Favorite Album Covers: Late At Night With Dean Martin

I thought I would post some of my favorite album covers from the Rat Packers. This is definitely one of my top favorites of all the great Dean Martin album covers out there. Don't you think the album covers of the past were so much cooler than the ones of today? I know I certainly think so. I don't have this particular album. I'd love to get a copy of it though. I just really dig this cover. It represents so much of what I love about Dino and that swingin' era. It definitely shows that Dino is the true King of Cool, Master of Hip, and Ruler of Randy. Do you like this cover? Cheers!

That cover really is to die for. In a strange kind of way, it reminded me of the Bewitched TV show.
You're right, Keith, the album covers of yesteryear seem so much better. Like you really were buying into an event (which of course you were).

My favorite Dino cover is HOUSTON...I love that LP and the cover is so incredibly cool...DREAM WITH DEAN is a great one also.

Hey pallie Keith, dude likes you have made the big Dinotime...found this Dinopost via goggle alerts...but, sorry to say, this particular Dinocover is not one of my Dinofavs....and of course this in not of of the original Dinoreleases...gives this Dinoholic the more classic Dinolooks of the original Capitol and Reprise Dinoreleases...

Steve: It reminds me of Bewitched as well. That's the first thing I thought when I first saw this cover. Glad you agree about the album covers of the past. Yeah, you were buying into an event. That music is timeless. It's not like the fad music of today.

Jeremy: Those are both great covers. Plus I'm a big fan of the song "Houston." Dino had a lot of really great covers, as did many others of that era.

DMP: That's cool that you saw this on Google Alerts. I know that my video post about Sammy was on the one about him. No prob that this is not one of your favorite ones. It reminds me of the cocktail culture that I'm such a fan of.

That is so cool! I'd love to be the girl on that cover. I could only imagine being that lucky. What girl wouldn't want to spend time late at night with Dino!

NSF: Glad you enjoy this cover. Me too. It really represents so well what Dino's all about.
