Product Description

Amazon.ca

Timed to coincide with the release of the 2001 remake of the Sinatra, Martin and Davis anti-classic Ocean's 11, Eee-O 11 serves less as a best-of than an introduction to the high-living nightclub ethos the Rat Pack embodied. Along with some true knockouts, mostly from Frank's catalogue, the collection includes some impossible corn (a "When You're Smiling" that seems to be putting Dino himself to sleep) along with a couple of straitjacketed studio takes on the Pack's onstage antics (both Sammy duets). Handily, it culls one of the original movie's few high points--the rousing Davis blues that provides this disc's title--for a closer. Those drawn in by the newer film will find this a welcome package, as will swingin' initiates looking for a road-trip CD soundtrack. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars A Kick in the Head Feb. 11 2002
Format:Audio CD
No doubt Capitol intended this album to be the proverbial bucket of cold water in the listener's face. It is, and it works. From the rousing Sinatra opener, through Dean Martin's ultimate lounge hit to a grin-inducing 'Sam's Song' by Martin and Sammy Davis Jr., Eee-O-11 is a selection of pure fun. Probably the best 1960s party album in recent memory.
Is this essential Sinatra? All of these songs are available elsewhere, and Dean must have performed 'Volare' hundreds of times. It is a great set for those who want to sample the less serious side of all three singers in one easy package, and each was a talent in his own right. If the bombast gets a bit out of hand ('I'm Gonna Live 'til I Die' must be the loudest thing Sinatra ever recorded, even if it is riveting), there are some real treasures here as well -- especially among the Sinatra numbers. 'Witchcraft' and 'The Lady is a Tramp' have been released at least five or six times in the past decade, but somehow when you're listening to these guys having a ball with a string of uptempo tunes, the ice melting in your glass, you don't mind paying for the privilege of owning maybe just one more CD with a few familiar songs.

The new Ocean's 11 movie may be as good as the 41 year old original. But the question is," Can any of the fellows in the new rendition compare to these originals"? Notably, there are no big actors around today with the musical/performing heft of the originals!! Frank,Dean, and Sam were simply one a kind ,the Beatles for grownups, something seemingly unimaginable today. This CD just proves the point,as if it needed any more proof. Two of Frank's semi-rare 1950's singles, "I'm Gonna Live..",and "Mr. Success" are here, and perhaps they steal the show. "Tender Trap" and "You Make Me Feel so Young" have always been in his standard repertoire,but fit the fun and high living mode here to a T. "Me and My Shadow", with Sam and Frank is their only studio recording together, more great fun.Sam's "Lotta Living to Do", "Birth of the Blues" and E-O-ll just add to the fun. And Dean's "Volare" is his best effort,though his singular tipsiness is apparent on all his efforts...All in all,a great show not to be missed,even if there are no live versions.Sam's Song is fine here, but the fun and laughs are way over the top on the live performances! Go for it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sitting on Top of the World June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is not live album. It's just a collection of their songs. Released when remake of Ocean's Eleven is released. Sinatra is singin' "I'm Gonna Live Till I Die", "(Love Is) The Tender Trap", "Mr.Sucsess", "You Make Me Feel Son Young", "The Lady Is A Tramp", Chicago" and Witchcraft". You can also hear him dueting with Sammy Davis Jr. on "Me And My Shadow".
Dean Martin is singin' "Ain't That A Kick in A Head", "Volare", "When You're Smiling", "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You", "Sittin' On Top Of The World" and helping Sammy on "Sam's Song".
Sammy Davis Jr. is singin' "Too Close For Comfort", "A Lot Of Livin' To Do", "The Birth Of The Blues" and "Eee-O Eleven" and two previously mentioned duets.
The collection is great, sound too. So, Swing This, Baby!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eee-O-11...It's a gas!! June 30 2002
Format:Audio CD
I had bought a Rat Pack collaboration before this one and quite frankly, it was bombsville. An 18-karat dud. So when I bought Ee-O-11...I was hoping for something with more songs, better quality, and more of a kick. My hopes were high. Thankfully, I was not let down.
This album more than made up for the previous. The songs are a real testament for the talent these guys had. Some of the highlights are "Ain't That A Kick In The Head", "Eee-O-11", "I'm Gonna Live Til I Die"(I've adopted that one as my theme song...). The whole mix is of such great quality of sound that I can picture myself sitting in the front row at the Sands. The upbeat tunes are equally spaced between the soulful croones so it's impossible to get bored.
I suggest that anyone who likes to swing and have a good time buy this album. It'll liven up any clam-bake and will defintely make you look like a big-leaguer instead of a harvey.
