Dino: The Essential Dean Martin is a 2004 compilation album by Dean Martin, released on September 6, 2004. It contains thirty tracks, twenty from Capitol and ten from Reprise. It has since been reissued in two separate special editions, one in 2005 (augmented with a live disc) and one in 2011 (featuring six bonus tracks).[3]

Alongside track listings and photographs, the liner notes include contributions from Stevie Van Zandt, Deana Martin and Gail Martin Downey. Van Zandt writes about the experience of watching Dean Martin's appearance as the host of the episode of The Hollywood Palace which featured the first US television appearance of The Rolling Stones. Deana Martin shares her memories of the recording session for "Memories Are Made of This" while Downey recalls Martin's explanation of how an empty bottle of Coca-Cola helped make "Houston" a hit.

The album was certified "Gold" in 2004 and "Platinum" in 2006.[4]

Track listing

The included version of "You're Nobody till Somebody Loves You" is the 1960 Capitol album track rather than the charting 1964 Reprise version: William Ruhlmann of AllMusic suggests that the substitution was made in order to reduce the number of similar Reprise arrangements present.
