The Best of the Dean Martin Variety Show

Dean Martin didn’t just break the mold for what a television variety host had to be, he refused to even bother thinking what anybody else did in the first place. He showed up, had some laughs with some friends, sang a song or two then said goodnight. And America loved him for it. They ate up the loosey-goosey nature of the show. So what if nobody can keep a straight face long enough to do a skit or even finish singing a song. That was the beauty of what Dean did, and this two-disc set is a great reminder of just how well he did it.
