Dean "Tex" Martin: Country Style

Dino Latino is an album by Dean Martin. Recorded during August 1962, the album is a collection of Latin standards and popular songs composed in the same vein. While the A-side of the record features five uptempo songs (among them are "Mañana" (popularized by Peggy Lee) and "South of the Border", which he later re-recorded for the soundtrack of The Silencers), B-Side consists of five ballads. All songs on the album were arranged and conducted by Don Costa, except for the closing track, "La Paloma", which is credited to Chuck Sagle. Originally released as Reprise LP R(S)-6054 ('S' distinguishing the stereo pressing), the album's tracks made their CD debut as part of the Bear Family box set Everybody Loves Somebody (BCD 16343). A subsequent two-on-one CD (together with Dean Martin's preceding album French Style) by Collectors' Choice restored the original running order.
