Favorite Album Covers: Dean Martin - A Winter Romance

dinoxmas

I really love the cover for A Winter Romance by Dean Martin. It's a beautiful picture of Dino and his girl (she looks so happy being with him) outside of the ski lodge on their winter holiday. We can see that the cad Dino is checking out another girl. She's got quite the smile on her face. I bet Dino's going to get double the action on this ski trip. Besides just having a nice cover, this album is also quite good. While the album does have Christmas songs on it, some of the songs are more winter related. I have this album in my collection. I love listening to it at this time of year.

P.S. Check out my latest post at Celluloid Slammer. I posted a video of Elvis Presley singing Blue Christmas. That is one of my all-time favorite Christmas tunes. I hope you'll check it out and leave me some comments there. Thanks.

when you say album do you mean vinyl? Or CD? this would would be amazing to hear on vinyl... nicks and scratches and all.

Hey Bill. When I say album, it could be either vinyl or CD. I've got this on CD. I bet it would be great on vinyl though. It's some cool music for wintertime.

Hey pallie Keith, that Dinocover is just so Dinoish...and likes as Dinousual our Dino was way before his times...likes this Dinoalbum was released likes in 1958 or 1959...very very Dinorevolutionary.....

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks for the comments. Glad you love this cover so much. It's definitely one of my favorites. It's great music for wintertime. Plus the cover so represents what is so cool, hip & randy about Dino. Cheers!

Hello Keith. I have this CD. I love it. It's wonderful music for the winter season. I wish I was either of these girls on the cover. :-)

Hey Phoebe. Glad you liked it. It is one cool album. The cover is so awesome. It's definitely one of my top favorites of Dino albums. I'd love to be in Dino's shoes.

I'd love to throw all my CDs on the bonfire and go back to strictly vinyl - what a shame to have a cover like this shrunk to the size of a beer coaster!

I'll never actually toss my CDs, I know. But when I see nice album art like this, it makes me feel better to threaten to.

Hey Gil. Thanks for the comments. I understand what you mean. I prefer vinyl. Art like this should be seen in a bigger form that what little we can see in a CD case. I also love the sound of vinyl. It really gives some extra magic to this cool music. Cheers!
