Dean Martin


We don't always get to cover as many of the classics as I'd like, but that hardly means we've forgotten. As I type this from Kik Axe Music™ HQ, there's no less than five photographs of DEAN MARTIN adorning the walls of my office. Like his RAT PACK brothers, there's a 99% chance that Dino was cooler than you and lived a life that was more rock and roll than most could ever hope for. BecauseThe King of Cool is being celebrated this week with the release of one all-new collection and an expanded one, we're hooking up some Kik Axe Music readers with some classic tunes. Would you like a chance to WIN either CLASSIC DINO: THE BEST OF DEAN MARTIN or the newly-expanded edition of THE ESSENTIAL DEAN MARTIN?
TO ENTER: Send an email to WIN[at]KikAxeMusic.com with the subject line of "DEAN MARTIN" - and include your name and mailing address. Also, PICK ONE of the CD's listed below (you'll only get one, not both) that you'd like to own. We'll draw winners for each at random on, about, or before June 27, 2011. You may only enter once. Incomplete and/or duplicate entries will be discarded. Good Luck!
