Description

Full performer name: Frank Sinatra/Dean Martin/Sammy Davis, Jr.

Compilation producers: Cheryl Pawelski, Frank Collura.

Includes Rat Pack quotes compiled by Bill Zehme.

Digitally remastered by Bob Norberg (Capitol Mastering).

Despite the fact that all the participants are dead and there's no single or video, EEO-ELEVEN: THE BEST OF THE RAT PACK still managed to make it onto the Billboard album charts. Though the Sinatra fanbase was still wide enough circa 2002, it was the success of the OCEAN'S ELEVEN remake (the original film was a cinematic rat pack tour de force) that pushed the Chairman and his pals to the forefront of the collective consciousness. While there are a couple of discs available of the Sinatra/Martin/Davis "rat pack" performing together, this is basically collection of some of the best-known recordings by the individual artists. While hardcore lounge-heads will already have most of this material, EEE-O ELEVEN provides an excellent entry point into the smoothly self-assured swing and pop of these larger-than-life American icons.
