Eee-O-11: The Best of the Rat Pack

( 2 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
EEE-O 11 gathers 18 definitive tracks from the three main Rat Packers, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr., on one killer collection. Heard separately and in three duets, EEE-O 11 is a perfect starter set for anyone new to the stunning vocal gifts of these legendary talents. Dean Martin uses his smooth baritone to superb effect on "Ain't That a Kick in the Head," "When You're Smiling," "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You," and his signature hit, "Volare." Sammy Davis works his powerful pipes on "Too Close for Comfort," "A Lot of Livin' to Do," and the swinging title tune, as well as "Sam's Song," a comic coupling with a very game Martin. Sinatra affirms his unchallenged vocal preeminence on the ...

Sinatra affirms his unchallenged vocal preeminence on the classics "Witchcraft," "I'm Gonna Live Till I Die," "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Chicago," and "Me and My Shadow," on which the Chairman and Davis delightfully try to top each other. EEE-O 11 happily makes a golden era of showbiz readily accessible and is one of the year's quality reissues.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
This is one of two albums released by Capitol Records in anticipation of the December 2001 release of the remake of Ocean's Eleven, the 1960 Las Vegas caper film that utilized the talents of Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack of entertainers. The original film had no formal soundtrack album, but there was music in the picture and, of course, Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr. along with comedian Joey Bishop and actor Peter Lawford performed on-stage during the making of the movie. This compilation of studio recordings made in the 1950s and '60s draws not only from the Capitol archives but also from Reprise, for which all three singers began to record starting in the early '60s. It presents versions of the songs heard in the film Sinatra's "I'm Gonna Live Till I Die," Martin's "Ain't That a Kick in the Head," and Davis' "Eee-O Eleven" plus a couple of duets that appeared originally on a 1962 Reprise single "Me and My Shadow" by Sinatra and Davis and "Sam's Song" by Martin and Davis, both with special lyrics probably penned by Sammy Cahn and a bunch of other songs that the three were known to perform during their joint shows, or that are appropriate to the jaunty, jocular tone for which the Rat Pack was known. This is a well-assembled collection that rescues some worthy songs from obscurity Sinatra's "Mr. Success," Davis' "A Lot of Livin' to Do" and maintains the swinging mood set by Sinatra, Martin, and Davis in their Rat Pack mode.

    The Return of the BEST

    An awesome collection of well known songs by the ONLY 3 KINGS OF COOL who ever lived. Put this CD on and imagine yourself as a smart-dressing, smart-mouthed Charlie. Great times with great music.

    The Kings of Kool

    Even if you don¿t have a chauffer, limousine and stacks of folding green you can place this CD in your player, slip off your mary janes and with a little gasoline take yourself back to the time when music was better than today¿s. This CD features studio tracks from the 3 core Rat Pack members FAS, Dag and Smokie. I personally didn¿t have any of these studio tracks so I found it to a real barn burner. So buy it and let¿s start the action!
