Dean Martin - Gentle On My Mind

1207-denise

I'm not sure what kind of record this chick is listening to. I still thought it was a cool pic to post. She's a pretty girl, plus I dig that stereo and chair she's got. I could imagine her relaxing and listening to some Dino tunes like
Gentle On My Mind. I hope you enjoy this video clip of Dino performing this song on his show. Plus there's some banter from Dino at the end. Cheers!

Something very 'A Clockwork Orange' about that picture--I dig it.

It's a Dual HiFi machine from 1970-72.
Great pic from Dual... Uncle Sid has it too ;-)

Keith said...

Hey Rev. Glad you like that pic too. I thought it was very cool.

Keith said...

Hey Sid. Thanks for letting me know what it was. That's cool that you've got that pic too. Somebody sent it to me on myspace, but I couldn't remember who it was.

Great pic, and great version of the song. The John Hartford original will forever be my definitive version, but Dean swings the number up and makes me ask, Glenn who?

Planet Mondo said...

Love that hi-fi and Dino smoking a gasper on set - you wouldn't get that now..Elvis and Frank both do great versions too

Verification word was 'purists' - that's about right...

Hey T.L. Thanks for the comments. I had been planning on posting that pic on one of my two blogs. I just got the inspiration to post it on this one. I grew up hearing Dino's version of this song quite often. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks for the comments. Glad you liked the pic and video. They just don't make them like they once did. There have been some other good versions of this song. Love the word verification. That was cool.

Keith said...

Thanks FM-FP. I like it too.

I have so many pleasant memories of those concole stereos, which were really pieces of furniture! Same with TVs of the time. My grandparents would have their blonde-wood console stereo tuned in to the local "Beautiful Music" station and their house was so peaceful and calming with the sounds of Percy Faith, Ray Conniff, and Henry Mancini playing...sun streaming into 1970s room of late afternoon nostalgia...ah, sounds like something out of Kerouac! ;)

Good stuff, Keith, as always.

Keith said...

Hey C.K. Thanks for those great comments. Man, I can almost imagine it in my head. I'm trying to remember what my grandparents had. They had something like this, but I know it wasn't the same thing. I always loved it. You knew that when you came into their house they were going to have some music on. That's where I discovered the sounds of Dino, etc.

I'd love to be the girl in that photo. She does have one cool hi-fi and chair. I'd be listening to Rat Pack records all the time on that thing.

joe said...

Now that is a cool chair.

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. I know what you mean. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Take care. Cheers!

Hey Proudly. Thanks for the comments. I really do love the pics that you post of you and Mr. Freddy. You two wear such stylish outfits. Glad you liked this pic. I thought it was really cool. I would love to have a chair and stereo like that. Cheers!

Couture Carrie said...

My parents had a crazy stereo like that in the 70s! I adore that photo, Keith!

Fast Eddie's Retro Rags said...

Love the "chick pic", but she looks like too much of a square to listen to the likes of a Dean Martin record. She's probably listening to something like Herman's Hermits and fantasizing about Davy Jones. (No offense to HH fans, but they make my ears sad.)

Keith said...

Hey Fast Eddie. Thanks for the comments. They were pretty funny. There's no telling what that chick was listening to. Now I've got the Monkees in my head. I hate to say that I actually like some of their tunes.

This photo is so cool!

Thanks E.K.
