extent that the king of cool is easily one of the most recognisable voices we hear each Christmas. Martin was as bold as brass on record as he was in life (he was a quintessential part of the Rat Pack remember) which made for festive recordings that had an unmistakable glint in their eye. His playfulness was readily apparent on the first of his two Christmas albums 'A Winter Romance' which came out in 1959. Although not strictly a Christmas record (in that it had some non-Christmas material like 'Canadian Sunset') 'A Winter Romance' still contained plenty of holiday favourites like Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!, 'Winter Wonderland' and 'Baby, It's Cold Outside'. His version of 'White Christmas' was another winner, which when put in the context of his 1953 single 'If I Could Sing Like Bing' must have pleased him greatly. Traditionalists will adore the rich orchestral parts by conductor Gus Levene which adds the icing to Martin's swaggering vocals. 'A Winter Romance' also contained Martin's first Christmas song, the 1953 single 'The Christmas Blues' which contained a giant sled full of faux sadness.

Martin's second Christmas album, 'The Dean Martin Christmas Album', originally came out in 1966 but it was a constant on the Christmas charts throughout the 1960's and 1970's. Although it included several tracks that had been on 'A Winter Romance' it felt like a proper Christmas album this time and sold close to 1 million copies on the first month it was released. With Martin offering joyous swinging versions of the likes of 'White Christmas', 'Silver Bells', I'll Be Home For Christmas' and 'Marshmallow World' it was never going to be anything other than a success. The only unusual on the album is the undeniably smart but a tad out of place 'The Things We Did Last Summer'. It is well documented that the only album that was ever played in the Martin family household was 'My Christmas Album'.

All told Dean Martin didn't record a particularly bulging set of Christmas songs but what they lacked in quantity they more than made up for in quality. Dean Martin Christmas songs will undeniably be appearing on the radio for as long as Christmas is celebrated and each new year brings forth new compilations containing his better known tracks. For reasons unknown or maybe just to add a contemporary edge, some new Dino Christmas compilations have replaced the chorus of female backing singers found on the original of 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' with country singer Martina McBride. Although the update is pleasing it was never going to upstage the cheeky original. And Dean Martin was a true original, and one that died on Christmas Day, 1995.

Oh the weather outside
is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
