The session went from 8:30PM to 12:30AM and the song was released as Capitol single #2589 later that year. “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie…THAT’S AMORE!”
Today in 1959, Dean Martin was continuing sessions for A Winter Romance at Capitol Records in Hollywood. On an L.A. summer night from 7:30PM – 11PM, Dean was recording songs including “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm.”
Sixty years ago today, on July 29, 1959, Dean Martin was in the studio in Los Angeles recording the song “White Christmas” and “Winter Wonderland” at the Capitol Records Tower from 9PM – 11:30PM. The sessions were for his album A Winter Romance, which would be released in November of that year.
